Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 bicolore de 1984 – Une personnalisation unique

Porsche a toujours personnalisé ses modèles, en fonction des demandes plus ou moins folles de ses clients.

You Just Got Your First Big Bonus. Porsche or Ferrari. Which Would You Choose?

It is 1986… You just made your first big score in the boardroom and got a nice bonus you can’t wait to spend. You stand on a corner – Porsche dealership to the left and a Ferrari dealership to the right. Which one would you choose?

Porsche Carrera 3.2 vs. Ferrari 308

Both the Porsche 3.2 Carrera and Ferrari 308 are iconic cars. They are also very different cars. With the Porsche, you get solid engineering, great power, a fantastic sound and a look you can’t forget after an engaging drive. With the Ferrari, you get solid engineering, high revving power, a fantastic sound, great looks – hey, wait a minute… Are they the same or different? Both cars are great at what they were built for, but they were designed for very different driving. It is where they are different that makes this comparison so interesting, and you might be surprised to find out what they are each good at.

In the video above, I go through the biggest differences in the design, layout, engines, and cabin comfort before taking both the Ferrari and the Porsche out for a nice drive to talk about where each car shines. Check it out!

Sales Debate: Can the 996 Carrera follow in the 3.2 Carrera’s track?

We’ve caught RPM Technik’s sales director, Greig Daly, reminiscing: “I remember being sat at a table five years ago and one of my partners said, ‘3.2s will never go up.’” The tide has well and truly turned though, with RPM currently selling a 3.2 for close to £50,000.

That exact car was last in the specialist’s showroom in 2012 when Daly sold it for £25,000. Despite being built in significant numbers, an abundance of 3.2 Carreras hasn’t dented its investment potential. So could the equally popular 996 Carrera eventually hit similar heights?

What once seemed far-fetched now doesn’t seem so crazy according to Daly and Autofarm co-owner, Mikey Wastie. “Ultimately, I think there are 996 Carreras that could reach £50,000, but that would probably be for a special car,” the latter explains. “I think we are some way from a £50k Carrera unless it has history or a prominent owner,” the Autofarm proprietor continues.

On top of a general reappraisal of the 996 Carrera, Daly feels the upturn in the early water-cooled market is being driven by rising values at the top end. “The RSs are leading the way and, as they continue to go up, it makes a humble 3.4 or 3.6 look astonishingly good value.”

That’s why, in Daly’s mind, good Carreras have gone from £7,000-£10,000 to £12,000-£20,000. “Between £25,000-£30,000, you used to be able to get a Turbo. Now the game has moved on and people are looking for what else they can get for around £20k,” Daly continues. “Porsche isn’t making any more of these old cars so everyone is thinking, ‘If I can get a low mileage 996 C2, I might just stick it away.’”

The Carreras most likely to hit the £50k mark are, according to Wastie, those with “low mileage, in excellent condition and with great provenance.” In the Autofarm expert’s opinion, he’d bet on “an original spec, manual Coupe in a subtle colour”, if he were looking for a 996 Carrera with investment potential (although his main advice is to “enjoy it”).

Daly points out though that despite the huge number of 996s built, those desirable “driver’s spec” Carreras are actually in shorter supply than most imagine, with only 20 or so on the market at any one time. The problem is, ironically, exacerbated by “the IMS issue that has seen some more leggy cars broken,” explains Wastie.

Price rises in the market have slowed down recently, meaning both Daly and Wastie expect that 996 values won’t inflate at anything near the same rate as the 3.2 Carrera did. However, with Daly recently spotting the first “£40,000 996 C4S for sale”, maybe we’re closer than we think to the first £50k 996 Carrera…
