With 2,104 examples built in total, the 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster celebrates Porsche heritage with unique bodywork harkening back to the original 356 Speedster of the 1950s. It features a lightweight design, a short steeply raked windscreen, and a distinctive double-hump tonneau cover behind the seats. This example is one of 823 Speedsters delivered to the United States and has received a custom 962-spec turbocharged engine build along with steel RSR fender flares, modular BBS wheels, and racing-style interior upgrades. Said to have remained with the same owner for over 30 years, this one-of-a-kind Speedster is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California with just over 36k miles showing on the odometer.
This 911 has been fitted with a set of steel RSR front and rear fender flares to accommodate lightweight BBS modular wheels measuring 17”x9” in front and 17”x12” in the rear. The car is finished in Guards Red and sports a custom front bumper with dual driving lights and dive planes as well as a 930 Turbo rear spoiler to house the intercooler. The seller describes the finish to be in very good overall condition apart from minor chips on the leading edges of the fenders, a hairline paint crack on the right rear quarter panel, and some black paint separation on the windscreen. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The black interior of this example has been lined with custom German square weave carpeting and fitted with RS door panels along with an integrated roll bar, an Alcantara-wrapped MOMO steering wheel, drilled pedals, and a pair of Recaro bucket seats with Schroth safety belts. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
The air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six is said to have been rebuilt to Porsche 962 specs by Neil Harvey of Performance Development. The engine features Mahle 95mm pistons and cylinder liners, Carrillo rods, twin-plug 962 cylinder heads with custom studs, a performance camshaft, a full-width intercooler, individual throttle bodies, and a Garrett turbocharger with dual 44mm wastegates. Other features include a fully sequential EFI system with a CDI dual channel ignition, 3ml spec wiring, a high-volume fuel pump, a 962 oil pump, and a custom stainless steel exhaust system with full merge collectors. The seller reports a dyno-tested output of 742 HP and 860 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed G50 manual transmission. Other performance upgrades include heavy-duty CV joints, a high-performance clutch, oversize Brembo brakes, adjustable Bilstein shocks, custom sway bars, adjustable links, and a strut tower cross brace. The seller states that approximately 1,500 miles have been driven since the engine was built.
This sale will include a clean title.
