A 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3. 2 G-50 Sunroof Coupe. now for auction on eBay! Last Year Gem: 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3. 2 G-50 Sunroof Coupe! Porsche experts agree: the 1987-89 Carrera is the best 911 ever built. Why? It's simple. really. It is the last 911 to feature a body style now considered "classic" and the first to incorporate technological advancements such as the vaunted GETRAG G-50 transmission.
