‘Condition matters more than spec, and the market for good, well-maintained examples is still strong’

As we reported in July’s 911 feature, values of the Porsche 993 have well and truly taken off, but if you grew up in the ’80s, chances are that your notion of a ‘proper’ 911 will be the 1974-’1989 impact-bumper model.
A trawl of the internet will turn up plenty of well-used examples starting at around £30k, and even a few for just over the £20k mark, but at those prices we advise caution. “Values took off from 2013-’14,” says specialist Paul Stephens (www. paul-stephens.com), “but scruffy to average cars are due a correction. Condition matters more than spec, and the market for good, wellmaintained examples is strong.
Those are now £40-60k, with the best 3.2s making £100k, and rarer versions fetching even more.” These Porsches are durable, as evidenced by the superb 88,000- mile 1984 targa that Stephens is currently offering, but be diligent. “Spend £250 on an expert inspection,” he recommends. “Although galvanised, they can still hide rust – particularly targas. Also, in spite of a reputation for being bulletproof, some will need engine work.
It’s down to the type of use, with late-’80s examples, in particular, being prone to top-end trouble.” Of course, if you want the 911 experience without the spectre of corrosion, accident damage and mechanical maladies, there is still the option of buying new, but London-based Hexagon Classics (https://hexagonclassics.com) has a tempting alternative. Its left-handdrive 4428-mile ’1985 Carrera must be one of the lowest-mileage 3.2 coupés remaining. At £84,995, the price is on a par with an entry-spec, six-month-old example, which in a sense is what it is – but without the electronic driver aids. If that’s too commonplace, the firm also has a 1989 3.2 Speedster. One of only 65 UK-market cars, it’s covered just 1180 miles and is yours for £220k.Stream item published successfully.
