Sometimes collectors buy cars as works of art without even pretending to be motivated by the experience (or almost). They want to know that the car that they longed for so much in their childhood or youth is now in their possession, and that they won’t lose money by buying it. What is more, in many years the price is maintained, in others it is even increased.
The latest case we just learned about is a 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 that is literally a new car. But the new one says that 574 kilometers (with proven documents) in the last 32 years was not even enough.
His master had a plan…
Indeed, it is evident that his master did not wish to use it; if anything, he would only do a very few kilometers periodically to make everything work, if someone in his service didn’t do it for him.
And what do we know? Well, because the car still covers the seat, the first steering wheel protector, stickers on the taillights and a layer of yellow wax on the body under the car. Apparently, her owner asked her to take it out of the dealer’s factory without even giving a factory inspection to rescue her immaculate. Everything will be preserved in such a way that no one will ever enjoy 911.
320 hp and 270 km/h
The car probably also exceeded the speeds on the German roads it was designed for (registered in Germany), falling far short of 270 km/h and 5 seconds from 0 to 100. 6-cylinder boxer from 3.3 liters with 320 CV.
This 911 Turbo, belonging to the 964 generation, comes with Guards red exterior paint and black leather upholstery, and includes in its equipment a sliding differential “40”, heated seats, tinted windshield on the upper floor, electric sunroof, CD reader with charger…
A more specialized place
We do not know when this gem landed in Britain and was sold there by the writer Early911, a center specialized in classic Porsches, which only sells models with some special characteristics, which may be the configuration options, the exterior color or the mileage itself.
And they didn’t give the price, but we have an account of another Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 from 1991 (collapsing?) with only 550 kilometers, which Early911 also sold, for which they were asking; to the appearance of 330,000 coins in 2020 are counted.
It seems like a lot of money and indeed it is, if we consider that the current 911 Turbo (with 580 hp, 320 km/h top speed and 2.8 seconds for 0 to 100) costs 228,718 coins. But then again, this current 911 Turbo isn’t one that some billionaires dreamed up to drive their kids.
After all, we would like to be able to ask the first and only owner if he buys and keeps a car worth three decades. Perhaps he will tell us too, but we will be left to find out.
