Originally supplied by Waldron Motors Ltd in Kent, it passed through a number of owners before arriving with Porsche-enthusiast, Mr. John Keeling of Colwyn Bay in 2004 and registering 81,699 miles on the clock. He owned the car for 17 years and was extremely fastidious with maintenance before selling it on in 2021. This classic Guards Red example with contrasting black leather sports seats, black dashboard and steering wheel was originally specified with 16” Fuchs alloy wheels, a limited slip differential, power steering, central locking and the highly desirable, five-speed, G50 gearbox. Internally, it also benefits from an electrically operated sunroof, a rear window wiper, electric mirrors and electric windows.
2015 saw a full photographic brake system refurbishment with the anti-roll bar refurbished, drive shafts all restored or replaced at 99,639 miles. With an MoT test certificate valid until July 2023 and no oil leaks noted anywhere at all, according to the Porsche engineer, it forms part of the extremely comprehensive history file for this car including a fully stamped service book, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, invoices and all works completed and an original owner’s pack. This represents a pristine and unmolested example with unmarked coachwork and an interior commensurate with careful ownership and very light use, one of the cleanest examples we have seen for many years and something of a rarity in this condition.
