1989 Porsche 911 25th Anniversary Edition 3.4 L G50

Now available for auction is this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 25th Anniversary Edition presented in Silver Metallic over a Silk Grey leather interior.  Imported to Canada by a previous owner in 2010, this 1989 Carrera represents one of only 300 25th Anniversary Examples delivered to the U.S. market. Given the provenance of this special edition, this 911 was treated to an upgraded Elephant Racing suspension setup as well as a full engine rebuild with a 3.4 L displacement upgrade resulting in unadulterated driver-oriented performance. Showcasing some considerable performance upgrades as well as a desirable factory G50 5-speed manual transmission, this tastefully appointed Anniversary Edition is now being offered for auction in brilliant running order with approximately 121k miles showing on the odometer.

Stated to have always been garage kept under the current ownership, the Silver Metallic finish on this Anniversary Edition is said to be in good overall condition with a few minor rock chips and touch-ups (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  The seller notes that a professional ceramic coating treatment was performed in 2019 which is backed by a 10-year warranty.  Visual highlights include factory front and rear spoilers as well as factory Fuchs wheels which have been powder coated in black and preserved under ceramic coating.  New Bridgestone RE-11 tires were also installed within the last 3k miles.

The Silk Grey leather upholstered cabin is said to be in good shape for its age with some minor creasing on the seats.  Modifications include a Momo Prototipo steering wheel, a Wevo shifter and an aftermarket Kenwood head unit with Bluetooth compatibility and an iPhone connection. Factory options include headlamp washers, a sunroof and rear window wiper. The seller notes that the "25th Anniversary" placard is no longer present on the dashboard. The air conditioning has also been upgraded to a RennAire system with a new condenser.  The driver’s side passenger window switch is said to be nonfunctional along with the cruise control feature, however, all other gauges and accessories are said to be working properly.

This 911 is powered by an air-cooled flat-six engine which has been fully rebuilt and upgraded from a 3.2 L to  a 3.4 L displacement through the use of 98mm bored cylinders.  The rebuild was performed in 2014 by Brett Hunter of Hunter Motorsports with approximately 14k miles added since this time.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a factory G50 5-speed manual transmission providing for smooth and precise gear changes. Performance upgrades have also been installed including:

  • 98mm Nickel Plated Cylinders
  • JE Pistons
  • Fabspeed Sport Cat
  • Fabspeed Cat-Back Exhaust
  • Strut Tower Brace
  • Turbo Tie Rods
  • Elephant Racing Sway Bars
  • Elephant Racing/Tarett Suspension Setup
  • New Bilstein Shocks

The seller notes that the brake lines, pads and wheel bearings were replaced at 112k miles and that the alternator was replaced at 113k miles.  The fuel pump was replaced at 116k miles and a new battery was also recently installed along with new wiring.  This 911 is said to be in exceptional driving condition and the seller confirms this car to meet California emissions standards. 

The sale of this 911 will include a set of 2 keys, books and tools, the original exhaust components, steering wheel and shifter, a clear title and a collection of service records.  A potential odometer rollback was noted on the Carfax report, although the seller has indicated this to be a clerical error made during a routine service.  Offering up driver-oriented performance and the prestige associated with a limited edition 911, this 1989 example represents an excellent opportunity for any vintage Porsche enthusiast.

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @tkdhawaii thank you

  • tkdhawaii 1 month, 3 weeksago

    I have an 89 Anniversary Edition also. I have 33K original miles on it. I still have the anniversary plaque on my glove box door. You can get a COA from Porsche North America; I wrote to them when I bought the car in 1990. The COA states that only 120 were produced. Good luck with your sale.

  • ALZ38 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @dvanderburg by sea and insured to sale value. Any port in south of England. I take it there is reserve on the car?

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @ALZ38 my pleasure, the car is accident free and the body is in very good condition (zero rust) with some minor paint flaws as stated in the listing. Shipping costs will vary greatly based on how you’d decide to ship it, what you’d insure it for, etc. I feel unless I have specific details on how’d you’d go about it the estimate I would give you wouldn’t be accurate and I don’t want to give you an inaccurate number. If you give me some more information I’ll do my best to give you an estimate. Thanks

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @harv666 just responded to your pm, thanks

  • harv666 (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @dvanderburg sent you a message. Toronto interest here.

  • ALZ38 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @dvanderburg hi thanks for getting back to me. Is the car accident free? What’s the condition of body for rust? Shipping costs would be great too.

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @ALZ38 Hello, the car is located just outside Toronto, Canada. I have a contact that can assist in shipping the car or provide contacts and different options for shipping.

  • ALZ38 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hi dvanderburg,

    Where is the car located? Is shipping possible to Uk?
    Thanks.

    @Caymanorcarrera I guess it’s a matter of opinion but the car is not an outlaw, nor was it built that way. The car was built as a drivers car. I have all the stock parts so there’s a great opportunity if anyone would want to change the car back to stock that would make for a great investment. While some may see that as a deterrent I see it as an opportunity.

  • Caymanorcarrera 1 month, 3 weeksago

    We don't often see a mild Outlaw built on an LE platform...........not sure why you would?

    The car, built on a normal 3.2 Carrera, would probably enhance value. Skeptical that will be the case here.

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Shutterbug_kk absolutely, I have no problem with that. Brent Hunter at Hunter Motorsports knows the car inside and out and would be the best shop. I have no affiliation to the shop, it’s where it’s been serviced from day 1. If you’d prefer a different shop that works too

  • Shutterbug_kk (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hi Dave, would you consent to a PPI of the car at an independent Porsche specialist? Would you recommend any specialist in your local area?

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @dohertyh3 work that has been done on the car is mostly in the listing: full engine rebuild, full suspension, brakes/brake lines, ceramic paint protection w/ warranty, rennaire full ac replacement with desert duty condenser (blows very cold), new alternator/fuel pump/battery (with new battery wiring), fab speed exhaust (original included), Momo prototipo steering wheel (original included), kenwood deck with Bluetooth and hands free phone connection, wevo shifter (original included), Bridgestone Potenza RE11...the car needs nothing and have paperwork for all work done

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @dohertyh3 I’m on the elephant racing website right now and it looks to me like the packages have changed slightly since I bought mine. I believe it was something similar to the street performance package 2 with upgrades to sport bilsteins and other parts. Pictures 59 and 60 have a list of all the parts from elephant racing that were installed on the car. I can provide pictures of the undercarriage if you’d like, it’s a clean car

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @ksv735 I have never dynoed the car but based on other similar builds done by Brent Hunter and research done prior to the build it’s estimated to be around 270-280 with similar torque numbers. Yes I have all receipts of all the work that has been done to the car

  • dohertyh3 (registered bidder) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    What elephant racing suspension level did you put on? Has any work been done to the G50? Are you going to be providing pictures of the suspension/undercarriage?

  • ksv735 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @dvanderburg Stuff like what bhp she is running after the conversion etc, are all the receipts for work done present ?
    Cheers
    Kev

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    @ksv735 Hi Kev, no I don’t have any off hand, I never really cared too much about the numbers. I can try and get you that info if you let me know what exactly you’re looking for.

  • ksv735 1 month, 4 weeksago

    My favourite colour, had a 81' 930 in this and what a good looking car, yours looks superb and in good condition, do you have stats on performance etc, any rolling road info, 0-60 etc ?

  • jakeg104 (registered bidder) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    Gorgeous! Just pm’ed you. Let me know if you didn’t get it.

  • dvanderburg (seller) 1 month, 4 weeksago

    Thanks for having a look at my G50. My name is Dave and I’ll do my best to answer whatever questions you have. This is a great car, you won’t be disappointed!
