Nicely preserved from 1987 and still looking much like its contemporaries, maybe a little less aero looking but it's a classic Porsche Carrera look with its rounded higher front quarters and the iconic rear. Plus you have the advantage of the Cabriolet option and additional jump seats in the back so take the kids along for the thrill ride. Still a fabulous car; it can only be (near) original once.
