In 1989, marking what was believed to be the end of the forced-induction 911, Porsche created a very special, limited-edition 930 hoping to create the ultimate 'Turbo'. Starting out as a standard 3.3-litre model, the cars were then sent to the 'Exclusive' team at Zuffenhausen who rebuilt each example by hand. Just 50 of these cars were produced, offered at an incredible price of £84,492. Adding to its exclusivity, each Porsche Centre was limited to just one example. A host of bespoke, no-cost options was offered, including colour-coded wheel centres, a choice of any colour for the bodywork as well as interior leather and top-tinted windscreen. The car was finished off with a gold plaque on the centre console as recognition for the LE's place in Porsche history.

'G927 YND' was first registered on the 3rd August 1989 as a UK-market, right-hand drive car finished in Black with Cream leather upholstery. Since then it has been enjoyed by four previous owners and covered a mere 25,932 warranted miles as detailed by the accompanying MOT Certificates in the comprehensive history file. The car has been well maintained throughout its life benefitting from Porsche main dealer servicing up to 23,000 miles in 2006. From this point forward it has been part of a private collection and has led a pampered 2,800-mile existence with regular oil and filter changes carried out at a similar time as the annual MOTs. This original UK right-hand drive, matching numbers example is in stunning condition and presented with the original book pack, V5C and current MOT.  

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.
