Want A Virtually Brand New 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster With 251 Miles?

In case you’ve got $285,000 laying around and you’re a big fan of classic Porsches, this low-mileage 1989 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster could make for a great purchase.

Sure, you could spend that money on two 2018 911 Carrera GTS’ or maybe add a few extra grand and get the new GT2 RS, but if you’re a collector, doing so just wouldn’t be as satisfying as actually owning a Speedster.

There are quite a few things that make this car truly special, even among other iconic Porsches. For starters, the Carrera 3.2 Speedster was a limited production model, with just over 2,100 units made between January and July 1989.

It also came with a wide-body look (like the Turbo), plus Turbo suspension and brakes, and a low swept windshield that curbed all the way towards the mirrors, reminiscent of the Porsche 356 Speedster of the 1950s.

All in all, it was about as low and sporty as a Porsche 911 could get back in the late 80s and even early 90s. In fact, Porsche only resurrected the nameplate three other times since then, on the 964, 993, and in 2010 on the 997-gen model.

So what’s the deal with this particular Guards Red 1989 Speedster? According to its eBay ad, it has just 251 miles (404 km) on the clock and it is in excellent condition, both on the outside as well as inside, where it features tan leather seats and a Blaupunkt cassette player.

Other features include the 3.2-liter flat-six unit and the 5-speed manual transmission, a formidable combo.

    This generation is especially ugly. Even for something as typically ugly as 911. And the hump combined with american bumpers probably makes it one of the ugliest sports cars in the world.

    • I guess everyone has their opinion, but for me G-Body Porsche looks attractive, and those impact bumper is not as hideous as others.

    No, not at all. I’m not into ridiculous maintenance costs for a 29 year old Porsche.

    All of this applies to me – except the $285K. How do those GoFundMe things work?

    Why do people buy these cars and store them? these vehicles need to be driven, not hoarded. Hoarding is a disease. Money wise? better off having invested in an index and forgotten about it. This is an opinion.

      The value of used Porsches flay-out destroys any Indexed ETF. That being said, I agree with you.

  • I want it but at the same time you can get other car for that kind of price….
