This vintage 1985 Porsche 911, selling Wednesday on Bring A Trailer, boasts an impressive mileage of just 69k. It is noteworthy to mention that since the turn of the millennium, this coupe had been under the stewardship of a single owner until August 2022.

At first glance, the Carrera's gleaming black finish captures the eye. Though the dealer points out that certain sections like the left door, front bumper cover, and lower front valance have seen a repaint, it remains mesmerizing. Stone chips on the hood narrate tales of its travels.

A unique touch to the exterior is its power-operated sunroof, which stands complemented by a rear spoiler, integrated fog lights, and power-adjustable side mirrors. Ensuring a steady grip on the road are its 16″ Fuchs alloy wheels, paired perfectly with Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires. As for its braking mechanism, the Carrera is outfitted with sport shocks and four-wheel discs, with the left-front brake caliper recently undergoing a rebuild.

Inside, the cabin is adorned with black leather upholstery, evoking a sense of vintage luxury. Modern amenities haven't been overlooked, with power-adjustable front seats, an Alpine cassette stereo, cruise control, and air conditioning making the drive comfortable. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is a statement piece, housing VDO instrumentation that includes an array of gauges and a central tachometer.

Under the hood lies the heart of this beauty – the 3.2-liter M930/21 flat-six engine. This powerful core, rated at 202 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque, has been diligently maintained. Recent services involve an air conditioning system conversion to R134a refrigerant and replacements of engine lid struts and the fan belt.

The driving experience is enhanced by its Type 915 five-speed manual transaxle, which recently had its shifter bushings replaced.

Decoding its option sticker provides intriguing insights:

  • L700 suggests the elegant black paint.

  • LT indicates an all-black interior furnished with partial leather.

  • C02 confirms its production with US emissions equipment.
