Lot 100: Porsche Cabriolet

Classic Car, Motorcycle & Automobilia, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (24 June 2009)

Believe it or not, this car actually started out in life as a 1970 Porsche 911 Targa but it has had around 35,000 spent on it in the last five or six years to transform it into the machine you see today, a Porsche 993 Convertible look-alike. Apart from the floorpan, very little of the original car remains and it is now powered by a 3.2-litre Carrera engine mated to a 915 gearbox. The suspension is also from a 3.2 Carrera and the brakes have been upgraded with cross-drilled discs, bigger calipers and servo assistance. Externally it has been treated to a full 993 steel body conversion with turbo front and rear bumpers. The wheels are 18-inch split rims with new tyres all round. The interior is all to 993 spec with electric sports seats in the front and a new Clubsport steering wheel. The power hood is electrically operated. Appearing to be in very smart condition throughout, the car has a current MOT and tax and is said to drive well. Being registered as a 1970 model, it also has the added bonus of being completely free to tax...
