Lot #1321 - In Porsche terms, 'Speedster' stands for a convertible with lowered roof and windshield. This car was ordered new by comedian Jerry Seinfeld with some very special factory upgrades not found on other Speedsters including special offset RS Speedline 18" wheels that cost $12,000 alone, limited slip differential, blue leather instrument surround, hand brake, and door pulls and shift knob that match the special order Maritime blue exterior paint. The car was also ordered with the "CR-1" AM/FM Stereo and full climate control with air conditioning. The car was ordered new from Porsche with an RS spec 300bhp 3.8 Liter version of the M64 engine, but since Porsche did not sell an RS spec Speedster in the US it was delivered to Andial, Porsche's US performance division, with a US spec engine along with all the factory RS parts. At Andial, Porsche Factory technicians disassembled the engine and installed the factory RS parts. The engine features Carrillo rods, RSR 3.8 Liter pistons and cylinders, 993 sport cams, modified oil pump, modified air cleaner, flowed heads with racing three angle valve seats, light weight flywheel, new EPROM, and sport exhaust. This car is in like new condition with less than 10,000 original miles.
