1987 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 from North America
I love my adult go-kart!
Nothing yet, I just bought the car. Only have had it for a month or so.
It's funny to me how certain parts are so outrageously expensive, while others (which would seem to be) are not.
I have always wanted a late 80's 911. This was THE car when I was in high school. I never thought I'd be fortunate enough to own one, but the time came and I jumped on it.; In my opinion '87 is the best aircooled year - first year of the G50 transmission, hydraulic clutch and better halogen headlights among other improvements.
It's a triple black cabriolet with the turbo body look (large tea tray fin, flared fenders and ground effects). It has also been lowered quite significantly. It's not refined, it's loud and stinks like an old German boat, but it's a blast to drive. The tires, top, all rubber and interior are brand new - the car looks nearly perfect. The previous 2 owners took excellent care of it - I have all service records since new, including all the above mentioned items.
It is nothing special below 4500 rpm, but above that, it's a screamer. The Fabspeed exhaust, cat by-pass, intake and performance chip have bumped hp to 250. This doesn't sound like much, but the light weight and torquey engine give the ride great 2nd and 3rd gear acceleration.
I could have bought a much newer one for the money, but this is one of the last handbuilt ones and the aircooled engine is easy enough for me to work on.
I hope to keep the car forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
