Carrera 3.0 (RHD) 5 speed manual - First registered 10/03/1976 by Fitzpatrick Motors Ltd for the business owner, John Fitzpatrick, arguably one of the most successful Porsche racers of his generation.....Original service book has been signed by John in 2016. Forty years later he remembered the car !

Particularly rare, purportedly one of less than 121 UK RHD Coupes to be registered in the UK during the two years of Carrera 3.0 production, namely 1976 / 77. This factory non sport model was ordered in Grand Prix White with Black leatherette / Green Dress Tartan inlays. Presented in Concours condition and benefiting from a breathtaking paintwork/body restoration by Premier Panel Skills as recently as 2016 at a cost of £22,720.51 (Porsche Approved Bodyshop and winner of the National Body and Paint Competition held by Porsche in 2014 and again in 2016). Premier worked in conjunction with Jeff Moyes, (well known in Porsche circles for the depth of his knowledge in working with classic Porsche cars) for the duration of the restorative work. The upshot, a blemish, rust free and wholly correct Carrera 3.0 and by some margin, the nicest example of it's type we've seen.

An invoice supported and exhaustive service history dating from the seventies through until present day accompanies the car and supplements the original Guarantee and Maintenance Record. Supplied with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirming optional equipment to be as follows :-

Rear Wiper, heated front window, Alloy wheels 7x15 - front and 8x15- rear (petals painted Dark Platinum and recently refurbished by Fuch themselves in Stuttgart), 5 speed gearbox, light for engine compartment and sunroof.

In recent years the car has been maintained by well regarded specialists Jaz. We've spoken to Jaz at length about this vehicle and like us, they rate it highly. The most recent service has just been carried out by Jaz in February 2019.

A large file of supporting invoices complete with a bound photographic record of the aforementioned bodywork and DVLA archive check complete with copies of every registration document from the first to the last.
