The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963, before being replaced by the more complicated 964.These final cars were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164 cc, giving a torquey 231 hp ~ enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupe to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds.Cars built from September 1986 onward received the more user-friendly G50 gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanized bodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long-lasting. Ordered via Paul Greier Porsche in Germany on 15.03.84, this one owner Porsche Carrera was highly optioned from new. The car was ordered in Grand Prix White with Can-Can Red leather sports seats, however the car was actually delivered with a driver's comfort seat and passenger sports seat as requested by the owner. The car was also specified with the desirable and costly Turbo Look, Supersport option code (M491) at an additional cost of 27,950 DM. This option code included the wide body styling of the 930 Turbo, and the stiffer suspension along with larger 917-derived brakes from the Turbo model. In all the total bill of sale for the car was 113,536 DM on the 22.04.86. However what's more impressive than the specification of the Carrera, is this car's incredible low mileage of just 743kms (461mls). As can be seen in the history file it was serviced by Paul Greier Porsche on the 15.07.1987 at 382kms. The car was taken back to Paul Grier Porsche for minor maintenance work on the exhaust on the 10/08/1988 with the mileage of the car now showing just 400kms and was once again presented for service with Paul Greier on the 19/07/1990 showing just 422kms. The car continued to be lightly used, as is evidenced by an engine bay service tag signed by K.Bracker showing a recorded mileage of 582kms on 24/9/1992. Over the coming years the car seldom saw the light of day and spent its life at rest until being woken once again to be offered for sale. Recently the car has befitted from a full detailed inspection, service and recommission by well known UK marque specialists Autofarm at a cost of £4,120, ensuring the car is in fine fettle and as close as its possible to be, to its condition when it left the factory back in 1986. A true time warp car presented with a good history file depicting early service records, the original Porsche book pack, its service book (not stamped but correctly completed), along with tools and other paraphernalia relating to the vehicle. Rarely are cars of this exceptional low mileage and condition seen, let alone become available on the open market. Offered without reserve this car is true collectors item not to be missed.
