The 356 Speedster has long occupied a small but perfectly formed
slot in the Porsche hall of fame. particularly in America where it
fused post-war Teutonic efficiency with Fifties glam Americana. It
was Porsche's US importer who suggested the idea; a simple. no
frills take on the then current 356 model ideally suited to the
sun-kissed environment of California. To market the car at a more
affordable price. Porsche stripped all unnecessary comforts from
within. fitted bucket seats (and not much else) and gave it the
bare minimum of weather protection. The result was not only a
distinctive and hugely popular car but also one that. thanks to its
keen power to weight ratio. was often to be found in minor sports
car races on the weekends. Jump forward a few decades and a more up
to date version appeared using the next legendary model
nomenclature. The 911 Speedster. a low-roof version of the
Cabriolet. was produced in limited numbers (2. 04) starting in
January 1989 until July 1989 as both a narrow body car and a
turbo-look.

This two owner. Carrera wide-body Speedster was first registered
in July 1989 and clearly purchased and maintained irrespective of
cost. One of just 12 delivered to Australia. this vehicle was
purchased by an avid collector and as seen from the original order
sheet it was ordered as a Turbo-bodied Speedster. Much to the
purchaser's disappointment. the supplying Porsche dealer was unable
to supply the vehicle with the 'Flatnose' as he wanted. This was
due to certain homologation restrictions in Australia at the time.
To overcome this. at great expense. he commissioned a bodywork
specialist to carry out the task of creating what we see today to
Porsche's exacting standards. An abundance of service history
resides within the history file together with a letter from the
company confirming the work carried out and also invoices of the
original parts that were all sourced from Porsche.

The bodywork and paint on this Speedster have been maintained to
a very high standard and it is evident that the condition of the
interior has been kept as well as the exterior. The upgraded black
leather RS sport seats have a retail value of circa £4. 00 each
alone; however the original seats and 911 impact bumpers are also
included with the sale. The RUF Porsche wheels are an extremely
expensive option and. as with the bodywork and interior. are in
fantastic condition.

The service history schedule has been stamped and kept up to
date to a remarkable standard and detailed here:

Despite the incredibly low mileage the servicing has been
carried out religiously by the same specialist throughout most of
its life and Rosebay Automotive provide confirmation in the history
file of the care they have taken of the car whilst in Australia.
This is accompanied by further history which we believe renders
this Speedster not only unique but one of the best examples left on
the market today. representing a fantastic opportunity for any
collector or Porsche enthusiast.
