ARES DESIGN FOR
PORSCHE 964
TARGA

For the Porsche 964 Targa, the design brief for ARES was to reimagine what a modern-era incarnation of the classic model would resemble. The car had to retain the iconic looks of the original while matching its current levels of performance and practicality.

The thoroughly re-engineered 964 now has the engine, gearbox and chassis from a modern-day Porsche 997 while Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system and the 997’s stability control are included. In short, it’s a stunning contemporary reinterpretation of the 964 Targa.

PERFORMANCE

The beating heart of the ARES for Porsche 964 Targa is its modern mechanics, belonging to the 997 generation of the famous German sports car. Onboard, the classic 6-cylinder boxer engine, but with water cooling and displacement increased to 3996cc. This engine, capable of 470hp, is driven by the dual-clutch 7-speed PDK transmission.

The 964’s suspension and chassis are also updated, allowing enhanced driving performance inline with the new, and more powerful, engine. The 964 comes equipped with the advanced PASM - Porsche Active Suspension Management system, which continually monitors the behaviour of each wheel and absorber, allowing the driver to choose between different driving modes.

ARES’ know-how in creating cars unique in style and performance is combined with the iconic Porsche 911. The final result is the one of the finest reimagined Porsche 964 on the planet.
