BaT Auction: 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera
This 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera is finished in black over black leather and powered by an air-cooled 3.2L flat-six mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle. The car was purchased new at Holbert Porsche in Warrington, Pennsylvania, remained in the Northeast under previous owners, and was acquired by the seller from a Pennsylvania dealer in 2016. Factory equipment includes front and rear spoilers, Fuchs wheels, and sport shocks. The engine was rebuilt in 2017 during the seller’s ownership and prior service records are said to date from new. This 911 shows 81k miles and is offered with a clean AutoCheck report, original purchase documents, a Porsche CoA, and a clear Massachussetts title in the seller’s name.
Body panels are finished in Black (L700), and front and rear spoilers appear among original equipment listed on the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity below. Stone chips can be seen on the front bumper and hood and small nicks are present on the plastic bumper trim and lower spoiler lip.
Staggered-width black and polished Fuchs wheels are mounted with 15″ Goodyear Eagle GT tires measuring 195/65 in the front and 215/60 out back. The front and rear bumpers were refinished and fitted with replacement bellows in early 2017.
The cabin is trimmed in black with optional equipment including cruise control, an anti-theft system, and a power sunroof. A Kenwood cassette stereo replaces the original Blaupunkt. The VDO odometer reads 81k miles, with 500 added by the seller over two years.
Power-adjustable seats are upholstered in partial leather with perforated center inserts. Gallery photographs show the condition of the bolsters, headliner, and folding rear seats.
Pictures of the front trunk sheet metal can be seen in the gallery along with the options sticker, fuel tank, battery, spare wheel, and factory tool roll.
The 3.2L air-cooled flat-six is mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle and was rated at 207 horsepower when new. Following the seller’s 2016 acquisition the engine was found to be leaking oil, and a rebuild was commissioned. Receipts shown in the gallery document over $10k of work performed by Auto Support in Stow, Massachussetts, including a new clutch, oil lines, fuel filter, and other miscellaneous repairs.
A collection of underside photographs can be seen in the gallery below.
Service receipts date back to 1985 and are said to be complete over the life of the car, showing work performed at Holbert Porsche and other area specialty shops.
Production details and factory equipment are shown on the included Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche North America. Matching engine and transmission stampings are shown in the gallery alongside the original window sticker and owner’s books.
A 2016 AutoCheck report shows an accident-free history and prior owners in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
