The first Porsche 911 was introduced in 1963 as the replacement for the much-loved Porsche 356. It has a distinctive design; rear-engined and with independent rear suspension, an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. The engine was also air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998. Since its introduction in 1963, it has undergone continual development, although the basic concept has remained little changed. In 1973, the Carrera name was re-introduced from the 356 Carrera which had itself been named after Porsche's class victories in the Carrera Panamericana races in Mexico in the 1950’s. The most notable advances in 1984 were the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine. Although it remained an air-cooled 'flat-six', the '3.2' was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system that at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. 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, the bald statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph.

This example was registered in the UK in 1987 although it was manufactured in 1984 as confirmed by the Certificate of Authenticity. A full body restoration has been carried out, with photographic evidence. We are advised this 911 drives well with no known faults, the 3.2 litre engine is reported to be running well and the five-speed gearbox operates as it should. The blue coachwork is in good order with some minor age-related marks. Supplied with a history folder and V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 17th April 2025. Air-cooled 911’s continue to be increasingly popular.
