Estimated to be 80 percent new, the Carrera 3.2's flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lb ft of torque. Allied to a five-speed manual transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible, making the model reputedly 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. Examples from 1987 onwards had the stronger G50 gearbox in which reverse was located beside the fifth ratio. An optional 'Sport' pack became available during 1984, and included a deeper front valance, 'tea tray' rear spoiler, stiffer Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with black centres. By now all 911s were built with galvanised bodies, so rusting was largely a thing of the past.
This right-hand drive Carrera 3.2 Sport is finished in Dark Blue and trimmed in Brown leather. The vendor considers its bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, flat-six engine and five-speed manual gearbox to all be in "excellent" condition, and informs us that 'F259 CDY' "has never been damaged and drives very well". The Porsche has apparently been "serviced regardless of use" and comes complete with "full history, all handbooks, paperwork and spare keys". The current MOT runs until June 2013.
