They may look their age, but the 3.2 Carrera still manages to catch my eye. Some of that allure is nostalgic, but I think there’s more to it than that. They appear much lighter and with less wasted space than any of the modern 911s. I’ll admit in some colors, or just when they haven’t been well cared for, they can look boring or just plain old. But in good condition or in particular colors I’m drawn in and love to look these over. I don’t know exactly why I encounter that variance, but maybe others find the same. Either way, the one we see here is one of those that caught my eye: a dark blue over black 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Alabama, with 152,788 miles on it.

There is something I really like about this 911. Part of it is the color, which very subtly moves away from black to showcase its blue exterior. I had to look at it quite a few times just to get a sense of it. It’s just a little bit different and, like I said with a previous dark blue Carrera, for a color that seems very common we really don’t see many 911s from this era in this shade. Outside of the color, this 911 seems like it’d be a lot of fun. It has a few modifications to firm up the handling and some interior alterations to improve the feel and keep you in place during some spirited driving. For a car with more than 152K miles it also looks in good shape so we can hope it has seen appropriate maintenance throughout its life. Overall, this 911 seems like a good candidate for someone’s initial foray into the brand. Of course, all of this only makes sense if the price is right. Bidding right now sits at $30K, with reserve unmet, and ideally it could be had for not much more than that.
