The 911 was already 21 years old in 1984 and believed by many to be out of date and old fashioned. The factory effort was focused on developing the 924, 944 and 928 but thanks to an army of devoted 911 customers, a vociferous dealer network and new board member Helmuth Bott, the legendary 911 model was saved from the scrapheap and the 3. 2 Carrera was born.

“Driving in its purest form” is how the sales brochure describes the 3. 2 Carrera. With a 3, 164cc flat 6 engine, producing 231 bhp and 284 nm of torque without ABS, power steering or any of the electronic driver aids, we kind of think the brochure was right. The unforgettable sound of the air-cooled flat 6 mixed with a 152 MPH top speed and a 0-60 time of 6. 1 seconds is addictive. The 3. 2 Carrera also has its place in the record books as the last Porsche to carry the legendary 911 factory designation.

This particular car was ordered through the Porsche Exclusive program and also features M491 Turbo look, more commonly known as Super Sport. The Super Sport featured the normally aspirated 3. 2 engine but mated to the Turbo suspension, Turbo brakes, Turbo bodywork, Turbo spoilers and larger width Turbo Fuchs alloys. This Super Sport in convertible variant and this colour combination was a true slice of the exuberant 80s.

This car was given brand new to the current owner in 1988 at the age of just 22 years old. Now, most of us would have assumed that would have been a disaster. My Dad thought I would have been lucky to last 24 hours driving a 911 at the age of 22. However, the opposite happened. This 22 year old, living in the centre of London, actually felt very self-conscious, if not a little embarrassed driving such an ostentatious car around. As a result of this, the car has spent its entire life in storage and, mixed with the owner’s self-confessed OCD, now must represent the best example available in right hand drive.
