Being a 1989 car, the gear box is the sought after G50 which was only available between 1987 and 1989. The wheels are standard 16 inches diameter, six inches wide on the front and eight inches wide on the rear. The car is the last of the impact bumper 911s – the flat 6, 3.2 litre 231 BHP engine being considered by some to be one of the best air cooled 911 engines ever made. This is the last true 911 model, after this, all the following 911 generations also have an additional model number.
The bodywork is excellent, the paint still has the original slight orange peel finish as it did when it left the factory. The car has won many regional Concours trophies and has also been shown at national level. Although I don’t do much in the way of Concours these days, I still keep the car cleaned and polished.
