Introduced for the 1973 model year, the G series was Porsche’s second generation of the 911 and remains its longest-running to date. Despite the famous “impact bumpers” that were fitted to conform with low-speed crash regulations, the G series was a hit with enthusiasts. Various improvements were made over the years, such as a larger 3,164 cc flat-six engine, larger disc brakes, and a new Bosch Motronic fuel-injection system.

As a 1988 model, this 911 Cabriolet benefits from the many improvements made to the G series throughout its production run. With 214 bhp, a five-speed G-50 transaxle, and stiffened anti-roll bars, the 1988 model year offered the most refined driving experience yet. Finished in paint-to-sample Almond Beige Metallic, with complementing linen and brown top and interior, this 911 Cabriolet is truly unique. This example was lovingly cared for and preserved by the same family until 2016, accumulating less than 39,000 miles under their ownership.

Since then, the car has gone through a mechanical and cosmetic refresh, including new top and door seals, and a new OEM top cover. In addition, an oil service was completed, a leak-down test was performed with all cylinders showing under 3%.

Overall, this Cabriolet offers the opportunity to enjoy a very original and low-mileage Carrera 3.2 in an exceptional specification.
