Evaluation: One of 240 built in this color and represented as a one-owner car. Recent service. The paint is rough with odd, light scratching all over. The exterior plastic and wheels are aged, and the rubber trim around the left rear bumperette is very loose. Worn, discolored steering wheel and shift knob (driving gloves? Not in here). Dirty and oxidized underneath, particularly the exhaust. It is an old car with 52,044 miles, but I’ve seen older and more used Porsches that are much more pampered than this. Although inherently collectible as a special edition model, it’s used.
Bottom Line: But even tired air-cooled 911s aren’t cheap anymore. The bidders were drawn to the single owner and the 25th Anniversary Edition trim (which came with either Satin Black Metallic or Silver Metallic paint, Silk Grey/black piped leather, stitched leather console) and put up a hefty premium over what other 3.2 Carreras in #3 condition typically sell for.
