This 1986 911 3.2 litre Carrera was converted to RS type in about 2005, the front wings and bonnet are steel with fibre glass front and rear bumpers and rear ‘duck tail ‘ spoiler similar to an original 2.7 Carrera of ’73. The car’s interior has been partially stripped the door cards replaced with light weight panels the rear seats removed and a strengthening bar fitted. The passenger seat is a period style bucket and the drivers is a modern Recaro race seat with full 4 point harness. The original seat belts are also still in the car. In all this work was carried out most diligently as the end end result is a credible early looking car, which was also repainted at this time. The finish of the paintwork remains good but there is some micro blistering on the wings and boot lid.
The engine is the standard 3.2 litre 231bhp unit but with the addition of a electronically driven supercharger. Often used in race cars these small and light weight units can boost the intake manifold pressure by up to 2psi giving aprox 15hp across the power range, the result doesn’t sound much but it is particularly noticeable during mid range acceleration.
The car has a huge history file, the six previous owners sparing no expense on maintaining the car, mostly at Porsche main dealers and some well known specialists, the car has a copy of the factory service recored stamped until 2009 but there are many other invoices following that, the last 9th Sept.’13 for service work totaling £1,157.14. The mileage is showing as 121,490 which we believe correct as it is backed up by twenty three old MoT’s that go right back to its first MoT in 1989. In all this is very presentable classic Porsche with RS styling, the handling set up is excellent and the added performance makes it a real joy to drive. It is also supplied the original 911 handbook, UK V5C log book and an Mot until Sept.2014.
