1989 Porsche 911

Few cars are as visceral as a Porsche 911, nd that's a quality that just about triples in a cabriolet. By the time this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera cabrio was built, ost of the tail happy behavior was finely honed out...but not all. You never forget you're in a rear-engined car, nd you don't want to. Gorgeous cars like this Signal Red 911 here have a way of getting into your soul, nd you'll wonder how you lived without one.Outside, ou're looking at one very stock Porsche. The paint is very nice with few marks, nd the door panels are perfect in a way that can only indicate that the car's never been hit. The low mileage (only 51,908 actual miles) confirms what your eye can see, s well and the quality of the Porsche factory is tangible everywhere you look. A factory chin spoiler, ody-colored bumpers, nd the "whale tail" rear spoiler were favorite details that made these cars iconic, nd it also carries Euro-spec headlight lenses and a black Carrera emblem on the deck lid. The doors open and close with a remarkable sense of precision, specially for a convertible, nd there's zero evidence that this car has been raced, bused, r otherwise mistreated. The stance is even factory correct; this is nearly what this car looked like new!Eight way adjustable black leather seats invite you in with a look that's comfortable but not worn out. A few comfort marks are to be expected but it doesn't look like the hides have been baked by the sun, hich is unusual in a high-profile convertible like this. Porsche's familiar gauges are the epitome of simplicity and quick-reference, ith a big tach front and center and auxiliary gauges flanking it on either side. The shifter works rather well considering the transmission is way behind you and the fat leather-wrapped steering wheel telegraphs whatever the front tires are doing directly to your palms. The factory AM/FM/cassette stereo remains in place and the factory A/C is still functional thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade. Overhead there's a nice-fitting black canvas convertible top that folds easily into a neat stack that preserves the back seats (well, ort of, ou probably don't want adults riding back there). The trunk is richly carpeted in black, dding to the luxurious look and feel of Porsche's flagship.Open the engine lid and find the strong 3.2 liter flat six, ood for 217 horsepower. That doesn't sound like much, ut this is a 2800 pound car, nd it's plenty enough to zip by 95% of cars built today, et alone the dismal 1980's. There's a surprising amount of torque, ots of revs, nd unadulterated mechanical music. 3.2-liter Carreras are known for their longevity, nd thanks to conscientious maintenance (with receipts!), ou don't have to worry about this one biting you in the back later. Backing the motor is a G50 five speed, hich was a big upgrade over the 4-speed used until 1987. This is a VASTLY improved gearbox with a hydraulically actuated clutch and a different synchro design, iving it a truly modern feel. Put the car on a lift and there's not much to see, nd that's a good thing! The motor is VERY dry, he floor pans are straight, nd there are no issues to report. Heck, ou can still see factory overspray on the floors! The exhaust offers a great flat-six wail that's never obnoxious and Factory 16x6 and 16x7 Fuchs wheels fill the fenders with fat Michelin performance radials.If you're looking for a true sports car, ew are as pure as a 911. If you're looking for a purchase that will hold its value AND provide years of enjoyment, his gorgeous Carrera belongs in your garage. Call today!
