HIGHLIGHTS: Beautiful modern classic! 58k miles! Turn-key, turbo cruiser!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Porsche is straight and clean, and shows well. With no accident history reported via AutoCheck and the mileage being as low as it is, it is no surprise this car is as nice as it is! There are a few minor dings and nicks as shown in the photos. It even comes with a tinted roof panel!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Porsche appears to be wearing most of its original paint or else it is an older repaint, and it shows very well despite the imperfections shown. There are some normal signs of age and use, such as light scratches and rock chips, but overall the paint is in good shape. There is a cloudy area on the roof as shown in the photos. A nice, quality buff could shine it up even further!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in great original condition! Even the carpet shows well. The leather seats are in good condition, showing only normal creasing from regular use over the years and one small split at the edge of the driver's seat. The back seats are in great condition, and all door panels are nice. The headliner does have an imperfection near the back corner of the sunroof. Although an aftermarket radio is installed, the original radio and equalizer are included!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The turbocharged 2.5 liter is a great engine selection for this vehicle, and some enthusiasts would perhaps claim the only choice. While it certainly isn't a race car, this sporty little Porsche is more fun than it should be. There's something special about riding in the lap of luxury, and being able to go 0-60 in under six seconds! This Porsche runs great and the handling is tight. Minor upgrades including lowering and upgraded exhaust and sway bars.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The length of documentation going back to when it was nearly new.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're a purist for 100% factory correct cars, this isn't for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The wipers are not operational at this time.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any buyer that is looking for a clean, classy, mildly modified classic 1980s Porsche!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
