1983 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

This post is in our archives. Links in this post may have been updated to point to similar cars available to bid on eBay.

After a long hiatus, Porsche released the 911 Cabriolet in the fall of 1982 as a 1983 model. Not since the 356 Speedsters of the ’60s had Porsche gone topless. It proved very popular with 4,214 sold in its introductory year and since then, the 911 Cabriolet has been a favorite on the Porsche roster. Based on the numbers these cars aren’t particularly rare, however, they are always sought after.

Generally low mileage cars like this one are commanding upwards of $30K, with average retail on the 911SC Cab at $26K. This clean looking, low mileage car for sale in Binghamton, New York could be a steal for someone looking to get in to the 911 game.

Year: 1983
Model: 911 Cabriolet
Engine: 3.0L flat 6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 36,000 mi
Price: $15,500

This is a 1983 Porsche 911 convertible in very good shape, standard 5 speed, 36,000 original miles with current inspection, please call. Doug Hall- 607-722-0946

Well, Doug’s post here isn’t too full of information on the car with regards to history, condition, etc… but I’m sure a phone call will give you a sense if this car is for you or not. With an asking price of $15,500, and only 36K original miles, this car certainly warrants further investigation.

    Photos from 2011 are first red flags along with dirty engine bay.

    Steal of a deal if it checks out. A big “IF”.

    40% below market rate?!? If it looks too good to be true, it is. Caveat emptor.

    That turbo wing on the back looks silly. If you have to go with a wing then at least go with the carrera version. That price is probably a steal if the car is even just decent. The SC’s are not reallycracking 30 plus but I bet thats an easy flip into the mid 20’s with a good detail and some maintenance.
