The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963, before being replaced by the 964 series in 1990. 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 231hp, enough to propel the lithe and slippery icon to over 150mph, with 0-60mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. As documented in the extensive history file, this 3.2 Carrera Coupé was first delivered on 9th November 1984 to its first owner, a Mr. Nelson of the Rolex Watch Company by AFN Porsche Centre of Chiswick. The paint code L999 is commonly known as a special-order paint code, however, basically it's just a different shade of Silver with a contrasting navy blue pin-striped interior. The Carrera was subsequently bought by its long-term owner, our vendor, on 23rd August 2002 from Hendon Way Motors. Our vendor has clearly cossetted this car during his fifteen-year tenure and it's only offered to auction due to the imminent arrival of a 1968 Corvette without enough space to store them both. The history file shows bills for many thousands spent in maintenance and the service records show services and attention at the following intervals: 513 miles 16/11/1984 AFN Porsche Centre 2,520 miles 22/1/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 7,216 miles 26/4/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 11,852 miles 19/11/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 22,110 miles 27/10/1986 AFN Porsche Centre 39,099 miles 03/08/1987 AFN Porsche Centre 52,781 miles 15/03/1988 AFN Porsche Centre 66,476 miles 03/10/1988 AFN Porsche Centre 82,034 miles 11/09/1991 AFN Porsche Centre 85,598 miles 10/03/1997 Willow Vale Porsche 89,406 miles 06/10/1997 Willow Vale Porsche 92,285 miles 25/03/1998 Willow Vale Porsche 94,927 miles 13/08/1999 Willow Vale Porsche 110,170 miles 31/01/2004 GT One Ltd 112,303 miles 11/06/2005 Newlands Motors 125,717 miles 30/07/2006 PARR Motorsport (Brakes & Service) 127,310 miles 21/08/2007 Newlands Motors 128,428 miles 21/11/2008 Newlands Motors 129,452 miles 24/2/2009 Newlands Motors 130,671 miles 01/02/2011 Newlands Motors 133,040 miles 08/03/2013 Newlands Motors 134,580 miles 06/08/2014 Newlands Motors 135,648 miles 16/08/2017 Nine Excellence This super 911 is accompanied by a comprehensive history file, a fitted car cover, and an MOT until June 2018.
