Let’s get right to it: I want to take a look at a very low mileage Glacier Blue 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe located in New York. Glacier Blue 911s have graced these pages a couple of times in the past and it’s a color that always draws attention. But here we start to see the fullness of its color to much better effect. The negative to a color like Glacier Blue is that in many lighting conditions it looks washed out, basically a dull white, and it is hard to capture the color so that it actually looks blue. They’ve done that here, perhaps through a combination of better photography and some touching up, but they’ve done it none the less. Combined with a navy blue interior we experience the full force of the color’s name: it’s appearance is icy like the waves of a cold sea crashing against a glacier. It’s a strange environment to model upon a car’s appearance, but it does produce a sort of natural look that is quite different from the typical earthy colors we associate with nature. As we’d expect the combination is quite rare – stated to be only 160 in this exterior color; no word on how many in this combination – and with only 19,615 miles on this one we also can expect a high price. But this high?

This is a rare 1984 Porsche 911 in Glacier Blue. Only 160 coupes were painted this color in 1984, 7% of all Porsches produced in 1984 were done in this Glacier Blue. It has a beautiful navy blue interior. The 19,615 miles are original, powered by a numbers matching 3.2L drivetrain. Nut and Bolt restoration was preformed by Import Auto Haus in Huntington Station , NY, with all the paint work preformed by Blue Ribbon Auto in Bayshore, NY. This is a show ready, concourse level one vehicle. It’s a perfect edition to anyone’s collection!

We’ve seen some very high prices for low-mileage Carreras though in most cases that mileage was still quite a bit lower than the one here and they were the later G50-equipped Carreras. That makes this one a tough sell and part of my interest is in what happens to it. The Glacier Blue over Navy combination does work in this 911s favor though and it presents very well. On rarity alone there’s certainly some value here, but with the market softening for these classic 911s it’s tough to make a case for one at nearly $85K right now. Add in that we have no word on its historical documentation nor its maintenance history and we’re left with a good bit of leg work. So I don’t think it will sell – not at this price – but my is it a pretty 911.
Very nice pictures, but why a full restoration and paint work with only 19K miles? I would rather see what it was like in original condition. Maybe it was the time not the miles…
This car looks to be in stunning condition though I think additional photos would help the seller.
I, too, wondered about why a restoration would be required. But from what I can see, a lot of recent work has been performed. Who knows what the motivation was but it seems hard to argue with the results.
Wish I had ordered my Cayman GT4 in this color.
I too had wondered about the restoration work given the mileage and it’s partly why I’m curious about its history. Could be nothing more than it just not being in great storage over all those years, but who knows. If the interior and paint were totally original, then it might have a shot at this price.
@Will – Damn, that’d have been fantastic!
