1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

It’s funny, even within the world of high performance (like the Carrera RS featured Wednesday) and extremely interesting 911s (like the Amethyst 964 featured on Tuesday) I still can come across examples of a relatively basic 3.2 Carrera and really be captivated by it. Such is the case with this paint-to-sample Sapphire Blue 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Nashville. I came across it and immediately was taken in by it. There isn’t anything particularly awe inspiring about this Carrera; it’s just a nice looking example in what appears to be good condition and the price isn’t too bad. While color itself always is a matter of taste I think for those who do enjoy it the total package here is just the sort of thing many of us are trying to find.

I will be interested to see whether bidding can reach the BIN price (or, conversely whether a buyer simply ends the auction early via that BIN price). We have seen the 911 market take some small steps back over the past year and given the mileage I suspect this price is close to the high end of where we’d expect it to sell. The color combination ultimately may determine that, regardless it should serve as a nice barometer of where the current market sits for these early Carreras. Bidding currently is at $25,100 so there is a ways to go, but there’s also plenty of time left. The Sapphire Blue exterior is very subtle and I’d love to see it in person to get a better sense of it. The contrasting Blue interior works well here and looks in good shape. To take us back to the Amethyst 964 and my musings over that color contrast, I think the bright Cobalt Blue interior of that 911 could actually work really well with this sort of exterior. But I digress, this is a nice looking Carrera in its own right and if it’s mechanically sound then it should have plenty of life left in it. For complete originality the spoiler situation will need to be addressed: it’s either missing its front spoiler or, probably more likely, it has had the whale tail added. For aesthetics that’s a minor point, but most buyers will look for consistency there especially given that Porsche recommends the 911 to have either both or none for proper dynamic stability. The radio has been upgraded as well, but again for many this would not be a major detraction. All in all, a promising 911.

    Nice color, too bad about the paint variation. It would probably needs full respray to match.
