This Porsche 924 Carrera GT comes with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirming that the chassis, engine and gearbox numbers match. The car was delivered new in Madrid, Spain by the official importer in December 1980.
First registered on 23rd January 1981, it retains its original Spanish registration number 'M-3040ED'. The car remained with the original owner until May 1986 when it was bought by a private collector who sold it to the current vendor in December 2011. The car has always resided in Madrid, which has a very dry climate, and is totally free of any rust. It is also accident free and structurally undamaged. The accompanying Spanish technical inspection document records the odometer reading on 23rd November 2011 as 86,940 kilometres, since when the car has been driven a further 1,700 kilometres approximately. There is only one stamp (the importer's) in the service booklet but the car does come with some subsequent service invoices issued by the official Porsche centre in Madrid.
This car has been subject to a comprehensive mechanical overhaul by Talleres Baltasar e Hijos SL, the leading independent Porsche specialist in Spain, full details of which are available. The bodywork and interior were both in very good condition so it was decided to treat them to a thorough clean, rather than full restoration, in order to preserve the pleasing patina of this 33-year-old car. Accompanying bills for this most extensive renovation total in excess of 12,000.
The car comes with correct Fuchs 16" wheels in perfect condition, factory air conditioning and the full set of original keys including a blank, two for glove compartment and the antenna key. Of course, it also comes with the original instruction manual and service booklet a rare opportunity of acquiring an unmolested Carrera GT.
