1988 Porsche 911 Carrera

The second-generation 911 - the G-Series - externally differed from its predecessors in appearance. Ten years after the premiere of the 911, the engineers at Porsche gave the 911 its first thorough makeover. The G model series was produced from 1973 to 1989, longer than any other 911 generation. It featured prominent bellows bumpers, an innovation designed to meet the crash test standards in the United States. Other noticeable changes are its rear fender flares and optional front and rear spoilers. Starting in late 1982, fresh air enthusiasts could also order the 911 as a Cabriolet for the first time.
