Pulling heritage from Porsche's original Speedster from the 1950s,
the final iteration of the G-body 911 was introduced with critical
acclaim. Styling cues from the original with the swept back
windshield, less weight, and with a small production for the entire
world, it was instantly a collector's paradise. For simplicity and
purity, there was no power steering and ABS was removed, and the
engine remained naturally aspirated. However, for the 1989 model
year the G-50 5-speed manual transaxle was introduced which had
improved performance with a hydraulic clutch. All in all, between
the design purity of exterior with the underpinnings from the last
hurrah of the G-body 911, the 1989 911 Speedster is one of the
purest forms of driving you can experience.
This Speedster was special ordered by Mick Williams, who was the
General Manager of Stoddard, one of the first Porsche dealers in
the US. Mr. Williams was also the president of the Porsche Club of
America from 1975 to 1978. The speedster received tremendous number
of options including multiple Porsche exclusive (Sonderwunsch)
L700 Black (Schwarz) Paint
LE Black leather with leatherette beltline
C02 Equipped with Catalytic converter
The Porsche exclusive options package included interior parts
completed cover in leather, such as the instrument panel, control
panel, locking knobs, control knobs, glove box, turn signal and
wiper stalk and many more. During his ownership he ensured that the
car was serviced properly and driven sparingly. Upon Mr. Williams
passing in 1994, the car was sold with 5,783 miles.
Gary Simmons purchased the car in 1994 and owned it for a short
time until being sold in 1995. Famous Car Collector of all-things
Porsche, William "Chip" Connor purchased the speedster in March
10th, 1995. This special speedster was added in his collection. Mr.
Connor went on to own the car for a total of 19 years until he
decided to sell it in 2014. The speedster arrived to Canepa, where
it was in immaculate condition, and was ready for the new
Its most recent owner, who had the Speedster serviced at Autoscope
European Car repair in Dallas, Texas. During his ownership, the car
accumulated less than 500 miles in the last 4 years.
Upon arrival the car was inspected from front to back. As expected,
the speedster looks like it just came out of the Porsche showroom.
With the mechanical inspection and service taken care of as part of
the "Canepa Difference" process, the car was treated to a complete
concours-level detailing inside, outside and underside. The
original Black paintwork was polished to perfection. With the rest
of the car meticulously inspected, serviced and cleaned, this
collector-owned Speedster is an awesome original example.
