The Porsche 911 is a luxury two-door sports coupé with a distinctive design, rear engine and independent rear suspension; an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. It has undergone continuous development although the basic concept has remained little changed. Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of automotive competition and is among the most successful competition cars ever. In the mid-1970s, normally aspirated 911 Carrera RSRs won major world championship sports car races such as Targa Florio, Daytona, Sebring and Nürburgring, even against prototypes. The 911-derived 935 Turbo also won the coveted 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979. In the 1999 international poll for the award of Car of the Century, the 911 came fifth. It is one of two in the top five that had remained continuously in production (the original Beetle remained in production until 2003) and was until 1998, the most successful surviving application of the air cooled, horizontally opposed rear-engine layout.
This fabulous looking Porsche has been an exceptionally well cared for example having had one owner from its original registration date of 1st August 1989 until 8th November 1996 and only one owner since then. Finished in metallic grey with black leather interior and a black hood, this low mileage example is in the condition commensurate with such a low mileage car. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 18th November 2021 and a history folder. Enjoy the rest of the summer in this open top classic.
