Developed under the watchful eye of Porsche Chief Executive Peter Schutz, the 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show of September 1983. Estimated to be 80 percent new, the model's 3164cc (hence '3.2') flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to a five-speed manual transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible, making the model capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and a 153mph top speed. In order to cope with the increased performance, the brakes were enlarged and the top two gear ratios slightly raised. Among other improvements was a redesigned timing chain tensioner - the Achilles heel of the earlier engines. Early examples of the 3.2 employed the 915 type manual gearbox with reverse gear located beneath fifth, while 1987 to 1989 models had the stronger G50 unit in which reverse was located beside the fifth ratio. An optional 'Sport' pack became available during 1984, comprising a deeper front valance, 'tea tray' rear spoiler, stiffer Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with Black centres.

Here we have a wonderful example of the much sought after Porsche 911 Carrera - Targa Sport, finished in Grand Prix White with a Black Targa Top that is in great condition. The interior is impressive with its Blue leather and Red seat piping, which we are informed was an original option at the point of ordering. "G743 GJT" was first registered in 1989 and was a factory "UK Sport" model specification, which included electronically adjustable seats, air conditioning, electric windows and the iconic "Whale Tail" spoiler. The 231 BHP 3.2 litre normally aspirated flat-six engine supplies the power to the much favoured G50 manual transmission, it can propel the car from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds and achieve a top speed in excess of 150mph. This car has now covered over 100,000 miles and its worth noting that a replacement speedometer was fitted 11/9/1990 by Mann Island official Porsche centre when it had 8577 miles recorded on it, making the total mileage c. 109,000, this is documented in the service book. This car has a comprehensive documented service history carried out mainly by Porsche main dealer and Specialist garages, the service book shows that the vehicle has covered only c.500 miles since its last service. As well as benefitting from a Clifford alarm plus immobiliser the car will be sold with 2 original keys, 2 original alarm fobs and comes complete with bookpack, service records, V5C, and original jack and tool kit. This is a great opportunity to purchase an iconic "Fast Road" classic Porsche that presents really well and has clearly been looked after.
