1988 Guards Red Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet
By 1988 the 911’s future as a model was assured within Porsche’s lineup. Throughout the mid-80s gradual improvements began to trickle in for the 3.2-liter 911 Carrera: integrated fog lights in 1984, an updated interior in 1986, in 1987 the new, and much improved G50 transmission was introduced, and by 1988 electric seat height adjustment was made standard.
Porsche engineers are clearly loath to stand still! However, there are aspects of the 911 Porsche that would never change. It was still very much a hand built sports car as was the case upon introduction as the 901 in 1964.
Direct steering feel, world class braking, and, of course, the raspy, metallic engine note of the famous air-cooled flat-six still remained. In fact, the combination of both old and new mark the late 1980s Carrera 3.2s as the most accessible, yet classic, generations of Porsche as it is with this 1988 911 Carrera Cabriolet. Finished in Guards Red over a partial Black leather interior, it was optioned when new with 16in forged Fuchs wheels, cruise control and an electrically operated Cabriolet soft top.
With just under 87,000 miles this is a Cabriolet to enjoy without the worry of putting too many miles on its VDO odometer. Rather than fret, those accumulated miles represent time spent driving through the mountains, to the beach or even as the ultimate light use daily driver.
This Particular Porsche has remained mostly Original for Many Years and That IS What We Like To See in Older Original Vehicles of Any Type,,, Especially Exotic Sports Like Porsches.
This Porsche is Beautiful!
