1992 Porsche 911 Roadster America Additional Info:

Porsche 1992 America Roadster
This is most likely the lowest mileage Porsche 964 American Roadster left, a one owner car with only 3373 miles since new.Finished in black 'Schwartz' with Tan leather interior this car was bought new in 1992 and has remained with its first and only owner throughout its life.

In 1952 the fledgling Porsche company already had its eyes set on what would become its biggest marked, that of North America and sticking to Dr. Porsches ethos of an efficient and fast two seater they produced a no nonsense sportster dubbed the 'America Roadster’ of which just 25 examples were manufactured and all but one sold in the US market.

Fast forward forty years to 1992, Porsche had built a legend in the 911 originally designed by Ferdinand ‘Butzi’ Porsche in 1964, now in what is considered the final iteration of the classic body shell the 964 had evolved into a thoroughly modern car with all of the expected creature comforts and safety equipment expected in the modern world.

To celebrate the initial run of 25 cars from forty years earlier Porsche reintroduced the name for a short run of 964 models, producing in the process a limited run of 250 of the 964 'America Roadsters.’ Utilizing a Turbo wide body convertible it was equipped with such features as special 17” Cup wheels, turbo brakes and suspension, a rear seat delete making it a strictly two seater and a fully electric convertible top. Keeping the lines clean and roadster like the rear spoiler was that of the regular Carrera 2 and 4, a speed activated electric unit housed in the engine lid rather than the fixed whale tail of the turbo. the normally aspirated flat six the America Roadster were rated at280hp

Just 250 Porsche America Roadsters were built, and this could likely be the lowest mileage model left in existence at just 3373 miles from new, not only that, its a one owner car originally bought in North Carolina,moving to the Bay Area of San Francisco when the owner relocated their business here.

Finished in solid black (Schwarz) with Tan interior featuring Ruffled leather seats, condition is as ‘showroom fresh’ as you are ever likely to see, the paint finish is all Porsche original, all factory finishes are present, all factory stickers are there as are the toolkit, Tire compressor, spare tire bag and tire changing gloves. It was optioned with a Tiptronic transmission, making it rarer still as only 41 cars were so equipped

In April of this year a burgler helped himself to the contents of the owners home and used the Porsche to transport the valuables to his getaway car. After he abandoned the 964 close by it was recovered by police within 36 hours with no damage whatsoever. Following this it was transported to Stead Porsche of Walnut Creek, a thorough service and a ‘make it perfect’ mandate resulted in an 'on the button’ car ready for the new owner. Copies of Stead's invoices are included.
