From an Important Private Collection

In the 1950s, Porsche developed a lightweight, low-production roadster that became legendary not only on the racetracks of the world but also in the garages of the rich and famous. The Speedster model soon became synonymous with high-performance, streamlined styling, and with exceptional German build quality.

In 1989, Porsche revived the Speedster name for a limited run of cars based upon the 911 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet. When the 964 series succeeded the 3.2 in 1990, it too produced a Speedster model based upon the all-new C2 chassis and uprated 3.6 powerplant. The 964 Speedster, launched for the 1993 model year, was a Porsche for purists. With its manual soft top, heavily bolstered Recaro bucket seats, narrow bodywork, and attractive Cup wheels, it combined the best qualities of the glamorous C2 Cabriolet and the high-performance 964 RS.

The 964 Speedster offered here is one of only 427 built for the US market, out of a worldwide production of 936 cars. According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the car came well appointed with optional AM-FM cassette player, cruise control, and air-conditioning. Showing only 13,831 miles at the time of cataloguing, it carries extensive dealer service receipts that include a major maintenance package and multi-point inspection within the last 150 miles. Seldom seen in this attractive triple black color scheme, this exceptionally well-maintained, low-mile example offers the Porsche Speedster experience in a modern, handsome package.
