Billed as one of the rarest Porsches ever built and a must-have for every Porsche collector, Porsche Centre Gelderland in the Netherlands has listed a rare Porsche T3 Caravelle on its site. 

One of only seven examples built, the Perlmutter metallic (cream metallic) example seen here has 130 770 km on the clock. Considering the car’s construction year was in July 1988, it’s not much if you think about it. A quick calculation reveals that, until now, this T3 B32 has covered an average of 3 846 km per year since it was built. In addition, this example was specially made for former Porsche CEO AG Peter W. Schutz. 

The reason for the T3 B32’s conception was that Porsche needed a fast enough support vehicle to keep pace during its Paris to Dakar rally campaign with the 959. The T3 B32 Caravelle is powered by a Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera engine. The petrol powertrain produces 170 kW, allowing this family bus to reach a top speed of 185 km/h. 

The Porsche-powered VW bus comes with its original papers, which indicate “Porsche” and not “Volkswagen”. It is priced at €364 900, which, at the current Rand-Euro exchange rate, amounts to R6 554 822.20.
