The T3 B32 is a Porsche which hides under the “disguise” of a Volkswagen Transporter and which is considered very rare.
The history of this van began in 1985, when Porsche engineers needed a quick way to transport spare parts for the 959 rally model during the Paris Dakar rally.
The slow Volkswagen T3 was not considered as it could not keep up with the fast pace of the rally, which is why Porsche decided to make modifications.
The most important change was the installation of a 6-cylinder engine borrowed from the Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera, which developed 228 hp and reached a top speed of 185 km/h.
Power was sent to the rear axle via a Porsche gearbox, and a new suspension and more powerful brakes completed the mechanical improvements.
Visually, the B32 was recognizable by a set of 16-inch Fuch wheels, additional side vents for engine cooling, a larger exhaust pipe, a leather-wrapped interior, a Porsche logo on the steering wheel, additional dials at the bottom of the console. center and other details.
Only seven examples of the Volkswagen T3 B32 model are believed to have been produced at the Porsche workshop in Welcherath, and one is being sold by the Porsche Classic Center Gelderland in the Netherlands.
It is a copy specially made for Peter W Schutz, who was the director of Porsche at the time, that's why its value is higher compared to the remaining six.
According to information about the van, it has a Porsche serial number and is classified as a Porsche vehicle in German documentation.
The price of the rare vehicle is 364,900 euros.
