This is a Porsche that we’ve been closely involved with over the last three years, so we know that it has been maintained to a very high standard and wants for nothing.
The Iris Blue bodywork is in very good condition, having benefitted from a full renovation in 2011 with the kidney bowls and inner wings attended to.
The engine and gearbox were rebuilt at 122,000 miles, and have been maintained in peak condition since. The 915 gearbox has a factory short-shifter, and has been fettled to operate exactly as it was designed. The 915 is a misunderstood box; it was designed as a racing transmission; first and second are intended to get you to third, not to 100mph. Treat them well, fill them with the right oil (this has Motul Motyl Gear 75W-90) and you will be rewarded with an involving drive.
The Porsche has a Steve Wong chip fitted to the ECU, which overcomes the often bemoaned lazy feel of a 3.2 compared to the SC, bringing the power-band down the rev range. This makes for an extremely quick and nimble car.
Other recent work includes new heat exchangers and manifold studs, new clutch, new fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator, new stainless steel exhaust, new idle control valve, new spark plugs, ignition leads and injectors, new window and electric mirror loom and switches, new fresh air blower and ducts, new main headlamp switch, new heat exchange flaps and centre console heater control.
The car has also recently had new brakes discs and calipers, wheel bearings, and Toyo Proxes tyres all round.
The interior is finished in blue pinstripe fabric and has been treated to a Blaupunkt six-speaker radio and CD player with Bluetooth connectivity, at a cost of over £500.
This is one of the best-sorted Carrera 3.2s we’ve seen, with bills from the last three years totalling £14,000.
