Porsche revived the Carrera name – previously used for the competition orientated versions of the preceding 356 model – for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973, applying the evocative title to all 911 variants, coinciding with the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine, from the start of the 1984 model year.
This stunning later example, fitted with the more desirable G50 gearbox, has been subject to an extensive program of refurbishment. The engine has been fully rebuilt, also the transmission, which was reinstalled with a new clutch. A new exhaust has been fitted, as have new brake discs and pads, the brake calipers have also been rebuilt, and the classic Fuchs alloy wheels have been refinished.
Repainted in Grand Prix white and fitted with deeper black leather sports seats inside, this stunning Porsche is in truly excellent condition in all respects.
