Known History

Developed under the watchful eye of Porsche Chief Executive Peter Schutz, the 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the September 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show. Visually indebted to the outgoing 911 SC, the newcomer wore a revised front valance complete with auxiliary driving lamps and a subtle 'Carrera' script on its engine lid. Available in coupe, targa and cabriolet guises, it remained faithful to established 911 practice by employing all-round independent torsion-bar suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and rack and pinion steering. Estimated to be eighty-percent new, the model's 3164cc (hence '3.2') flat-six engine was credited with developing 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to five-speed transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and 153mph, the Carrera 3.2 was progressively developed over the course of its six-year production run. Amid the various interior changes and suspension tweaks, the arrival of the new Getrag G50 gearbox for the 1987 model year was welcomed by many. Lighter and more positive than its 915 predecessor, it made an already great driving experience even better. However, those looking for that little bit extra in terms of poise and road presence could opt for the 'Sport' package (later known as 'Sport Equipment') which included a deeper front valance, 'tea tray' rear spoiler, Bilstein shock absorbers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with black centres.

 

Finished in white with royal blue leather upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "very good" (interior trim, bodywork, paintwork) or "excellent" (engine, gearbox, electrical equipment) condition. While, he goes on to say that: "A considerable sum has been spent in preparing this car for sale including new stainless steel exhaust, new clutch, new heat exchangers and new brakes. The G50 gearbox has also been overhauled. The car benefits from an electric roof, central locking and electric windows / mirrors". Stated to have covered just 95,000 miles from new, this superb 911 Carrera Sport Convertible is offered for sale with an extensive history file (including past owner records), MOT certificate valid until June 2010 and current road fund licence.
