1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

You’re really going to have to be a fan of red to like this 911. And not a subtle red; not a burgundy. Not only does this 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa sit with Porsche’s well known, and bright, Guards Red for the exterior, it also has the brightest of the reds in the interior: Can Can Red. There’s some black to break up that interior, and of course the SC Targa itself has plenty of exterior elements to set off the paint, but overall you won’t miss this one and the red definitely dominates.

I like bright red for the exterior and love red for the interior. So at least in pictures, I’m a big fan of this SC. I’d definitely want to get a sense of the colors in person though. It’s definitely a bit monochrome, but usually when I think of monochrome it’s in a more subdued color. There’s nothing subdued here.

The colors are the draw here – or at least for some of us they will be. The rest brings with it a good deal of uncertainty. We can see that the general condition of this 911 is pretty good, but a couple things stand out. First, the passenger seat looks like it’s been recovered and not necessarily to the highest standard. There’s certainly much less wear showing on the passenger seat and while that’s not uncommon in a 911 I’m guessing it’s not simply due to fewer butts in the seat. This leads us to the biggest issue: there are no records that come with the car. So we don’t know what work it’s had performed, whether we’re talking about basic maintenance or refurbishing of various aged parts. It also looks pretty low. That’s not necessarily a problem and can be easily accounted for, but again it’s more stuff that’s unclear.

With any 911 a PPI is a great idea. With this SC it’s a must. As I said, I think it looks really good and seemingly well cared for, but we just don’t know. For some the lack of records in itself will be a deal breaker. For those who might want to proceed, this 911 certainly will bring some brightness into your drives. The lack of documentation does mean the asking price is on the generally more reasonable side. Of course, it will only remain reasonable if significant servicing isn’t in its near future, so we just need to verify what sort of shape it’s in.

  1. Wasn’t this just sold on Bring a Trailer?

  2. It was, same pictures and everything, didn’t hit reserve at $32.250. I love the colour combination and am curious where the bar was set.

  3. Seller really screwed the pooch on the BaT auction… ignored questions for six days, then selectively answered a couple of them. Sort of.

    More questions, than answers with this car, IMO.

    With the Buyer’s vig, the ending price was $33,9. Now the BIN on ebay is $34,5.

    That’s just dumb business.
