Offered for sale is a gorgeous, 48,133 original mile, mechanically excellent 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet finished in uncommon and desirable Slate Blue Metallic (Schieferblaumetallic) over a Grey Beige interior. Sold new by Pioneer Porsche Audi in Denver, CO, where it would serve three local Denver owners over its 31+ years until we acquired it this winter. Throughout that period it was always garaged and well maintained, always treated as a seasonal fair weather weekend driver, never used in cold, rain or snow. It consequently comes as no surprise that the car remains exceptionally clean and mechanically turn-key, ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
The Slate Blue Metallic finish is in excellent condition, consistently deep and lustrous and marred only by the most negligible of imperfections (a few professionally touched up rock chips, etc.), none of which detract from the car’s considerable appeal. The body is entirely straight with factory consistent panel fits and gaps throughout and no evidence of any accidents. All of the glass and rubber is in excellent condition, the soft top was recently replaced with correct German canvas and the OEM Fuchs 16×8 and 16×9 wheels are flawless and wrapped in Dunlop tires with plenty of remaining tread. The car’s undercarriage is completely rust-free, original and untouched, showing only the wear and road dust consistent with 48k miles of well-cared-for use.
The car’s interior is equally as clean, the Grey Beige seats showing only nominal wear and the carpets and interior panels in great original condition. The original dash houses a more modern Kenwood CD/Radio/Aux unit, however the original Blaupunkt unit remains with the car. Everything works, including the A/C, power mirrors, cruise control and power windows. Opening the boot reveals clean, undamaged lining covering an entirely original front compartment, replete with the space-saver spare tire, complete original took kit and original factory data sticker on the interior of the hood. The car also comes with it’s original owner manual and service booklet, multiple keys as well as an entirely clean CARFAX report.
The car has always been well maintained (most recently by German Car Shoppe in Denver) and is mechanically excellent, the bulletproof 3.2L engine firing up without any smoke or hesitation, pulling strongly and smoothly through each of the original 5 speed transmission’s gears. The engine is dry and compression is excellent (180 across all cylinders), oil pressure is strong and the clutch and rear struts are both new. From behind the wheel it’s easy to understand why this era of 911s is one of the most desirable: it beautifully melds efficiency, reliability and everyday ride quality with a truly visceral, vintage driving feel that is sure to provide the driver a grin-inducing experience.
If you’re in the market for a 3.2L 911 Carrera, this beautiful example deserves your serious consideration. It checks all the right boxes: low mileage, very original, desirable livery, clean cosmetics and strong, well-maintained mechanicals. With the market reflecting continued appreciation, this is arguably one of the best examples of one of Porsche’s best creations and we’re sure it will provide its next owner as much pleasure and pride of ownership as it did its three prior.
