Our Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Supersport from 1989
Hippo Prestige has a rare treat in our showroom. Porsche 911s have been in production since 1963 and we have a classic from 1989. A Guard Red Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Supersport. This car is almost thirty years old, making it one of the more gorgeous classic cars available on the market today.
The one in our showroom has only travelled 33,000 miles and has a full-service history supplied so you can be sure that this car has been kept in top condition. But now let’s get down to what makes this car such an amazing rarity.
Under that red bonnet
Porsche has a fascinating design that keeps the engine at the rear of the car rather than at the front or being a mid-engine model. Our Cabriolet comes with a six-cylinder 3.2-litre engine producing 231 bhp. This may not seem like a lot for a Porsche, but back in 1989 this was incredible work. It sprinted from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 152 mph.
All incredible for a classic car, but that isn’t what made the Supersport different from the other 911 3.2 Carrera cars on the market.
The Turbo Look body kit
The 3.2 Carrera Supersport was nicknamed the Turbo Look because of the body kit designed for it by Porsche. When the 3.2 Carrera Supersport was launched in 1984, these following changes were made to the exterior design:
- A wider turbo look body
- Turbo whale tail
- Turbo wrap-around chin spoiler
- Turbo suspension
- Turbo brakes with four-piston aluminium callipers and 285mm cross-drilled discs
- Custom wheels and tyres
- Weight increase
- Noticeably improved handling
Driving the Supersport
This car is still a truly awe-inspiring car to drive after almost thirty years. The pairing of the 3.2-litre petrol engine and a manual gearbox puts you right at the centre of the experience. You choose how much acceleration you wish to put down. Whatever choice you make when driving is down to you.
This makes you an organic part of the driving experience, which you no longer feel when you drive modern cars because of all the electronic technology now included to help with the driving. With this car, you won’t have all that pesky tech. It will just be you and the car as one. That is an experience that cannot be missed out on.
The even greater aspect of this car is that it is a cabriolet. You can put the roof down and truly enjoy a gorgeous summer drive. The wind flows around you as you zip along the road in this car.
