One-owner low-mileage Porsche 911 Speedster for sale
A factory-built right-hand drive Porsche 911 Speedster is going under the hammer. The car, which is one of 139 made, is part of Silverstone Auctions’ sale on 13 May.
The 911 Speedster was first produced in 1989 by Porsche to celebrate the timeless design of its original 356 Speedster from the late 1950s. Design cues included the raked aluminium windscreen, three inches lower than the standard car, combined with the 'double hump' clamshell fibreglass tonneau cover.
The model was based upon the 3.2 Carrera with its later G50 gearbox, 911 Turbo wide body and chassis and upgraded Turbo-spec brakes and suspension.
This particular example was delivered in July 1989 by Porsche Cars Australia to Victor Berk of New South Wales, who is its one and only private registered keeper from new. It was factory fitted from new with the 'Super Sport' equipment option, alarm system, with the luggage compartment trimmed in black velour.
The history file includes everything from the original dealer order form, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (GB), an introduction letter from Porsche Australia to Mr. Berk, every inspection report (Australian MoT) carried out by the supplying dealer in New South Wales from new until June 2014, the original Porsche leather wallet and book pack with spare keys, and even the demonstration cassette for the Blaupunkt audio system.
A ‘triple black’ car, it remains today in its original specification of black (colour code A1V9) with black leather upholstery and a black hood.
In June 2014, Porsche Centre Sydney carried out a full dealer inspection report, including a compression test and full service, prior to the car's export to the UK. Today it has covered a warranted 8998kms, which is 5590 miles from new. The service book shows 21 main dealer services from new carried out on time, irrespective of mileage covered.
It is now offered for public auction for the first time in its life, and could fetch between £145,000 and £165,000.
