The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963 and these final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. Launched in late 1983, and reviving the 'Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, the 3.2 is often regarded as the quintessential 1980s sports car.

The all-alloy, flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164cc, contributing a torque-rich 231 bhp - enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds.  Cars built from September 1986 onwards were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanised bodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long-lasting.


The 'Sport' variant had upgrades to the shock absorbers and aerodynamic spoilers back and front, however, the standard UK specification was actually quite extensive and, if needed, more extras could be added from the optional equipment list. This is a driver's car, designed for intelligent enthusiasts, and isn't equipped with today's ubiquitous airbags, anti-lock brakes, and 'we won't let you hurt yourself' electronics but did benefit from safety features of the day including a collapsible steering column, dual-circuit braking with discs all round, and deformable body contours. The Carrera 3.2 was the definitive 911 prior to the arrival of the 964 in 1989 and still remains an engaging drive and a practical and usable grand tourer. 


This particular car, A828 DMO was manufactured in November 1983 and registered new by Heddell & Deeks of Dorset. It was finished in Guards Red with a Black Hood ( G1V9 ) and Black leather interior and was ordered with the following options; Twin-scale speedometer MPH/KPH, Recoil bumpers, Forged alloy wheels, Electric aerial with three speakers, Rear fog light, Front and rear spoilers, Tinted glass, and the Leather Interior.


The car was originally serviced by the supplying dealer up until 1986 with the mileage logged at 7,447 and subsequently looked after by a mixture of main dealers and Porsche specialists, with the most recent service carried out by Autofarm. The current indicated mileage of 45,600 is corroborated by the car's depth of history and incredible 25 documented services. It was purchased from Porsche Centre Solihull in 2017 and after a full service by them developed a gearbox fault, however, it was agreed that the gearbox would be fully rebuilt under warranty and a 'short shift' gear lever and a brand new clutch were fitted at the same time.  More recently, the Guards Red paintwork has been treated to a Gtechniq Ceramic Coating, the interior refreshed, and the wheels refurbed including new centre caps and wheel nuts. The rear spoiler louvre has also been repainted, the engine detailed, and all new bulbs fitted including the dashboard.


This well-sorted package is supplied with its original book pack,  three keys including a new Torch Key and the original Red Key, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The car is provided with a Tonneau cover and wind deflector and the roof is said to be in perfect condition with a non-yellowed rear screen. A perfect opportunity to purchase a well maintained and clearly cared for example of this marque still sporting its original Panasonic Radio Cassette and Hirshman Aerial.
