The Appeal 

Porsche's 911 has long been hailed as one of the best sports cars ever to have been developed. Generation after generation has been entranced by its seductive curves and iconic design, with each iteration showcasing a unique take on Porsche's blueprint the world has come to adore. 

The 911 Carrera 3.2 was Porsche's last iteration of the original 911 and is widely considered one of the best classic Porsches built thanks to its ability to balance the classic 911 feel with a touch of modern refinement. Magnificently designed, the Carrera 3.2 became the poster car of the 80s, its silhouette being etched onto school desks and penned onto the back of exercise books. A dream car for many, that displayed wealth, style and success in the most authentic and splendid way. 

Powered by a robust 3.2L air-cooled flat-six, the classic Porsche provides a heart-pounding performance alongside a symphony of euphoric engine notes. Its sharp handling and exceptional weight distribution allow for a responsive, agile driving experience that thrills and intimidates even the most experienced. 

Registered in 1984, this Chiffon White example is presented in sublime condition thanks to a recent exterior restoration and meticulously cared-for ownership lasting 34 years. It offers collectors and enthusiasts a superb opportunity to own one of the best classic 911s to have been built, in very original form. This is a stunning car that has benefited from mechanical recommissioning including several new parts and will likely only appreciate further in time.

The Interior 

  • Excellent condition 
  • Opulent & luxurious upholstery 
  • Driver-focused sporty style 
  • Kenwood stereo with remote 10 stack CD selector 

Inside the cab of this Carrera 3.2, you’re greeted with a stellar combination of opulent upholstery and nostalgic athletic style. From the dash to the door cards, seats to the sunroof, it's simply gorgeous and in excellent condition throughout. The attractive sports seats are trimmed in a mix of beige leather and fabric and carry almost no indication of use. Their supportive shape cradles the front occupants providing ample comfort and allow plenty of legroom. 

The car's switchgear and electronics are all reported to be fully operational, as is the electric sunroof, a factory option which allows more of that sensuous flat-6 noise to fill your ears. Highly original and thoroughly enjoyable, the interior of this 911 is one of the best we’ve seen. 

The Exterior 

  • Excellent recently restored condition 
  • Fresh Chiffon White paint 
  • Colour-coordinated Fuchs alloy wheels 

Timeless, recognisable and absolutely beautiful, the 911’s design has become iconic and still to this day influences the automaker's modern offerings. Beautifully showcasing the model's sweeping lines and famous headlights the Carrera 3.2 is arguably one of the best-executed 911 generations. 

This example heightens that beauty thanks to its stunning Chiffon White paint, an original colour offered by Porsche but one that is not seen very often. The 911’s athletic appearance is reinforced with a huge rear wing and stocky, poised stance. It is a symbol of automotive excellence and this car is a wonderful example of just that.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
