1989 Porsche 911 Speedster


This 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster is one of 823 US-market examples produced for the model year, and is powered by a 3.2-liter flat-six paired with a G50 five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Guards Red over beige leather upholstery. Equipment includes 16″ wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black soft top, a fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top cover panel, power-adjustable sport seats, air conditioning, and a replacement Porsche Classic head unit. 

The Speedster shared its widened rear bodywork with the 911 Turbo and featured a shortened windscreen, side windows, and a fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top rear deck. This example is finished in Guards Red with a black soft top, and additional exterior details include integrated front fog lights, rear wheel-arch stone guards, rear bumperettes, a third brake light, and a single exhaust outlet. The front bumper and right-front fender were repaired and refinished in 2011. Close-up photographs of the exterior finish and trim are shown in the gallery.

Staggered-width 16″ Fuchs wheels feature black centers and are mounted with 205/55 front and 245/45 rear Pirelli P Zero tires. Bilstein shocks and struts have been added, and braking is handled by black Porsche-script calipers over cross-drilled rotors at all four corners.

The power-adjustable sport seats are upholstered in beige leather and are complemented by color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Equipment includes power-adjustable seats, air conditioning, a shorter gear shift lever, and a Porsche Classic head unit.

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 157k miles.

The 3.2-liter flat-six features Bosch fuel injection and was factory rated at 215 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The engine was rebuilt by Autoworks Colorado of Littleton, Colorado, with work that included replacing the valve guides, main and rod bearings, oil lines, timing chain rails, timing chains, piston rings, gaskets, and fuel lines.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a G50 five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. The clutch, pilot bearing, and release fork were replaced in 2017. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery.

The window sticker shows initial delivery to Roger Jobs Porsche and lists factory colors, equipment, and a total price of $72,922.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Colorado, Florida, and Montana with an initial entry in May 1995.
