WHAT MAKES THIS CAR SPECIAL?

Introduced in 1984 as a replacement to the 911 SC, the Porsche 911 Carrera was the final version of the of the original 911 series and the definitive sports car of the 1980’s. Engine size was enlarged to 3.2l with the power increasing to 234 BHP. In 1987 updates to the Carrera range included a new five speed Getrag G50 gearbox and hydraulic clutch vs the previous cable operated clutch. Three models were available: Coupe, Targa and Convertible

For the 1988 model year, Porsche produced 875 “Commemorative Edition” or “Jubilee” cars to mark the production of 250 000 911’s in 25 years

Unique features of these cars are:

  • Diamond Blue Metallic paint
  • Silver blue leather interior
  • Colour matched Fuchs wheels
  • Dr Ferdinand Porsche’s signature embroidered on headrests
  • Superior equipment level:
    • Painted wheel centres
    • Electric seats
    • Short shift gear lever
    • Sports suspension
    • Luxury carpet option

This Example:

This Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is not only one of the upgraded examples with upgraded G50 gearbox and hydraulic clutch but is also one of the 875 Commemorative edition cars

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.
