THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The Rijkspolitie was the Netherland's state police from 1945 to 1996. They used a wide variety of vehicles, ranging from Alfa Romeo Spyders to Citroen H vans, but mostly they used Porsche. They bought over 500 cars in 30 years, of which only a few survive.

In 1962 a special traffic unit was formed, the Algemene Verkeers Dienst (AVD), which wore white uniforms instead of blue, and orange helmets. The AVD ordered a number of 356 Convertibles but when the 911 arrived they started using the Targa models, a practice that lasted until 1993 when they switched to Volvo. Open cars were preferred because they afforded the crew better visibility, and in emergencies officers could stand on the seat and give directions to other road users.

Several alterations were made to the AVD 911s: a wooden box containing police equipment was fitted in place of the rear seats, while other typical modifications included a passenger-side door mirror; two internal rear-view mirrors; additional electrical wiring for communications, flashing lights and 'STOP' sign; extra reversing and rear fog lights; and a mobile 'phone. Most cars had a loudspeaker on the rear. Equipment in the wooden box consisted of two CEAG lights; Drager alcohol tester; instructional paperwork; pair of handcuffs; tape measure; white markers; Ricoh camera; two warning triangles; fire extinguisher; towing cable; First Aid kit; set of spare light bulbs; wheel wrench, etc.

The particular example shown here is a 1988 Model with 251,945 kilometers appearing on the dash. As it has served the public good for many years, the car has an honest amount of wear for the miles. It was however, well taken care of and still presents well. The Grand Prix white paint is in good shape and the striking orange visibility decals are all present. The history over its transatlantic journey are unknown, and the engine appears to have been replaced by a motor manufactured in 1987. Certainly an oddity, this unique Porsche should be a solid addition to any collection.
