Hard to believe this car’s already turned 30 years of age, it certainly doesn’t look it.
This is a 1986 Porsche Carrera Turbo Look convertible, painted in meteor grey metallic with grey-green leather interior. It features the 3.2 litre engine of the 930/21 type in combination with the 915/73 transmission, a 5-speed manual. In its US version, this engine produces 160 kW (217 hp) of power. The Porsche was ordered ex-works with the M491 code, which means wide body, as well as without spoilers (470). All in all a rare combination, even more so in this largely untinkered original condition.
The dashboard is devoid of cracks, the door panels original. Likewise, the interior with its leather sport seats shows well, some traces of use on the drivers’s seat notwithstanding. The convertible top has been renewed. This 911 runs on Fuchs alloys in good condition. The engine compartment looks clean and dry. According to the odometer, the total mileage amounts to 112,000 mls.
Among the amenities, there are heated and electrically adjustable seats, power windows, air conditioning as well as cruise control. The Porsche has a clean Carfax report which states that no accident has been reported, as well as a recent Classic Data appraisal which testifies a value of € 120,000 (condition 2).
This is a nice opportunity to own a great looking and rather unique Turbo Look convertible, which has now reached the age required for registration as a historic vehicle.
A legend goes into the next generation – and loses no bit of temperament and class!
The second generation of the Porsche 911 (G model) came on the market in 1973 as a successor to the Porsche 911 (original model). It was a 2+2-seater sports car and available as coupé, convertible (as of 1983), Targa and Speedster.
The 911 was equipped with the following engines: 2.7 to 3.0 litre petrol engine (150-188 hp) and, for the Carrera version, 2.7 to 3.2 litre petrol engine (200-231 hp). The last Porsche 911 G-model rolled off the assembly line in 1989.
For the 1981 model year, Porsche had introduced a 7-year warranty against rust, they were the first manufacturer in the world to do so. The entire chassis was made of double-sided galvanized steel. From these corrosion protection measures, the Porsche 911 benefits until today. As of 1986, the warranty was extended to 10 years. Another 1986 upgrade are the reinforced stabilizers.
This car is almost a must in any good garage!
