Showcasing a sought-after combination of Cassis Red Metallic paint over a Burgundy interior, this 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe was acquired by the seller from a California-based Porsche collector in 2019 after it had reportedly spent much of its life in Texas. The car has since benefitted from over $60k in service and refurbishment including a rebuild of its flat-six engine to upgraded RoW specifications. This beautifully appointed Carrera is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California showing just over 119k miles on the odometer.
This Coupe was factory-finished in the rare and unique shade of Cassis Red Metallic. Factory equipment includes a front valence with integrated fog lights, an electric sliding sunroof, and 16” Fuchs forged alloy wheels. The seller describes the paint as being largely original, noting the front valence, bumper, and mirrors have been refinished during their ownership. Some minor touch-ups are noted on the hood and rear decklid, and the full exterior has been treated to a paint correction. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing minor damage to the driver’s door in 2017 which is said to have resulted in minor dent repair.
The driver is greeted by a Burgundy leather interior with matching carpets and black Porsche-branded floormats. Factory options include a central locking system, cruise control, and elevated steering wheel hub which has since been replaced with a standard-length unit. The seller notes the dashboard has been replaced, the seats have been restored with new foam, the carpets have been reseated, and all leather and vinyl upholstery has been touched-up as needed. All lighting and turn signal switches have been replaced including central locking and window switches. The radio has been upgraded to a new Blaupunkt Bremen Bluetooth head unit paired with new Infinity speakers behind retro-look grills. The A/C system has also been rebuilt using OEM parts.
In 2021, the air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine was rebuilt to RoW specifications by V&S Motors using new high-compression Euro pistons. A cat-bypass pipe has been installed and a new catalytic converter will accompany the sale. The rear wheels are driven through a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. The seller states the shift linkage, suspension, and braking systems have been recently overhauled as well.
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, a spare tire, an air pump, service records, and a clean title.
