1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2
This 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 is a striking Australian delivered example that benefits from extensive mechanical and cosmetic refurbishments over the past decade with minimal use from its current owner. Under the rear decklid sits a naturally aspirated 3.2-litre flat-six-cylinder engine which outputs 170kW to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. The current odometer shows 288,900km.
First introduced in 1984 the Carrera 3.2 is arguably one of the most iconic 911 shapes to enthusiasts and people with minimal interest in cars. Sold up until 1989 the Carrera 3.2 was the most successful 911 ever in terms of sales when Porsche was just known as a sports car manufacturer which lends to its popularity today. Badged with the Carrera 3.2 name due to being the most powerful naturally aspirated engine fitted to a 911 at the time and from the 1987 model year introduced the iconic G50 gearbox. This led to owners of earlier examples, this one included, upgrading the current gearbox with items such as light weigh flywheels to improve the gearbox performance.
This example is finished in the quintessential Porsche hue of Guards Red with black leather interior. Fitted with 16 inch Fuchs alloy wheels that feature black centres and polished rims. The vehicle also retains an original “whale tail” and features a factory sunroof.
Delivered new through Scuderia Veloce Motors Sydney, now known as Porsche Centre Willoughby. This Carrera 3.2 has been owned by the seller since 2011 and is believed to be the 4th owner who has done a mere 3,000km in that time while still carrying out extensive mechanical and interior work. The most recent work was a comprehensive service while also attending to ignition leads, spark plugs, sway bars, axel joints, re-gas of the AC and rectifying vacuum leaks while giving the engine a tune. In 2016 the current owner carried out a complete gearbox and trans-axel refurbishment along with the fitment of a new light weight clutch. While the engine had a major overhaul in 2007 by Art of Auto Engineering in Melbourne. The seller notes that the only item still needing attention is the interior fan motor which is not working as it should.
This car’s exterior condition still presents in great order throughout. The red paintwork has been kept in good condition overall, with minimal stone chipping showing to the front and rear decklid. The fuchs wheels largely show in good order without major kerb rash (though the two rear do have some very minor marks) and the Michelin tyres retain good tread.
Inside the cabin this 911 has been kept in excellent condition as would be expected from a complete restoration carried out in 2014 that included new genuine leather seats, carpet and perforated roof lining. The iconic instrument dials also benefited from a clean during their recalibration during its current ownership.
Included in the sale are the original service books, a comprehensive history file, tool kit, Porsche compressor and original “whale tail”. The personalised plates currently fitted to the vehicle are not included in the sale.
