Classic Car Overview

Estimate:
$150,000 - $200,000

  • Single ownership from new; offered with less than 5,100 miles
  • Special-ordered through Special Wishes with several unique features
  • Finished in unique paint-to-sample Ruby Red over Sandstone
  • Presented in remarkably original and unrestored condition
  • One of just 823 US-specification Speedsters for 1989


In 1989, just prior to the release of the 964 generation of the 911, Porsche revived the legendary Speedster model, a name previously reserved for the purest and sportiest 356 variants. The 3.2-liter Speedster featured design elements that harkened back to the elegant and sleek design of its ancestor. The latter was reworked by chief designer Tony Lapine featuring numerous design cues, such as the camel hump cowlings behind the seats which concealed the manual top. In keeping with the original essence of the Speedster, Porsche described the top as being for temporary use only. When it was all said and done, a mere 2,065 Speedsters were built for 1989, only 823 of which were destined for the United States.

This highly original, one-owner Speedster was delivered to its faithful recipient via European delivery. A Porsche dealer himself, the owner sought to specify a truly unique Speedster, ensuring that the custom features would only be seen on this car and this car alone. The Speedster was ordered in striking paint-to-sample Ruby Red over a unique interior that was lovingly dressed in leather-to-sample Silk Grey with burgundy piping and matching grey carpeting. All this was provided by the Special Wishes department at Porsche, a luxury reserved for the companys most dedicated clients. The consignor notes that the dash required special approval from Porsche due to the possible reflection from the specified color. Most notably, the interior also features a unique custom center console, incorporating the Blaupunkt stereo system, inside and outside temperature gauges, and voltmeter, as built by the factory.

Offered with less than 5,100 miles since new and wearing its original Tourist Delivery license plate, this Speedster would be a supreme candidate for PCA events, rallies, and concours, where it will certainly be the only Speedster like it.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
