|Odometer reading||62,000 miles|
|Estimate||£75,000 - £90,000|
|Result||Sold - £82,880|
The Porsche 911/930 Turbo Cabriolet is the only 'normal production' Porsche cabriolet to be equipped with the air-cooled turbo engine. Moreover, only approximately 100 were produced and just 50 righthand drive examples were built. Built with the 3.3 litre air-cooled turbo engine and later G50, five-speed gearbox, the car generates over 330bhp and has a 0-60 time of approximately five seconds.
First registered on 1st August, 1989, this beautifully presented example in black with ivory leather interior has just had a recent service with Porsche UK, Reading including their 111 point vehicle inspection. Porsche Cars have provided written confirmation that this was originally a very well 'spec'd' example. Origionally a Porsche Cars GB Ltd. display car and subsequently sold by AFN Chelsea on the Brompton Road, London SW6, it is supplied with a fantastic history file including documented service history and MoT test certificates to warrant the mileage, this Porsche has been very well cared for. In 2005, a claim was made due to damage to the off-side front wing; however, the current owner sought to have this work independently inspected in accordance with The Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre by AutoLign inspections of Mawsley resulting in the car being removed from the HPI condition alert register. The car is now offered with an MoT test certificate valid for a year. With such few miles covered and presented in truly excellent condition in the finest colour combination, this Porsche surely represents outstanding value in today's market place.
