This practical and stylish classic Porsche only has 71k miles on the clock!

When it comes to air cooled Porsche 911s, the late Carrera G50 cars built between 1987 and 1989 are among the most desirable. What makes them so desirable? It's the combination of the classic body – and classic character – of the air cooled 911, combined with just the right number of modern touches that make them wonderful to drive and own.

All 1984-1989 3.2 Carreras feature the excellent Bosch Motronic fuel injection system. It's complex enough to allow the car to perform well in all weather conditions, while remaining simple enough for an average DIYer to maintain and diagnose.

What sets the 1987 to 1989 Carreras apart, though, is the Borg-Warner G50 gearbox. The G50 featured a hydraulic clutch and was a smoother shifting gearbox than the rugged but finicky Type 915 transmission it replaced.

This example is finished in Grand Prix White and has impact bumpers, rear spoilers, a power sunroof, and front fog lights. It rolls on Fuchs 16-inch forged alloy wheels with body color centers and are wrapped in 205/55 front and 225/50 rear Continental ExtremeContact tires. It came from the factory optioned with sport shock absorbers, and gets braking power from four-wheel vented disc brakes.

It also sports power adjustable front seats, which are upholstered in black leather, and has a matching dash, door panels, and carpeting. Also included is cruise control, power windows, a/c, Alpine stereo and 10 disc CD changer. See it here.
