1984-1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Pictures and Specifications

The Porsche 911 lineup entered 1985 with coupe, cabriolet, and Targa body styles, all renamed Carrera. There were few other changes, but the previous year had seen a displacement increase from 3.0 to 3.2 liters, which brought more torque that made for even greater low-speed tractability.
