It is said the original owner sold this car to a German specialty car dealership in Tucson, Arizona where it was acquired by the father of the current seller in 1994. The seller got the car from his father in 2011 and has put 15,400 of the 132,000 miles on the odometer, which is slightly inaccurate, thanks to the odometer breaking in November of 2021. The odometer was fixed, but during that time about 200 miles were added to the Cabriolet. Living its life in Arizona and California, the seller states there is zero rust but admits there are some flaws and blemishes in the paint as well as the factory leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. This cabriolet is identified as being very original by the owner with its original engine and transmission, mostly original paint, original interior, and only some aftermarket upgrades such as remote CD player, car phone, and wheels to personalize and enhance the car.
Porsche introduced the 911 Cabriolet in 1983 on the 911SC, a one-year only offering, with 1984 seeing the SC replaced with the Carrera. Simply building on the stiffer structure provided by the Targa, the Cabriolet proved to be a major step for Porsche, whose customer base largely preferred Coupes over open-top cars. Interestingly, a number of people who might have bought Mercedes-Benz SLs became 911 Cabriolet customers. It proved to be a great crossover car, bringing customers who very possibly never would have even looked at a Porsche to look at Porsche. This one has been through three careful owners and appears to be strikingly original.
