Representing the last model year of the “golden age” second-generation 911, this 1989 example features the 911’s classic silhouette and interior design along with the desirable G50 five-speed gearbox. In their time, these 911s were among the swiftest cars on the road, capable of 0–60 mph in under six seconds; their impressive sporting abilities were matched by their effortless high-speed touring traits.
Finished in black with a black interior, this 911 Carrera has had just three owners and showed less than 20,000 miles at the time of cataloguing. The first owner, a university professor, purchased the car new in August 1989. She maintained it extremely well for 18 years, after which the car entered the personal collection of a Porsche dealer before passing to the consignor. This example remains exceptionally original, with only maintenance and wear items replaced. Accompanying the car at sale are service records, window sticker, a battery tender, tool kit, air pump, owner’s manuals and other literature, and the original Bill of Sale. As a bonus, mementos celebrating Ferdinand Porsche’s 80th birthday in 1989 come with this 911, including a bottle of champagne with two glasses, and a tote bag.
This Porsche 911 Carrera offers the savvy enthusiast a thrilling event car that would also present wonderfully as a concours preservation-class entrant.
