The 3.2 Carrera is regarded as the definitive development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963 before the evolution to Type 964. These ‘last of cars’ were the most tractable and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design.
The all-alloy, flat-6, fuel injected engine received a final displacement of 3.2 litres developing a torquey 217hp - enough to thrust the slippery new Carrera from 0-100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds.
One of the most collectable 911’s on the market is the 3.2 Carrera with factory optioned widebody look from the 911 Turbo and produced from 1984 through to 1989.
Known as option code M491, the costly Wide-Body package wasn’t just cosmetic offering aggressive wider wheel arches, rear spoiler and wider Fuchs wheels, it also included cross-drilled discs with four-piston aluminium calipers and suspension taken directly from the 911 Turbo.
The option to upgrade to M491 didn’t come cheap with prices it was ranging from $10,000-$15,000 depending on the year of manufacture, which kept production numbers low making genuine M491 equipped models incredibly hard to find and very collectable today.
We’re proud to offer this original right hand drive and genuine 3.2 Carrera Wide-Body in ordered in Grand Prix White Guards Red over Black leather with extended belt.
Delivered new by Hamiltons of South Yarra, it was equipped automatic speed control, sound package, air-conditioning, luggage compartment in velour and soft look leather seats. With fastidious ownership over the past three decades and its genuine 82,500kms makes for the perfect first Porsche experience or the addition to any 911 collection.
The drive is also phenomenal- well balanced with characteristic 3.2 litre torque and spine tingling whirring purring air-cooled soundtrack from the rear.
With a total of just 102 911 cars making their way to Australia in 1988, with a small number of them being wide-body variants, they are rarely seen and even less rarely available to own.
With both local and international interest beginning to soar, if there was ever a time to invest in a rare Porsche, this example without a doubt presents a very sound acquisition.
