1984 Porsche 911 Carrera
Air Cooled 3.2 L 207 HP Bosch Motronic Flat 6
Porsche 915 Five-Speed Manual Transmission
The 3.2-liter 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera debuted hot on the heels of a very successful run of 911SC models. The new Carrera shared most of its visual cues with its predecessor, but benefitted from added power, performance, and evolutionary updates. The chief upgrade in the Carrera was the larger 3.2-liter flat six engine, which looked like the 3.0 it replaced, but was 80% new. One crucial change was an improved timing chain tensioner, which had been an issue on previous models. Also new was Bosch Motronic fuel injection. The 200 HP engine mated to a Getrag five-speed manual transmission was enough to propel the Carrera from 0 - 60 mph in about 5.3 seconds – still quick by today’s standards.
From the February 1984 issue of Car and Driver magazine:
“It is the evil weevil, the rock-solid, steely-eyed grim reaper of sporting cars, the paragon of knife-edged incisiveness and buttoned-down insanity. More than any other factory-fresh passenger car available here today, the Porsche 911 Carrera is the absolute embodiment of clench-jawed, tightfisted, slit-eyed enthusiasm run amok, a car for making the landscape pass with explosive fluidity. Strange that a car so serious can bring such unadulterated joy, but there you are, sporting an enormous, cheek-splitting leer when you unstrap and step out. You devil, you.”
This Carrera was originally ordered in a metallic paint-to-sample blue color, with a Champagne full leather interior. Standard features included leather upholstery, air conditioning, power windows, a sunroof, and 15-inch alloys, while cruise control, 16 inch wheels, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo were popular options. This 911 (one of 6,532 made) has those options, plus the Sports Steering Wheel, Leather Sports Seats, Sports Shock Absorbers, front & rear spoilers and Sunroof. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity is included in the photo gallery.
Driven regularly since 2004 by the current owner, it had a recent oil & filter change, brake fluid flush, new front brake calipers & pads and new tires (Continental Extreme Contact Sport) , all in June, 2020 (and not many miles ago). It also has a new battery (12/20). The original Blaupunkt AM/FM radio works fine, but its cassette player has given up. The car has a clean Carfax report with no accidents or damage reported. Service records since 2004 and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity are included.
