1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 - Fresh Kicks

The man behind Barramundi Design reveals his personal weekend cruiser

Jul 2, 2013

It might shock some faithful SS readers, but we have a Porsche from Japan that isn’t built by Rauh-Welt Begriff. Don’t get us wrong… we love RWB and all their widebody sexiness; however at Tokyo Auto Salon it was refreshing to see this beautiful ‘92 964 Carrera 2 owned by Noriaki Miyamoto, the founder of Barramundi Design.

Just to give a little background behind Miyamoto-san, he used to run a company that imported forged wheels from the US. Frustrated with long delivery times and steep prices, he decided to create his own line of custom forged rims—something that hasn’t been very successful in Japan. But since 2010, Barramundi (also referred to as BMD Forged) has been doing quite well offering four multi-piece wheel designs with three more coming in the near future. Miyamoto-san admitted to us his top customers are mostly Honda and Nissan guys, but he plans to expand into other markets and his personal Porsche is just one example of how he’s going to get there.

Miyamoto-san’s 964 has a simple spec list, so simple we decided not to even print it. It’s slammed at just the right ride height via custom 40-way adjustable steel-body coilovers. The exterior of the Carrera 2 is more or less bone stock. If you know Porsches, you’ll recognize the 993 GT2 body conversion that bolts straight on the 964. Pop the trunk and the 964 still houses the original air-cooled flat-six. Finally, the real star of this project is the wide rollers. Fitting up to the GT2 fenders perfectly, the Fogo design is Barramundi’s newest design, spec’d to 18x10.5" up front and 13" wide in the back.

This 964 is a beautiful and classic car stock, and for Miyamoto-san it provides the perfect platform to show off what matters most… its fresh kicks.
