Offered here is likely one of the lowest-mileage 1989 Porsche Speedsters in existence. Displaying just 56 original miles at the time of cataloguing, it retains the hallmarks of a well-preserved, original car such as its original inspection markings and red undercarriage overspray. Completed in July 1989, the Speedster was finished in Guards Red and upholstered with black leather, as noted on the original dealer invoice. Factory equipped with a limited-slip differential, a Rootwood dash panel (a $4,000 option), raised steering hub, heated left seat, short shifter, full power seats, cruise control, and a radio with CD player, the 911 was sold new by Jack Daniels Porsche in New Jersey to Robert Haack of Thousand Oaks, California.

The Porsche spent the entirety of its life in Southern California, and was eventually stored with a dry fuel tank for optimal preservation. In 2020, the previous owner acquired the Speedster from the original owner and treated it to thorough mechanical attention by the marque experts at V & S Motors in Marina Del Rey, California. This included filters, belts, brake hoses, hood and deck lid shocks, work to the engine insulation pad, and a comprehensive fluid service. New Michelin tires were mounted on the Fuchs alloy wheels, although the original tires are included.

The Porsche is documented with the original Jack Daniels dealer invoice and a copy of the Porsche Certificate of Origin. It is accompanied by the original owner’s manuals in the proper folio, including a warranty booklet, dealer directory, and 911 supplement, as well as the air compressor kit, tool roll, and spare key. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an essentially unused example of one of the most iconic Porsche models.

*Please note that this vehicle will not be sold for use or resale in California or to a non-dealer California resident.
