Porsche recently expanded its Exclusive Manufaktur program to keep up with demand for personalized cars. The brand has taken customer requests for nearly 70 years, but these builds were relatively uncommon until recently, and older one-off cars are consequently rare. If you're in the market for a one-of-a-kind air-cooled 911, there's a 1990 Carrera 4 with unique options crossing the auction block in June 2023.

The coupe is part of the Porsche 75th Anniversary sale that Broad Arrow Auctions is hosting at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Numerous high-dollar classics are scheduled to cross the auction block, including a 2005 Carrera GT and a 1964 904 Carrera GTS, but the 964-generation 911 Carrera 4 caught our eye because it's finished in an unusual and attractive color combination. It wears Paint-to-Sample Green Pearlescent Metallic paint over a Leather-to-Sample green interior with burgundy inserts on the seats and wood trim.

Broad Arrow Auctions reports that this 911 was sold new in Germany, first registered in the town of Böblingen, and owned by Porsche from 1990 to 1993. It adds that this very likely explains the color combination and the relatively long list of features this car was ordered with, and that the Böblingen registration isn't as trivial as it seems: That's where many special, factory-owned cars have historically been registered. It's equipped with an Exclusive center console, a car phone, air conditioning, power-adjustable front seats, cruise control, and air conditioning, among other features. The various option codes are handwritten in the owner's manual, which underlines this car's special status.
