THE 911 CABRIOLET

A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. Porsche's first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a 'halfway house' design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-liter form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered top (electrically powered from 1985) featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This US-market 911 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet was completed at the Porsche factory in July of 1986. The Porsche was finished much as it appears today, in a lovely Grand Prix White exterior color, over blue interior and carpets, perfectly matched by a blue convertible top. According to the CARFAX report on file, the 911 was sold new on the East Coast, but has resided in California since the mid-1990s, while in the care of just a few long-term owners. Showing 88,853 documented miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, the Cabriolet presents in lovely condition throughout and gives you the feel of a car that has been well cared for since new. The exterior paint is estimated to be 80% original, while the interior is intact as delivered when new. Correct black-center Fuchs wheels are fitted, and many factory decals and markings remain intact in the various compartments.

A very usable "young-timer", this fine 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet offers brisk performance and an abundance of torque on tap from the overhead cam six-cylinder engine, and is sold with the original books, tools, spare wheel and inflator, spare keys, and many service records. Ideal for Sunday drives with the recently serviced A/C blasting or participation in the many Cars and Coffee events around the country - or the Ramshorn Rally specifically designed for air-cooled Porsches - this classic Porsche Carrera Cabriolet deserves serious consideration.
