In 1981, a convertible version of the famous 911 was unveiled to the public in Geneva. At the 1987 Frankfurt Salon, Porsche presented a prototype with a cut-off windscreen and a roll bar. The idea was good as the year after, the Stuttgart firm decided to launch the 911 Speedster, based on a 911 Carrera convertible. The two rear seats were removed and the rear was covered by a body-coloured polyester tonneau cover, the windshield was replaced with a narrower one with a more rakish angle, and side windows were redesigned to lower ones.
This beautiful Speedster, a very limited edition, was delivered new to a Warren B. Eads in Rolling Hills, California on 9 July 1989 and has been maintained by the US Porsche network as can be seen from the maintenance logbook. The car was imported in 2008 by a dealer and the second owner, a Luxembourgian businessman, acquired it to use it in his country house in the French Limousin region. Used very little and leaving the 'comforts' of a garage only in good weather, this Porsche had covered only 23,177 miles (35,000 km) and came in an almost new condition when it was on offer in the auction of 'Automobiles sur les Champs 4' at Artcurial in 2012. It was then acquired by our collector from Sologne. The engine compartment shows a high level of maintenance quality. The black leather seats show no scratches and no traces of wear, as is the case with the soft top too. The car starts immediately and accelerates very smoothly. It will be delivered with all its booklets, the original manuals and the complete tool kit. For French buyers, this Porsche comes with a partial certificate of conformity (lighting, indicators and manufacturer's identification plate). It will be necessary to pass through the DRIRE homologation service in order to register the car in France.
