Interior – A high point of this particular 911.
Spectacular Can-Can Red leather sets a dramatic and stylish contrast against the Grand Prix White exterior and black internal details.
Both driver and passenger seats show no more than a slight age related patina with no cuts, scratches or heavy creasing. Folding Rears are as new.
The perforated head-lining, door cards, carpets and over-mats are unmarked.
Black leather dash has no splits, tares or sun damage, commonly, just a few slight abrasions above steering wheel due to its close proximity and, no doubt, the fashion in the 80’s for some owners to wear more jewelry than is now acceptable!
All dials and displays are clear and bright.
Inside the front bonnet, all carpets are superb, and when removed, the area looks clean and dry with no evidence of any previous damage.
Factory correct Space-Saver wheel, with “Model-Specific” Made in Norway stamp, and dated 03/85, still has its original brown paper label attached, a clear indication of, not only never having been used on the road, but also the lack of any moisture in the compartment over many years
Full tool roll, air compressor plus dial tyre gauge are all present.
(350mm Semi dished, black suede steering wheel included, actually much nicer to use than original horizontal 4 spoke now fitted).
Exterior – The iconic shape of the 1980’s, 930 Turbo body, must be one of the most enduring automotive images of all time.
Paintwork looks solid and even. Front and rear bumpers have been removed and re-finish at some point in the past to sustain the quality of the overall appearance.
All rubber seals, bellows, over-riders, lenses and glass are in fine order, as are wiper arms, blades and door handles.
Wheels and Tyres – Original Fuchs 16”Alloys are all bright, in very good condition with no kerbing what so ever.
Body coloured centres, locking, light-weight wheel nuts and new, genuine Porsche, billet centre caps. (Originals also present)
