1989 Porsche Speedster – Desoto, KS

After a 30 year reprieve, 1989 was the first year that Porsche revived the Speedster moniker.  An effort to recreate the nostalgia of the late 356 Speedster out of a 911, the Speedster featured the 911 “turbo look” body – a wedge-shape nose and flat windshield that is 5 degrees flatter and 3 inches shorter than the standard 911.   The top was a manual – without a headliner – which is simple to operate and tucks under the fiberglass cover (also very loud).  This Grad Prix White with Marine Blue interior, one of just 823 imported to the US, has 97,546 miles and is being offered for $138,000.

All numbers are matching to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  Paint appears to be nice and interior is in great shape – especially for the mileage.    Optional equipment includes California emissions, Blaupunkt Radio, shorter gear shift lever, wheel centers in Grand Prix White, Rear Luggage department instead of rear seats, alarm system, A/C, and luggage compartment black velour. Per the seller, the Porsche starts and runs smoothly.  The original factory 3.2 L 6-cylinder engine produced 228 horsepower, a 0-60 in 6.1 seconds, and top speed of 152 mph.  Check out the full details on Hemmings and the buyer’s contact information
