1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Commemorative Edition

As any Porschephile knows, the marque loves to produce special edition variants, especially of the 911, to signify various milestones in the brand’s life. So when it came time for the 250,000th 911 to roll off the line, Porsche surely couldn’t let that milestone pass by without recognition. Built in 1987 as a model year 1988 car, the Commemorative Edition 911 (also referred to as the Jubilee Edition) featured Diamond Blue Metallic paint on the exterior, with matching Fuchs wheels, and a Silver Blue Metallic interior with Porsche script on the headrests. Other than a short-throw shifter, the Commemorative Edition was mechanically similar to a standard 3.2 Carrera with G50 5-speed transmission. The example featured here is a Cabriolet, located in Miami, and has seen a very reasonable 37,198 miles.

Any special edition car such as this must be verified by prospective buyers and while everything here looks in order there is one glaring deficiency. The Commemorative Edition came with a glove-box mounted plaque, which appears to be absent from this car. Obviously with a car like this originality is paramount, otherwise it’s just a Carrera, albeit in an interesting color. In the past, these cars haven’t shown much additional value over a standard 3.2 Carrera, but with the market for air-cooled 911s accelerating a relatively low-mileage example such as this one should see extra value. Whether it reaches the $52,500 asking price here, I’m not sure, but given that we’ve seen a 3.2 Carrera sell for north of $40K, it is certainly possible.
