What we have here is one of the very first Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolets to arrive in the UK, it was registered at the end of 1983 which makes it within the first 300 or so made, It is a UK Right Hand Drive car finished in Light Metallic Blue with Dark Blue Leather, has covered a genuine 98k Miles from new but, importantly, has been subject to a £70,000 restoration at Gantspeed Engineering within the last 18 Months, so, as you will see, the car is simply stunning.

The restoration has been fully documented with many photographs showing the work undertaken and all invoices included in the History Folder

The history file includes all of the invoices relating to the recent refurbishment and we also have lots of photographs available of the work done. The file also includes miscellaneous invoices which includes a full gearbox rebuild in 2004 when the mileage was 91094.

The car starts on the button and runs and pulls well. It is rare to come across a car that has had such a major refurbishment which was only completed last year. As you would expect the car is immaculate save for a small bumper scratch, and it would be difficult to find another in this condition. All of the hard work and expense has been incurred and it is now a case of preserving this car in its current state and it should reward its new owner with many years of trouble free motoring, It certainly must be one of the very best Carreras out there and with the added interest of being one of the earliest also. The colours and condition are perfect making this a very attractive proposition
