1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I have focused much more on the value end of the 911 spectrum this week and the car featured here falls into a bit of a middle position along that scale. The 1983 and 1984 model years tend to represent the best value opportunities depending upon whether you would prefer the 911SC or the 3.2 Carrera. You cannot really go wrong with either, but each has its own personality that may suit some better than others. Overall, however, the key is finding one in the condition and with the mileage that makes you most comfortable – and that fits within your budget. Here we have one from the lower-mileage section of the market: a Grand Prix White 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Florida, with 59,900 miles on it. These are the 911s that, for many of us, invoke the most nostalgia for the marque and they came along at an important time for the model itself. That they can still be had for fairly reasonable values makes them all the better.

This is the shape that comes to mind when I think of the 911: circular headlight surrounds pointing forward, a slightly raked windshield, and a sloping back with a pronounced tail jutting to the rear. That means I am a whale tail guy when it comes to the 911 Coupe so the basic look here is exactly how I’d select one. Well, other than the Grand Prix White exterior, though the various black trim pieces at least provide a nice contrast to break things up a little. The condition here looks good inside and out, though I would be curious about the paint work on the fenders just to be sure there is nothing problematic going on there. The asking price is definitely on the higher end and would be more likely to see a sale were this a later G50-equipped model. For an ’84 it’s probably going to have to come down to a little below $40K before buyers really take notice.

  1. Am I the only one who would pause when considering this car due to the burnouts all over the lot where the photos were taken:)

    Seriously, this is exactly the sweet spot of air-cooled cars. Super solid, dependable. A fair amount of maintenance was done prior to the car being placed for sale but service history is really important.

  2. Wow! a mid-80’s 911 with low mileage and what looks to be maintained well for under 50k??
    I agree w/m491….the car sitting in the middle of burn-outs freaks me out a little LOL
    show me the receipts of what was & was not done and if your in the market this looks to be solid..
    GPW wears great on this body style, red interior would seal the deal for me….
    friend of mine has an 89 930 GPW/Red that I covet….has 44k on the odo…is going to sell it…wish I had the disposable $$$ but I’m saving for something with a black horse on the hood

  3. In June of 2014 this car had a reported 61,192 miles on it at NY State Inspection. I presume the seller knows that and I think you can sort of see the odo showing 61 in one of the photos. More than the burnout marks the intentional odo listing concerns me. Other than that this car presents extremely well, and I agree GPW is always a nice color.

  4. Good catch Howard! The odometer does show 61,335 miles. Still not bad mileage for this model year, but that does make the mileage listing in the ad a little curious.

    I’m less worried about the tire marks. It appears to be just a random parking area in an open space and doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with this car. I could be wrong about that, but it wasn’t something that really concerned me when I saw it.

  5. I almost get the feeling the seller lists it under 60k as if there is a premium for an under 60k car as compared to a 61k car
