The Porsche 911 Turbo offered here is one of 674 produced for the 1991 model year. It is presented in black over black with just 54,328 original documented miles. The history of this Turbo 911 starts at Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach, Florida where it was purchased on June 3rd, 1991 by a doctor from Savannah, Georgia. The car was then shipped to the owner’s house where it would spend the next 18 years of its existence. During those years it was driven less than 2,500 miles a year; a car reserved for nice cruises along the coast.
Powering this car is the standard six-cylinder turbo engine that is connected to a five-speed manual transmission. This car is also equipped with a left heated seat (139), left seat lumbar support (586), locking differential (220), CD player radio (691), seat cover rear RLL (935), seat cover RAFF-leather (980).
In the fall of 2008, ownership changed for the first time, when the doctor sold it to a friend and fellow physician with 48,052 miles. From 2008 to the winter of 2015 the second owner tallied 6,276 miles on the odometer, which brings the current mileage to 54,328 miles. When the second owner decided to sell the car he sent it to his mechanic to ensure that the car was in excellent working order. During a test drive, the mechanic noticed the clutch starting to slip when the engine built boost. So a new clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing were installed in October of 2015; along with a valve adjustment and fresh oil change.
In 2007 the paint had some touch up work done to fix rock chips and scratches. The documentation shows that the car retains most of its original black paint. During November of 2015 the car underwent a 60-hour exterior paint correction and detail to remove any swirl marks and light scratches. The car has also had an extensive undercarriage cleaning where it was put on a lift and the wheels removed so it could be steamed and degreased.
The 911 comes with its original books, complete toolkit, spare tire, jack, air compressor and the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe
