We are pleased to offer this 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in the outstanding combination of Granite Green Metallic over a Grey Green interior. Featuring a highly desirable G50 5-speed manual gearbox, this highly original 1988 example was purchased by its current owner about 20 years ago at just under 15k miles. The car was thoroughly inspected at the time of purchase and has been garage-kept and sparingly driven ever since. With all routine service reported to have been kept up to date, this 1988 Carrera is now being offered by its longtime owner out of South Carolina with just over 40k miles showing on the odometer, accompanied by the original window sticker, books, and tools.
This example is finished in the rare special-order color of Granite Green Metallic, an option that commanded an additional $822 on the original sticker price. The paint is said to have been kept in very good original condition with only small chips noted under the driver’s side mirror and just behind the passenger door. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX and recent paint meter readings. Some exterior features include a front spoiler, fog lights, and classic Fuchs wheels with polished outer lips and black painted centers and caps. The original 16”x 6” front wheels have been retained and upgraded Turbo-spec 16”x 9” rear wheels were fitted under previous ownership. The car has also reportedly been lowered to European ride height.
The exterior is complemented by a beautiful Grey Green partial leather interior. Factory optional features include a Blaupunkt “Reno” radio, a shorter gear shift lever, automatic heating control, an alarm system, and an electric sunroof. The air conditioning system is said to be fully operational and was recently converted to R134a. The electric sunroof is currently nonfunctional.
This Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine that sends as much as 217 HP to the rear wheels through a sought-after G50 5-speed manual gearbox. All routine service is said to have been addressed as needed, and over forty maintenance invoices are said to be included which are mostly from Porsche dealers. The fuel tank sending unit has been recently replaced and the car was just brought to a Porsche "Gold Meister" technician for a thorough pre-sale inspection and 40k mile recommended service.
This sale will include the original key set, window sticker, owner’s manuals, tools, spare tire, air pump, service records, a car cover, front bra, leather mirror covers, and a clean title. With its remarkable factory specifications, low mileage, and preferable G50 gearbox, this highly original Carrera would be an absolute treasure for any discerning air-cooled collector.
