Most recent at 8,011 milesOriginal handbooks/wallet/older MOTscorroboratethe cars warranted 8,325milesInspired by the iconic 1950s Porsche 356 Speedster's unique low line look, Porsche introduced the Carrera 2-based Speedster as a concept at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was a two-seater based on the J-programme, rubber bumper 911 and designed to relive the no-frills, top-down days of the original 356 Speedster. The new car was intended for friends of open motoring, as Porsche put it, and its roof was stored under a colour-coded polyurethane moulding on the rear deck, behind the driver and passengers heads. The seats were lower than normal, the aluminium-framed windscreen was raked back by five degrees and the side windows were frameless.The Speedster made it into production for one year only, 1989, and was available in two body styles: Turbo Look and standard, with the 935-style 'Slant-Nose' treatment available on either. 2,104 were built in total, primarily forPorsches two core markets,the United States and Germany and onlya handful of right-hand drive cars made it to the UK.Performance from the 231bhp, 3164cc flat-six was well up to Porsches standards with a 0-60mph time of 5.4 seconds and a top speed of over 150mph.Porsche was confident it was now building a powerful, reliable engine for the 911 and,from 1986,was offering a five-year, or 50,000 miles warranty.The Speedster was the last 911 model built on the basic bodyshell of the original, 1963 911 and the final 911 produced at the old Zuffenhausen factory as the 964 that followed was builton an all-new production line.This example is one of those very rareUK right-hand drive cars andhas covered just 8,163 miles from new. Supplied new by AFN Porsche London, itwas first registered on 1st August 1989 and has been enjoyed by threeprevious owners. A full service history is supplied with 15 stamps in the original service book, the most recentof which was carried out in 2014 at 8,011 miles, however, a majorservice was carried out by Geo Morrison Motors in Glasgowin 2013 at a cost of 1,808. Offered with its original handbooks and leather wallet anda large number of previous MOT Certificates which corroboratethe tiny mileage. Evidently, this Speedster has been cherished and stored correctly all of its life. Described by the vendor as being presented in stunning order, this Speedster is finished in the classic1980s colour combination of Guards Red with a Creamleather interior. The bodywork and paint are in superb condition, as one would expect for such a low mileage example, and the interior has been preserved in simply faultless condition.The 1989Speedsters were a faithful successor to the original 356 Speedsters and consequently, prices have been steadily rising in recent years.
