Based on the pics you posted.....I think it's the 964. Check the turn signal/ vent area.

I loved that front end styling. After that car they started flattening the headlight bulges down into the hood.

Tough call, since they're so heavily modified. The bumper definitely looks like 964.

Tough to say there, too. Those are interchangeable, if I remember correctly. Sometimes you'll even see these:

Looking at these two side-by-side...

...I honestly think the sheetmetal between 930 and 964 is pretty close, if not identical.

Well that answers that. I love the styling of either of those models. They seem to be very similar anyways. I'd like to see the styling go back that way with the hood line. I know they switched back to round headlights for a while.

Personally I've always liked the 993 and early 911 body style as far as Porsches go. One's the culmination of Air-cooled capability and the other's the beginning of a legend.
