1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

We all have our personal favorites and this car is just about as close as it gets for me. A triple black 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe with whale tail. Whether this actually is my personal favorite probably depends on what day of the week it is since I’ll almost always tell you that I prefer black and tan over triple black. Then I come across a car like this one and my mind changes. The rest, however, is just how I’d want it: black exterior, black Fuchs, whale tail, and the last year of the 3.2 Carrera. The things that dreams are made of. When I think of the 911 this is the car that comes to my mind first; it relates most closely to my own first experience of the 911 in the flesh and was the dominant example during my youth when such images were permanently seared into my brain. Add to that the low mileage and the excellent condition of the interior and exterior and we have a sure winner.

This is a beautiful example of the last year of the “911” production designation and the last iteration of this iconic body style. Finished in black over black leather, this 911 is well-optioned with its original sports seats and interior, sunroof, cruise control, front and rear spoilers, and 16” Fuch wheels. The steering wheel, camber bar and premium Nakamichi stereo are aftermarket add-ons. This Porsche came from an East Coast collection and has had two long terms owners and one more recent short term owner here in Canada. The mileage is believed to be original. It has the original air pump, tool kit and spare tire. No accidents! Clean CarFax: Click HERE to view it.

The 1989 Porsche 911 had the most desirable G50 5-speed transmission. It is also the very last year of the 911 model designation. In late 1989 the model designation went to “964” with the Carrera 4 Coupe, then other models followed. In 1995 Porsche designed a new body style and called that series of 911 the “993”, which is the last of the air-cooled Porsche. If you want to own a piece of 911 history, the last year of that model is probably the one to invest in. It wouldn’t take much to have this car looking completely stock, radios and steering wheels are often available on eBay and through parts retailers.

There is definitely some good photography at work here as the seller has provided a nice backdrop and focus to help highlight the appearance of this car. The asking price is quite high and I’ll be interested to see whether the auction can reach it, because while it is true that this is the last year of 3.2 Carrera production, these models, unlike with the 930, do not significantly differ from the ’87 and ’88 model years to elicit much of a premium. There is also the matter of lacking a couple of the original interior pieces, which at this price need to be present. Still, this is a fantastic example of the Carrera Coupe and even if it doesn’t hit what is being asked for here it should still see a pretty high price. Whether it’s perfect or not, I don’t care, I love it.

  1. Totally worth the money!
    No new Porsche has the passion and soul of a triple black air-cooled 911 with a factory whale tail and Fuchs wheels.
    Although I would put back the OEM steering wheel and also like OEM stereos, I would keep the 1980’s Nakamichi it has. That was the B&O of the 80″s.

  2. Preach on, Preacher!

  3. Need to take a break…. and look at the twin in the garage…

  4. The rear seat area side panels for the big speakers are interesting. I never saw those before. I wonder if they are custom built when the aftermarket sound system was added.

    At $38k and 2 days to go it will be interesting to see how close it gets to the buy it now number.

  5. @m491 Those are not a factory option on this car but look nicely done.

  6. Nice looking Carrera. About 6 weeks ago I was in my neighborhood on a beautiful Sunday morning. The main road is Rt 23. It twists and turns through the woods and rises and falls. I had just turned onto 23 about 100 to 200 yards up the road. A woman trying to make a left from a side street on my right rolled right out in front of me and totaled my Guards Red 87 Targa. I got a good settlement from her insurance company and I replaced the 87 with a 88 Cassis Red Targa, 65k miles. The car is in impeccable condition with all records, COA and extras. I got my set of 17 Inch Lindsey Fuchs back from my old car too. I paid a LOT less than the Black Coupe pictured. The black coupe looks like a nice car but at $57k you can do better price wise with a little hunting and some patience. I don’t see prices falling anytime soon but I still think 57 is above the market. I have owned a couple dozen air cooled 911’s over the past 20 years including all the odd ball models.

    The photos on eBay have clearly been photoshopped. It would be interesting to see some high res un touched photos and see how good it really is.

  7. @ Howard S
    Sorry to hear about your 911.
    For everyone out there: Have ‘Agreed Value Insurance’ on your classics, and have them appraised every year or two (about $150 per car).
    That will guarantee your equity and it might even beat the return of an Index Fund.
