I suppose I could have put this in Carter’s “What We’re Watching” post since there isn’t a lot of time left in this auction, but I like Carrera Targas too much and this one is pretty nice looking. Plus, the reserve on the auction is unmet so there may still be more options to get it even if this auction ends in a couple days. Regardless, here we have a Slate Grey Metallic 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in Oregon, with Linen leather interior and 66,756 miles on it. As I’ve said, Slate Grey always is one of those colors that I feel like I should say is boring – I mean, it’s grey and grey is by definition dull – but it isn’t boring. It’s beautiful in a stormy way and I think it looks really good here contrasted with the Linen interior. I can’t imagine Linen is easy to keep clean in an open-top 911, but when clean it looks pretty great. Covering the lines of this final year 3.2 Carrera Targa we end up with an attractive overall package and the end of the classic 911 line.

This Carrera comes with the typical good and bad. The good: it looks fantastic inside and out. Perhaps a step above most we come across. The paint looks great and while the interior does show some wear it doesn’t look significant. Everything is said to be, and appears to be, original. It also looks like it has quite a few service records on hand. All of that is excellent. The bad (or perhaps the uncertain): we don’t really have much here on documentation outside of those service receipts and the owner’s book. Maybe those will account for most of what we need to know. Also the ad reads funny, but that probably means nothing. “Has Never Been In Any Major Wrecks” – ok, how many minor ones has it been in?
I’m probably getting a little nit-picky with those things, but bidding on this 911 has moved up pretty well and while the price isn’t too bad it’s definitely reaching into territory where many will begin to think about looking elsewhere. At the moment it’s at $42,107 with the reserve is unmet. I don’t suspect we’re going to see that climb too much more, but you never know and we’ll have to see whether the reserve can be reached. As it stands now it looks like a nice buy.
