Many a car enthusiast, at one time or another, has dreamt of owning a Porsche 911 and few have set the pulses racing like the poster car for the 80's generation than the 930 with its iconic whale tail accompanied by fabulous performance. Launched in 1984 and reviving the ‘Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, the most notable advance on the 80's Carrera was the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine; although it remained an air-cooled 'flat-six', the 3.2 was 80% new. With 231bhp on tap, the new 'boxer' motor endowed the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974, a torque-rich 231bhp, enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150mph with 0-60mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. All 3.2 Carrera’s feature galvanised bodies which, together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long lasting.
This example is presented in the iconic Guards Red with a black interior. Prior to our vendor purchasing the car, it had been owned by a charity who were very kindly gifted the car. It spent a long period of time in storage before being sold, so has recently been through a recommissioning process focussing on ensuring the car drives exactly as it should, the brakes had some attention due to the lack of use and the car was fully serviced. The car will be driven from Exeter to the sale. The car has a huge history file containing various invoices over the years for servicing and other works. An air-cooled 911 is always going to be something truly special, even more so in 2023 as Porsche celebrates its 75th anniversary, so why not join in the fun?
