1986 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera, Guards Red with only 62,000 Miles For Sale

The 911 was already 21 years old in 1984 and believed by many to be out of date and old fashioned.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.

For us Guards red with black leather has to be the ultimate colour combination for the Carrera and an example in this condition can’t help but stir the emotions.

For the first four years of this cars’ life it was in the hands of two owners who covered 30,000 miles. In August 1990 the car passed to the third owner, a serious car collector, where it took pride of place in his collection alongside other such icons as a genuine Lancia Stratos. During this period, some of the maintenance of this car was carried out by the owner.

The third owner died and in 2007 and with only 42,000 miles on the clock the car passed to it’s truly enthusiastic fourth owner, a highly qualified ex-Prodrive mechanic who cut his teeth with Prodrive on the E30 M3 and the first Subaru Legacy rally cars .

Throughout his ownership, his exceptionally fastidious standards have led to the car being completely resprayed to an exceptionally high standard and re-assembled with new trims, bumper pads, bumper bellows, seals, rubbers, number plate lights, rear lights, etc to give the car an as new and very stunning appearance. It has also recently benefitted from new bonnet gas struts, rebuilt brake calipers, brake pipes and brake pads with new sensors. Since 1990 the car has lived inside at all times and has led a very pampered life.

In 2013 the 4th Owner asked us to find a new home for his pride and joy to fund a round world motorcycle ride and the car was bought to Classic Heroes. A very good customer of ours with a stunning collection saw the car and bought it from us and the following work was carried out to prepare the car to our usual Classic Heroes standard.

Carry out major service including valve clearances. Rebuild rear brake calipers. Replace front brake hoses. New rear brake pads and sensor. New front brake disc back plates. New front brake pad sensors (front calipers are already new as are the brake discs all round). Change brake fluid. Replace both front wheel bearings. Replace front and rear wiper blades. Remove complete exhaust system. Inspect heat exchangers and replace exhaust with new gaskets, new gear lever bushes, nuts, studs, new intermediate silencer and new rear exhaust silencer. Fit new sun-roof seals. Replace fan belt. Tighten glove box catch. Replace engine cover seal, Replace both high and low tone horns. Replace Rear torsion bar inner and outer bushes with new covers. Replace rear roll bar drop links. Remove old, dated alarm system. Carry out wheel refurbish (correctly anodised), Carry out four wheel geometry checks and alignment, Replace oil cooler bolt, Clean and rust treat rear oil cooler pipe, Fit new over mats. Check operation of all electrics and rectify faulty n/s seat switch, n/s seat heating, faulty oil level sender wiring, faulty n/s electric mirror operation, faulty bonnet and boot lights, faulty n/s door mirror, adjust cigar lighter and faulty demist switch illumination. Thoroughly clean underside of car for inspection. Carry out rust proofing and Waxoyl programme.

The underside of this Carrera is amazing and still in its correct factory stone chip and Guards red.

In 2015 our customer fell in love with a 930 Turbo and could not keep both cars so now with 56,000 miles we found the lucky next owner who wanted the car for driving to his historic motor races. The car was added to his collection of historic race cars. He has enjoyed 3 years with the car and 5000 memorable miles driving to historic race meets in Europe. During his ownership the car has had a major service with Export 56, had four new Bilstein shock absorbers, new distributor cap and rotor arm and installation of the Porsche Classic Navigation System Radio giving hands-free phone use, navigation and full media connectivity.
