The registry of remaining 1964 Porsche 911’s worldwide

Welcome to the Porsche 911 Registry with cars from 1964. In this first production year only 232 cars were produced. These cars all have specific features that define them from later production cars and now belong to the most sought after Porsches in the world. In this Registry we try to keep track of the 1964 cars and we’ll try to post as much info as we can. Right now the info on this website is outdated and rough, but we hope to be able to change that in the next months.

On behalf of the team of,

Erik Kouwenhoven (owner of 1964 car 300197 )

This registry is recognized and endorsed by 232 Registry, the official registry of early 911’s.
“Your site is an acceptable representation of the collected list of 1964 cars.”
