WP0AB0912FS121779: Displaying just 22,850 documented miles to date, this particular 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera is quite possibly one of the finest original G-body Carreras we have ever come across. Thanks to thoughtful stewardship and limited use, the immaculate level of correctness and preservation extends to nearly every component of this Porsche.

Paint Meter Readings are consistent throughout (see chart & photos). All gaps are laser straight with a spectacular glossy finish. In addition, the exterior retains all matching etched glass, supple original rubbers, lenses, emblems, seals, and anodized window trim. Inside the jambs are the original affixed identification and information decals (doors, underhood and rear), along with factory paint pen markings and zinc coatings - which coincides with similar markings and finishes visible throughout the front luggage compartment, engine bay and undercarriage. The undercarriage is as you might expect from an original and unmodified car. The finishes and coatings continue down the powertrain, suspension, and brakes.

The highly optioned cabin features All original upholstery, exceptionally preserved leather upholstery, carpeting, dashboard plastic adornments and speaker grills, instruments, knobs, vents and switches. The cold air-conditioning, power windows, mirrors, sunroof, and impossibly rare Blaupunkt Monterey SQR23 radio are all in working order. The radio is accompanied by original manuals and an SQR23 Acoustic Instructional cassette - a first for us.

Completing all-black accents (including the headliner) and perfectly plush pile carpeting complete the handsomely kempt interior. The front storage compartment shows further evidence of untouched originality with smears of black enamel and glue with important factory items in place, including correct spot-welds, markings, and paper tags on the wiring harness - as well as the original jack and 14/85 date-stamped space saver wheel. Additional vintage OEM Porsche belts and tool kit in Porsche plastic sleeve complement.

Under the rear deck, the matching engine and compartment are in excellent order, benefiting from a recent extensive steam clean and detail. The engine bay remains remarkably original and completely stock, retaining original emissions equipment and air-conditioning components properly in place. The engine finishes are preserved, with correct clamps, hoses, and hardware - including surrounding decals.

The Carrera benefits from a Summer 2020 inspection. This was followed by a Porsche Classic Technical Inspection and Certificate performed by Texas' only Porsche Classic Partner. Recent service and parts invoices are compiled in a binder. It should be noted the car was photographed on its factory original Goodyear tires! A newer set of staggered tires (dated 2015) are included with the sale.

Early 911s are delightful to drive, but an example of such originality truly commands the respect of even modestly capable drivers who quickly realize the performance once behind the wheel. The gearbox is smooth and effortless, with excellent throttle response, tight and responsive steering.

Importantly, in additional to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and Porsche Classic Technical Certificate, this Carrera Coupe is supported by its Original Window Sticker, ALL Original Purchase Paperwork, Original VIN-Matched Manuals in vinyl folio, and Key Sets. Truly a time-warp, impeccably preserved, low mileage and complete example for the most discerning Porsche collector and enthusiast alike.
