There are cars that are at the right time to collect; there are
ones you'll love to drive; and this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 2
Cabriolet is both. After all, 1987 is the 25th anniversary of the
911 model, and the final run for the now-legendary 3.2 Carrera. Add
to those milestones and example that has been under the care of the
same family nearly all its life, and you've got the perfect recipe
for a classic that others will desire, too.
A red 911 is a bold statement, so you better make sure you have one
that has the kind of luster this one does. A professional repaint
means the light rolls off this car's iconic lines with confidence.
Everything you love about the 3.2-liter Carrera is in place: the
factory chin spoiler, body-colored bumpers, and large Euro-style H5
headlights. And of course, no air-cooled 911 would be complete
without Fuchs wheels. In this case, painted black to match so well
with the trim and folding roof. The reason why you can have a car
that looks this good over three decades later is that this has been
under the same family's care since the early 1990s. It was first
owned by the father, and then the daughter. And we have the
maintenance records to prove that it was properly cared for like a
This is the exact right car to have a black interior. After all,
the red on black combination looks awesome on the best sports cars.
And when you open it up to the world, the deep color coordinates
with all the black accents on the body. Stepping inside you sit in
the comfortable and supportive leather bucket seat. Then you grab
the revised factory sports steering wheel that's designed for a
clear view at the gauges. Porsche's race-ready sensibilities means
the tachometer is directly in front of the driver. The rest of the
instruments surround this in their own clearly marked pods to give
you a comprehensive view of what's going on with the engine. While
this 911 is obviously a driver's car, it also doesn't skip on
comfortable features. This includes power windows, power top, power
steering, power locks, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. There's
even factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow
ideally cold again.)
Lift the rear hatch, and see the best part of any 911. This is the
correct 3.2-liter flat-six motor. It has an outstanding reputation,
especially during final production years. In fact, Porsche fans
know this is from the few years of the 3.2 with the G50 five-speed
transmission. This was a more robust gearbox base on which Porsche
utilized to drive its sports car reputation right up until modern
times. From a driver's standpoint it gives you the confidence to
take this drop-top out on the open road anytime the moment strikes
you. This stick shift lets you get the most out of the motor as you
pilot the lightweight Porsche on your favorite desolate highway.
Combine that with Porsche's legendary steering feedback, four-wheel
power disc brakes, and grippy Yokohama Avid Envigor tires, and this
classic 911 will teach you why it's an icon with every mile.
This is the classic that proves you'll love driving your
collectables. And at this attractive price, why wouldn't you???
