Up for auction is an exceptional 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe finished in classic Guards Red. Due to its clean and highly original state, this 911 would be right at home in any collector’s garage. The car started its life in Georgia, eventually making its way to Pennsylvania where it currently resides. Showing only 36,106 original miles on the odometer, this Carrera is a prime example of what is so special about this timeless sports car.
This 911 still retains its original Guards Red finish, making it that much more special. The exterior is stated to be in excellent condition for its age and mileage with only a few minor rock chips and a small ding on the back side of the passenger side mirror. This car also retains its original 16" alloy Fuchs style wheels that are wrapped in period correct Goodyear Eagle tires with ample tread.
The black leather interior of this 911 is stated to be in excellent condition with only minor creasing on the driver's seat bolster. This Carrera was ordered with factory options such as a sunroof, alarm system, and a Monterey digital radio. All electrical systems and accessories are in great working order including the A/C. The fully original interior on this 911 helps to make it a rolling time capsule.
This 911’s 3.2-liter flat six engines produces 207HP and accelerates this car to 60 mph in under 6 seconds, still impressive by today’s standards. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via the desirable 915 manual transmission. This Carrera has been maintained properly throughout its life and is stated to be in perfect running condition. The seller does note that a previous owner, an engineer, fabricated a one-off “axle lift” system on this 911. This system incorporates a bar underneath the car, fitted with wheels that allow the car to simply roll rather than scrape over surfaces during bottom-outs. This system will not only prevent scrapes, but will protect expensive components from critical damage. (Original bar included with sale)
The sale of this highly original 911 will include a clean Carfax, original tools, keys, spare tire and window sticker; all of which are in good condition. As the market heats up on all air-cooled 911’s, pristine and highly original examples such as this one are quickly climbing in value and are being snatched up by enthusiastic collectors worldwide. This is your rare chance to own a true piece of Porsche history.
