Supplied new by Ian Anthony Porsche of Wilmslow, Cheshire in August 1988 to a Mr. John Holmes, this is a very rare, UK supplied, 911(930) Turbo that has been exceptionally well maintained and covered just 24,000 miles from new. Finished in Marine Blue Metallic with Linen leather seats, the factory options when new included recoil bumpers, tonneau cover in blue, heated driver and passenger seats, heavy-duty battery, Limited Slip Diff, Blaupunkt stereo, power hood, amplifier system, top tint windscreen, luggage compartment trimmed in black velour, and soft-look leather seats.

Having formed a part of a significant private collection this car has an outstanding service history, all with main dealers and noted specialists, including all prior MOTs which confirm the mileage as genuine and therefore warranted. It was acquired by our vendor from noted Porsche specialists Hexagon Modern Classics in July 2015 for a sum close to £100k and has been well maintained but rarely used ever since. Since then it has been properly stored in a purpose built heated facility. This UK Turbo Cab is a rare opportunity to own an iconic car of the era that is fully "on the button" and ready to go and with such limited numbers built, it also represents an excellent investment opportunity. Supplied with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity the car is fully matching numbers and totally original throughout and also benefits from a '930' private registration number which is included in the hammer price.
