1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Complain about not finding enough interesting 911 Coupes and suddenly you start finding a few interesting 911 Coupes. Funny how that works. This particular Coupe won’t be of interest to those hoping for originality or something to add to a collection, but it is nonetheless an interesting option that should provide excellent possibilities for driving on both road and track. It is primarily the execution and attention to detail that I find most striking about this example. The exterior also presents quite well, something that is not always the case with track cars. A 911 like this takes us back to the model’s roots and serves as a reminder that while Porsche has become very much a luxury brand and the 911 itself remains one of the best luxury sports coupes on the market, much of the marque’s history lies in racing and it is always nice to see well executed examples from caring owners. Here we have a Granite Green Metallic 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in British Columbia, with around 118K kilometers on it (~73,300 miles).

I am sure I have missed many items, because i have done pretty much everything to this car. no expense was spared when this car was built . It weights around 2500lbs with half tank of fuel. very fun to drive and rewarding on track.

This 911 appears to be trying to provide the best of both worlds: a capable performer on the track that can be used on the street. It’s not likely the most comfortable street machine, but as a weekend back-road cruiser it could work quite well. A lightened road car is always something I particularly like to see, especially when it appears to have been executed well. That the owner claims to have a good deal of receipts and documentation should help buyers understand just what they’re getting. Bidding right now is at $36,100, which is actually a little above what I would expect for a modified 911 like this one. However, that hasn’t been enough to meet the seller’s reserve. I do think there’s been a lot of good work here and this should be an enjoyable 911, but the price has to be right and with the market slowing and even pulling back slightly for some models going much higher than current bidding probably only makes sense if this is exactly how you’d want your 911.

    Would one call this a restomod? Somehow it seems different to me. In some ways it seems more original, and then again not. I guess I am answering my own question. Whatever the answer, it seems like a delightful raw indulgence in a 911 driving experience. Just what I think I might really enjoy. And bonus for looking great too.
