Vehicle Name Green Carrera
Year 1986
Make Porsche
Model 911 Carrera coupe
Color Moss Green Metallic
Packages factory installed short shift kit
History Inherited from my brother in Sept 2010. He was third owner. He kept it in a locked storage unit with a blue '82 SC and used on alternating weekends. This car had been in Mass from 1986 to 2001, and then in Florida until 2010. The original owner kept good records and didn't skimp on servicing. I have the original order sheet as part of the notebook of records and receipts.
Exterior H4s installed by PO. Moss Green Metallic. Windows out freshening of some of the paint and clear, Dec '10. Left rear bumper strip trim replaced. Hoses to window washers unkinked. Driver's window rail and electric lift repaired. Door sills rust removed, repaired, and repainted by Ayer. Sunroof cabling upgraded to 964 spec.

Interior Aftermarket metal pedal and foot rest kit. Momo wheel. Momo Nero shift knob. New Pioneer CD/USB head unit and older decent Sony speakers. Shift coupler installed. Some bolster wear on the driver's seat. Dash is in super shape.

Performance Upgrades Strut tower brace, unknown manufacturer. Steve Wong chip installed. M&K premuffler and 1-in-1-out installed Jun '11. Chip has improved low speed fuel delivery and driveability, as well as top end push. M&K items are quality, with good sound.

Engine / Under the Hood Fuse box replaced for corrosion wear, done in '11 at EAS in Gardiner. AC removed. Oil consumption is nominal. Garage floor is dry. New air mass flow meter in April '16. Odometer at 164k as of Nov. '16. Serviced regularly by EAS in Gardiner ME. The valves done most recently at 162k. Garage floor is dry. Using Valvoline 20W/50 VR1. Use of Marvel Mystery Oil or Seafoam now and then after a couple of tanks. Shell 93 for gas when available.

Suspension New spring plates, and Elephant Racing stock style bushings. Suspension raised 30mm from the prior low Florida settings to deal with real world back roads with frost heaves. Still lower than American spec, but not what some would call Euro. Spring plates and bushings replaced.

Wheels and Tires Black stock Fuchs, 6s in front and 7s in the back, Dunlop Star Specs for about 12k, then Hankook all seasons since replacing them. Front wheel bearings replaced. Rear brake pads and rotors replaced. Brake lines done. Thinking about 7s and 8s Minilites or Group 4 wheels.
