About the Carrera:
The replacement for the SC series came in 1984 as the 911 3.2
Carrera, reviving the Carrera name for the first time since 1977.
This was the last iteration in the original 911 series, with all
subsequent models featuring new body styling and new brake,
electronic, and suspension technologies.
A new higher-displacement engine, a 3.2-litre horizontally opposed
flat 6-cylinder unit, was utilized. At the time Porsche claimed it
was 80% new. The new swept volume of 3,164 cc was achieved using
the 3.7" bore (from the previous SC model) combined with the 1978
Turbo 3.3 crankshaft's 2.9" stroke. In addition, higher domed
pistons increased the compression ratio from 9.8 to 10.3:1 New
inlet manifold and exhaust systems were fitted. The 915
transmission was carried over from the SC series for the first
three model years. In 1987, the Carrera got a new five-speed
gearbox sourced from Getrag, model number G50 with proven
BorgWarner synchronizers. This slightly heavier version also
featured a hydraulically operated clutch.
With the new engine, power was increased to 207 hp at 5,900 rpm for
North American-delivered cars and to 234 hp for most other markets.
This version of the 911 accelerated 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds and had
a top speed of 150 mph as measured by Autocar. Factory figures were
more modest: 0-60 mph time of 6.3 seconds for the US version and
6.1 seconds for cars outside the American market.
The brake discs were increased in size to aid in more effective
heat dissipation and improved oil-fed chain tensioners were fitted
to the engine. To improve oil cooling, a finned cooler replaced the
serpentine lines in the front passenger fender well. This was
further improved in 1987, with the addition of a thermostatically
Driving refinement and motor reliability were improved with an
upgrade of the fuel and ignition control components to an
L-Jetronic with Bosch Motronics 2 DME (Digital Motor Electronics
system). An improvement in fuel efficiency was due to the DME
providing a petrol cut-off on the overrun. Changes in the fuel map
and chip programming from October 1986 further improved the power
to 217 hp at 5,900 rpm for North American delivered cars as well as
for other markets mandating low emissions, like Germany.
Three basic models were available - coupe, targa and cabriolet. The
Carrera is almost indistinguishable from the SC with the external
clue being the front fog lights that were integrated into the front
valance. Only cosmetic changes were made during the production of
the Carrera, with a redesigned dashboard featuring larger air
conditioning vents appearing in 1986.
