This 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera left the factory in December of 1986 and was delivered new, on February 4th, 1987 to North Bay Porsche of San Rafael, California in Cassis Red Metallic over a burgundy leather interior. It has the incredibly desirable Getrag G50 5-Speed manual transmission. It came to us complete with factory books and some ownership history, so our description of the car is based on these documents, CarFax report and what we’ve experienced driving the car, a mechanical and visual inspection.
This Cassis Red Cabriolet was sold new on February 24th, 1987 by Porsche dealer #0140 in San Rafael, California to Kitti Yindiphol of Belmont, California. Then, on January 18th, 1991, Lynn Pennington of Soquel, California, purchased the car with just 15,744 miles on the odometer. Pennington kept the service advisor’s card at Bergstrom Motors of Capitola in the Service Book pouch. Documented services include the delivery inspection on Feb. 4th 1987 at 23 miles; Maintanence and Oil change on April 29th, 1987 at 1,013 miles; 15k mile service on Jan 18th 1991 at Bergstrom Motors (Porsche Dealer) with 15,744 miles; oil changes at 17,637 miles on Jan. 15th 1993 and at 19,898 miles on Oct. 22 1996; Oil Change, Vehicle Maintanence, Emissions Control Maintenance at 29,517 miles on May 1, 2001 at T&D Performance Inc. (Porsche Dealer). It was bought circa 2000 by a resident of Santa Clara, California, who then moved to Canada in 2007 and imported the car with him.
The clean CarFax report lists additional services at 21,295 miles in Ben Lomond, CA on May 22nd, 2000; and again on March 16th of 2005. On February 8th, 2006 at 36,505 miles it passed its final Emissions Inspection for the State of California before coming to Canada. The most recent service was in on May 6th of 2015 at 43,025 miles where spark plugs were replaced, brake rotors resurfaced, distributor cap/rotor replaced, fuel filter replaced, air filter replaced, and a tune-up was performed. Mileage is documented and verified.
This car retains most, if not all of it’s original books in the vinyl pouch, the Owners Manual, Service Book, USA and Canada Dealer Directory, PDI notice (hangs on rearview mirror), SmartCare guide on caring for your Anso IV Nylon floor mats, two full sets of keys including valet and wheel nut lock keys as well as door/ignition keys, tools, jack, tire iron, plastic sheet and gloves, nose bra, tonneau cover in case, and electric pump in vinyl case. A new top in correct color and weave was installed in 2006 and it shows incredibly well. The rear top cover is in great condition as is the incredibly rare optional tonneau (070).
We paint-metered this 911 Cabriolet and found every panel to be within factory tolerances and believe it is likely all original paint. There are some chips from rocks, as one would expect with a few miles on the car and very light patina elsewhere. Overall it is one of the nicest late-80’s 911 Cabriolets we’ve ever seen. This color combination is quite striking and rare. A California car from new with just three owners from new. This is a great find and a car we believe should go to an owner who will take as good care of it in preserving its originality as the past three owners have done. It wants for nothing and is missing nothing.
These late 80s 911s are increasingly desirable as they represent the last iteration of the original “911” design and model designation. The 87-89 series 3.2L cars equipped with the Getrag G50 5-Speed are the most desirable of that model type. They are excellent driving cars with plenty of power. It is rare to find a solid 911 Coupe with so much potential. Fully restored and/or well-preserved, low mileage late 1980s 911s are nearing six-digit sums. Don’t miss your chance to own a G50 Cabiolet! The last G50 Coupe we had with this kind of mileage and in original condition sold within a week of advertising.
