History
The 3.2-liter 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera debuted hot on the heels of a very successful run of 911SC models, built from 1978 to 1983. The Carrera was priced at $32,000 and shared most of its visual cues with its immediate predecessor, but benefitted from added power and performance, as well as other evolutionary updates. The cars came as they had when the SC bowed out, in a Coupe, Cabriolet, and the Targa body styles. The chief upgrade in the Carrera was the larger 3.2-liter flat-six engine, which looked much like that of the 3.0 it replaced but was built chiefly of all-new parts. One crucial change was an improved hydraulic timing chain tensioner, which had been an issue on previous models. Also new was Bosch Motronic fuel injection, which replaced the K-Jetronic system. From 1984 to 1986 the engine produced 207 horsepower with a five-speed manual 915 transmission. This was enough to propel the Carrera from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds. Changes in the fuel map and chip programming from October 1986 (for the 1987 year-model) further improved the power to 217 hp at 5,900 rpm for North American delivered cars.
