Eighties Porsche 911s rising as dreams become reality

Eighties Porsche 911s rising as dreams become reality

It was the poster car for the conspicuous consumption yuppie era, but interest then cooled for Porsche’s 911 Carrera 3.2. For several years values stalled, with the best consistently fetching in the £45-50k range.


But another generation has reached the age where they have funds to indulge teen fantasies and now values are on the move once again. We’ve seen some significant results already this year, like the Guards Red ’85 coupé for which Historics achieved £53,760 in May. It hadn’t been mothballed either – there were 124,486 miles on the clock, though admittedly plenty had been spent on it.

Likewise £49,500 was spent on an 87,000-mile ’85 Targa at CCA in March, and Trade Classics got £51,410 for a similar car with an unwarranted 72,600 on the clock at around the same time. The less popular Cabrio can still be bought more cheaply, but all are rising. And why not? Away from the Wall Street image these were always great cars.
