DescriptionWhen newly-appointed Porsche MD, Peter Schutz, saved the 911 from extinction in the early 1980s, he immediately began reversing the lack of investment in model development. First new arrival was the 911 Cabriolet, the first convertible Porsche in eighteen years. Then came the 3.2 Carrera, a car that Schutz had even bolder plans for.
The 356 Speedster was an early Porsche hero. Bought in droves by young US airmen serving in Europe and brought home to America, Schutz adored the Speedster’s lightweight sports theme and wanted a 911 version. A prototype was developed in 1986, and the car was launched at Frankfurt in 1987.
The following year, Carrera 3.2 Speedsters went on sale to a rapturous reception. With most Speedsters built on the Turbo-look widebody chassis with Turbo brakes and suspension, the Speedster’s curvaceous form, with shaved windscreen and clamshell rear cover stunned onlookers, while the elegant, low-profile soft top had Porsche play a bespoke-built trump card.
Opportunities like these are few and far between and needless to say JZM are delighted to have secured this highly original time warp example for our showroom.
This Speedster is supplied with original panels and 1st paint (100% of the car)
The overall condition is quite extraordinary and fairly un-repeatable from our experience.
This one will need to be seen to be fully appreciated.
