I recall that most of that info has been posted previously on this forum and even a photo of a 1988 price list.  I think there is a copy of a Wheel's magazine test somewhere too that shows the list prices for 1984. 

Sorry I can't post a link so you'll need to do some forum searches.

EDIT: Found the 1984 test but Photobucket has fucked it!

Looked at original March 1984 article that I have and they stated $61,493.

A similar May '86 test showed the effect of the plunging dollar:

1/11/86 - $79,723

1/2/86 - $83,727

5/4/86 - $92,723

Oh the good old days of the almost Banana Republic and 18% interest rates....

Sounds cheap, BUT...

In 1983 I paid $57k for my 3 bedroom house in Nunawading (Melbourne) because I couldn't afford $85K for a really nice house ( needing some repair) in Glen Iris....

I think the Melbourne property has outstripped the Porsche market by some degree!!

Don't know the numbers for the targa's and the convertibles didn't exist ...

Thanks Brian, didn't know you could still access the photos via the poster's Photobucket album.

So they're not complete bastards....just 99%

The colour is one spec I have not seen any information on for the G series 911, would be interesting if there were years available.

One would expect all these details are on record somewhere at head offices, yet no one has drilled down into these finer details, we just get numbers per Country per year -_-

I can't remember where I got the information but I know that mine was 1 of 2 delivered here in my colour ... and I know the states they were delivered in.

Gotta be out there somewhere ..

Thanks for the info. I just purchased a 1984 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet Australia delivered (NSW) and like all the statistics one of 1735 euro spec built and one of 43 sent to Australia sounds good to me.👍

I wanted a coupe for 10+ years but we can only have what we can afford and got a cabriolet instead.

i thought it would be noisy and rattle, but It is very quiet with no rattles at all. Amazing  for a 35 year old car.

It has back seat lower pads but it is a 2 seater on the compliance plate?

Does anyone know if the 2 seaters come with no seat pads/seatbelts etc??

was Ruby Red/Black interior now Montego black/Grey interior.

Just a quick question why are Porsche Australia records different than these numbers ? They only have 6 sales records for 84 cabriolets listed.

I should have kept it🙂

I'm glad you didn't. Just had a week down in Tassie - drove ~2500km of the best twisty roads and it worked flawlessly! Very happy custodian and have no plans of moving it on.

More than happy that it ended up in a good home and is being used as intended! - Great car

I did keep mine, 1984 guards red and the first Carrera delivered in Johannesburg. Still have it, and it still makes me smile.  I paid around R70k at the time that there was reasonable parity between our A$ and the SA Rand.  I think.

I don't drive it enough, although I did drive it yesterday and yes, it made me smile and think "Why don't I get this out of the shed more often?"

It is a bit of a wake up call when one buys a car brand new out of the box and owns it long enough that you can put historic plates on it.

Fantastic Syd R - I remember following you on the great open road escape rally - I can still close my eyes and remember the sound as you wound it out..... the zuffenhausen, via Johannesburg symphony.
