The 911 3.2 Carrera

1984 saw the launch of a replacement for the successful SC series, and a revival of the Carrera name.The new 3.2 liter alloy engine gave the 911 a more usable torque-curve, and with the upgrade to Getrag's G50 transaxle starting in 1987, the 911 was as fully developed as ever. The 3.2 Carrera was the last iteration of the original 911 series, and many Porsche enthusiasts consider these the best driving 911s of all.


The Motorcar Offered

Completed at Zuffenhausen in August 1988, this excellent Carrera Cabriolet was finished as seen today in Diamond Blue over a partial leather Marine Blue interior. It appears the car has been in the San Diego area since new; the CARFAX report records local annual smog inspections starting in 1992. In its current ownership since 2011, the Carrera has benefited from regular maintenance, most recently an engine out service where the clutch was replaced.

The condition supports the indicated 68,000 miles, with factory original finishes present in many areas, and most factory applied decals and emblems still in place. Offered with Porsche's Certificate of Authenticity and a clean CARFAX report, this sporting Carrera Cabriolet is a well cared for, matching numbers example that should offer the now owner much joy down the road.
