The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963, before being replaced by the 964 series in 1990. These final cars were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971 received a final stretch to 3,164 cc, giving a torquey 231hp, enough to propel the lithe and slippery icon to over 150mph, with 0-60mph coming up in 5.6 seconds.

As documented in the extensive history file, this 3.2 Carrera Coupé was first delivered on 9th November 1984 to its first owner, a Mr. Nelson of the Rolex Watch Company by AFN Porsche Centre of Chiswick. The paint code L999 is commonly known as a special-order paint code, however, basically it's just a different shade of Silver with a contrasting navy blue pin-striped interior. The Carrera was subsequently bought by its long-term owner, our vendor, on 23rd August 2002 from Hendon Way Motors.

Our vendor has clearly cossetted this car during his fifteen-year tenure and it's only offered to auction due to the imminent arrival of a 1968 Corvette without enough space to store them both.

The history file shows bills for many thousands spent in maintenance and the service records show services and attention at the following intervals:
