The Speedster. One of those (many) rare Porsche's that command a high price after low production and extreeeeemely high demand. This particular model is one of a mere 823 US-market examples produced for that year, making it a rare gem. Under the hood, it boasts an air cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine, paired with a G50 five-speed manual transaxle.

Finished in the iconic Guards Red with a contrasting black soft top, the car's exterior is a visual delight. It features the widened rear bodywork synonymous with the 911 Turbo of its time, a distinctive fiberglass twin-hump convertible-top rear deck (still used on Speedsters of today, even if the 992 hasn't been launched yet), and a shortened windscreen. The integrated fog lights, rear bumperettes, and a singular exhaust outlet further accentuate its sporty aesthetics. The car rides on staggered-width 16″ Fuchs wheels, shod in Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires, big for its time... but now standard on a mid range Kia. How times change.

Inside, the cabin exudes luxury with seats upholstered in sumptuous Cashmere leather. The interior, devoid of rear seats, is a nod to the Speedster's sporty lineage. It comes equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, cruise control, a Blaupunkt cassette stereo, and an optional short-throw shifter. The VDO instrumentation, with its central tachometer and a range of gauges, provides the driver with all the necessary information at a glance.

Having clocked only 11k miles, this Speedster has been meticulously maintained. Recent services include a comprehensive fluid change, belt replacements, and updates to the braking system. The car's provenance is further solidified with a Porsche Classic Technical certificate, a clean Carfax report, and a clear California title. These are rare, beautiful and exotic. Weirdly, not crazy expensive though - likely 100,000-150,000$.
