NO RESERVE: 1989 PORSCHE 911 (930) TURBO - G50 GEARBOX

KEY FACTS

  • Fully restored in 2016, this iconic performance car remains in superb condition with less than 50 miles covered since.

  • It received a basic service in November 2020 at 76,635 miles by JCT600 Leeds, but is also still fresh from its comprehensive body and mechanical refurbishment.

  • Finished in the popular hue of Guards Red over a black leather interior, this 930 Turbo was also specified with the heated sport seats, a limited-slip differential, velour luggage compartment carpeting, and a sunroof.

CONDITION

  • The bodywork was restored and the car given a complete repaint in 2016, so it remains in excellent condition today. All of the underbody and chassis parts were also refurbished.
  • Its suspension and brakes were fully overhauled, and its alloy wheels were even sent back to Fuchs for professional restoration. All four were then shod in new Continental tyres.
  • The car was last serviced in November 2020 at 76,635 miles by JCT600 Leeds.
  • The interior was left undisturbed as it was still original and in very good order. Its black leather upholstery presents well, with only modest wear.
  • There are no known electrical faults.
  • The vendor states that the warm-up regulator is not currently performing as it should, but this will be rectified before handover to the next owner.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 12 November 2020 at 76,635 miles, which resulted in a first-time pass with no advisories.
