Sold new in Germany.

Painted in "Opaque Silver" over black interiors. Its original color scheme was Signal Red over black.
Accompanied by a Porsche Classics certificate.
Since 2013 with its present owner who, shortly after buying it, commissioned a total restoration of the bodywork and mechanics, which included a full overhaul of the engine and replacement of the rods and pistons. The mechanical part of the work alone cost 12,000 euros (invoice available). The car has since been well preserved.
Featured in the January 2004 issue of the magazine Automobilismo.
Completely overhauled engine.
The bumpers are currently not mounted, but they are available and included in the lot with the car.
A really interesting model, offering a fun and pleasurable driving experience thanks to the powerful engine and 4-disc brakes. Extremely sporty looking, this is a 2+2 open car, making it ideal for enjoying sunny days out in the company of others.
