The Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera is regarded as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963.
Perfectly blending the sporting traditions of its predecessors whilst adding strokes of modernity, comfort and amplified performance the 3.2 911 Carrera is a landmark car within a landmark car company.
So desirable today for a multitude of reasons from aesthetics, usability and its exceptional precision and poise on-road but mainly, it was the car that signalled the continuation of the neinelfer legacy after its pending demise.
Selling in record numbers unforeseen by Porsche at the time the 3.2 Carrera is one sportscar that can do Clark Kent during the week as well as it does Superman on the weekend.
Australian delivered and sold new through John Newell Porsche, Sydney on the 27th of September 1985, this meticulously well maintained 3.2 Carrera was ordered in the quintessentially 80’s Guards Red over Black trim and has travelled just 41,000 kilometres.
Corresponding with its certificate of authenticity, this car was optioned with the sports body (front and rear spoilers), electric mirrors, air conditioning and sunroof and is the very last of the high horsepower cars rated at 231hp before emissions regulations saw power drop to 207hp in 1986.
Inside, all indicative signs from the finish of the original steering wheel, leather dash, crystal clear orange/white 911 dials, even the original Eurovox radio, the plush and correct carpets to the seemingly untouched switch gear stepping inside this low kilometre car is like entering a time machine.
Accompanied by a comprehensive service history recorded within the original log books, delivery information, the warranty card as well as the Porsche certificate of authenticity this rare 911 meets the measures of the most fastidious connoisseur.
So well preserved for 32 years and serviced with classic Porsche specialists based in Sydney in August of this year this 911 drives and feels as though it’s right out of the box.
Offering the perfect blend of modern practicalities and classic motoring, there is no wonder the right examples of these 1980’s Carrera’s are experiencing a resurgence in popularity.
This Australian delivered, exceptionally well maintained and low kilometre 911 3.2 Carrera won’t be available for long.
