A striking appearance in Grand Prix white, factory code 908, this beautiful Carrera Sport has benefitted from knowledgeable and attentive ownership, reflected by the condition we see here today. Globally recognised, the profile, sleek body shape, swollen rear arches and rear mounted ‘whale-tail’ spoiler remain a design classic. Also supplied with this 911, a genuine front bonnet with twin road lamp pods fitted and wired, should the new owner wish to alter or “Back-Date” the appearance.
All materials incorporated into the interior of a 911 are always of a high quality, this model is no exception. Trimmed in Marine Blue leatherette with leather side bolsters to the front sport seats, and a pinstripe insert, there is very little wear to be seen. The Marine Blue theme continues with headlining, carpets and door cards, all in favourable condition showing no damage or excessive use. The famous five dial instrument binnacle, with central mounted rev counter is clear and in fine working order, as are all other ancillaries. The two rear seats fold down as they should, to create a very usable extra stowage area. The original Blaupunkt Toronto SQR46 radio has latterly been upgraded with a desirable Becker Mexico unit. The Motolita steering wheel fits comfortably to hand, the coloured Porsche Shield mounted on the central boss.

The C16 original U.K. Carrera Sport has benefitted from attentive and long term ownership; one previous custodian having enjoyed the 3.2 from 2001 for the next 16 years, with records for the majority of former keepers. It should be noted not a single advisory has been issued following the annual MOT test right back to the start of online records in 2006. Supplied with original owners wallet, service and hand books, two keys, large history file with original invoices, virtually every MOT certificate back to the early 90’s to confirm the genuine low mileage.
THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Without doubt, one of the very best 911 3.2 Coupes we have had the pleasure of driving. Starts willingly, idles smoothly with just enough rasp from the rear air-cooled flat six. Subtle and well-recognised improvements have enhanced the experience, to become more connected and focussed. A front strut-brace, monoblock four-pot front callipers, Bilstein shock absorbers, Dansk SSI heat exchangers and rear box. Currently fitted with a Performance ECU chip courtesy of Steve Wong @ 911 Chips.com, not only improves fuel efficiency, but the modest power increase to 230bhp transforms the performance and response of this already very well sorted 911. As it should be, a joy to drive, with seemingly torque to space in all gears and at virtually any speed. Braking is sharp, steering precise and turn-in capabilities makes you want to hunt down the next fast corner. Should the new owner wish to return to factory standard spec, the enhancements are all very easily and cheaply reversed, although we would strongly recommend first experiencing this Carrera Sport in its current guise! Has there ever been a better time to explore the pleasure of air-cooled Porsche 911 ownership?
