1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Supersport Cabriolet
Registration no. to be advised
Chassis no. WPOZZZ91ZGS150837
Engine no. 63G02553
Porsche's first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a 'halfway-house' design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-litre form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered hood featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window. The Cabriolet continued when the 'Carrera' name was applied to all 911 models, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine, from 1984.

A righthand-drive model supplied new in the UK by official Porsche agents Heddell & Deeks, of Ferndown, Dorset and originally registered '517 DOV', this well cared-for example comes with full service history including service book last stamped on 24th January 2003 at 96,022 miles by Specialist Cars of Malton. The most recent major (12,000-mile) service (also by Specialist cars) was recorded on 9th November 2001 at 92,939 miles. Accompanying invoices for parts, maintenance and servicing total in excess of £12,000 and include one dated 30th August 1996 from Porsche specialists Pickup Motorsport for installation of a new clutch assembly. There is an almost complete run of 12 MoT certificates covering the period June 1989 to September 2004, the most recent of which (dated 12th September 2003) records the mileage total as 97,327. Previous changes of registration mark also are recorded. Finished in black with matching leather interior, the car boasts stylish Porsche Cup 17" 'dog-leg' wheels and is described by the private vendor as in excellent overall condition. (The original wheels are available if required). It should be noted that the cherished registration mark 'C5 MCT' is being retained by the vendor. The vehicle is taxed until June 2004 and is expected to possess a fresh Swansea V5 by time of sale.
