THE PORSCHE 911 SPEEDSTER

Porsche's first take on a open-top 911 had been the Targa model of 1965, a 'halfway house' design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-liter form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet proved a hit from the moment of its debut at the Geneva Salon in March and by the end of the 1983 model year had sold over 4,000 units, a total some 50% higher than that achieved by the less expensive Targa version. 

Completing the soft-top 911 line-up was the Speedster, which revived a charismatic model from Porsche's past when it arrived in 1989, the name previously having been applied to that most stylish of the many Type 356 variants. The 3.2-liter Speedster was launched immediately prior to the introduction of the new Type 964 bodyshell, and thus was the last 911 model to feature the old style body based on the original design of 1963. Chief stylist Tony Lapine reworked the latter, incorporating numerous references to the original 356 Speedster as well as a pair of controversial 'camel hump' cowlings behind the seats that concealed the stowed-away manual top, a simplified affair described by the factory as for 'temporary' use only. From 1984 Porsche had offered the 'Turbo Look' body style - flared wheel arches, large rear wing and deeper front spoiler - on its normally aspirated models and this option was extended to the Speedster, the vast majority of which were ordered with it. One of the rarest of the 911 family, the Speedster was built during 1989 only, and a mere 2,065 cars were completed.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Speedster is in beautiful original and preserved condition. Completed in June of 1989 and imported to southern California after a tourist delivery this Speedster is believed to have had only three owners and spent the majority of time in the spectacular car climate of California. This wide-body, Turbo-look Speedster was optioned with the desirable black Fuchs wheels, sports seats, shorter gear shift lever, air conditioning, a Blaupunkt 'Charleston' radio, a rear luggage compartment instead of rear seats, and the US market emissions system. By 2000, the red Speedster was sold by Porsche of Newport Beach to what is believed to be the cars second owner, a Mr. Salvi of Orange County, CA, who kept the car until recently. 

As is commonly known, these limited edition 911 Speedsters were finished at Porsche AG as 'worldwide chassis' meaning that many have a different prefix in the stamped VIN as the one the car is identified under. This car was given worldwide chassis number WP0ZZZ91ZKS173142, as stamped on its chassis-tub, but was then assigned the US-market specific VIN of WP0EB0911KS173142 once it was eventually slated for US delivery. The car's Porsche issued Certificate of Authenticity and CARFAX is also based on its ultimate US-market VIN number. 

Offered with its factory Certificate of Authenticity, tool roll, books, original spare, jack, and a clean CARFAX; this Speedster is perfectly embodied, presented here in its original color combination of Guards Red over black leather; this stunning permutation proclaims all the emotions this car was meant to provoke.
