About the 1984 Porsche Carrera

Covering model years 1984-1989, the new 911 Carrera was fundamentally the same car Porsche had been producing since 1964. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say brand enthusiasts were of the few people who could tell the difference between a 1974 model — when impact bumpers were introduced — and one of the new Carreras.

Thanks to Porsche’s philosophy of 1984 Porsche Carrera’s gradual improvement over time, the old rear-engined design still had life left in it, and improvements underneath the skin made it a much better car to drive. The automotive press praised the Carrera and is still considered one of the best-performing sports cars.

1984 911 | Miles Through Time

The biggest news for the 1984 Carrera was an updated flat six, which was similar to the one in the SC yet still 80% new, according to Porsche. Displacement increased from 3.0 to 3.2 liters by using the 3.3-liter 911 Turbo’s crankshaft for a longer stroke, and the CIS fuel injection system was replaced with a Bosch electronic control unit similar to what was found in the 944.

In the North American market, the 3.2-liter flat six produced 207 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque using regular unleaded fuel. Weighing in at roughly 2,800 pounds, it was good for a 0-60 miles per hour time of 6.2 seconds, according to Road & Track (February 1984).
