1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

We feature various editions of the 3.2 Carrera here at GCFSB, but rarely do the cars we come across have low mileage. Even the car featured here, a 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa has almost 45K miles, but for these cars that represents a decently low mileage car. The fact is that most of these cars have already eclipsed six-figure mileage because they have been driven. And why wouldn’t they be? The 3.2 Carrera is a fantastic driver’s car and for the most part prices remain within reach of a large number of buyers (at least relative to the rest of the 911 line) and so they are less likely to be locked away in a comfortable garage. The Targa tends to fit the bill even more as they are less loved than both their hard- and soft-top counterparts. The car here comes in the ever popular combination of Guards Red over Black.

The bidding has been strong on this car with nearly 30 bids and 4 days left on the auction. Current bidding has this one up to $27,400 with reserve still on and while that’s strong money for a 3.2 Carrera Targa it still represents a good price for a car with this mileage. I think I would have cleaned the interior a bit more thoroughly prior to auction, but the defects do not appear to go beyond a bit of dirt. The exterior looks quite good. Regardless, as prices on these cars come up it’s going to become more and more difficult to find quality examples without breaking the bank. This one looks great and with less than 50K miles on the clock it certainly appears to have a lot of life ahead of it!
