Footnotes

  • In production from April 1975, the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age. When Porsche revealed that the original 911 would be replaced by the new Type 964 in 1990, it was announced that a special, limited-edition batch of 50 Turbos would be built, incorporating as standard features that previously had been available only as factory optional extras. These included rear wheel air intakes, side skirts and a front spoiler, creating a look reminiscent of the Type 935 Le Mans sports racers. A Getrag five-speed gearbox was already standard on the Turbo, to which the LE added a limited slip differential and an extra 30bhp, making it the most powerful variant ever built.
    This right-hand drive Porsche 911 Turbo LE was delivered new via Malaya Garage of Billingshurst, West Sussex on 12th August 1989 and formerly was owned by Pete King, co-owner of Ronnie Scott's jazz club in Soho. The car retains its limited edition plaque in the cabin while other noteworthy features include heated seats, electric door mirrors, leather steering wheel and Blaupunkt sound system. There are 16 stamps in the accompanying original service booklet and at time of cataloguing the car had covered 69,594 miles from new. Recent work (carried out by Porscheworx in October 2011) included overhauling the rear brakes and fitting one Porsche-approved Pirelli rear tyre (invoice on file). Stored for the last 30 months, the car has covered only some 300 miles since its most recent MoT in October of this year. Finished in Forest Green with cream leather interior, this fine example of the ultimate 911 Turbo comes complete with tool kit and Porsche tyre pump, and is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to October 2012 and Swansea V5 registration document. The provision of later alloy wheels is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
