Description

Low mileage, 3.2 Carrera in Guards Red with the 'extended' cream leather optionAcquired in 1999, and patently cherished ever since this is a lovely exampleOver 25 MOTCertificates support theremarkably low indicated mileage of43,900Less than 500 miles within the last seven years, not being used in the rainNow offered by the owners family as the car has not been used for 12 monthsMOT valid until March 2021. Sensibly guided for such a lovely original carThe 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. Launched in 1984, and reviving the Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, these were the ultimate 1980s sports cars.The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164cc, producing a torque-rich 231 bhp - enough to propel the lithe and slippery coup to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. Cars built from September 1986 onwards were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanizedbodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long-lasting.This lovely, right-hand drive, 1988 Carrera is finished in theclassiccolour combination of Guards Red with a cream leather interior, however, somewhat unusually the cream leather has been extended to the dashboard which was not a common option. It's a factory 'Sport' model with Fuchs alloy wheels, sport seats, rear seat belts, rear wiper, spoilers, Bilstein sports shock-absorbers, sunroof, and a carpeted luggage compartment.Our vendors father acquired his dream car back in 1999 and kept it ever since as a cherished part of the family. It has been laid up since last year upon his passing but went straight through its MOTat the first time of asking this Spring. It was his pride and joy,so much so, that he wouldn't use it if there was any chance of rain which, as this is England, might explain why it has covered less than 500 miles in the last seven years.Classic 911styling, a howling flat-sixpushing out 230 bhp, all the sport options and low mileage.For those of us growing up in the era, this was the car on our walls, a Red 911, and as a non-turbo, its within financial reach for most. With values of the pre-964 cars continuing to firm, this doesn't seem like a hard decision.You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16thand 30thJuly.
