1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Some cars just have all the juicy details. Today’s car is one of those. This is one of many G-Body Porsche 911 Carreras, but I can probably guess it is the only one finished in the very rare Lagoon Green Metallic over a leather-to-sample interior … and over 276,000 miles on the odometer. Where to even begin?

This is a stunning 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe with 276,100 miles on the odometer. This car is finished in its original and extremely rare Lagoon Green Metallic paint with a complementary Tan Sports Seat leather interior (Interior code 99 – Leather to Sample). There are many things that have been done to this car which we will list in the paragraphs below; however, and most important, the top end of the motor was rebuilt about 6 years ago (at approximately 236,000 miles) and she runs and drives very strong.

This 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe has been in the possession of the current owner for 12 years and is a well kept and maintained car. The exterior is in very good condition, being rust free and for at least the last 10 years, never being driven in inclement weather. This has the sunroof delete feature which is highly desirable and a high performance exhaust system which sounds aggressive which suits the car well. More robust torsion bars were installed to improve handling as was the front air dam to increase stability at speed. You will notice that the ugly US rear bumper has been replaced with the European option with smaller rubber bumpers and amber lighting.

Over the past 10 years, all service has been performed by qualified mechanics from the Connecticut Porsche Club; the car is tight, the engine is strong, the gearbox is fluid and has no issues and the clutch is in perfect condition. She comes with the original owners manual and books. The tires are in great condition and mounted on real Fuchs, she has cruise control, the rear window wiper, a central locking system and sports seats.

This Carrera with its heritage, rarity and originality is one of the best that you will find available. The value of these cars has been increasing each quarter and will most likely continue on an upward swing for years to come. There will only be less of them in the future and many are shipping overseas everyday. If you are a serious collector, you cannot afford to let the opportunity to own this pass you by. We have priced this vehicle to provide you the best deal on a car of this caliber. If you need any assistance with financing please let me know.

Lagoon Green Metallic is a rare shade that first showed up in 1987 and was last seen on see on the 964 in 1993. It wasn’t very popular with the G-Body cars seeing as it was offered for just 1987 and 1988 but also sprinkled in on some 928 and 968 models. Inside, the leather to sample isn’t anything other than a light tan but it is interested to note that the nice bolstered sport seats were optioned. As for the mileage, you don’t get that high without some serious care and probably rebuilding it once, if not twice.

I’m curious to see where this one ends up. 1987 G50s still bring very good money in the right situations, but I’m thinking the mileage might hold this one back just a tad. Wouldn’t shock me to see $50,000 given the rarity of the color and good options. Can’t wait to see where it ends.

    Visually looks like a nice driver in a good color combo.

    If it were on Bat you would see comments about:

    mismatched paint on doors
    different brands of tire on front & back omg
    poorly placed mat on driver’s side with leaf
    titanic levels of rust on underside

    This will be interesting to watch…nice color combo and very unusual…Per PGM re BaT…very true; the mismatched paint on the doors were the first thing I noticed too. It does sort of contradict the well cared for statement with mismatched tires. These cars rarely rust unless submerged…fully galavanized bodies were used since mid 1976… Yes, I would be surprised if the bottom end was not rebuilt once.

    $50K in a normal market would seem high…but this market is not normal
