1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

In my continued efforts to keep an eye on the market for the 3.2 Carrera I present another low-mileage example that appears in exceptional condition. But, if I’m totally truthful, this one is more than that for me and my choice of it to feature isn’t just because it’s a potentially high-dollar Carrera. The 911 we see here is a Black 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Los Angeles, with Tan interior and 22,900 miles on it. It is outfitted pretty much exactly as I would have chosen. Black and Tan isn’t necessarily an exciting combination and both the black exterior and tan interior will have their detractors. But it’s my favorite combination for a car I plan to spend time driving. There are more exciting colors I’d love to have in the garage, but those are to look at. Add in the black Fuchs, sport seats, and the whale tail (with complementary front spoiler) and this is precisely what I would be looking for in a Carrera Coupe. As we’ll discuss below it’s priced well above what I’d desire from a 911 I wanted to drive, but in all other regards I absolutely love it!

I think it goes without saying that this asking price is too high. To see this sort of money I think at the very least it needs to be a G50-equipped Carrera and even though the mileage is very low, it probably needs to be even lower. As a case in point, last week in Scottsdale a Carrera did sell for $77K at the Gooding and Co. auctions. But that Carrera was an ’87, meaning it had the G50, it had a little under 12K miles, and it was a one-owner car in a rare color combination. As much as I love this 911 it lacks each of those factors. That doesn’t mean it won’t still fetch a very good price, just not this much. Everything appears to be original and correct and in excellent condition. Those factors on their own can take this car a long way, but at the end of the day I imagine this Carrera should be priced closer to $60K rather than $80K.

  1. Great looking car. Close to original. Has updated headlights (they are either Euro H4’s or US H1’s), painted trim rings, and an aftermarket leather shift boot cover. Upgrades are very tasteful and can be easily reversed – although I wouldn’t want to. Throw on a set of 16×7 front and 16×9 rear Fuchs and that thing would be complete.

  2. SPECTACULAR!
    Plus, sports seats and Blaupunkt EQ, very nice!

  3. You are right about price. Scottsdale prices were soft and the 911 market – except for rare, original cars – is showing signs of sanity. If you buy now hoping to make an investment, you are too late.

  4. I agree, it’s a car I would want own and drive, less the tint and the price.
