The incredible performance numbers and sinister look made the 3.6 Turbo a cultural icon in the mid 1990’s. Posters of the car could be found on almost every teenagers wall that dreamed of one day owning one. Porsche produced only 1,427 3.6 Turbos for the world. The car up for auction here is believed to be 1 of just 2 Signal Green examples ever produced and will undoubtedly spark interest from discerning collectors around the world.
In 1993, the car was special ordered by the owner of Champion Porsche of Pompano Beach, FL. The car was then sold to Aerosmith Lead Guitarist, Brad Whitford in January 1994. Brad was the keeper of the car for over 10 years until being sold to a collector in Norway with just under 19,000 miles on the odometer. The current owner purchased the Turbo from a Factory Porsche dealership in Oslo, Norway and transported the car back to the US with approximately 30K miles on the odometer. The car is currently part of a world class collection and has been driven less than 1k miles since its purchase 4 years ago. Upon arriving back to the US, the car was immediately brought to Gold Coast Porsche (FKA Roslyn Porsche) for inspection and service. The receipts for the inspection and service will be provided with the sale.
The all original Signal Green paint is in spectacular condition with some very small chips on the hood that are almost undetectable. A Turbo S chin spoiler was installed to protect the under bumper and could be left on or removed with no issue. The gallery photos show the paint, lenses, and rubber trim to be in like new condition. The front bumper was professionally refinished at some point. Paint protection film covers the hood, fenders, and bumper. European side markers were installed by the Porsche Dealership in Norway to legalize European road use. The Factory original Speedline wheels are in excellent condition and are wearing a set of Michelin Pilot Sports that have plenty of tread life. The tires are dated from 2012/2013.
The black leather interior is in like new condition. Wear and tear is almost nonexistent on the full supple leather seats and shows how well cared for this car was throughout its life. The original MSRP was $105,140 and came equipped with a power sunroof, remote CD changer, and colored Porsche crests on the wheels. All electronics work as they should.
Power comes from a 3.6-liter turbocharged flat-six (M64/60) delivering a healthy 408HP and propels the car to 60mph in a blazing 4 seconds. The car is equipped with ABS and power steering.
The car will be delivered with copy of the window sticker, copy of the title (showing Brad Whitford ownership), both sets of keys, owner’s manual, tools, spare tire, air pump, and all service records.
