July 1989 signals the end of an era as production of the "G" series 911 Carrera and 911 Turbo ends.

The all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera 4, presented in November 1988 to mark the 25th anniversary of the 911, heralds a new generation of the successful model. Highlights of this sports car, referred to internally as the 964, include a new 3.6-litre engine, as well as an aerodynamically optimised body with plastic front and rear ends and an automatic spoiler. The 911 Carrera 4 is marking the 25th birthday of the 911 and featuring 85 per cent new components all round. For the first time, Porsche offers all-wheel drive to customers in general, the air-cooled six-cylinder displacing 3.6 litres and developing maximum output of 250 bhp.

Marking the 80th birthday of Professor Ferdinand “Ferry" Porsche, the Company presents the new Carrera “964" as a Carrera available also without four-wheel drive. Another new feature is Tiptronic with two gearshift lanes for either automatic or manual gearshift. Both Carrera 2 and Tiptronic will be available to the customers for the new model year 1990.

The Porsche 944 S2 is unveiled to the press in October 1988 for the MY 1989. Its three-litre four-valve engine is not only regarded as the world's largest and most powerful four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine, but also earns particular praise from journalists thanks to its harmonious power delivery.
