1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Available for auction is this 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in Black over a black leather interior. Debuted in 1984, the 911 Carrera shared many of its visual cues with its immediate predecessor, the 911 SC, but received powerful upgrades beneath the shell including a larger 3.2-liter flat-six engine. In 1985, this example came generously optioned with a sunroof, Sport Seats, a limited-slip differential, 16” Fuchs wheels, front and rear spoilers, and Sport Shocks. The seller acquired this Carrera from an immediate family member who had been the car's long-term second owner for the majority of its life. Always garage-kept and meticulously cared for, this example is now being offered for auction out of California with approximately 72k miles on the odometer.

This example comes finished in non-metallic Black and features optional front and rear spoilers equipped from the factory. Optional 16” Fuchs forged alloy wheels are dressed in Nitto NT450 tires. The seller notes some minor imperfections throughout the exterior and that some paintwork was performed after minor damage to the front bumper, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing an accident in 2004.

The cabin is appointed with black leather and features optional equipment including front Sport Seats, a sunroof, cruise control, and an alarm system. An aftermarket Pioneer radio has been installed, and the original radio is said to accompany the sale as well. The seller reports all gauges and electronics to be working properly, and that the air conditioning system was serviced in 2021.

The 1985 Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox delivering up to 207 HP and 192 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels. An optional limited-slip differential and Sport Shocks were equipped from the factory while standard features include four-wheel independent suspension, rack and pinion steering, power-assisted brakes, and stabilizer bars at the front and rear. The seller adds that an engine-out service costing approximately $11k was performed in 2018 including a transmission rebuild, new brake lines, caliper refurbishment, new engine and gearbox mounts, and the installation of a K&N air filter. About 25 years' worth of service records will be included in the sale and are provided for reference in the photo gallery.

This sale will include extensive service records, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, and a clean title.

    @deezPcar car burns clean as you can see from the cold start and walk around video. No smoke no leaks when I pull it out after sitting.

  • 911Scott (seller) 5 days, 4 hoursago

    @deezPcar car has been in ca since 2019 never had a inspection issue. Yes car passes and checks all box’s for smog I don’t see it being a issue it’s a all factory car. Factory exhaust no holes or leaks. Car has always passed any inspection done to it. Always was kept in a garage. Never driven hard or tracked this car has been babied it’s hole life. Makes for a beautiful driver car. Has all the right options. It’s has the cat sticker on the door so I’m sure its not a issue. Sorry no story’s for inspection it’s stock so it’s a none issue when come for smog.

  • deezPcar (registered bidder) 5 days, 7 hoursago

    Hello, great spec here. Being a CA car, has there been any previous Smog issues?

  • 911Scott (seller) 6 days, 19 hoursago

    @AZCollector I updated the gallery with photos of the door frame. Maybe we are looking at a different photo cause I see no holes or anything in the area like in the pic. Maybe it was the light ? I have a photo of the sticker under the hood that should be the paint code ? It’s a factory black on black car. Photos are of driver side door by the hinges. if you would like any other photos from anyway just ask.

  • AZCollector (registered bidder) 6 days, 23 hoursago

    @911Scott The paint code tag is not a decal. It is a square (approx 1"x1") metal plate that has the paint code stamped into it and it is riveted into the body above the door stop and below the rubber circle. In pic 83 you can see the outline of where it was and the 4 holes for the rivets. The plate however is not there. Just curious why it is missing. Pcarmarket does not allow photos to be added but you can see a sample at this website. http://www.adelgigs.com/911colours.shtml

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector this is a 1985 911 carrera sport optioned car ? Front factory left and right sport seats , factory sport suspension , sport carrera wing factory and limited slip trans also factory . I believe the limited slip trans was part of the sport package which this car holds. I posted more photos of the build sheet in the gallery. Any other questions or pics just ask I am happy to provide them !!!

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector again the limited slip is factory option m220 and far as I know came stock in this vin car. A rare and valuable option to have. Also noted are the factory sport seats and all factory glass. As far as paint work yes as I stated there was some paint work done but I don’t believe any on the driver door. Sticker peeling idk why has always been that way to my knowledge. But I posted the vin and the build sheet if you would like to look them up for your self you will see the options this car came with factory are correctly listed in the add I believe.

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @Mikeamoss and yes he got the custom plate in Nc I’m guessing that was plate number before. Yes sport seats left and right are original to the car code i383 is left sport seats and i387 is the right sport seat. I will provide photos of build sheet and all stickers on car. Tho I believe them to be in the photo gallery

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @Mikeamoss yes trans code for this car is 915.68 and m220 is the limited slip code. I have a build sheet data that came with the documents he saved it has 2 different build sheets both have the trans code. Photos in gallery

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector and yes all wires were inspected when the motor was removed and runs and drives flawlessly. All electrical works correctly. My father was a stickler and never went cheep on anything. If the car needed it he paid to have the service done. Far as I know car never sat more then a month or 2 he never drive the car much but he would pull it out the garage and let it run at least every other week.

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector the build sheet data for the vin I posted in the gallery i383 is left sport seat i387 is right sport seat m220 is trans ????? M474 means car came with sport suspension m473 means car came with front and rear spoiler? Vin does not lie . Nore do my photos I am trying to be as clear and open as I can I posted the build sheet and the vin and over a 100 photos of the car from different light to different angles top and bottom. I’m more then happy to provide anything I have and am willing to take it to any shop to get looked over.

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector no add is correct car came with the factory limited slip diff from what I was always told and from what the build sheet data says for the vin. I updated the photo galley with a photo of the build sheet motor code and trans code. I would be more then happy to take a photo of the numbers stamped into the trans if you like ? M220 is the limited slip diff code. Eng code is 930.21 and trans code is 915.68. The motor was pulled to do the trans as far as I know the rest of the work was done cause that’s what the shop said it needed so my father had the work done. Car was in his garage for about 3 years before my mother and him moved to Nc. That’s when he took the car to the shop to get serviced. When they did brakes all the other stuff.

  • AZCollector (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    @AZCollector quick correction:
    In the 2018 rebuild receipts it does NOT speak to the LSD being serviced or present.

  • AZCollector (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    Adding to mikeamoss question:

    Is the ad correct? "generously optioned with a sunroof, Sport Seats, a limited-slip differential, " if so it would be on the option sticker and it is not. Do you have the COA showing it is a "Factory LSD". Is the ad stated incorrectly? if so please update.

    In the 2018 rebuild receipts it does speak to the LSD being serviced or present. do you have in the 25 years of receipts showing the LSD being installed/brand please add to the gallery.

  • AZCollector (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    1.) Pic 83. The door paint tag is missing. Has any paintwork been done? Why is it missing?

    2.) The ad states “Engine Out Service”. Most of the money spent was on the gearbox rebuild. In reviewing the receipts it looks like only plugs, an oil change and valve cover gaskets replaced for leaks? It is easier to service (and replace the sound mat) by pulling both motor. An engine out service usually includes Valve Adjust, Torque Heads, possibly a top end rebuild etc. I see none of those. Have any receipts for engine work done?

    3.) Do you have a Leakdown Test” to show the health of the motor?

    4.) Did the car “sit” for a period of time? A lot of items on the receipt are items one would replace to get a car back on the road after sitting. Brake hoses, fuel lines etc. How long was the car parked before it was serviced in 2018?

    5.) The receipt states a mice nest (See #4) was removed from the engine bay. Were any wires or other parts of the car chewed thru by the mouse. Has the wiring been inspected?

  • Mikeamoss (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    Very nice car!
    Just had a few questions.
    Looking at the build sticker it appears that the car did not come with a limited slip differential (220 option code).
    Was it added later and what brand is it?
    Can you provide a history of the car (timeline).
    Receipt in picture #112 lists the license as CXL1379 looks like receipt is from 2019 but current plate is 1XX1 can you clarify this?
    Are the sport seat’s original to the car?
    Perhaps you could provide a picture of the build sticker in the owners manual as well.

    Thanks

  • 911Scott (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @Armo yes my mom and dad were at a red light. Light turned green and my dad let out the clutch started to roll into the car In front of them. Mom said she screamed he barley touched the back of the car but the lady got out screaming insurance. Not shocking when you see the car. My dad was a no corners cut type of guy. So car went to the shop to get paint chips fixed on the front. She told me there was little to no damage to his car. I can’t even recall it as a child so I know it was nothing big I looked at that car in the garage everyday and can’t recall when that happened. Anymore questions and I can’t ask her !! Just let me know !
