There is a depth to this Guards Red paint that is really striking and more readily apparent than on other 911s I’ve seen. I’m sure much of that is the photography and the way the lighting has been used, nonetheless it really shows the beauty of a red car well and why Guards Red was such a popular 911 color in the ’80s. I wish I saw more of them today. Here it is on a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with just 48,500 miles on it. I’d definitely want to see it in person to get a proper perspective on that paint, but at least from what we see here this is a really nice looking example.

The ad has provided us only the bare minimum of information so we have the pictures to help us judge the car and that’s about it. As I noted above, it does look really good and the interior looks in fine shape as well. ’85 was the first year for this style of seating in the 3.2 Carrera as the ’84 model had carried over the seats from the 911SC. So if that’s an important feature for you this is the model year that serves as your earliest source for these 911s. We aren’t told anything of this 911s history so some digging will have to be in order there.
With so many details left out I think this reserve auction will struggle to approach it’s fairly high BIN price. Even if everything is in order I’m not sure the market would support this price, but we should see bidding move up pretty quickly.
