The Hodinkee founder Ben Clymer has taken to Bring a Trailer to auction off his 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe five-speed for a good cause, donating 10% of the sale’s proceeds to UNICEF in light of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

Clymer’s car in question is a Rest of the World (RoW) example made for the German market and sold in Japan, before being imported to the United States five years ago. As such, the “Silver Metallic” over “Marine Blue” partial-leather upholstery with multi-color “Studio Check” cloth seating 911 is fitted with desirable options such as 17” Carrera Cup wheels, RS-style front brake cooling ducts, aero-style mirrors, and a Porsche Classic Radio with Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Elsewhere, the rear wing is speed-deployable, which we suspect will pop up often if the new owner intends to use the car’s 3.6-liter flat-six often and well. It was rated at 247 HP and 228 lb-ft of torque when, but thanks to a range of light updates and refreshments it’s expected the car still performs perfectly.

This clean Porsche is listed on Bring a Trailer with five days of bidding left. As of writing, the car is sitting at $120,000 USD.

In case you missed it, take a closer look at the Toyota GR Corolla Circuit Edition.
