A timeless classic.
In the realm of classic sports cars, few names spark as much admiration as the Porsche 911 Speedster. A distinguished example of this rare breed, a 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster with just 13k miles on the odometer, is set to go under the hammer tomorrow on Bring a Trailer. This particular model, one of only 823 US-market examples produced for the 1989 model year, boasts an impeccable lineage, initially registered in California before making its way to Connecticut.

Dressed in a sophisticated Dark Blue (L347) with a matching blue soft top, the car exudes elegance and sportiness. Its widened rear bodywork, reminiscent of the contemporary 911 Turbo, and a distinctive fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top rear deck, underline its unique Speedster heritage. The shortened windscreen and side windows, compared to the standard Carrera, enhance its sleek profile, making it a standout piece of automotive design.
Performance and Handling
The vehicle rides on staggered-width 16″ Fuchs wheels with black centers, complemented by Pirelli P Zero tires installed in late 2023. Black Porsche-script calipers over cross-drilled rotors ensure responsive braking. Under the hood, the 3.2-liter flat-six engine, coupled with a G50 five-speed manual transaxle, delivers 215 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, promising an exhilarating driving experience true to the Porsche legacy.
Inside, the Speedster offers a cockpit wrapped in Cashmere Beige leather, with sport seats, door panels, and carpets all adhering to the color scheme. A Marine Blue leather dashboard adds a touch of sophistication, while features like air conditioning, cruise control, hand-crank windows, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo ensure comfort and entertainment on the road.
This 911 Speedster comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a clean Carfax report, and a comprehensive option list decoded for prospective buyers, highlighting its California emissions equipment, shorter shift lever for the G50 transaxle, and more.
