Recently, there are more and more modified cars on the market, especially modifications of the legendary 911, and one of them was recently sold at auction for $60,000. It is a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet finished in silver with a green exterior wrap.
The car is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-6 engine with 780 hp (574 kW). Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via the “G50” 5-speed manual transmission. As a reminder, the original model was powered by a 3.1L N/A flat-six engine with 228 hp (170 kW) and 209 lb-ft (284 Nm) of torque. The increase in power is achieved thanks to the Turbonetics T3 “Stage 3” twin-turbocharger kit. It is mounted on 18-inch HRE wheels.
The modified 911 Carrera Cabriolet is equipped with a steel wide-body kit, RUF emblem on the hood and decklid, aftermarket front and rear bumpers and headlights, soft top from a 1997 911, “Whale tail”, adjustable coilovers, Brembo brakes with yellow brake calipers, aluminum intercooler, Fuel Air Spark Technology twin-plug fuel injection system, Blitz tuning system and Tilton Engineering carbon clutch kit.
Inside, the front sports seats from a 996-generation 911 are upholstered in red leather with green wrap on the seatbacks. Red leather covers the rest of the interior as well. In front of the driver there is an aftermarket steering wheel and a boost gauge in the instrument cluster. There are also bright accelerator and brake pedal caps, aftermarket center console, aftermarket shift knob and rear-view camera.
The seller reported scratches and “paint repairs” under the wrap. Carfax’s history report begins in 1999 and has had no accidents since then, although it does contain a few gaps. It also shows that this Porsche was owned in California and Florida from 1999 to 2020.
