911 Carrera 3.2 1987 Dark Blue (Dunkel Blau) 231 HP
We have rarely seen a 3.2 Carrera in such splendid technical condition. For those who know, it will not be a surprise when told this car has been in the hands of mr. early 911 himself, Manfred Hering (www.early911s.de).
Mr. Hering fitted the car with a fully overhauled suspension, gearbox, engine and many other details. The car received a fresh paintjob and last but not least, the interior with its beautiful optional sport seats, as informed by Mr.Hering, was in such good condition, it has not been touched and is thus fully original.
The color combination Dark Blue with pinstripe fabric interior, is one of the most beautiful and classic combination we can imagine.
A beautiful addition to any collection, or a fantastic daily driver.
Introduced in 1984, the Carrera 3.2 had essentially the same galvanised body as the outgoing SC, albeit with a new front spoiler with integral fog-lamps.
The engine, on the other hand, was claimed by Porsche to be 80 per cent new, although still based on the SC’s 3.0-litre unit. The Carrera’s main innovation was its Bosch Motronic 2 engine management system. This was the first production 911 to feature an ECU to control the ignition and fuel systems. In addition, the fuel injection was updated to Bosch LE-Jetronic and the induction and exhaust systems were revised.
Initially, the Carrera 3.2 was offered with the same 915 gearbox as the SC, however, in 1987 the car was treated to the new Getrag G50 gearbox which offered smoother changes and a shorter, more modern-looking, gearlever.
The Carrera 3.2 was a popular model and was phased out in 1989. Today, it’s gained a reputation for being reliable and relatively affordable to own and run.
