This 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster is one of 823 US-market examples produced for the model year and is finished in Linen Grey Metallic over black leather, the car is powered by a 3.2-liter flat-six mated to a G50 five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. Equipment includes 16″ Fuchs alloy wheels, a black soft top, a fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top cover panel, power-adjustable seats, air conditioning, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo. This 911 Speedster shows 5k miles and is now offered with a Porsche Production Specifications certificate, manufacturer’s literature, a maintenance booklet, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The Speedster shares its widened rear bodywork with the 911 Turbo and features a shortened windscreen, side windows, and a fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top rear deck. This example is finished in Linen Grey Metallic with a black soft top, and equipment includes integrated front fog lights, headlamp washers, rear wheel-arch stone guards, rear bumperettes, and a third stop light.
Staggered-width 16″ Fuchs wheels feature black centers and are mounted with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires measuring 205/55 up front and 245/45 at the rear. Braking is handled by black Porsche-script calipers over cross-drilled rotors at all four corners.
The seats are upholstered in black leather and are complemented by a color-matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes power-adjustable seats, a heated driver’s seat with lumbar support, air conditioning, cruise control, Porsche-branded floor mats, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo. The Speedster was not equipped with rear seats.
The four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation including a central tachometer with a 6,300-rpm redline flanked by a 170-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for oil temperature, oil pressure, oil level, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 5k miles.
The 3.2-liter flat-six features Bosch fuel injection and was factory rated at 215 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a G50 five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. Additional photos of the underside are provided in the gallery.
