Vehicle Overview

Ended on Bring a Trailer Auctions : 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Art Car by Jean-Pierre Lafrance

Contact us for any information regarding this process.

This 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe was refinished by Yves Thibeault under the direction of artist Jean-Pierre Lafrance as number two in the Art Cars Project, in which a series of artists have completed uniquely painted Porsche 911s in cooperation with the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec in Canada. Power comes from a 3.2-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle, and features include 16? Fuchs wheels, a sunroof, Mahogany leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, central locking, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo. The car was acquired by the current owner in 2013, and recent service includes changing the brake fluid. This 911 Carrera is now offered on dealer consignment in California with an Arizona title.

The oil-based custom paintwork was applied by auto-body painter Yves Thibeault, who used airbrushes, hand brushes, spray paints, markers, finger-painting, and sanding to translate Jean-Pierre Lafrance’s directives onto the car itself. The completed project is named “Masterpiece II,” and it features an abstract impressionist-inspired intermixture of bright colors against a white backdrop. Close-up photographs of the livery can be seen in the gallery below.

White 16? Fuchs wheels have custom-painted center caps, while 205/55 front and 225/50 Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires are mounted. The brake fluid was recently changed.

The cabin features seats trimmed in Mahogany leather along with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, central locking, and a Blaupunkt Reno cassette stereo. Scratches can be seen on the outer driver-seat bolster.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a central tachometer, a 170-mph speedometer, a clock, and auxiliary gauges. The speedometer was recently repaired, and the six-digit odometer shows 114k miles, less than 1k of which were added under current ownership. The Carfax report shows mileage inconsistencies in January 2011 and June 2021, and total mileage is unknown.

The 3.2-liter flat-six was rated for 217 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque when new. Recent maintenance includes an oil change and servicing the fuel injectors.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a G50 five-speed manual transaxle. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.
