9000km Porsche 911 Speedster offered at auction

9000km Porsche 911 Speedster offered at auction Classic and Performance Car

One of the 139 Porsche 911 Speedsters has been consigned to Silverstone Auctions' May auction, with an estimate of £145,000-£165,000


Next month, a very special Porsche will go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ May sale. The 1989 911 Speedster has covered just 8998km – around 5590miles – and is rare, being one of just 139 models produced. It’s currently estimated to sell for £145,000-£165,000.
 
When launched, the 1989 Speedster was crafted to reflect the style of the 356 Speedster from the 1950s – one of the most iconic cars ever produced by Porsche. The design cues for the 1989 version of the Speedster included the instantly recognisable raked aluminium windscreen, three inches lower than the standard car, combined with the 'double hump' clamshell fibreglass tonneau cover. 
 
The car for auction was originally delivered in July 1989 to a Mr. Victor Berk of New South Wales – hence the right-hand drive car with KMs on the clock. Who is its one and only private registered keeper from new. And Silverstone Auctions has the documentation to prove it, including the original dealer order form, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (GB), an introduction letter from Porsche Australia to Mr. Berk and every MOT certificate for work carried out by the supplying dealer in New South Wales from new until June 2014. 
 
All this literature is contained in the leather wallet and book pack with spare keys, and the information pack comes with a demo cassette for the Blaupunkt audio system. 
 
Managing Director of Silverstone Auctions, Nick Whale, said: ‘A 'triple black' wide-bodied, right-hand drive Speedster is a rare thing of great beauty and in this condition, an exceptional find that is highly collectible. Silverstone Auctions are very proud to be offering the car for public sale.’
