The car was purchased and imported into the UK shortly after delivery in 1973 by Frank Castle and had already been converted to RHD prior to Castle’s acquisition. Castle then registered the car in Hong Kong as AH882 in 1978 and was a prolific member of the Hong Kong Classis Car Club. He competed with the car in local races and events and some of the photos show the car being raced at Macau in the 1st Pacific Challenge in which it came 2nd. During its period in Hong Kong, between 1978 and 1996, that car changed hands twice being maintained by Lloyds Motors and German Motors Limited whose invoices for service and maintenance are in the detailed history file.

In 1996 the car was reimported into the UK by the then owner W.Catley who then in 2000 sold the car to Hong Kong based dealer German Motors Ltd. The car however remained in the UK and was sold to Mr J Few in 2001. It was then again sold to UK based, G.M.Harrison in 2003.

During 2007/8 the car was subject of a meticulous ground up restoration carried out by respected Porsche specialist Gantspeed. This comprised of full engine and transmission rebuilds, bare metal resprays and complete interior retrimming with 500+ photos detailing the work which was carried out. This was all carried out to a very high standard of quality and originality. Furthermore, the car was returned to its original LHD specification and colour. During the renovation the opportunity was taken to replace the front end of the car which was misaligned following earlier repairs. To this end, a new old-stock (NOS) Porsche factory front section was obtained from Manfred Freisinger in Germany and fitted by Gantspeed which the correct Porsche procedures. This whole process has been fully ratified by Porsche Cars GB Limited, Reading, who after an extremely thorough inspection officially re-stamped the original numbers into the car on completion and issued relevant documentation to confirm the complete authenticity of the car. The total cost of the restoration was £185,000. Since then, the car has seen very little use in only dry conditions covering minimal mileage since the restoration work.

In May 2014 the current owner, a lifelong and very particular Porsche collector, acquired the car. During his ownership the car has remained part of his private collection and has had minimal usage. The car has been undergone meticulous detailing which has maintained the outstanding condition.

This car with its extensive restoration work is probably presented in a better than new conditions.
