This Porsche 911 Carrera Ticks all the Boxes for a $100,000 Price

Updated: Mar 11

This low mile 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera ticks all the boxes to deliver a $100,000 price for this G-Series 911. It is currently featured on the PCarMarket web site auction and is bid to $88,000 with one day left in the auction.


During the last hour of an online auction prices traditionally climb dramatically; sometimes doubling in that hour. A 13% or more increase in the price to reach $100,000 and probably exceed that magic number will probably be achieved. A median price for a 1987 Porsche Carrera 3.2 is usually in the $60 - $80,000 range so this one will probably bring a 25% or more price premium.


The Wide Haunches of the Porsche M491 Turbo Look Option

So what are the attributes of this car that drives such a premium price:

  • Low Miles: 36,000 original miles

  • Special order Granite Green Metallic over a Grey-Green Interior

  • Turbo body M491 Wide Body option

  • G-Series 911 Carrera with the G50 transmission

  • Well Optioned with Sport Seats and Limited Slip Differential


The PCarMarket commentators are not as brutal in their analysis as Bring-a-Trailer commentators but the high price draw some spirited discussion on the originality of the paint. The owner admits that it is not all-original paint, but most of the car is original paint. The repainted areas appear to be a good match.


A M491 911 Expert weighed in stating that this is one of 62 M491 coupes imported in 1987. This makes it a very rare Porsche and a very rare Wide Body 911.


The auction ends on Tuesday, March 9 and Air Brigade will be there to see the final what should be winning bid.
