Developed under the watchful eye of Porsche Chief Executive Peter Schutz, the 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the September 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show. Estimated to be eighty percent new, the model's 3164cc (hence '3.2') flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to five-speed transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and 153mph, the Carrera 3.2 was progressively developed over the course of its six-year production run and is now feted by many for being the last of the torsion-bar suspended 911s. A special order car, chassis WPOZZZ91ZKS102429 not only boasts the preferred `Sport Equipment Package' (front / rear spoliers, sport shock absorbers) but also such desirable factory-fitted options as: an extended hub steering wheel, shortened gear lever, air-conditioning, Velvet Red `soft look' leather upholstery, graduated top tinted windscreen, ultrasonic alarm and heated front seats. Supplied new by Walton Ltd of Maidstone, Kent on 10th March 1989, the 911 is understood to have covered just 69,000 miles during the intervening twenty-seven years (an average of 2,555 per annum). As a late Carrera 3.2 model, `F973 SJD' features the sought after G50 five-speed manual gearbox. Stated to show no signs whatsoever of previous accident damage, the Coupe is described by the vendor as being in `excellent' condition with regard to its bodywork, original engine, interior trim, electrics and transmission, while he considers its paintwork to be `very good'. Driven some 10,000 miles since entering the current ownership in March 2008, the 2+2-seater is accompanied by a written endorsement from Porsche specialist Norwich Premier Coachworks (www.porschenorfolk.co.uk) as to its exceptional originality, large quantity of invoices for servicing / parts, MOT certificate valid until March 2017, two keys, handbooks, Blaupunkt radio cassette player and an as yet unused spacesaver spare wheel plus associated compressor!
