Vehicle Description

For those who don't spend every moment researching Porsches, this 1987 911 Carrera just looks like a beautiful example of the archetype pure sports car. But the die-hard Porsche people out there know how special it is to get an original 3.2 with G50 five-speed and Carmine Red. But regardless of your level of enthusiast, you can recognize a great buy on a beautiful classic.


Carmine Red is truly a special color. You can either get it on a 911 built in 1987 or 2016...that's it. This deeper shade of crimson looks so fantastic that you'll instantly draw attention at car shows, even when you park next to other Stuttgart legends. And if it's a Porsche show, get ready for some awards! Everything you love about the 3.2-liter Carrera is in place – the factory chin spoiler, body-colored bumpers, and large Euro-style headlights. This one also has the Carrera flares with wider wheel arches and the iconic "whale tail" rear spoiler. And of course, no air-cooled 911 would be complete without Fuchs wheels. In this case, painted black to match so well with this car's aggressively understated trim.


The bright linen colored interior looks original, and its well-preserved nearly white color tells you just how cared for the car has been over the decades. You sit down in the German engineered bucket seat, and grab the 911's classic three-spoke steering wheel. 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 doesn't skip on comfortable features. This includes power window, upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, sunroof, and provisions for air conditioning.


Lift the rear hatch, and see the best part of any 911. This is the original flat-six motor, and experts agree that you won't find a more reliable high-performance powerplant than the fuel-injected 3.2-liter Carrera engine. This one has the extra appeal performance note of an upgraded exhaust (the factory one is also available for the purists.) 1987 is a pivotal year for 911 fans, because it was the introduction of 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 coupe out on the open road anytime the moment strikes you. This manual transmission allows you to get the most out of the motor as you pilot the lightweight Porsche on your favorite desolate highway. Combine this with Porsche's legendary steering feedback, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Michelin Pilot tires, and this classic 911 will teach you why it's an icon with every mile.


Porsche rarity is all about the details, and this hot little red machine has it in spades. You even get the original warranty card, maintenance records, and restoration receipts to back it all up. The secret is out on how special this coupe is. Call now!
