1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Here is the second of the 911SCs I wanted to look at, also from 1982 though this time a Targa. Frequent readers will know that I love the Targa, but I will admit this one doesn’t grab me quite the way yesterday’s Coupe did. The colors just aren’t as captivating. Still, it’s a very pretty car, even if in a more subdued palette. I think outside of my lower regard for the color combination the rest of this SC presents as all together a better package than the Coupe. I have less questions about its present state and history, which should alleviate most concerns buyers might have.

This beautiful 911SC comes with the “Porsche Certificate Of Authenticity”

Of course, the grand equalizer of these two 911s could be price. I said yesterday that I thought the Coupe was pretty well overpriced at $52K. It likely would be overpriced in pristine condition, let alone with a few flaws and questions about its history and originality. The auction for this Targa appears to bear out that thinking. Bidding currently sits at $37,100. For a 911SC Targa with just about 71K miles that seems pretty reasonable. We should expect a lower value than a similar Coupe and there are more miles on this one, but I think the relative pricing of the two shows this currently to be the better buy by a pretty good margin.

The reserve remains unmet so that price will have to rise and I think given that it’s had a single owner and appears to be well documented we should probably expect it to come up a little bit more. But I don’t think it should rise too much beyond this. Whether the seller see things similarly, we’ll have to wait and see!
