Lot details

Registration No: A911 SSP
Chassis No: WPOZZZ91ZES1O1216
MOT: March 2023

  • Presented in the ever desirable Guards Red with Tan upholstery, with ‘Sport pack’ features, as well as Porsche Classic Communications Management (PCCM)
  • Subject to extensive works with Porsche Centre Brooklands in March and Aprill 2022 totalling in excess of £5,300
  • impressive history file containing a large number of MOTs dating back as far as 1990, invoices dating back as far as 1988 and more

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 3164 cc (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. 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.

Manufactured in 1983 and registered in 1984, this Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 is offered for sale in the ever desirable Guards Red with contrasting tan interior. ‘’A911 SSP’’ benefits from desirable specification including the aforementioned ‘Sport’ pack upgrades, as well as a Viper immobiliser system and Porsche Classic Radio, giving Apple Car Play, sat nav and more whilst in keeping with the classic dashboard design. The unit cost of this system was £1,866 alone.

Overall, this particular example has benefited from being looked after by largely Porsche main dealers, Porsche specialists and for a period of time, Meridian Modena. In its current ownership, Porsche Centre Brooklands have undertaken a number of works, with the most recent between March and April 2022. This work included a sunroof overhaul, replacement seat belts, engine struts, Porsche Classic Communications Management (PCCM) installation, replacement track rod ends and turbo gaitors, steering rod and much mechanical fettling at a total cost of over £5,300. A reluctant sale by the owner only because of a more modern purchase, this 911 is now ready for its new owner to enjoy.

Accompanied with the vehicle is an impressive history file containing a large number of MOTs dating back as far as 1990, invoices dating back as far as 1988 and even a printed log of all the vehicle’s history including services and keeper changes with mileages, garages and more until 2004. In this log, you can see the vehicle was subject to a replacement speedometer in May of 93. The previous recorded mileage was 63,999 miles, with the replacement odometer now showing 60,508. This brings a total recorded mileage of 124,507. Also included within the history file is some photographic history of a previous light restoration and the vehicles comes with an MOT valid until 18 March 2023 for good measure. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment, paintwork and transmission all as ‘Very Good’, with the interior ‘Good’.
