This 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster was originally built to order for the drummer of the Canadian rock band Rush, Neil Peart, who happens to be an avid motoring enthusiast. The Speedster is finished in black with a black interior and built to Canadian specifications. It was optioned with an AM/FM radio with cassette and dour speakers, and air conditioning with full climate control. It was shipped to Canada in July 1993 and sold through Automobiles E Lauzon of Quebec. Neil Peart enjoyed the car for a number of years, eventually importing it to the US to be used at his Los Angeles residence. Peart parted ways with his Speedster in January of 2003. The car was then purchased by a collector from Kansas who owned it until December 2018 where it sold to a collector in Utah.
The interior is completed in black, with seating for two featuring red-painted hard-shelled Recaro sport seats upholstered in tri-tone leather. The gauge cluster, shifter and boot, emergency brake handle, seatbelts, and door handles and pulls are finished in red, providing a tasteful contrast to the black interior. A placard can be found on the passenger sided dash denoting the car was built especially for Neil Peart. The Speedster features upgraded aftermarket radio unit and speakers, which were naturally completed under Neil Peart’s ownership. The car is accompanied by its Porsche manuals, in their original leather pouch, toll roll, original jack, and spare; a copy of the Neil Peart; and it’s respective Porsche Production Specifications document.
With less than 1,000 examples produced, 50% of which were destined for North America, and even less to Canada, this 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster is quite the rare example. Even more so the fact that it was custom ordered, purchased new, and enjoyed for years by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame drummer, Neil Peart.
