Lot 56 - 1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Cabriolet
|Odometer reading||39,750 miles|
|Estimate||£30,000 - £40,000|
The Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Cabriolet is one of the rarest Porsche models available today, with a mere 100 examples ever manufactured. Moreover it is the only ""normal production"" Porsche cabriolet to be equipped with the air-cooled turbo engine.
Purchased new in 1989 from Hatfield official Porsche Centre for a price believed to be in excess of £100,000, this car is described by the vendor as in highly original and immaculate condition, reporting: ""it is clear to see that the car has never seen rain or even the hint of cold weather, spending most of its time covered up in a heated garage.""
Built with the 3.3 litre air-cooled turbo engine and later G50 5-speed gearbox, the car generates over 330 bhp and has a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds. Options include: navy leather piped in contrasting silver, original Fuchs 16"" light alloy wheels, locking differential, shorter gear shift lever, electric soft-top, full soft leather, air conditioning and full electric adjustable front seats with heat and lumbar support.
Complete with original keys, as well as all the original books with full Porsche service history, tools, and tyre inflator, this stunning example epitomises the 1980s to perfection and is undoubtedly a sound investment opportunity, having covered a mere 39,000 miles from new.
