1987 Porsche Carrera

Story and History

1987 Porsche Carrera 3.2 Sport - rebuilt

A most unusual Carerra, the initial Porsche in the Harrison Collection, which culminated in a total of 14 Porsche vehicles, ranging from a 1951 pre A 356, through 550 RS Spyder, 904 GTS, 906 Carrera 6, 2.7 RS, 934 to 933 GT2 and a specially commissioned RUF Turbo coupe

Mr Harrison used all of his cars, entering Le Mans, Tour Auto, Paris - Peking, Spa 6 hours etc and the 911 here was always a part of his "Equip"

He even took Magnus (his name for this trusty steed) from home in Monaco, via skiing in Lech, to Tromso in Norway to witness the Northern Lights - all is revealed in his book covering all of the Porsche's and the boats, bikes and helicopter too

Until we sold this last year this was the last of the main body of the collection left, fitting as it was a major part of same, and also the inspiration too

As can be understood, the owner of this car was not short of a few bob, and as this car held a special place for him, looked after it without consideration to costs

Owned by him for the previous 12 years, within the comprehensive history folder will be found bills for an amount of around �60.000, from renowned Porsche specialists, Gant Speed Engineering, which cover the following:-

Bare metal repaint

Engine rebuild

Gearbox ( G50 ) rebuild

Suspension rebuild

Sports exhaust system

Refurbished Fuchs alloy wheels

Complete re-trim to include hide to all surfaces (fascia, door cards, instrument binnacle, rear parcel shelf, headlining)

New carpets to cockpit and front boot area

Upgraded stereo and speakers

Gant Speed also gave her an engine out service and new clutch ( �5.500 ) just before delivery to the last owner, so that this Carerra 3.2 looked, performed and handled as well as any other you may find - and still does

In reality he wanted this car to represent the best that a 3.2 Carrera could provide, an ability to cover major journeys without hiccup, and at great speed, whilst looking completely stock

To put it succinctly he succeeded

Our last lucky owner used her in similar circumstances, amongst many journeys the stand out being a trip from his home south of London down to Bordeaux and back again

Since our re-acquisition we have not been able to resist the temptation to use her too - journeys to West Oxford, Canterbury and Aylesbury within a space of 4 days exemplifying the superb comfort and ground covering capabilities of this special Porsche

She remains, as she always has been, fully prepared and now ready for the next lucky recipient
