This classic 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster is by far the leggiest example we’ve come across, having covered an insane 283k miles (455,000 km).
It’s perhaps the most well-driven example available on the world right now, and if you always wanted a classic 911 Speedster that you can drive without remorse, this is your chance. The car is now offered in an online auction at the newly-launched Collecting Cars.
Clearly this is not a garage queen then, thanks to its owner who used it as his -arguably very awesome- daily driver for 17 years. He bought it in 1992 with just 600 miles on the odometer and has been used all year round since then, be it rain or snow.
Despite the huge mileage this Porsche has been lovingly and regularly maintained; the Diamond Blue paintwork is described to be in excellent condition, benefiting from a repaint while all the trim elements are also in very good order.
The all-original leather interior and cabin trim does come with some minor defects, as you would expect from a car of this age and mileage, but the seats are still in good order and all the switchgear works as it should. Overall the cabin of this 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster doesn’t look like an interior of a car that has covered nearly 300,000 miles.
Beyond the regular servicing, the owner renewed the wheel bearings, brake disks and the alternator. The original clutch was replaced at 206,000 miles, which is frankly astonishing. Along with the clutch, the flat-six engine also received a full restoration, with the unit completely taken apart and rebuilt.
Combining the classic Speedster charm with a liberating amount of miles under its belt means that this Porsche is one rare opportunity for the right person. And let’s not forget the honor of taking the car over the symbolic 300,000-mile mark.
