M030 Koni Suspension
Stainless Exhaust
Wind Deflector

Supplied on 15.04.1999 by HR Owen Porsche in London. This car has a unique specification and
excellent service records. It has been maintained by recognised and respected professionals and is
a very attractive example that is a wonderful open top drive. A file of history accompanies including
the original bill of sale, order form and spec sheets.

Unique Leather Specifcation - £18,000 Extras
The original bill of sale is within the file. Base price for this model in 1999 was £74,649. This particular
car was £92,493. That's near £18,000 in optional extras. Glancing over the car you would initially
struggle to see where this extra money has gone, but look a little closer and it soon becomes obvious.
Everything is covered in the finest leather. Everything! Well, nearly everything.. items that you never
thought could be covered with leather, each have a skillfully hand crafted skin of fine nappa. It beggers
belief some of it.. the seat switches, air vents and air vents slats (yes the slats!), cd tray and each
individual cd drawer, the wing mirror control panel and it's little L/R select switch - and the little joystick
too! The upper centre console and framework, entire chairs including the levers, all switches surrounds,
all the speaker grills and sun visors, steering wheel shroud and the wheel itself is an optional "thicker
steering wheel with leather centre".
Aside all the leather (there is much more, it's all in the list below) the spec continues with heated seats
air conditioning, sliver centre tunnel, silver dials, leather trimmed carpets mats, 18" Sport design alloys,
litronic (xenon) headlights, memory seats with soft draped leather, aluminum handbrake lever and
gearshift..the list goes on and on and on!! It's all noted below.. This must be the largest list of options we
have seen on a build sheet.

C4 or C2
This is the rarer and desirable 4 wheel drive car with manual gearbox and a classic colour scheme to
be found in superb used condition. In 4 wheel guise the vehicle is utterly planted and when the
weather turns foul it soaks it up.
As a drivers car I personally prefer the 4 over the 2 in that the slight extra weight lends a more balanced
feel to the front end which is likely to wander at higher speeds in the 2wd car.

The coach work is superb with minimal marks & little in any way that belies its age. Everything is
working order as Porsche intended. The coach work presents remarkably well with gleaming paint
work, and level panels that are free from dings and it presents with a depth of shine having being highly
detailed. All factory labels present the most important of which being the white label on underside of the
bonnet. Only stone chips to note.

Stunning highly appointed Carrera. The combination of convertible and Tiptronic works really well, makes
it an ideal touring car and one better suited to traffic situation's. Having owned many manuals and tips I
can say that I prefer the Tip, this only comes with experience though. The exhaust sounds wonderful and
brings the engine to life, the standard system is undramatic. Buy a good one now while they are still
