The replacement for the SC series came in 1984 named 911 3.2 Carrera, reviving the Carrera name for the first time since 1977. This was the last iteration in the original 911 series, with all subsequent models featuring new body styling with new brake, electronic and suspension technologies.
A new higher-displacement motor, a 3.2-litre horizontally opposed flat 6-cylinder, was utilized. New inlet manifold and exhaust systems were fitted. The 915 transmission was carried over from the SC series for the first three model years. In 1987, the Carrera got a new five-speed gearbox sourced from Getrag, model number G50 with proven BorgWarner synchronizers. This slightly heavier version also featured a hydraulically operated clutch.
Three basic models were available – coupé, targa and cabriolet. The Carrera is almost indistinguishable from the SC with the external clue being the front fog lights that were integrated into the front valance. Only cosmetic changes were made during the production of the Carrera, with a redesigned dash featuring larger air conditioning vents appearing in 1986.
We’re proud to offer this lovely example in Grand Prix White with Metropole Blue leather, a wonderful original car with a comprehensive service history and with a recent 1st place concours certificate and trophies. The car comes with previous MOTs, owner’s handbooks, tax discs and Smart Track tracking device. These are fast appreciating in value and harks back to those iconic “ yuppie” days of the affluent in the 1980s. Still stunning today as it was then, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
