The Porsche 911 is perhaps the most timeless design ever seen in motoring history. The car dominated its class as soon as it was launched in September 1963. Today, albeit very much more developed, it continues to attract adulation from enthusiasts and the motoring press alike.

As production of the 911 was drawing to a close to make way for the new 964 model, Porsche announced the introduction of the 911 Speedster, a limited production car, emulating the classic lines of the original Speedster of the early 1950's. Unveiled at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show the car went into production in 1988. Available with both a narrow Carrera style body or the imposing wider Turbo style bodywork and running gear, it became available for sale in the UK towards the end of 1988.

Based on the existing Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 litre with its 231 bhp flat six-cylinder air-cooled engine, the Speedster offered the customer unrivalled open-top driving pleasure. Compared to the 911 Carrera Cabriolet, the two-seater 911 Speedster was some 70 kilograms lighter and had a folding canvas hood which disappears behind a cover when open. The lower windscreen, in its slender aluminium frame, lies five degrees flatter than on a standard cabriolet and the side windows, which are manually operated, have no quarter lights.

This sleek and immensely stylish car was an instant hit with the public World wide, such was the demand that the cars were being sold second hand well over the list price in period. With approximately 2,000 cars produced, there were only 53 right hand drive cars destined for the UK, and demand for them has waned little for them in the last decade.

This beautiful example presented here, in black with 'mushroom' colour hide has only covered 39,000 miles since new. Having been serviced within the last 500 miles, it remains in excellent overall condition. Supplied with a large history file, an MoT until August 2007 and V5 Logbook it represents a fine example of what is a rare and truly exotic Porsche 911.
