BaT Auction: 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo

This 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo is finished in black over black partial leather and was optioned from the factory with powered sport seats, a limited-slip differential, and an electric sunroof. The numbers-matching turbocharged 3.3-liter flat-six is mated to the original 4-speed manual gearbox, and records document a top-end rebuild and engine reseal in 2016. 17” Fuchs-style wheels and a 3-spoke sport steering wheel have been installed along with window tint. Now showing just under 75k miles, this 911 Turbo is being offered by the selling dealer with some records from the last few years, a Porsche CoA, a clean Carfax report, and a clear Ohio title.
