We are pleased to offer this 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in Cassis Red Metallic. Representing the inaugural model year for the desirable 5-speed G50 manual transmission, this 1987 example also came factory optioned with front and rear spoilers, a limited-slip differential, a sunroof, and a gorgeous Burgundy leather interior. It was acquired by the current owner in 2015 from a private seller in Tennessee at 84,862 miles and has been driven approximately 6,500 miles since while being regularly maintained by classic Porsche specialists. This stunning air-cooled Carrera is now being offered for auction by its owner out of North Carolina while showing just over 91k miles on the odometer.
This Carrera is finished in the rare shade of Cassis Red Metallic and features factory optioned front and rear spoilers. Upgraded Flat6 Illumination LED headlights have been installed and the seller states that the original headlights will also accompany the sale. A clear protective film has been applied over the front end and headlight lenses, and the seller reports a few minor dings and scrapes throughout the exterior. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This Carrera rides on factory 15" Fuchs wheels which are currently dressed in older Kumho Ecsta AST tires.
Complementing the exterior is a beautiful Burgundy leather interior with matching carpeting. The cabin has been customized with a Momo Prototipo steering wheel, Rennline floorboards, a Rennline adjustable pedal set, and custom-made Coco mats. Factory equipment includes a sunroof, power door locks, power windows, cruise control, air conditioning, and an alarm system. An upgraded Kenwood radio has been installed and the seller reports all instruments and accessories to be working properly.
This Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2L flat-six engine that sends up to 217 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox and factory optioned limited-slip differential. Throughout the seller’s ownership, this 911 has been regularly maintained by local classic Porsche specialists. Service records are provided for reference in the photo gallery showing A/C and oil service in 2019, replacements of the shifter bushings and CV boots in 2018, and a major 85k-mile service in 2015 including new spark plugs and oil return tubes.
This sale will include the original vinyl pouch and warranty booklet, one master key, and a clean title. Sporting a rare color combination and some of the most desirable equipment of its era, this 1987 Carrera offers a fantastic opportunity for any passionate air-cooled enthusiast.
