This red Porsche 911 Carrera 2 convertible is a 1986 model which was originally delivered to the US and imported to Germany in 2015. It has the 3.2 litre 6-cylinder boxer engine installed which had been introduced two years previously – a veritable power pack with its performance of 152 kW (207 hp), sufficient for a top speed of 245 km/h. Owing to the hydraulic chain tensioners, this engine finally overcame a typical 911 ailment.
The paintwork is good, minor stone chip damage and small scratches are visible. The engine compartment looks clean and dry. The odometer shows an unwarranted mileage of 130,000 km. The gearbox has been replaced in the past.
On the inside, the black leather seats look slightly faded, but not brittle. The dashboard is devoid of visible cracks. Cubby holes and door linings show the typical traces of use. The convertible top looks well-preserved. The 911 runs on Fuchs wheels in good condition.
Power windows, electrically adjustable seats and rear-view mirrors as well as a Pioneer radio are installed. The car got the European version of the bumpers front and rear as well as a odometer showing kilometers. The vehicle, recently estimated by Classic Data at € 62,000 in condition 2, has valid technical approval until 02/2018 and can soon obtain historic plates.
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 production line in 1989.
For the 1986 model year, Porsche had extended the warranty against rust from 7 to 10 years. These 911 models benefit from the improved corrosion protection until today. Another 1986 upgrade are the reinforced stabilizers.
This car is almost a must in any good garage!
