Slicktop G-body Carreras (1974-1989) are rare as a sharknado, so finding two in a week is somewhere around the odds of a sharkicane.
But I digress.
This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera slicktop is a ROW (“rest of world” – subtle German recognition of US market dominance re the 911) example that was recently imported from Japan. The ROW cars had more power, limited slip differential, lower ride height, and a special aero package, so this is a special car. What makes it super special is the fact that it’s a slicktop!
Finished in beautiful Marine Blue over black leather interior, this Carrera has only 55,000 miles on the clock and looks super fresh.
This car is being auctioned on Bring-a-Trailer, and bidding has reached $38,000. As a ROW car, it apparently can’t be registered in California, so the rest of the country has a decent shot at a stunning and special Porsche. Act fast because the auction ends today!
