3.2 Preservation: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa & 1988 911 Carrera Coupe

When it comes to classic, air-cooled 911s, the sky is the limit when it comes to choice. From Turbos to Targas, early SWBs variants to kitted out Sonderwunsch models, there’s a 911 for everyone. My favorite is the 3.2 Carrera. My first 911 experience was behind the wheel of a 1984 Carrera Coupe as a teenager. To this day, that drive is still vivid in my mind. You can still find good, driver quality 3.2s out there for reasonable sums, but to get a choice example, expect to shell out a lot more. The following two 3.2s are of the latter group, low mileage examples that are fit for a concours. First up is this 1986 Targa for sale in California.

1979 Porsche 911SC Targa

Paul’s recent post on $20K Porsches grabbed my attention a bit and got me thinking. As I was perusing the classifieds I came across this car and thought, “What if Paul’s idea was taken one step further?” Rather than an inexpensive Porsche that’s in good shape and ready to drive, what about going a bit less expensive for a car that needs minor work, though isn’t something we might use for the Heap of the Week? Such is the case with this car, a 1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa located in Miami.

10K Friday: Poor Man’s Porsches – 914 v. 924

While I’ve spent a lot of time on 10K Fridays looking for the most car for your money, today we’re going to take a different path and look at the least Porsche for your money. Sound a bit strange? Well, while other Porsche models have taken off in value or are on the verge of being completely unaffordable, it’s refreshing to know you can still get a nice quality Porsche on a budget. Could you get into a beaten 944 Turbo for this money? Yes, and perhaps if you’re looking for a performance car that would be a better choice. But in the true spirit of the creation of both the 914 and 924, I want to look at the most simple versions of both of these cars. Which would be the one for you? Let’s start with the 914:

Year: 1972
Model: 914
Engine: 1.7 liter flat-4
Transmission: 4-speed manual

1972 914 porsche from california new tires fuel injected very rust free for more info call dennis 847 521 9442

I have to admit, I’m a more recent convert to thinking clean 914s are pretty cool. They’re not the most attractive by any measure, but they have a Lotus-like simple design. Think of this car as the Porsche Europa and it makes a little more sense. Pop the top and you’ve got a fun, simple targa design. This model has some upgraded alloys and looks reasonably clean. Miles are lower and the price – $7,500 – wouldn’t get you into much of any other Porsche; that is, except the underdog 924:

The 924 is such a clean and elegant design, it’s nice to see them in their original spec.…

1990 Porsche 911 C2 & 1991 Porsche 911 C2 Targa

The Porsche 964 is just starting to hit its stride in the market, keeping pace with other desirable late model air-cooled 911s. They were a bargain for a while, but with a flood of water-cooled 996 models hitting the used market, the older stock has witnessed a readjustment in value. Today we have two 964s for sale, both with 5-speed manual gearboxes in two different flavors: coupe and Targa. First, we’ll take a look at this Guards Red coupe for sale in Arizona.

2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

Time for something a little more modern. While I love a classic 911 there is little doubt that in terms of performance a newer model provides more value. With more than 300 hp coming from their water-cooled flat-6 a bone-stock base 996 or 997 will easily outperform many of the best classic 911s. A 996 is generally a better value, but with a 997 you get a more aesthetically pleasing design along with a bit more power. Upgrade to the 4S seen here and the 3.8 liter flat-6 provides 355 hp for the all-wheel drive system to distribute to the road. These cars are quick, refined, and handle very capably. A well-maintained example will have years of driving pleasure ahead of it, which brings us to the car featured here: a Guards Red 2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S located in Salt Lake City.

1983 Porsche 911SC Targa

With prices for a classic 911 consistently on the rise, these days it’s rare that I come across a clean example that is on auction with no reserve. But that’s exactly what we have with this 1983 Porsche 911SC Targa located in Ohio. The 911SC remains one of the best values along the 911 lineage, combining reasonable buying costs with classic styling and a near bullet-proof engine. The car featured here has the 204 hp 3.0 liter flat-6 that Porsche introduced for the 1981 model year and comes in a fairly unique color combination with a gold exterior surrounding a chocolate brown leather interior. We’ve featured a couple of 911SCs recently that each failed to hit their asking price, so this no reserve auction should at least provide us a window into the current market.

This is a NO RESERVE listing.

This is my 1983 Porsche 911 SC Targa in superb mechanical and cosmetic condition. This Targa has been owned for the past 12 years by an automotive engineer and NASCAR mechanic. The maintenance and service this car has received is second to none. The car is in outstanding mechanical condition and it needs no mechanical work.

This is simply one of the greatest sports cars in automotive history. Porsche got it “just right” with these 3.0L SC models. 1983 was the last year for the SC, and it had the most powerful engine (204 hp vs 172 hp in the earlier cars) with the best available features. The 3.0 engine is known as one of the most reliable Porsche engines ever built- with many of them going over 300,000 miles before a major rebuild.

2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

It seems there are more varieties of 911s than days of the month, but it wasn’t always this way. Some models have come and gone, but one variant that has been a mainstay is this one: the Targa. Somewhat overshadowed by the introduction of the SC Cabriolet in 1983, the Targa has evolved throughout the years, starting as a 911 with a roll hoop and soft top rear section. The soft top gave way to a fixed glass window and was replaced by a large, sliding glass panel in 1996 on the 993. The subsequent generations have stayed true to this sliding glass panel concept, as we see here with this 2007 Targa 4S for sale in Iowa from our friends at EuroWerkz.

1997 Porsche 911 Targa

The 911 Cabriolet, like the one we featured yesterday, is a popular choice for those seeking a little bit of an edge to their open air motoring. Since 1983, Porsche has been offering up this variant to sun chasers, but one open air 911 has been with us even longer. That model is the Targa. Introduced early on in the 911’s history, the original model had a roll hoop with a removable hard roof over the driver and front passenger and a folding soft top rear section. This gave way to a fixed, wraparound glass rear window a few years down the road.

With the introduction of the 993, Porsche changed the Targa formula a bit and introduced a sliding glass roof panel that disappeared inside the cabin, lending a bit more structural rigidity to the package. Some buyers viewed it as a big sunroof, others saw it as an improvement in all-weather versatility over the outgoing Targa model. Not a lot of these 993 Targas were sold, as most favored either the Coupe or Cabriolet instead of this in between model. This Targa for sale in Alexandria, Virginia caught my eye, due in large part to the replica Porsche Cup wheels.

1982 Porsche 911 SC

As the saying goes, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” and that describes the story behind this 911 SC to a tee. Bought as a gift for his wife, the seller of this car quickly found out that he should have shopped at Tiffany, when his wife decided she needed a car that was easier to drive while sipping a latte.

Introduced in 1978, the 911 SC featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. With 204 bhp, razor sharp handling, and the distinct styling, the 911 SC has become a favorite in the Porsche lineup.

This low mileage Guards Red over black stunner for sale in Tucson, Arizona exemplifies what a 911 SC should be.

1982 Porsche 911 SC on eBay

I bought this awesome Porsche for my Fiancé as a Birthday/Wedding gift last month from a reputable broker. She drove it for a few miles and decided that she would rather have an automatic one! Are you kidding me?

Reason, I asked? Quote “I can’t hold my Starbucks!!” Are you kidding me?

So, here is an absolutely drop dead gorgeous, 1982 Porsche 911SC that is in very nice condition inside and out. This is a totally solid low mileage car that is a blast to drive. It is a very clean, unmolested car that has been very well kept over the years. This Targa is number 243 of only 2,426 vehicles imported for the US market in 1982. This car has lived in Arizona since 1994 and was bought new in December of 1981 at Lee Klinger Porsche Audi in Highland Park, IL. This Targa had an original MSRP of $39,500 all the back in 1982! This is a 4 owner car that is fully documented and has a FULL service history since brand new and mileage verified through service receipts.

1984 Porsche 911 Targa

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been on the hunt for a good Porsche 911 SC or 3.2. It’s been a desire of mine for many years to own one. I’m not sure I’ll pull the trigger soon, but this tidy Ziegelrot Metallic 3.2 Targa for sale in Memphis has my radar up. I’m a bigger fan of the coupe than the Targa, but this unique shade of red, low mileage and good presentation has gotten my attention. This particular year is the first year for the 3.2, considered by many to be the ultimate expression of the original 911.

1984 Porsche 911 Targa on eBay

Very clean 84 model Carrera targa in rarely seen Kiln Red or “Ziegelrotmetallic”. Low miles at approximately 65,000 and no collision history. Car has always been garaged and although it has been driven – exterior is very good with only normal road usage. Books and tools as well as some service records. This is the first year of the 3.2 liter Carrera and these are one of the very best air cooled 911s ever produced – car runs wonderfully. Interior is very good as well with the only upgrade being the radio. These models are very strong running examples that followed the legendary 3 liter SC cars and have become one of the more favored air-cooled Porsches of modern times. Engine, transmission, clutch and brakes are all solid and there are no known issues. Car is also for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the listing at any time.

While the seller states there are no known issues, a little bit of color on the service history and any recent maintenance is always a good rule of thumb with a car of this caliber. With all things being equal, this car has a lot of life left in it.…
