/ 1987 911 Carrera coupe, Black/Champagne, 97k. miles
Ordered by The Porsche Exchange for a local Doctor, he requested M-158
Blaupunkt Monterey radio (since upgraded), M-220, Locking Differential,
M-341 Central locking system, M-395 Fuchs 16" alloy wheels, M-454 Cruise
Control, M-473 Carrera Spoilers Front and Rear, M-473 Power Drivers
Seat, M-633 Alarm system (Integrated w/ central locks), M-650 Electric
sliding Sunroof, and C0-2 US Federal Emissions equipment.
He further instructed them to paint it with L700 Black for the exterior,
while specifying interior leather and trim to be Champagne in color,
with carpets deviated to Black in order match the stunning exterior.
Back in 1987, it was a very well thought out list of options and colors,
and has proven to be the most desirable combination to date!
He continued ownership of his precious Carrera through the years, moving
to Nevada, California, and finally back to Illinois, when in 2005 at
94k. miles, he sold it to an executive in Florida. The second owner was
no less diligent in his efforts to preserve this classic Carrera
coupe... Being the Director of Fleet Maintenance for a large Automobile
Rental Company, he continued to see to its every need, while preserving
it's honest originally.
Recently he thoroughly rebuilt the braking system...Completely
rebuilding and refinishing the calipers, while replacing the vented
rotors, and brake pads. It was quite a professional job, and he choose
to finish the calipers in black with the Porsche logo in white, similar
to the factory 930 cars.
We have just had our local Porsche-Guru, Heistand Automotive, complete
any needed servicing...They replaced hood and deck struts, the heater
blower motor, the idle control stabilizer, then purged the r-12 from the
A/C system, converting the air conditioning to r-134a, replaced the
tires, tuned it, and did a full emissions and inspection certification.
It has truly been kept up while maintaining its originality, if fact,
we've been hard pressed to find much deviation from stock, other than an
upgrade to Bilstein Sport shocks, a stainless sport muffler that
emulates the 930 turbo cars, and an upgraded radio.
Now she's ready for a new caretaker...Are you ready to enjoy driving one
of Porsche's most iconic cars ever?
