One of the most collectible and desirable of all of the G50 Porsches (1987-1989) is the Speedster. They had a limited production run of 823 for the U.S. as well as the production-end of that body style. Unfortunately, many of these cars were hoarded by dealer owners and are still rarely driven. This example has low enough miles to be very collectible, but not so low that it prohibits you from enjoying the feeling of driving one.
This Speedster was built in May of 1989 and part of the Tourist Delivery Program offered by Porsche. It was delivered at the Factory in Stuttgart on June 27th, 1989. The first owner used it on holiday and eventually took final U.S. delivery from Porsche Exchange, Inc. in Highland Park, Illinois. It was ordered with the following factory optional equipment:
U. S. Emissions
Leather steering Wheel with Elevated Hub
Cassette-radio Blaupunkt Charleston SQR 26
Locking Differential – 40% (LSD)
Short shifter for G50 Transmission
Luggage Compartment Instead of Rear Seat
Tourist Delivery Preparation
This example was definitely special ordered by a driver. None of the “fluff” options were checked. Primarily performance oriented additions were selected.
The first owner was a medical device engineer who designed the modern day defibrillator. He also served in the Counter Intelligence Corp. of the US Army. One of his great passions was car racing. He had a successful career racing in Formula 2/Junior for Meisterbrau and Yenko Stinger. In the summer of 1989, he special ordered this ’89 Speedster and took Tourist delivery at the factory. He kept the car for almost 7 years/6k-miles before selling it to a local high school teacher on February 23rd, 1996. This was the dream car of the 2nd owner. She saved her money for years until she could finally afford this Speedster. For the next 15-years, she added another 10k-miles. Obviously, it was just a weekend car. She sold it to the current owner in November of 2010 with 17,500 miles. The current owner is a long time German car enthusiast with a very diverse collection. We have been fortunate to help this owner sell many of his cars over the years. They are always exceptional examples that are well serviced and properly looked after by top professionals.
Shortly after purchasing this Speedster, the current Los Angeles area owner took the car to Callas Rennsport of Torrance, California to perform a post purchase inspection. This inspection included checking all the fluids, making a new key, general inspection, replacing alternator belt, removing/cleaning main fuel injection harness, performing diagnostics on charging system, and replenishing all oils (motor, trans, diff.).
Although this owner has barely covered another 500-miles since purchasing it, he had it started regularly and driven around his storage facility. Also, the oil service was performed at least once a year and many times twice a year. The last oil service was less than 6-months ago.
This speedster looks fantastic. The paint has a great shine to it and shows minimal signs of use. It’s all original and checked with a paint meter (see pics). There are no significant chips, scratches, or dents. The glass is all original including the rare original windshield. There are no chips or scratches on the glass. The soft top looks fantastic with no tears or heavy wear marks. The seals look fresh as well. The rear plastic window is clear with no yellowing and just minor signs of wear. All factory VIN decals are in their proper locations: doors, hood, and rear hatch. The factory Fuchs are wearing their original finish. They are in excellent shape with just 2 very small curb rashes (see pics). They are wearing Bridgestone tires that are older and need to be replaced. The brakes have near full life remaining. All the exterior and interior lights work.
The interior looks equally as nice and indicative of a low mile example. The leather sport seats show hardly any wear. There are no tears or cracks. The soft top headliner is in excellent condition. The door panels look great with no sagging and the carpet has no stains. The dash is perfect with no cracks or warping. The sun visors were removed by a previous owner and are no longer with the car. All the gauges function properly as does the heating system. The clock does not work. The aftermarket radio powers up, but does not make sound.
This Speedster drives fantastically. So many of these low mile examples have just been garaged and never driven. Although this one has been lightly driven for the last 9-years, it has been properly serviced. Everything feels tight and new. It starts easily with no smoking and holds an even idle. The shifter feels smooth with no grinding or slipping. The car tracks straight. The handling is crisp and responsive. It would be improved with a fresh set of tires. Pirelli now makes the correct OEM sizes for this car. The brakes have great initial bite with no fading or pulling. This example is surprisingly comfortable to drive with the top up or down and wind noise is at a minimum. It would make a wonderful addition to any collection as well as be a blast on vintage tours or weekend cruising to your local cars and coffee events.
This Speedster passes California’s strict smog/emissions test and is currently registered until November of 2020.
This Porsche comes with all the owner’s manuals, extra keys, original maintenance booklet with dealer stamps, VIN decoder showing engine/trans number from Porsche, space-saver spare tire, jack, air compressor, complete tool kit, and wheel locks.
