After a seven-year hiatus, Porsche revived the famous Carrera nameplate in 1984 with the 911 Carrera 3.2. Produced until 1989, the Carrera 3.2 was an evolution of its predecessor, the SC, and marked the final development of the classic 911 originating in 1963.

While similar in appearance to the outgoing SC, the Carrera featured a 3.2-liter flat-six that included electronic fuel injection, more reliable oil-pressure-fed timing chain tensioners, and, beginning with the 1987 production year, the desirable and smoother-shifting G50 transaxle. The interior was further refined with a revised ventilation system and more comfortable seats.

Completed on November 16, 1987, this Carrera Cabriolet still wears its striking original black paint with a black canvas folding power top and boot over a special Lipstick Red leather interior. According to its accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, among the many factory options selected for this car are a limited-slip differential, steering wheel with raised hub, forged alloy wheels, front and rear spoilers, cruise control, and Blaupunkt radio, all of which are still accounted for today, as are its original manuals, tool kit, spare tire, and jack.

Showing less than 19,500 miles on the odometer, and stated to have been regularly maintained, this ideally specified, time capsule Carrera Cabriolet is so well kept that it is an opportunity not to be missed.
