Porsche revived the evocative Carrera name - previously used for the competition orientated versions of the preceding 356 model - for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973, applying the evocative title to all 911 variants, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine, from the start of the 1984 model year. The revived name was part of a major revamp of the long-running 911, now selling better than ever, development of which had slowed while Porsche concentrated on meeting the ever increasing demand.
Although it remained an air-cooled 'flat six', the '3.2' motor was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system that at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. An ECU controlled the fuel and ignition systems for the first time on a 911, enabling the engine to be both more powerful and less thirsty. As a result, this enlarged and extensively revised power plant now produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor, endowing the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974, the bald statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breathtaking 13.6 seconds.

No major changes were made to the bodyshell, though there was a new front spoiler with integral fog lamps, while the number of models on offer remained at three: Coupé, Targa and Cabriolet. Thirty years on, Carrera 3.2s are now highly sought after and for very good reason, though finding one is not that easy.

This example arrived in Europe at the beginning of September 2014 having been purchased in Nebraska, USA. Finished in 'Chiffon Weiss' with brown leather interior, the car currently displays a total of circa 52,000 miles (approximately 83,700 kilometres) on the odometer and is described by the vendor as in generally good condition. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices, proof of paid EU taxes and a US Certificate of Title.

Trente années après leur apparition, les Carrera 3, 2 litres sont maintenant très recherchées et pour d'excellentes raisons. Il n'est donc pas facile de trouver une de ces voitures.
