First Crush - '85 911 Carrera Coupe

Recommended Posts

After a lifetime of wishing and a year of researching and scouring the forums, I'm grateful to introduce my new ride: an ‘85 911 Carrera Coupe in Prussian blue with 119k miles purchased from a retired Porsche mechanic. This was the car I fell in love with 30 years ago when I first became aware of sports cars. Grateful for the opportunity to own it. Many projects and country drives ahead! First up... AC! Also needs new rear tires, some bulbs replaced, paint detail, seat electric switch fixed, brake fluid flush... lots of fun stuff!

What a clean example!  Those kids look older than I thought would fit in those back seats.

They wouldn’t be comfortable for a long trip back there, but they actually LOVED a quick blast around town with windows and sunroof open. For reference, they’re 9 (twins) and my daughter (tallest) is 4’10”.
