We’ve had a brief reprieve from the hot and humid days of summer here in the Mid-Atlantic and what better way to enjoy the sun and wind than with some open-top motoring. A Targa provides an interesting alternative for drivers who don’t care for the full convertible experience and while I’ve always been a little ambivalent towards them in general this all-black example strikes the perfect look and nearly changes my whole perspective. Here we have a Black on Black 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in Alabama, with 139,500 miles on it. The ’86 model year was the last year the 911 made use of the 915 transmission before Porsche switched to the G50 so these tend to command slightly lower values than the cars produced from ’87-’89.

You are viewing a super sharp 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa. This car has a clean title and clean Carfax report with no previous accident history. This car has just 139K miles from new and is in great shape. Here are some details,

5 speed transmission
Factory front and rear spoilers
Factory sport seats
Factory 16 inch Fuchs wheels
AM FM CD
New tune up and service
Original owners manual, tools, spare, etc.
The paint and body are in great shape. The paint appears to be original and still has great shine and depth. All of the body panels appear to be original to the car as well. All of the factory VIN number stickers and inspection stickers are still present in their original locations. The body is nice and straight too and the gaps are uniform as well. The interior is equally clean with only minor wear showing. Everything works inside but it feels like the AC could use a charge. The Fuchs wheels look great and the Targa top was redone less than two years ago and looks nice too. Overall, the car looks very nice and quite original.
Mechanically, the car is sound. The 3.2 liter motor starts easily and runs very well. It does not run hot or leak oil. It holds perfect oil pressure and pulls strong through all 5 gears. The gearbox shifts well too with no grinding or popping out of gear. The brakes and suspension feel fine and the car is really a pleasure to drive. Simply fly in and enjoy your drive home. Don’t miss our chance to own this appreciating classic Porsche.

If I were looking for a Targa this might be just the car. I love the Black on Black combination and this one has enough miles on it that it shouldn’t go for a ridiculous price. Overall it looks in good shape and should make for a good driver. I even think I could live without the G50 transmission (given that everything checks out) since it should save some money. Bidding right now sits at a very reasonable $13,100 with reserve unmet. That number will surely climb, but if this could be had for around $20,000 then someone would probably be getting an excellent car with plenty of miles left in it.
