Chassis no. 91A0132539; Engine no. 6302356. Petroleum Blue over brown vinyl and brown Pasha cloth. 2994cc flat-six/180hp, 5-speed, black Fuchs wheels, Pirelli P6000 tires, Becker Traffic Pro radio.

Evaluation: Delivered new in Switzerland. Rare color and wild Pasha interior, both of which are original. Showing 108,271 km on the clock and well-kept. The paint looks excellent for the age, although the exterior plastic and wheels are a little dull. The interior looks great other than age on the steering wheel and ventilation switchgear. The weather stripping around the roof is heavily worn and has ancient-looking black tape stuck on in a couple of places. Tidy but used engine, reportedly serviced recently. It’s just an SC and it’s definitely used, but in terms of color combination this is probably the wildest-looking Porsche here, and there are a ton of Porsches here.

Bottom Line: Thirteen classic 911s, actually, plus a few more modern Porsches and a few older 356s. That was plenty to bring out the Porsche contingent to Quail Lodge, and although this car was ambitiously estimated it brought a big price despite the wear and tear. The trippy Pasha interior – offered on the 924, 928 and 911 for a few brief years – counts for a lot, but the seller should still be thrilled.
