Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer a very special 911 3.2 Targa. The Porsche company had managed to produce 250,000 911’s in 25 years, so decided to celebrate the milestone by producing a limited run of cars known as the Commemorative or Jubilee edition cars. In total just 875 cars were produced for worldwide markets in Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa form.
All the cars featured the stunning Diamond blue metallic paint and were filled with an extensive list of standard features that were not available in standard specification cars. These options included a powered passenger seat, central locking capabilities, and a more extensive windscreen washing system. The interior was presented in Diamond silver with blue crushed-effect leather and the seats featured Ferry Porsche’s signature embossed in the headrest.
In 1987 the Carrera range was facelifted and revised. Many of the changes over the previous iteration of the Carrera helped to greatly improve the car and the driving experience. But there was no doubting that the most significant change was the introduction of the Getrag G50 gearbox. Along with the introduction of a hydraulic rather than cable operated clutch, this dramatically enhanced the shift quality and the driving experience. The 911 is powered by an air-cooled 930/25 3.2 litre engine with revised Motronic engine management that increased power output and enabled it to run on 95 octane fuel.
The German magazine “Auto, Motor, Sport” summarized the experience driving the renewed 911 G-series, “The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 offers driving in its finest form. The cockpit is a feast for the eyes, the engine one for the ears.” Today, the 911 Carrera 3.2 is considered to be one of the best classic Porsches. It’s the last Porsche 911 with the unique shape of the early 911s, embodying the end of a sports car era which lasted for 26 years.
