Those who loved the Porsche 911 Turbo rejoiced in 1986, as the Porsche 911 Turbo was returned to the American market thanks to new updates that put the Turbo in compliance with U.S. emissions and safety regulations of the time. Also during 1986, Porsche added new engine electronics to the Turbo 3.3L engine, which now offered 282 horsepower. The Carrera would continue to be popular despite the reincarnation of the Turbo, and would remain virtually unchanged until a new body style would be released in 1988. Today’s buyers particularly enjoy finding these old Turbo models, which were offered only as a Coupe and with a four-speed manual transmission. Do you have a 1986 Porsche 911 that you’re thinking about selling? Rest assured knowing there is a large market for 911 models in the classic car industry. Buyers are searching for everything from pristine, showroom quality restorations to bodies and rolling chassis that they can restore from the ground up. You’ll also find a wide selection of buyers that are looking for these mid 1980s 911 to use as everyday drivers.
