Smile NOS 1988 Turbo -- Slantnose Cabriolet with 2,397 miles

Here's something we rarely see, and proof that yes, we do work on stock Porsches, too:

Nearly 100% original 1988 Slantnose Cabriolet with only 2,397 miles.

Totally stock engine, rubber hoses still have the waxy film on them, underside still has cosmoline oversprayed everywhere.
Totally stock interior, no visible wear.
The tires still have the little molding threads on them.
Factory painted Fuchs look like new, beautiful paint on the inside of the rim, little supports for the valve stems.

It's a time capsule! We're excited to work on it.

The only thing that we can see has been changed is the prior owner installed KYB rear shocks. We're guessing he complained it rode harshly, this the cheapest 911-compatible shocks available... They'll be replaced with correct green Bilsteins.

Like many 911s that are essentially never driven, it developed drips once started again and warmed up, plus the turbocharger was spitting a little oil. The current owner trailered it in for service:
- a new stock turbocharger
- replace any suspect seals and gaskets, even if it means dropping the engine (ex: RMS)
- correct Bilstein rear shocks
- anything else needed to otherwise put it in tip-top shape, make it ready for sale
