This particular 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera was purchased for $39,850 new on May 27th, 984 at Autohaus Porsche in Rochester, ew York. It was enjoyed by its original owner for almost 10 years until it returned to Autohaus in September of 1993 with 51,000 miles when he decided to trade it in towards the new 964 series. Shortlythereafter, he car was purchased for $19,000 by its second owner, transportation engineer, ho meticulously maintained and sparingly drove the car during his lengthy 23 years of stewardship which ended late 2015. Now available for purchase,This Carrera represents a turn-key opportunity to drive and enjoy a truly symbolic motorcar with pride as originally intended by its creator “Butzi” Porsche.
‘Pleasure only’ is a term generally reserved for insurance policy restrictions, f which I’m sure more than one of you can empathize. September of 1993 marked the beginning of a love affair between a 9 year-old air-cooled 911 and a 37 year-old transportation engineer. He began searching for his first 911 and, fter several months, ound just the car he was looking for in his local newspaper classifieds. One phone call to Autohaus Porsche in Rochester, ew York and he was on the way to inspect the silver coupe which had been recently traded in on a new model. After a quick walk-around, t was clear he had found everything he had been patiently searching for. When it comes down to it, elling the rest of the story on this particular 1984 Carrera, pleasure only’ is the perfect adjective phrase.

Given his natural tinkering spirit, he engineer was eager to enhance his new toy. First on the list was a fresh set of BFGoodrich Comp TA tires, ew brake pads on all four corners, heel bearing lubrication, nd a valve adjustment with accompanying oil change. Of course, eing an engineer, otes were taken. Every service performed on the car, e it great or small, as noted along with corresponding mileage. His duty to document paralleled his passion for this vehicle and the care it received under his stewardship.
"23 years of hand-written service records"
While regular maintenance was certainly a pillar of the cars life, o unnecessary changes were made to disturb its soul. As consequence, he car remains predominantly original. The original sport-option Recaros, hile showing some minimal wear, till have strong bolster support and plush, ealthy leather. The original, ate-coded gauges all read crystal clear with zero fogging of the glass or fading of the needles. The dash cover is in immaculate condition with zero cracks or shrinkage on the edges. The upgraded R134A air-conditioning works flawlessly when operated from its blemish-free control panel. The stereo head unit was upgraded in 2002 with a premium Blaupunkt unit and accompanying CD-changer, he original radio is no longer with the car. The deep black carpet still shows healthy fluff with no balding areas or signs of letting go. Overhead the sun visors are still tight with no trace of the usual bloat and the original black headliner is in excellent condition with no sagging or tears. At your back the rear seats appear unused and the parcel tray is unblemished, porting its original Blaupunkt speakers. Speaking of stereo, he door cards are in fantastic condition showing minimal wear still supporting their original Blaupunkt speakers. The original spare tire, ack, nd complete tool-kit are at home in the front compartment. They have been joined by the aforementioned 6-disk CD changer and a Rennline strut brace for added stability, oth of which are easily reversible.
"The original Recaro Sport Seats still show excellent life"
Keeping in line with the theme of our narrative, his car was driven sparingly - largely due to New York State's limited supply of nice weather. From 1994 to 2015 the car only amassed 49,000 miles, n average of 2,300 per year, otaling its current 100,145. As noted, he car was exercised regularly every year with no extended periods of comatose. Many air-cooled experts agree leaving these cars dormant for long periods of time can have debilitating mechanical effects. Regular exercise and scheduled maintenance both contribute to this cars current excellent mechanical condition. Most recently, t 100,050 miles, he Carrera received a major tune-up. This included a new clutch disk, ressure plate, hrowout bearing, lywheel seal, alve adjustment, alve cover gaskets, il change, nd belts. With all necessary maintenance items recently addressed, his car starts, uns, rives, urns, nd stops as it should. Acceleration is smooth and strong with no hesitation, he new clutch grabs with tenacity and the 915 transmission shifts directly with ease. There are no odd noises emanating from the engine compartment and the car tracks straight and true at speed with zero vibration. The steering is direct and responsive, esulting in a well-balanced car with bona fide analog road feel. A huge part of the passion that is owning an air-cooled 911 is the driving experience and driving this car is pure pleasure.

As the photos show, he car is in very good cosmetic condition. This is partly a result of recent cosmetic work. Unfortunately, n October of 2015 the car was victim of a random act of vandalism. The hood and both front fenders were cowardly keyed while the owner was at dinner with his wife. One can only imagine the heartache felt once the owner witnessed what had been done to his long-term avocation. This was the catalyst that motivated his sale of the vehicle. In December 2015, he car was professionally repaired and refinished using PPG Concept Acrylic Urethane base/clear system. The result is a stunning, lemish-free front end which is indistinguishable to the unenlightened. In order to complement the freshly refinished nose, he rest of the vehicle underwent a complete detail including color-sanding and hand-polishing its paint in order to bring out the incredible deep luster you see now.

A very important and often overlooked aspect of the exterior detail was the vehicle's underside. While the engine was out receiving its new clutch components, he chassis was raised on a lift with the wheels removed and the undercarriage was comprehensively degreased and steam cleaned. As the photos show, ou could eat off the bottom of this car. The floor pans are original, traight, nd dent-free - proof that the car has never been improperly lifted or bottomed out. The car has zero oil leaks; the case, alve covers, tc are all bone dry. The original 16” Fuchs alloy wheels are in excellent condition with no curb-rash, ings, r bends whatsoever. The tires on the car are less than 4 years old with under 5,000 miles of use.

It would pair well with the aficionado looking to add a very nice vehicle to his or her collection which he or she can enjoy driving semi-regularly without apprehensively staring at the odometer. Appropriate weather is coming, ill you be enjoying it in this heirloom quality, echanically fresh, osmetically beautiful Porsche that’s eager for its next adventure.
