1990 Porsche 911 Coupe 6-speed manual
This 1990 Porsche 911 looks to be a clean, if not original, specimen. It is sporting aftermarket rims and there is some question about the paint. If original, this shade of blue is not a common sight. But with the paint-to-sample option available to new Porsche buyers when ordering, it takes a review of the option code sticker to know; unfortunately, this is not provided in the gallery. Original or not, the colour does put the black interior and wheels to work as attractive complements. Not inspiring confidence is the photo-bombing body shop in the background of a few of the photos. This ad definitely invites some questions by the discriminating buyer.

The ad states that the car sits at 158,500 km, consistent with the 98,000 reading in miles on the photographed odometer. The gauges indicate that this is a US market car. In addition to the odometer tracking distance in miles, the dominant numbers on the speedometer are to indicate miles per hour; km/h numbers are much less pronounced. There is no mention of maintenance, much less any documentation to support it.
Although the write-up portion of the ad is short on details, a review of the photos shows these features: a sunroof, CD player, power windows, standard “komfort” seats, a rear wiper and a speed-activated rear spoiler. The dirty winter mats don’t do much for the car’s presentation.
Other items in the gallery which look to be add-ons after this car was delivered by the original dealer to its first owner are the rims, a nice tribute to the Fuchs of yesteryear but too large a diameter to be period-correct Fuchs; the three-spoke steering wheel, given that the ubiquitous four-spoke number was a mainstay in period 944s, 928s and 911s; and the chrome trim rings around the gauges. Aftermarket modifications are inoffensive but the Porsche purist often prefers a car as close to original as possible. We did notice in zooming in on the photos a nice set of Michelin tires, likely the Pilot Sport model.
Find this car priced at $93,000 in Thornhill, Ontario, just north of Toronto, and on Auto Trader. Thanks to CCC Founder Dave for suggesting this external listing.
