1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe G50 5-Speed

We are pleased to offer this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in Black over a Cashmere Beige partial leather interior.  Representing the final model year of the 911 Carrera, this 1989 example features a desirable G50 5-speed manual transmission and also comes factory equipped with Sport shock absorbers, a short-throw shifter, and a power-operated sunroof.  Originally sold in Florida, this Carrera eventually made its way to the West Coast in 1998 where it remained up until it was recently acquired by the current owner in Texas.  Accompanied by the original owner’s manuals, stamped service book, tools, air compressor, spare tire, and jack, this beautifully appointed 1989 example is now being offered for auction while showing approximately 109k miles on the odometer.

This 911 is finished in Black and the car is reported to have spent its life in dry climates while always being garage-kept.  The paint is described to be mostly original and in good overall condition aside from some swirl marks, touched-up chips on the hood, and one small dent on the left front fender.  Matching VIN stickers also remain in place throughout the body, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  This example is equipped with a Carrera rear spoiler, a front air dam, front fog lights, and classic 16” Fuchs wheels with black painted center and silver anodized outer lips.  The Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires are recommended for replacement within the next 1k miles.

Inside, this 911 features a Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior with a factory optioned short-throw shifter, a steering wheel with an elevated hub, and a power-operated sunroof.  Additional equipment includes cruise control, a sound system, and air conditioning.  The seats are said to have been previously redyed, an aftermarket radio has been installed, and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional except for the right front fog light and the A/C which has been disconnected.

This Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2L flat-six engine that sends 217 HP stock to the rear wheels by way of a sought-after G50 5-speed manual transmission.  Sport shock absorbers were equipped from the factory and the engine has been upgraded with a Steve Wong performance chip, SSI heat exchangers, and a Mille Miglia sport muffler.  Dual catalytic converters have also been equipped in compliance with California emissions standards.  New brake rotors are said to have been recently installed and the car is described to be in strong mechanical order having been routinely serviced throughout its life.

This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, stamped service book, air compressor, toolkit, jack, spare tire, and a clean title.  A desirable final model year example, this G50 Carrera Coupe may very well be the air-cooled Porsche you’ve been searching for.

    @jigz997, correct, I have not modified the car since it came from CA, and it should pass CA emissions. I have not had a compression test but the shop that maintained the car and recently did a complete fluid change said the car runs so well, there's no obvious need to do a compression test. Also the underneath of the engine looks clean and doesn't leave any oil drips on the ground. It does not require additional oil between oil changes. As far as the body, most of the car is original paint. The left rear quarter panel was repainted. Lastly, the video was added today.

    @Pcarmarket: Hope all is well and please upload the videos provided. Thank you

  • Jigz997 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @exton, since this car was a california car up to 2014 and assuming no new modification under your ownership, this car should pass calif smog?

  • Jigz997 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @exton, excellent car!!! Any chance this car had a compression test? Does the car require intermittent oil filling in between oil changes? Any body work or paint respray?

  • Exton (seller) 1 monthago

    Hi all, I submitted several videos to Pcarmarket. I'm assuming they will post these tomorrow for everyone to view! The car does not have a window sticker. In regards to the history, I bought the car from an individual in CA who had owned the car since 2014. He used the car sparingly on weekends. He told me the car spent the majority of its life in the West coast which is verified in the records. The previous owners did normal routine services throughout their ownership. The service book concerns more on the service history rather than the ownership history. There you can see the scheduled services earlier in its life. I've got to enjoy the car for the better part of the year. A few things to note, the turn signal switch doesn't cancel when you turn the steering wheel back into place and also the oil pressure gauge is pegged at the high position. Either a bad connection in the wire or gauge itself. The engine runs fantastic. After sitting for weeks, it doesn't even send a puff of smoke on start up. Idle is perfect. Runs like a champ!

    Exton, awesome car! Are you able to talk a little bit about the owners history? The Carfax shows several new owner registrations but in the owners manual it only shows two. How long do you own the beauty?

    Could you please post videos with cold start, engine revving and pulls, and open up the engine compartment and rev it? I am very interested but would like to hear how it runs, as someone who owns an '85 Targa. Thanks--beautiful car!
