Dating from the first year of Cabriolet production, this 3.3-litre Porsche 911 Turbo was completed on 31st August 1987 and prepared at the Porsche factory for display at that year's IAA Show in Frankfurt. It was painted for the show in Pearlescent Gold, a stunning colour that was not offered for production cars. It is the only Type 930 Turbo Cabriolet painted in this colour by Porsche, and thus unique. Email confirmation that this is an 'IAA Exhibition Frankfurt vehicle' may be found in the accompanying history file together with photographs of the Porsche stand and an original IAA Show programme. Little else is known of the car's early history.

Gerd Helmers, a German doctor of engineering, owned this Porsche for many years; he was married to a Welsh lady, and the car was stored, unused, in Wales for approximately 16 years. The current vendor purchased the Turbo from Dr Helmers on 13th January 2013, at which time it was still on German number plates ('FMH 911'). Porsche specialists Canford Classics have since re-commissioned the car to a high standard (all invoices and receipts are on file). We are advised that it was stripped and the body found to be corrosion free, following which the entire 'shell was repainted in the original colour. In addition, the original turbocharger and waste gate were rebuilt, while the gearbox was removed, stripped and rebuilt with new parts as required. Other new parts fitted include the exhaust system, drive shafts, battery, tyres, and hood (to original specification). The original seats have been cleaned, and we are advised that all dashboard instruments are in good operating condition. Described as clean and excellent, the original engine is said to perform to factory specification. Apart from trips for servicing, the car has not been used since the rebuild's completion in April 2015.

The aforementioned history file contains a Porsche Cars GB Certificate of Authenticity; a UK V5C registration document; an MoT certificate valid until March 2017; a full condition report; and a copy of the December 2015 edition of 'GT Porsche' magazine featuring this actual car (pages 52-58). This unique Porsche 'Show Car' also comes complete with all tools, spare wheel, jack, and compressor.
