1985 Porsche 911 M505 Conversion

You’ve dreamt of owning a 911 and this is your opportunity for a truly special one. The 3.2 liter rear-mounted engine allows for exceptional handling on winding country roads or quick acceleration on straightaways. This car goes from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, an incredible feat for engineering in the 20th century and an extraordinary feeling as you are pushed into the back of your seat. The 911 is the gold standard for sports car enthusiasts especially those produced in the 80s, referred to as the ‘golden age’ of Porsche. The wide body of this car creates elegant curves and lines which combine racing influences with a business-worthy coupe. The sleek white exterior beautifully contrasts the luxurious black interior. The slantnose in this particular car sets it apart from the rest and gives it an even more unique, head-turning look.

A single-owner car like this is incredibly hard to find.

From Hagerty

The 3.2-liter 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera debuted hot on the heels of a very successful run of 911SC models, built from 1978 to 1983. The Carrera—priced at $32,000—shared most of its visual cues with its immediate predecessor, but benefitted from added power and performance, as well as other evolutionary updates.

The cars came as they had when the SC bowed out—in coupe, open Cabriolet, and the in-between Targa body styles. The chief upgrade in the Carrera was the larger 3.2-liter flat six engine, which looked much like that of the 3.0 it replaced but was built chiefly of all-new parts. One crucial change was an improved timing chain tensioner, which had been an issue on previous models. Also new was Bosch Motronic fuel injection, which replaced the K-Jetronic system of yore. The engine produced 200 horsepower and came mated to a Getrag five-speed manual transmission. This was enough to propel the Carrera from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds. Changes were few for 1985, though the Turbo Look package now carried over to Cabriolets and Targas.

Note: Though undamaged, this car has been issued a salvage title, so the price seems low compared to other cars of this condition. The car was stolen and missing for more than 21 days which results in a salvage title in some states. There was no damage to the car and it has been inspected thoroughly and remains in near-perfect condition to this day.
