The Porsche 911 was introduced in its first form in 1964 and was for a long time the face of Porsche. The replacement for the SC series came in 1984 as the 911 3.2 Carrera, reviving the Carrera name for the first time since 1977. This was the last iteration in the original 911 series, with all subsequent models featuring new body styling and new brake, electronic, and suspension technologies. A new higher-displacement engine, a 3.2-litre horizontally opposed flat 6-cylinder unit, was utilized. At the time Porsche claimed it was 80% new. Three basic models were available – coupé, targa and cabriolet. The Carrera is almost indistinguishable from the SC with the external clue being the front fog lights that were integrated into the front valance. Total production of the 911 3.2 Carrera series was 76,473 cars of which just under 20,000 were cabriolets.
70 WKN was originally sold new in Cornwall. There is a letter on file from a previous owner stating that the car did have a full-service history but that had unfortunately been lost. Acquired by the vendor in 2004, this Carrera has been used sparingly since and is offered in its eye-catching yellow livery with blue leather interior and black hood. When inspected the car fired up immediately; the 3.2l flat six engine has a throaty note, with rapid acceleration; drive is by a 5-speed manual gearbox. All gears engaged as they should. It should be noted that some minor bodywork issues exist which a new owner might want to address. The rear nearside wing has a paint crack and there is some minor bubbling on the front nearside wing; the hood is in good condition. At some point in the past the car seems to have been involved in an accident and was classed as a Category C insurance claim (Cat. C being uneconomic to repair at that time due to the cars value). The vendor had the car checked over and there was no apparent structural damage hidden after repair.
The car is fitted with a Toad alarm and there are several old MOT certificates in the file. Also included is some service history, old tax discs and an original driver’s manual. This is a car that is ready to enjoy this summer and would benefit from some improvements next winter.
This car now has a brand new MOT, issued on the 13th May,
