Nineteen eighty-nine would be a significant year for Porsche’s 911 as it represented the now familiar G-Series 911’s final year of production. These 1989 G-Series 911s boasted the 3.2-liter engine, which had been introduced in 1984. Power was quoted at 207 bhp and was managed through the G50 five-speed transmission, which itself was introduced in 1987. The excellent combination of this engine and gearbox made these 911s extremely reliable and these cars quickly became enthusiast favorites.

Finished in attractive white over a blue leather interior, this 911 Carrera coupe is offered today from single private ownership from new. Having remained in California for its entire life, this 911 has been carefully maintained, preserved, and enjoyed. Today it has travelled less than 47,000 miles from new. Importantly, the 911 has never been restored and retains its original paintwork and interior. Following a recent service, which included an oil change, this attractive Porsche is reported to be ready to enjoy.

Benefitting from over 30 years in the care of its first and only owner, this 911 also boasts a very desirable color combination and careful preservation, maintenance, and enjoyment throughout its life. Excellent cars to drive and enjoy, this ’89 911 checks all the right boxes and would be perhaps the perfect first for a budding Porsche enthusiast or a welcome addition to any collector’s garage.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0120.
