1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

As I made my way home yesterday evening I couldn’t help but notice the number of drivers basking in the waning sunlight, taking advantage of an open air cockpit. We are smack in the heart of convertible season so why not enjoy some top-door motoring in classic style! This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in New York, would be an excellent car to have out on any evening fully appreciating the sound of the 3.2 liter air-cooled flat-six engine behind your ears.

There is a lightness conveyed by this interior and exterior paint combination that, though it wouldn’t be my preferred choice, fits well within the spirit of any cabriolet. The asking price for this 3.2 Carrera shows us just how the market has grown for these cars, though I wonder whether a car approaching 50K miles, even in apparently excellent condition, is quite ready to fetch that high a price. On the plus side, this car already has enough miles that enjoying it for a few years of casual motoring shouldn’t adversely affect its value.

    I owned a triple black 3.2 Carrera for about 10 years and although I thoroughly loved that car I can’t help but think that air cooled 911’s are going the way of the tulip. Great car, but for near as makes no difference to $50K, make sure that you are buying these cars for the sheer driving pleasure because I think that the investment value for all of these (E30 M3’s included) has already run its course.

    I don’t disagree. The way values have shot up recently there may be a long plateau coming, so any buyer is going to have to be patient. But it’ll be interesting to keep an eye on. I imagine the more rare colors will do well and obviously very low-mileage examples, but we’re certainly at a point where originality is paramount for any air-cooled 911.
