According to the original Maintenance booklet, this Commemorative edition Porsche 911 Carrera was delivered to Gothfried Schmid on the 31st of July 1987 by MAHAG Sportwagen Zentrum in Munich Germany.
Optional extras specified in the warranty booklet are:
243 - Short shifter lever for G50 transmission
498 - Without model designation on rear end
980 - Draped leather seats
Stamps in the maintenance booklet show that his example remained in Germany for the first three years of its life, with it spending the 1990’s in Cape Town and the 2000’s in Durban. Crossley & Webb sold this Commemorative edition five years ago on behalf of a client in Somerset West and it remained until now in Cape Town.
Recent maintenance includes an annual service earlier in 2020 at Porsche Centre Cape Town including the following repairs at GT Clubsport:
- Drive shafts refurbished
- Replace crankshaft pulley oil seal
- Replace oil seal on sender unit
- Replace gear lever bushes
- Fit 6 x new spark plugs
- Set tappets and replace tappet cover gaskets
- Fit new gearbox mounting supports
This represents a rare opportunity to secure a numbered limited edition of the most iconic sportscar of the 1980’s. Modern classics are sought after in the current classic car market and numbered limited editions similarly so. To have these two factors overlap in the case with the Commemorative edition makes this example extremely desirable and collectable
It is available for viewing at the Crossley & Webb showroom in Gardens Cape Town.
