Porsche 987 Spyder

Description:

There is probably not much point in trotting out a glowing description of the 987 Spyder. Anyone who wants one probably already knows:

The lightest modern Porsche; mainly aluminium body: startling dynamics, pain in-the-butt (but only 7.5kg)  soft-top and a limited global production run of just 1900 between 2010-12. The appreciation curve already under way and given what’s happened with the 2.7RS, heaven only knows where it will lead.

This previously single-owner car was bought in 2014 at 28k miles from Official Porsche Portsmouth by former long-standing Financial Times motoring editor John Griffiths, the current owner.

 It has been kept in a heated motor house throughout ownership and used only on occasional Guild of Motoring Writers’ events, averaging a touch over 1,000 miles a year. It has a full Official Porsche Centre service history and unbroken Porsche manufacturer warranty through to March 2023.

It has a six-speed manual, obviously, and the only weight-adding specification error made when new is A/C. However, I grudgingly admit it to be sometimes welcome. There is no launch control, satnav or any other of the weight-adding nonsense. It is, in short, a purist’s car focussed entirely on its extraordinary dynamic abilities.

Sadly, it has become increasingly wasted on me as I have too many other commitments including racing historics. It is so rarely used that it is almost a crime against the car just to run it for a few miles monthly to keep things running smoothly. It deserves a more invested owner.

It’s completely unmarked and essentially indistinguishable from new. Serious enquiries only, please, and no brokers. Please also respond, in the first instance, via email or SMS.
