Only 2,104 examples of the new Speedster were built between January and September of 1989, and of that total, only 823 were delivered to the United States. The Speedster, option number M503, was the last variant based on the outgoing K-program chassis, which was soon to be replaced by the almost totally new Type 964. Porsche offered the new Speedster in both slant-nose and turbo-body variants in Germany, but only the turbo-look was sold in the U.S.

The 911 Speedster was distinctively shaped by Porsche’s styling department, then under the direction of Tony Lapine. It offered a cut-down windshield reminiscent of the original, a minimal “emergency” single-layer fabric top, and a twin-humped fiberglass tonneau that covered the area where the occasional rear seats would have lived. The front quarter windows were eliminated, and the new side windows were manually operated. Like the original 356 Speedster, the new version was rarely seen with its top up.

But because it was designed pre-Carrera 4, it was not a Porsche 911 of the future. In fact, the ’89 Speedster would be the last 911 model built at the old Stuttgart factory. Starting with the 964 series, Porsche shifted 911 production to a modern new plant near its Stuttgart headquarters.

Like the rest of the immensely popular 3.2 Carrera line introduced in 1984, the Speedster was fitted with a rear-mounted, air-cooled SOHC flat-six (Type 930/25) of 3,164-cubic centimeter displacement. This engine, equipped with Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection, could produce 215 horsepower at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque was 195 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm, which was delivered through a Type G50 fully synchronized five-speed manual transaxle. Oil-fed chain tensioners, which were introduced on the Carrera-series engines, helped to make this a very robust and long-lived powerplant. Power-assisted and ventilated disc brakes were mounted at all four corners, with an 11.8-inch diameter in the front and a 12.1-inch diameter in the rear.

VIN is wp0eb0915ks173628 and the engine number is 64KD6202 The odometer reads 40,504 actual miles but mileage is exempt due to age, and is being sold on a clear title. Be sure to check out our video on the MotoeXotica YouTube Channel. What are you waiting for? GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
