1986 Porsche 911 Carrera

Here is our counter to yesterday’s low mileage no reserve Carrera: a 1986 Grand Prix White Porsche 911 Carrera, located in California, which has seen 162,000 miles. We’ve seen the rapid escalation of the air-cooled 911 market, but my interest here is on the effect that rise has had on higher mileage, less pristine vehicles. Can those still be had a reasonable value or have they too shot through the roof?

I really love the look of this car. The profile brings to mind my dad’s 911 from when I was a kid. For a 30 year-old-car with more than 160K miles the condition here appears quite good and that mileage really speaks to the potential longevity of the 911 and the quality of the engines. The engine on this Carrera has been rebuilt, but it sounds like the rebuild came after more than 150K miles had been put on it. It has had a long life, but in its current condition it may have quite a few more years left in it, and given that it is a one-owner car we can expect the seller to be capable of providing ample details on its history. With bidding currently at $22,100 we’re well below the top figures for a 3.2 Carrera seen lately, though admittedly still quite a bit higher than where this car would have sold 8 months ago. Still, for a buyer looking for a decent value on a driver-quality Carrera, this could make for a good option.

  1. I wouldn’t call this car extremely high mileage. Sure its higher,, but its a testament to the quality of these cars, and the markets acceptance of higher mile examples. These cars can do 200K miles on original engines and transmissions with proper care . The bodies will last forever.

  2. I’d call it it extremely high price for a pretty high mileage car. Things are going crazy in the 911 world id say
