A right hand drive UK supplied example of Porsche’s iconic Turbo model finished in the great colour scheme of Baltic Blue with Linen full leather and with a great specification including air conditioning, electric sunroof, heated partial electric sports seats and sound pack. We first purchased the car in 2007 and have supplied it to each subsequent owner. It is in very good condition and has a full and comprehensive history from new.
This 1988 model year Turbo was supplied when new by Porsche dealer Chariots of St Albans on the 26th September 1987 to a Mr Hennessy Thompson of Welwyn Garden City. He retained the car until July 1989 when no doubt tempted by the sizeable premium on the list price at this time, he sold it to a Mr Paul Connolly. The bill of sale on file confirms the mileage at this time to be 16,783 miles. It also states that the car was totally original with no damage repairs.
Mr Connolly sold the car to his brother, John, in October 1991. He in turn retained it until December 1999 when it was purchased by a Porsche enthusiast based in Devon. Correspondence on file confirms the superb condition of the car and the mileage at 48,211 miles.
We first purchased the Porsche from this owner in 2007 at which point it had covered 66,000 miles. The car remained in great and very original order and had a full service history – we had the car checked and serviced by Dick Lovett the Porsche main dealer in Swindon who had maintained the car since 2000. We then sold the car quickly to a regular and loyal customer who then part exchanged it with us the following year. Once again we offered the car and sold it quickly to a customer who retained it until we repurchased it last year.
During this ownership the car was maintained by the now sadly departed Porsche guru Bob Watson. Substantial invoices and correspondence on file detail the extensive maintenance and additional work completed including gearbox rebuild, top end engine rebuild and suspension overhaul – any area found wanting was addressed.
We repurchased the car from this last owner in the summer of 2015 and sent it straight to Dick Lovett for a full inspection and service, invoicing on file amounting to £4,500 details the work completed.
We now once again offer this super Porsche for sale. An inspection, service and new MOT have just been completed once again by Dick Lovett, the Porsche Centre in Swindon. The Turbo remains in excellent condition throughout and drives exceptionally well belying the 75,000 miles recorded. It comes with all books, tools and a substantial history file.
