Porsche 911 (1984 - 1989)
With an assured future ahead for the Porsche 911 series, 1983 saw the launch of a replacement for the successful SC series. It was the 1984 model year 911 3.2 Carrera, the rebirth of the Carrera name for the first time since 1975. The 911 3.2 Carrera was the last iteration in the original 911 series, all subsequent models had new body styling with new brakes, electronic and suspension techniques. A higher-placed engine with a 3.2-litre horizontally opposed flat-six cylinder was used. The new volume of 3164cc was achieved using the 95mm bore (from the previous SC model) in combination with the 1978 Turbo 3.3 crankshaft 74.4mm stroke. The 915 transmission was carried over from the SC series for the first 3 model years. A new intake manifold and exhaust system were introduced. In 1987 the Carrera got a new 5-speed gearbox from Getrag, model number G50. This slightly heavier version featured a hydraulically operated clutch.
Engine power was increased to 207bhp at 5900rpm for US-supplied cars and 231bhp at 5900rpm for most other markets. This version of the 911 accelerates from 0 to 97 km/h in 5.4 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h. The disc brakes were enlarged and improved, oil-fed chain tensioners were mounted on the engine. Engine running and reliability was improved with an upgrade of the fuel and ignition control components to an L-Jetronic with a Bosch Motronics 2 Digital Engine Electronics system.
Three base models were available throughout the Carrera year; the coupe, targa and convertible. Very modest cosmetic changes have been made throughout the Carrera's lifespan, with a redesigned dashboard with larger air-conditioning ducts appearing in 1986. The 1987 Carrera Club Sport (340 produced) is a collectible 911 that featured a blueprinted engine with a higher rev limit. The electric windows, electric seats and radio were removed to save 50kg in weight. The 911 Speedster, a low-roof version of the Cabriolet, was produced in limited numbers between January 1989 and July 1989 as both a narrow bodied car and a Turbo look car. In the autumn of 1989, the 911 underwent a major evolution, with the introduction of the Porsche 964.
