1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

There is something to be said for a great interior in any car, but especially in a convertible. With the top down and the sun shining every little detail tends to stand out not only for the world to see but even for you as the driver. The interior is what we see and feel and it is what connects us to the car and provides immediate sensory feedback. A terrible interior can make a great car seem boring, and a great interior livens up even pedestrian models. Thus, it should come as little surprise that I really love the interior on this 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet. Other than the steering wheel, I have always loved the layout and look of the classic 911 interior and when presented in this shade of Tobacco leather I find that everything fits together perfectly, especially on a car in a shade of dark blue like the Marina Blue we see here. The contrast works to make the car seem more alive and driving more enjoyable. As we continue our slog through the variants of the 3.2 Carrera, this Cabriolet with 106K miles provides us another look at this escalating market and the current demand for driver-quality examples.

First things first: the front air dam appears to be missing, the cause of which needs to be addressed. Maybe not a big deal, maybe it is, but it’s definitely worth checking out. It also lacks the original radio, which would be a factor for any collector, but should be less of an issue for someone in search of a good driver. Those points aside, the rest of the car appears to be in good shape so give it a good PPI and insure there are no major issues lurking. Even with the recent surge in the 3.2 Carrera market I think this is priced too high, but if it could be had for under $30K then I think it’d be a nice value and could make for an excellent driver-quality Carrera Cabriolet.

    Had the same steering wheel on my 944 and I hated it too. Never understood why they changed the design from their awesome 3 spoke from the late 70s/early 80s, it was a much better looking wheel in my opinion.

    Other than that, I love this car and normally I don’t like convertibles.

    This is a very attractive driver – I love the contrast between interior and exterior on this one.

    Agree with Ed about the steering wheel – but, I think the reason is airbag, which is certainly not in the earlier 911 models (along with anti-lock brakes, traction control, PASM and a host of “driver aids” that get between the driver, the car and the road).

    Rob, nice write-up, as usual. One quibble – how can you use the term “slog” to describe this look at the air-cooled 911 variants. How about “trip” or “tour” or “delightful journey through the wonderful world of the most iconic of German sports cars”?

    Ken, you’re right, that probably was not the best word choice. Appreciate the kind words though and thanks for reading!

    That’s not an airbag wheel, just a boring new design for 1985 and up (my 944 was an 85.5). I had an airbag wheel on my 968 and I still preferred it to this design, which to my eyes were the ugliest wheel Porsche could have come up with.
