The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

If any one model of the Porsche 911 comes to mind of the proverbial man-in-the-street, then it is an image of a black Turbo, crouched low on wide wheels, clothed with big wing extensions. The Turbo conjures up fantasies of raw power and elegance, of high automotive technology and style. In 1974, in post-oil-crisis Europe, it was a bold and courageous statement of defiance about the future that delighted the automotive industry and Porsches customers alike.

It was inevitable, following the success of the Porsche Turbo, that in due time Porsche offered an open-top car. Porschephiles celebrated in 1986 with the introduction of the Turbo Cab, as it quickly became known. And, even more worth the wait, 1989 models included the long-rumoured G50 five-speed manual transmission in replacement of the former four-speed used since the 1974 introduction.
While the new transmission made little difference in acceleration, it made the Turbo a much more relaxing car to drive, with shorter gear-shift lever travel, crisper action, and a lighter clutch pedal, thanks to the switch to hydraulics from cable activation.
With just two owners from new, this lovely Turbo cabriolet presents in wonderfully original condition. Worldwide, Porsche built a total of 18,550 911s in 1989, including 2,564 Turbo models. This particular car is one of just 244 Turbo Cabs built for non-U.S. consumption, with another 600 for the U.S. market, making it a truly rare automobile, especially considering its RHD configuration. According to the consignor, it remains as delivered in unrestored and all-original condition. Finished in a striking colour of Diamond Blue Metallic highlighted by black Fuchs rims over a Cashmere Beige interior, this Porsche makes for quite the stunning statement.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
