A cabriolet parked next to the ocean. If you were trying to sell a Baltic Blue 911 Cabriolet, you could certainly come up with a worse place to photograph it. Idyllic settings are what make open-top motoring so appealing. With the top down even a hot summer day feels a lot cooler as you watch the scenery rush by and enjoy the ocean air. This Baltic Blue 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Tampa, Florida, comes in with 63,621 miles. While the 3.2 Carrera is no longer the bargain it once was, many of the examples outside of the rare 20K-mileage-and-less range have yet to appreciate to quite the same degree. However, those days are surely numbered so anyone who had hopes of owning one of the last classic 911s will need to act soon.

All together this looks like a well-cared for Cabriolet with very reasonable mileage that would be right at home in any beach community. Collectors will want to have the original radio, but otherwise everything here looks in order. This car is on auction with no reserve, which is always nice, but the opening bid is very much on the high end of where we’d expect one these cars to sell. Of the 3.2 Carrera models the ’89 Cabriolet tends to show the highest value, all else being equal, so there is a chance someone snaps this one up, but I think realistically the seller has set the opening bid a few grand too high and we may see this auction end without a bid.

    Nice color combo! But, I can’t get on board with these prices! Glad I got to own one (coupe) before they got above mid 20’s.

    Maybe it’s my monitor, but something about this car doesn’t look right to me. The front end appears to be too low and the tires look huge. The rest of it also appears to be “off'” but I can’t figure out exactly why…

    It’s nice that it’s a no reserve auction, but the starting bid is significantly higher than where I would want the final price.

    Good catch KevinR. I don’t know if it is lowered or too big a tire. I had 225 50R 16’s on mine.
