To me, there are few things in this world as pleasing to the eye as a ’85-’89 Porsche Carrera. I am not alone, these cars sold quite well considering the economics at the time and driven, driven, and driven some more. Super low mile examples such as this are very hard to find.
From the seller –
“1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe, Guards Red/Black, 19k miles, 5 speed manual. Outstanding – always garaged, original paint in as new condition – no accidents. This is an opportunity to get close to a new 3.2 coupe in 2012 – perfect interior, all trim, gaskets, moldings. Factory options – sport seats, front and rear spoilers, cruise control, rear wiper, central locking sysytem, intensive washer system, headlight washers, blaupunkt reno 2 headunit. Added BBS 16×7 and 16×8 period correct 3 piece wheels and momo black shift knob – all else is original. Performs excellent, no leaks of any kind. Original wheels and shift knob no longer with the car, no records, compressor and tool kit.”
A couple of things give me pause, no records, compressor or tool kit. For goodness sakes, track that down! For $28k I think those looking for a car like this would want these things. Or, maybe it’s just me.
The wheels, while period correct, they were ugly in the 80’s. Now they are just awful. 1986 is also a tweener year for these cars. You don’t get the G50 transmission but this does not bother me as much as it may trouble others.
On the other hand, this Carrera is pristine. The interior looks new, the underside is clean, the block is dry. The price of $28.5k does not seem all that prohibitive. I have seen low mileage examples such as this being held for a king’s ransom so it is refreshing that the seller has his/her expectations based in reality.
