1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

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.

Raspberry 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

Raspberry 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

I suppose it should go without saying that this 911 will not appeal to everyone. But it’s very rare and very rare tends to get our attention. This is an unrestored Raspberry 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in California, with 71,500 miles on it. I have never seen Raspberry on any Porsche. It’s a ’70s color and finding it on a Carrera Targa doesn’t surprise me one bit. That it is on a Carrera Targa simply adds to the mystique though. I come across the 2.7 Carrera Coupes with decent regularity, but not the Targa. The Targa I don’t see often and while that would normally suggest we should expect a higher price, it doesn’t usually work out that way. The Targas generally are in less demand. The demand for this Raspberry-colored Targa may even be lesser still, but for the buyer really looking for a uniquely colored Carrera, I think you’ll find this one hard to pass up.

Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa in Raspberry (N8) with Black interior. 71,500 miles with one owner. Equipped with factory air conditioning. This is a US Carrera Targa. Chassis numbers run from 911541 – 001 to 0174. This is number 121 out of 174 built. Original matching engine (#6451817). Original owner stored it for 15 plus years, on 10/14 he gave it to European Autowerks in Palos Hills IL to get it up and running. The bill was around $13k – with receipts. It runs and drives nicely but I find the clutch heavy and 3rd gear whiny.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa

I think by this point it should be pretty clear that I’m a big fan of the 911 Targa. I really like the versatility between open-air and closed cockpit and generally find the aesthetics to be more appealing than with a comparable Coupe or Cabriolet. On the classic 911 design the Targa roll-hoop provides a nice contrast and break in the design that I find very appealing. That’s particularly true on long-hood models. With its reintroduction for the 991 the Targa is easily my favorite. The 964 always has been a little different. The sweeping changes in design from the 3.2 Carrera don’t seem to look as good to me even though the 964 retains so much of the classic 911 look. It just doesn’t look as fluid.

Yesterday I chanced upon a 964 Targa on the street. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen one in person. My sense of it changed, though only some. It looked better in person than I remembered. I still prefer the earlier Targas and prefer the look of the 964 Coupe over the Targa, but the gap has narrowed. But I was thinking about that Targa after coming across this Targa: a Grand Prix White 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa, located in Arizona, with 60,342 miles on it. Maybe I’ll come around on the design even more!

1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

Time to return to one of my favorite conundrums: the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0. Never made available for the U.S. market and produced in fairly small numbers worldwide, the Carrera 3.0 followed on the heels of the European Carrera 2.7 MFI. That car has amassed a decent following and commands strong value because of its close relationship to the 911 Carrera RS Touring. The Carrera 3.0, which lacks the 2.7 liter engine of the RS, has failed to achieve such regard. Its own engine possesses some cachet through its relationship to the iconic 930 Turbo, but I think most are just as likely to associate it with the later 911SC. Granted, a Carrera 3.0 isn’t exactly cheap, but relative to its predecessors it comes in at quite the value. The example here is restored and has higher mileage but in its current condition it looks quite good.

1981 Porsche 911SC Targa

1981 Porsche 911SC Targa

I love coming across a high mileage 911 in good condition. Seeing a car that has provided so many joyous miles to its owners, yet that still looks as good as other cars with significantly fewer miles always makes me smile. Its past will hold stories and experiences, of going places, seeing things, and visiting people, which are the hallmark of our love for motoring. A pristine garage queen has its place. They are like pieces in a museum serving as representations of a previous era. But the well worn examples are more fun and dare I say more interesting. Here we have one of those well-worn cars: a triple black 1981 Porsche 911SC Targa, located California, with 202,639 miles on it. Of course, even 200K miles doesn’t equate to a lot of mileage on a yearly basis when looking at a 36-year-old car, but still we don’t see too many 911s on the market with this many miles and regardless of how many of those miles were covered each year, they were still traveled.

1971 Porsche 911E Targa Sportomatic

1971 Porsche 911E Targa Sportomatic

I’ve been coming across a lot of interesting Sportomatics lately. None will top the one-year-only SWB Soft-window Sportomatic for its combination of cool features. And the beautiful ultra-low-mileage Signal Orange Sportomatic was possessive of an entirely different allure. Those two were, for good reason, very high priced as Sportomatics go. This one, a paint-to-sample Red Metallic 1971 Porsche 911E Targa, is priced more reasonably and even comes with a pretty interesting history having begun its life as an Italian police vehicle.

1971 Porsche 911E Targa Sportomatic

This vintage 1971 Porsche 911 “E” model has been in my family for 40+ years. Priced to sell. I’m looking for a good owner for the car. Please don’t make any significant bids without contacting me first. Rare opportunity to secure a clean and dry vehicle that is running and well maintained.

HERITAGE

This car was originally a police detective vehicle in Italy. Exported to the USA in 1975 where it was purchased by my late father.

This car is in excellent running condition. Starts with ease, idles steady, and sounds beautiful. The Sportomatic transmission shifts like a dream, no grinding, expertly rebuilt two years ago. The motor has excellent acceleration and power and is extremely a joy to drive. The brakes have strong initial bite, no fading, no pulling.

This car features the highly coveted original Recaro Sports seats and rear window wiper, both were considered options off the assembly line.

Original Fuch wheels restored by Harvey Weidman in 2006.

No issues of rust and/or corrosion throughout any area of the vehicle.

The rubber and seals are in excellent condition.

1978 Porsche 911SC Targa

1978 Porsche 911SC Targa

I won’t slow play this: at the first sight of the thumbnail featuring this 911 my first words were, “Wow!” My hope as I looked further was that everything else I saw would continue that sense of elation. I was not disappointed. Earlier in the week I featured a very pretty 997 Carrera 4 in a fairly similar shade of burgundy. It’s an elegant looking car and given its price shows the sort of value we can find with a modern 911. Here I guess we could say we have the classic version of that 911: A Wine Red Metallic 1978 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in Santa Barbara, with fantastic Cork interior and 77,501 miles on it. The price actually is higher than that of the 997, but the mileage is a good bit lower and its long-term value probably a bit more secure. Still, it’s not priced badly at all.

Offered for sale is an very clean, mechanically strong, first year, 77k original mile 1978 Porsche 911SC Targa finished in Wine Red Metallic, a wonderfully era-specific livery that reads anywhere from Burgundy to Copper depending on the light. A perfect finish for this car’s already vintage styling cues (polished wheel rims, door handles and Targa bar), it’s also beautifully accented by the Cork leather interior, defining an example that evokes early 911 visuals while offering reliable 3.0L mechanicals and superior ride quality. Driven relatively sparingly throughout its 39 years of service, this beautiful example has always been well cared for, garaged and used only in favorable weather, exhibiting no evidence of rust or rust repair with an entirely original undercarriage.

Paint-to-Sample 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo with 717 miles

Paint-to-Sample 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo with 717 miles

This is a car that will press many of us to ask, “Why?” The 964 Turbo is a favorite of many, whether it be one of the original 3.3 liter Turbos or the later 3.6 liter Turbo that raised the performance bar even further. These were the last standard Turbos Porsche produced with rear-wheel drive as all-wheel drive became the norm beginning with the 993. That makes them quite special and one of the 911s most capable of providing a thrilling, rewarding, and white knuckle experience for its drivers. To not take advantage of those capabilities by actually driving the darn thing tends to ruffle the feathers. That is the case with the Turbo we see here. I think we can see the impulse that got us here – this is a well-optioned and unique 911 intended for a collector – but it still rankles. Oh well.

That (massive) negative out of the way this really is a pretty unique opportunity and while it’s difficult to be certain whether a particular car is the lowest mileage available, we can feel pretty confident that this one is close. Also, its absurdly low mileage is not its only selling point. Here we have a paint-to-sample Pearl White Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Texas, with Black interior and a scant 717 miles on it. A tour through the pictures will reveal many of the other options added to this 911.

1968 Porsche 911 Soft-window Targa Sportomatic

1968 Porsche 911 Soft-window Targa Sportomatic

This might be the quirkiest 911 I could feature. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way, but rather in the way it utilizes a number of early and short-lived technologies and combines them all in one package. Here we have a Tangerine 1968 Porsche 911 Soft-window Targa, located in California, with 59,589 miles on it. Rather than the standard 5-speed manual transmission it is equipped with Porsche’s 4-speed Sportomatic transmission, the first year the marque would offer their attempt at producing something like the clutchless manually-shiftable automatic transmissions so prevalent today. In that regard, while the Sportomatic eventually disappeared, and rarely was favored while it existed, it did serve as a prelude to what was to come. The Soft-window Targa is a different story: around for only a few years and quickly replaced with the hard window version with which we are all familiar. The ability to open the rear window while keeping the top in place provided extra versatility, but it became clear pretty quickly that most owners weren’t much interested in that versatility.

I have never come across a 911 that combined these two interesting pieces of Porsche engineering and I don’t suspect we will find many of them that do.

Ossi Blue 1969 Porsche 912 Targa

Ossi Blue 1969 Porsche 912 Targa

I have somewhat dueling interests in this Ossi Blue 1969 Porsche 912 Targa. I’m hoping we can return to some sanity in the 912 market; to find those examples that remain reflective of the nice values for which the 912 previously had been known. In their day these were great cars to drive capable of even rivaling their more prestigious bigger brother, the 911. Early reports actually suggested they were better handling given their more balanced weight distribution. Among modern machinery a 912 isn’t likely to knock your socks off, but their no-frills light weight still should be capable of providing hands-on joy. My other interest is in how the 912 market is about to shake out and whether we are suddenly going to see more interesting examples come up for auction. The reason? Last weekend this Bahama Yellow 912 sold for over $114K. It was a somewhat stunning sale.

1970 Porsche 911E Targa

1970 Porsche 911E Targa

This 911 was always bound to attract my attention. It’s a Targa covered in a vibrant shade of blue and it looks in very nice shape; points that immediately serve in its favor for me. It’s also a 911E, which I’ve always liked as a middle ground between the entry-level T and the very sought after 911S. Step inside and what looks like a fairly basic interior suddenly makes me pause. First, this is probably the ugliest steering wheel I’ve ever seen. No big deal really; throw a Prototipo on (or find a period-correct wheel if originality is your concern) and move along. Then I notice there’s no radio. The ad makes no mention of a radio delete. We aren’t presented with the CoA so that doesn’t help. Now I’m intrigued and want to know more. Is this just a matter of a restorer deciding to remove the radio or is there something more to this 911E?

This is the vintage exotic so many of us long for. A 1970 Porsche 911E Targa offers many of the delicate design touches of the first-generation 911, and then adds power to the package. So when it’s presented in an interesting and correct factory color, this is an open top dream car.

The 911’s shape is legendary, and that’s why there is so much appreciation for a car like this. The narrower bodies, tidy proportions, and elegant simplicity showcase the iconic shape in its purest form. Porsches have always been high-quality machines, and this one continues that tradition today with doors that open and close effortlessly and exacting panel gaps.

1983 Porsche 911SC Targa

1983 Porsche 911SC Targa

For a while it seemed like I was coming across and featuring interesting examples of the 911SC every week. Sometimes more than one. Whether they were particularly rare examples or just nice looking options at reasonable prices, we could find a 911SC with ease. And to a degree the finding of them has not changed; there are always a good number available. But the features have slowed as for one reason or another they fail to catch my eye.

So let’s return to my perennial favorite: the 911SC Targa. I will freely admit that this is a fairly standard example and as such might be just the type I’d ignore. It’s triple black, which many like but some find boring, so it isn’t necessarily the most rare or interesting option out there. But it does look in nice shape and with a full documented engine rebuild it now sits in the sort of condition that should allow for it to return to providing the reliable and fun driving that has long been the draw to these classic 911s.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Targa

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Targa

I have featured a 964 Carrera 4 previously – quite frequently actually. As the first model Porsche released for its substantial redesign of the 911, the Carrera 4 is a not uncommon visitor for us. I have also frequently featured the 964 Targa, because I like Targas and it’s interesting to keep an eye on what was the last of the original Targa design prior to its change for the 993. However, I’m not sure I have ever featured the model that combines the two: a 964 Carrera 4 Targa. That seems strange to me if it is indeed the case. Of the standard Carreras the Targa was produced in far fewer numbers relative to the Coupe and Cabriolet, and with only 1,329 total the Carrera 4 Targa saw the lowest production numbers of the bunch. So some of it is strictly a numbers game. But I still find it strange. Regardless, let’s take a look at one of these rare visitors to our pages with this Black 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Targa, located in New York, with 81,041 miles on it.

1977 Porsche 911S Targa

1977 Porsche 911S Targa

I’ve found myself featuring more and more of the mid-year 911. I still don’t feature them all that often relative to other model years, but I used to never feature any model other than the Carrera so there is some progress. In part, I think this is due to more interesting examples being made available. I suspect that has occurred because, while these are still some of the cheaper models in the air-cooled 911 range, we’ve actually seen a few nice examples sell for values that at the time I found surprising. It’s still rare that it happens, but some of the neglect has waned. This all brings us to the car here: a Burgundy Metallic 1977 Porsche 911S Targa with Cork leather interior and 168,074 miles on it. That’s a lot of miles (though not necessarily for the age), but given that it’s been fully restored I’m not sure that mileage should be overly concerning. It will affect value though.

We’re approaching the winter auction season when we’ll see a few of the bigger auctions take place and I always find it interesting to take a look at some of the cars crossing the auction blocks during this part of the year. In some cases these auctions will set the stage for market shifts that we’ll see over the course of the coming year, and in almost all cases we’re likely to see cars that we see almost nowhere else. Such as the example here: a Jade Green 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa with Cinnamon interior and 58,949 miles on it.
