Supplied new by Ian Anthony Porsche of Wilmslow, Cheshire in August 1988, the first owner of this 911 Turbo Cabriolet must have been rather pleased with their choice of specification when they first set eyes upon the car in the Porsche showroom. Finished in Marine Blue metallic paintwork with Blue-piped Linen leather seats and a Navy Blue hood specified with options including 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.

Today the speedometer shows just 24,281 miles and looking through the detailed history file it is clear to see that this example has been exceptionally well maintained over the years. This Turbo is accompanied by its original Porsche book pack, service book containing entries from Porsche main agents and highly regarded specialists at regular intervals. Also included with the file are a wealth of related invoices and old MOT Certificates leaving little doubt that the indicated mileage is correct.

This UK Turbo Cabriolet is a rare opportunity to own a landmark car of the era that is fully 'on the button' and ready to go. With such limited numbers built, it may also represent an excellent investment opportunity. Supplied with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the car is fully matching numbers and totally original throughout and also benefits from a '930' private registration number which has been generously included by our vendor.

This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
