The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 has a unique significance among Porsche enthusiasts because it represents the ultimate development of the 'classic' 911. Introduced in 1984, they were the last and most well-developed of the torsion bar suspended cars. They have no power steering and very few extraneous accessories, making them extremely appealing to driving purists. At the same time, however, they feature fuel injection, fully galvanized bodies, reasonable climate control, and other creature comforts to make them imminently usable today, even as daily drivers. Compared to the earlier SC's, they also have the 3.2 liter motor, which addressed the only two true weak spot's of the SC's 3.0: the chain tensioners and the pop-off valve in the airbox. The 3.2 also makes appreciably more power, and both engines enjoy a reputation of indestructibility. This difference in power is even more noticeable with the European-spec engine, which made 231hp instead of the 214hp of the US version. This era (1983, specifically) also saw the introduction of a genuine convertible, the first ever made of the 911, and Porsche's first convertible since the last 356 of 1965.
This particular 911 is an immaculate and very original car.
The low mileage is true and correct. It appears to have had two owners in the United States.
All indicate that the car has been very well cared for. It has been used very minimally since 2005, and was shown at a few Concours D'Elegance and other Shows. The car was serviced a few hundred miles ago (fluids, belts etc.) in August of 2015 to ensure that the car is now ready to enjoy and running beautifully. The top rear plastic window is the only weak part on this beauty. The tires were recently replaced and have only a few hundred miles on them.
Cosmetically, this car is in stunning unmolested condition. The paint and interior both appear to be original and are excellent. The paint has extremely light road rash on the front surfaces, but is otherwise free of significant blemishes. Naturally, the car is free of rust and the panel fit is excellent throughout. All glass and lenses are excellent.
The interior is equally nice. The carpets show no significant wear. the leather remains supple and intact throughout the car. The dashboard and gauges are free of cracks and all original, All gauges work, including the clock. The heater works well.
The engine compartment is unmodified and very clean. The engine itself is completely dry, both above and below, and the remainder of the undercarriage is very clean as well. There is no corrosion or any locations where the factory undercoating has been compromised. The trunk is original and clean. All carpeting is present, as is the original space-saver spare tire. The tools are not present.
This car drives exactly as one would expect after visually inspecting it. Driving the car barely differs from when it was new, perfectly embodying the classic Porsche experience. This is heightened by the fact that is an open air experience, which makes it all the easier to enjoy the legendary wail of the flat-6. The car shifts, brakes, and corners as it should, and the driving experience highly communicative and satisfying.
This car is a collector quality example of this classic and important model. It is in impeccable condition, both cosmetically and mechanically, and has the documentation to substantiate this fact, as well as the car's fairly low mileage. Finally, the car is fitted with desirable options and comes with the original books in the Porsche holder. Currently the car has 55k miles.
