OVERVIEW

Highly rare and visually stunning with special-order Silver Metallic factory paint finish, as-new black top and Silk Gray interior with black piping. Very well-optioned and clearly benefiting from fastidious care, maintenance, and proper storage from new. Exceptional appearance and running order throughout and a joy to drive as intended. A key race-bred sports car for any serious collection in all respects.

SPECIFICATIONS

M93/68 air-cooled, 3,299 cc turbocharged and intercooled SOHC flat-6 engine, Bosch Motronic engine management and LE-Jetronic fuel injection, 282 hp (SAE Net), four-wheel independent suspension, G50/50 five-speed manual gearbox in rear transaxle, hydraulic ventilated and cross-drilled four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 89.4".

The big news for the final 1989 models came with a switch from the prior four-speed gearbox to the smooth-shifting G50/50 (950) five-speed unit, including revised ratios to fully exploit the Turbo's power curve. In addition to their stunning performance and final-year status, these 1989 Turbos are also among the last cars built at Porsche’s old Stuttgart works, with each one virtually hand-built.

HISTORY

Verified by its corresponding Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this stunning, final-year 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet is one of just 600 produced for North American export prior to the advent of the 964-based Turbo. It was completed on November 04, 1988 and finished in rare special-order Silver Metallic (Code S7) paint, handsomely complemented by a black top and Silk Grey leather (Code QM) upholstery. Desirable options included a short-throw gear shift lever, limited-slip differential, tonneau cover, Blaupunkt 'Reno' radio, amplifier system, U.S.-standard emissions equipment, and the high-dollar cellular-phone preparation package.

CONDITION

As offered, this accident-free, unmodified, and non-abused Turbo Cabriolet retains its factory-applied paint finish, with depth-gauge readings consistent with Porsche factory specifications. The striking interior and upholstery remain pristine, and the legendary turbocharged, intercooled 'flat six' powerplant starts on command and performs exceptionally well. In keeping with the entirety of this wonderfully original and well-preserved Turbo, the engine bay and engine are honestly presented, maintaining a proper factory-correct appearance. The body and undersurface of the car remain completely corrosion-free and even the factory-applied cosmolene sealant is still present. A clear bra has been applied to the front half of the hood and lower front fenders. There are only a couple very small (one-millimeter or less) stone chips that won't show up in a picture.

Maintenance under the present owner has been fastidious and exacting to say the least, with the vehicle serviced annually by marque specialists. The most recent oil change and service included replacement of the cam-chain cover seals with NOS items in April, 2016. In addition, the hydraulic cartridges for the luggage-compartment and engine-cover lids were replaced, and a brand new set of factory-correct Michelin tires were fitted and balanced. The driving experience is electrifying, with outstanding performance, turbo boost, smooth clutch and shifting action, and an overall feeling of integrity and originality that simply cannot be duplicated. The mechanical condition of the car is excellent. All systems work appropriately and have been fully tested for perfect function.


SUMMARY

This stellar 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet will surely provide an ideal and welcome entry at any worthy show or concourse event you should choose to attend. Upon close inspection, it is clear that this Turbo has enjoyed meticulous care and ownership throughout its life and with only a little over 26,700 miles at the time this sale, it is lightly used and virtually factory-fresh. For astute Porsche collectors seeking an honest, highly original, and top-notch, "no stories" 911 Turbo from the historic final production year and in the first-generation car’s best form, this very fine example ticks every box.

This car is in the collection of the owner of STS Classics, a licensed California classic car dealership. It will be sold through the dealership to the new owner.
