Reviving Porsche’s Carrera designation for the first time since 1977, the Carrera 3.2 debuted in 1984 as the successor to the 911SC and represented the culmination of the G-Series model. Paring a 5-speed manual transmission to its 3.2-liter flat-six, this European example was initially delivered in February 1984 at Voets Autozentrum in Braunschweig, Germany, finished in Slate Blue Metallic over Dark Blue upholstery. It features factory Sport Seats, a rear window wiper, a sunroof, front and rear spoilers, and more. One of its reported two owners is said to have been Tony Corlett, a Marque specialist & author, who owned the car for at least 25 years and imported the vehicle to the United Kingdom in 1998. This Carrera 3.2 is now being offered for auction by its seller with approximately less than 153k kilometers (95k miles) on the odometer.

The seller would like you to know: “First Year Carrera 3.2 (1984). 25+ Years owned by Marque specialist author. Original Paint. These cars are only original once! Diving deeper: It was imported into the UK in 1998 by Tony Corlett. Tony is an aficionado of this model, and wrote the definitive ‘bible’ on the model ‘Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera’ (a copy of the book is included in the sale). As the author of the book, and also the Porsche Club Great Britain model specialist for 20+ Years, you can be assured that Tony knew how to purchase the very best vehicle for his long-term enjoyment, and importantly how to preserve such an original example. This car is featured throughout Tony’s book which nicely documents an important chapter in the history of this special machine. The 1984 Model Year was a big step for Porsche with the first of the G-series cars to feature a fully electronic engine management system. The result is a very sporty and torquey engine, combined with the lightweight construction of the G-Model chassis to provide a very exciting driving experience in the classic Porsche 911 silhouette. The first-year model also retains some unique features such as the 3-spoke steering wheel (latterly 4-spoke), the ‘tombstone sport seats’, and the Engine oil cooler. To learn more about this model, suggest you read Tony’s book! Mechanically, the car drives very well. The 915 gearbox shifts without fault. It benefits from recent work that includes a brake caliper overhaul, and is fully serviced so that the next owner can be confident of its future use."
