Collection of three narrow Speedsters from the "Jewel Collection".
For the first time, three narrow-body Speedsters are offered and represent the unique opportunity to purchase either one or the entire unique collection of narrow Speedsters. All three vehicles have been cared for and stored very extensively over the past 30 years. They come from a small exclusive collection, the so-called "Jewel Collection" consists of the rarest models in the history of Porsche. This is now exclusively available for sale at "Motorlegenden by Michael Schnabl".
Primus inter pares - the narrow 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster
There is hardly a car with so many myths and stories as there are about the Porsche 911. However, there are always models that have a special position. A rare G-Model stands out among the series-produced 911: the narrow Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster. Some are the same as the others.
A total of over 2,000 copies of the 911 Speedster were built in 1989. However, the majority of these were delivered with the wide body, as the American market demanded them at the time. After both variants were presented at the IAA, only the width should go into series production. However, orders have already been received at the fair, especially from other European countries, so these 171 Speedster models with a narrow body were manufactured in less than a year in production. There was no dealer brochure or anything else from this model, which actually shouldn't exist
LIGHTER, LESS SEATS, LESS COMFORT
As with the prototype from the 50s, the 3.2 Speedster's back seats were painted. The Speedster also had no power windows and the soft top could only be opened and closed by hand. The waiver of amenities resulted in a 70 kg lower overall weight. In contrast to the Cabriolet, the Speedster is to be understood in such a way that the closed roof is an option rather than the rule.
Due to the lower weight and the air resistance in combination with the tire dimensions, the narrow model compared to the wide version is not only the sought-after variant due to the small number of pieces, but also simply the better variant. The driving dynamics and acceleration values are significantly higher than those of the wider model brothers. So it happens that the narrow Speedster is even more valuable, rare and of course more expensive than the wider version.
The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster is already a very rare example from the G series. However, the narrow Speedster still has a special position. From the point of view of Porsche collectors, the very small number of pieces offers more potential for increasing value and the chance to own one of the rarest and most curious models in the history of Porsche.
