**Regretfully Withdrawn**
  • First registered on the 1 st  August 1989 as one of just 50, right-hand drive Turbo Cabriolets

  • Highly-specified display car for Porsche GB Ltd and subsequently sold through AFN Chelsea

  • Presented in Schwartz with an ivory leather interior. Fitted with the G50 five-speed gearbox

  • Documented service history and MOT certificates warrant the mileage of just 62,400

  • An Autolign inspection in 2005 regarding light damage to the offside front wing lists the car as a Category N on HPI records

  • Offered from a deceased estate that included Daytona, Dino and Testarossa Ferraris

The Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Cabriolet is the only 'normal production' Porsche cabriolet to be equipped with the air-cooled turbo engine. Moreover, only approximately 100 were produced and just 50 right-hand drive examples were built. Fitted with the 3.3-litre, air-cooled, turbo engine and later G50 5-speed gearbox, the car generates over 330 bhp and has a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds. Porsche Cars GB Ltd. have provided written confirmation that this car was originally their display car and was, naturally, very well specified at the time before subsequently being sold by AFN Chelsea on the Brompton Road, London SW6.

Offered to auction with a detailed history file including the documented service history and MOT Test Certificates that corroborate the indicated mileage, this lovely 930 has patently been very well cared for. In 2005, an insurance claim was made in relation to light damage to the offside front wing, however, the previous owner sought to have this work independently inspected by Autolign inspections of Mawsley in accordance with the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre resulting in the car being listed as a Category N on HPI records.

Previously sourced from a private collection, this beautifully presented example in gloss black with an ivory leather interior was fully serviced at Porsche Reading in 2017. At the same time, it was subject to the standard Porsche ‘111-point Vehicle Inspection’ (report with the car) and has travelled less than 260 miles since. In 2017, the car was bought by a young collector, James Harris, who stabled it alongside his 930 Speedster and Daytona, Dino and Testarossa Ferraris. Sadly, Mr Harris passed away in 2019 and we are offering the car on behalf of his estate at a very competitive guide price.

One of just 50 right-hand drive examples
