1989 911 Carrera Speedster


The 3.2 Carrera Speedster

The very first unveiled 911 Speedster at the Frankfurt show in 1987 caused somewhat of a shock-and-awe sensation throughout the Porsche community. At the unveiling Porsche engineers demonstrated the mounting of the tonneau which transformed the car into a single-seater 'Clubsport' model. This 'Clubsport' feature was not kept once production began but some Clubsport Speedsters still exist today.

In late 1988 the Speedster began being demonstrated to Porsche importers. Although it was initially standard to have the Speedster in a Turbo-look fashion, some importers requested a narrow-bodied Speedster which led to the introduction of narrow-bodied Speedsters in early 1989. Only a sparing 2,104 3.2 Carrera Speedsters were produced during the first half of 1989, the large majority of them being Turbo-look. Also optional, albeit very rare, was a flat or slant nose.

Two owner car and example number 118 of only 823 USA/CDN 911 Carrera Speedsters. On top of this, it is believed to be one of only two or four total models with paint code L347 K5: Dark Blue. A stunning 6,500 miles read on the car's odometer. Immaculate interior, clean engine/transmission, complete tool-kit and literature give an idea of how lightly this Speedster has been used.
