In case you’ve missed all the celebratory magazine articles and tribute videos marking the occasion, this year marks the Porsche 911’s golden anniversary. And while not the best performing or, arguably, best looking evolution in history, the 1984-’89 3.2 Carrera (often referred to by Porschephiles as the G-model) was one of the most popular and recognizable 911s. It helped affirm to the world that the 911 was here to stay and not, in fact, being retired in favor of the controversial front-engine, water-cooled 924S/944/928 troika.
However, even though it played a pivotal role in the evolution of the 911 bloodline, modifying a G-model doesn’t seem to be quite as frowned upon as modifying the earlier small-bumper, pre-smog 911s. Thus we don’t expect there to be much (Any?) backlash from fundamentalist Porschephiles when they gaze upon this custom 1986 911 from DP Motorsport.
