I’m going to stick a little longer with the 911SC for today’s post. Unlike yesterday’s feature and its somewhat audacious interior, this Black Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, with black interior and 65,933 miles on it, is a bit more standard, yet in none the less nice looking condition. Though it is less rare than yesterday’s color combination – even if Black Metallic is more rare than a standard Black exterior – I expect this one will be the more desirable of the two. Collector appeal will be lower, but I’m not really sure collectors are paying significant attention to the 911SC in general so that issue shouldn’t affect things too severely. The 911SC remains a great option for those hoping for a classic 911 to drive, so we shouldn’t let lower collector appeal influence our assessment of its merits.

There are a lot of nice qualities to this 911SC and my criticisms remain somewhat standard. The statement about the mileage (“believed to have only 65,933 actual miles”) suggests to me that there isn’t a lot of history that comes with the car. That’s always going to hold back any prospective buyers. Precisely what sort of documents are available will be key. We’re told it has been well maintained and that servicing is up to date so perhaps that means service records are available. Otherwise, I really like the look of this one. The color is attractive and provides a slight divergence from the standard black. Sport seats are always a nice touch and everything looks in good shape inside and out. Outside of the radio and the front spoiler it appears original as well. All of that brings with it a good bit of optimism.
Bidding hasn’t really gotten going much as only one bidder has entered the action, which leaves bidding sit at $38,500. Given the potential lack of documentation that actually seems like about where I’d think this Targa should sell so the price in itself isn’t too bad. That said, the reserve is unmet so the seller is looking for more. Will it get there?
