The total invoices add up to in excess of 180,000 in total spend and the car has covered very few Km since then.The car was finished to such a high standard, both mechanically and cosmetically, that it was used by Gantspeed to promote their business for several years and was their car of choice in all their national advertising for many years after the work was completed.On completion, the car was sent to Porsche GB to check for originality of all parts and a full inspection. A copy of this correspondence is in the history file.Our vendor has used it occasionally but most of the time it sits in his bespoke luxury garage amid several other amazing 911s, being correctly stored and used only when the sun shines.Like all his cars though, it has been professionally maintained and annually serviced.This original matching numbers car is offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and one of the most comprehensive history files we have ever seen.The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot that we did, in fact, offer this car earlier this year.
