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. Earlier and later 911 motors had known defects, this 3.0 engine was the best and most reliable.

This car is all-stock in appearance with no goofy add-ons or modifications.

This car has the perfect balance of power, handling and responsiveness. The flat-6 engine is powerful and torquey right from idle up to redline, with a smooth power curve. The brakes are phenomenal- they have been described in the automotive press as “the hand of God.” The suspension is amazingly responsive and capable- I swear you can feel every pebble you drive over, in a good way. The handling of these cars is superb and the cornering abilities are amazingly high. This is a world-class sports car that also happens to be dead reliable and dependable. It’s a great combination, and no wonder these cars are appreciating every year.

I have a list of all of the service and maintenance work done to the car for the past 12 years. Some of this work includes: heater blower motor, ventilation control unit, heater air hoses, hood and trunk lift supports, steering column bearing, factory sport shift assembly, ignition wires, valve adjustment, 911 Turbo valve covers, spark plugs, ignition rotor, fuel filter, starter and solenoid, battery, Weltmeister airbox valve, cylinder head oil supply pipes/hoses, oil pressure sender, generator rebuild, full brake system (front and rear pads, rotors, hoses, master cylinder and fluid. Of course all oil changes and routine maintenance were performed on time as well.

This is quite simply one of the best-condition, best-maintained 911 SCs you will find for sale anywhere. This car has been engineer/enthusiast owned and operated and it could not have received better care or maintenance. This car has always been garaged and it is clean in every way.

The paint and body are in very good condition. The paint appears to be all original with the exception of the front bumper and maybe the front hood (due to stone nicks). The paint is in very nice condition, with no oxidation or major defects. The body is straight and clean with no rust.

The interior is the beautiful chocolate brown in superb condition. The leather seats are in very good condition with no rips. The carpets are clean and in great shape. The plastics, vinyl and interior surfaces are in very good condition. All the interior switchgear is in good, working condition. This interior is clean and in superb shape.

The removable Targa top has recently been rebuilt by a professional Targa guy. The vinyl, headliner and interior panels are all new. The latches and hinges are in perfect working order. This top seals well and does not leak. This rebuild job cost $1500.

This car starts, runs and drives superbly well. The engine starts perfectly and does not smoke. The engine is powerful and smooth throughout the rpm range. The transmission shifts well, as well as these 911s can be expected to, anyway. The clutch is tight and strong. The steering is smooth and responsive. The suspension is absolutely tight and there is no looseness nor any suspension noises. This car is totally reliable and dependable and it drives beautifully.

I just took this car on a 300 mile weekend trip and it performed perfectly. I would trust this car to drive across the country and back.

This car is an amazing vehicle to drive. Driving up a winding road with the Targa top off and the flat-6 wailing behind you is one of the greatest experiences in motoring.

This car has had the Weltmeister airbox pressure relief valve installed to protect the airbox in case of backfire. The valve covers are upgraded Turbo valve covers to prevent leaks.

This car has a newer Blaupunkt AM/FM CD player and newer Polk Audio speakers that sound great. There is an Aux input for an iPod, MP3 player, etc. The car was not hacked up to install this audio equipment.

This is a 30 year old car and as such it is not brand new. Please expect normal issues of wear and tear consistent with the age of the car. Here is a list of everything I know of wrong with the car: there are minor stone nicks and tiny paint imperfections. There are some small dings on the front hood. The rear black bumperettes are flaking and slightly cracked. The oil tank gauge on the dash does not work- all the rest of the gauges work perfectly. The rear air conditioning condenser developed a hole a few years ago. The condenser and the A/C compressor were subsequently removed, and I have them to go with the car. The air conditioning in these cars didn’t work well even when they were new, but this A/C system could certainly be made to work again if someone wanted.

You can fly in to Cleveland (CLE) and drive this car home. You can also have the car shipped- please call Angels Moving Autos at 530 245 0481 for a shipping quote.

I have a number in my head that would buy the car early- call me if you’re interested.

Questions, email me or call/text me at 440 339 4341.

While this color palette won’t appeal to everyone, it’s undeniably a pretty car that appears in very good condition both inside and out. I’m always a fan of a dark brown interior and this one complements the gold exterior well. This car is not a low mileage garage queen, but rather a 30-year-old 911 that has seen good use and reasonable mileage for its age. On the car itself, there really isn’t much left to say: it looks to have had a good home under a good owner who cared for it well and there’s little more we can ask for when looking for a classic car. I’d expect a 911SC such as this to sell somewhere around $17,000-$19,000, though it could easily edge slightly higher if the right buyer comes along. Right now, however, the bidding is at a very modest $10,100. If this car sells for anything near that price, it looks like a steal!

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.

The RG5B is made from a single piece of A6061 aluminum, heat treated to T6 standards, and forged in an 8000 pound press. The end result is an extremely light wheel, ranging from 19 to 26 pounds, depending on diameter and width. This process also produces one of the strongest wheels on the market.

All four wheels are straight and free of rash. All four wheels have matching Michelin Pilot Sports mounted with approximately 3,000 miles on them. The car is only hand washed and waxed by me and my detailer whose specialty is black paint. The paint is deep and shiny with no swirl marks.

Closing Comments: I have enjoyed every minute of owning this car since 2009. In my opinion, it is really the best of all worlds in the 997 911 lineup: wide body without all of the spoilers and intakes, all wheel drive, open air cockpit, yet more rigid and coupe like than a cab, functional rear hatch for a little easier access for a duffle bag on a weekend trip, and a rarer model than a Turbo. Moreover, I put effort to tastefully expand this car’s sporting character than it was originally optioned, by adding the Fabspeed package and GT2 skirts. From top to bottom this car exudes quality and uniqueness while offering an excellent balance of touring and sport. It is a joy to drive and routinely receives positive comments from Porsche-philes as well as people simply admiring a beautiful car.

Reason for sending her to a new home: I had no intention of selling the car until recently when I had the opportunity to buy not one, but two, other of my Porsche 911 dream cars. So, it’s really just a matter of freeing up the funds and the garage space.
Terms: Deposit of $1,000 expected within 24 hours of agreeing to purchase. Title is in hand, free and clear.

While I tend to prefer the classic silhouette of the 911 Coupe, I think I may have changed my mind with this Targa 4S. The chrome trim mirroring the roofline plus the added practicality of the rear hatch goes well with the dark color and eye-catching RG5B wheels. When you first look at this 911, you see a coupe, but look a little closer and you’ll notice the subtle differences. Add in the unique options and you have a 911 that sets you apart from the crowd.

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.

Hey Everybody –

Up for sale is a 6 speed 993 Targa.

Mileage – 52,5xx

Color: Arctic Silver – Simply the easiest color to keep looking good and the most stealth color to reduce one’s contact with the “authorities.”

Targa’s come with the delicious glass top and they come with the Varioram intake system which means more horsepower than a regular C2!!

Options/Aftermarket:
JRZ shocks/struts and a set of TRG sway bars keep this car glued to the road. (The new owner will get the OEM shocks and sway bars.)
18″ – 3 piece aluminum rims (Porsche Cup replica 8×8.5 & 18×10) w/ new Bridgestone speed rated radials.
Porsche Cup air intake/K&N filter
B&B stainless steel mufflers
B&M short throw shifter
The interior is the upgraded leather with the Porsche crest in the headrests. The dashboard looks new as does the entire cockpit of this awesome car.

But don’t take my word for it,there was a pre-sales inspection that validates that the car is in great shape. Compression leak down #’s are consistent with a very strong motor. Adult driven, never tracked and clear title in hand.

Full Disclosure: Rock chip repair on hood by previous owner. Not perfectly done (are any of them perfectly done?) The guy at the paint shop said to leave it alone. He said it would be like refinishing an antique table, it would hurt the value. I’d be asking a lot more for the car if the paint was perfect – it’s not – it’s original and the car is 16 years old.

I had this car valued by the Porsche Club of America in 2009 for insurances purposes and that’s how I set the asking price. Car handles like a UFO on steroids and I hate to sell it, but the cash goes to pay for the kids college.

Last thing – please don’t hammer me for the dirty floor mats – they are clean now!

I never paid much attention to the Targa variant of the 993, probably because I’m not a fan of Panoramic sunroofs. I like sunroofs, but my MINI Cooper S (R53 variant) has the aforementioned variety and I could do without the fixed rear glass panel. It just makes the car heat up more in the summer months. I’m not sure if the sliding roof is worth the extra weight over a regular 911 with a sunroof, but it does lend to a more airy cabin. Targas of all generations can languish a bit behind Coupes and Cabriolets, but when it comes to the 993, prices for these variants are about on par with other models. For Targas that have about 75,000 miles and under, the sweet spot is around the low $40,000 range to the best glancing $50,000.

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. This little 911 still retains its original 2993cc drive train which is definitely something you do not see every day. There is nothing cooler then a driving vintage Porsche!

The exterior of the car is finished in the flashy color of Guards Red. Overall the paint looks good with a few chips and still retains a beautiful luster. The car has received one high quality repaint at some time in the past and looks excellent. It was a high quality job with no overspray or tape tines. Very hard for the novice eye to notice. The body is 100% rust free and is as straight as an arrow, as any Southwest car should be. All door gaps appear to be factory original and correct. Overall the underside is completely solid and rust free as any west coast car should be. All the weather stripping on the car is soft and supple. The factory Targa top seals up nicely and the vinyl was just redone recently, and is in excellent condition with no rips or ware. The window seals are all replaced and the Targa bar was removed, re-powder coated and re-installed. The car was just fully buffed and hand waxed and has a deep glossy shine.

The car is riding on fully reconditioned 16″ staggered Fuchs wheels. The barrels were all professionally polished and the centers re-painted. The tires are brand new 16″ BF Goodrich g-Force Sport performance directional radials in the correct OE sizes.

The very nice factory Black Leather interior is all original and looks excellent. The seats, door panels, carpet, and headliner all look perfect and really set the car off. All the gauges and lights work as they should. The original radio and speakers were replaced with a high dollar ($1000+) Rockford Fosgate sound system that sounds great. All the courtesy lights as well as all the running lights work as they should. Also the lights, horn, turn signals, defroster, and even the lighter work. All the glass and rubbers look excellent. The wind shield was also just replaced due to a rock chip and is BRAND NEW!

Mechanically, this 911 is in excellent condition! Anyone who knows Porsche knows that these early 80’s Porsches are regarded as the best years to own. The engine compartment is clean as a whistle and shows how well this car was kept. The motor is also very tight and doesn’t leak. The car just had a service here at Stuttgart Southwest in Tempe, AZ, and was given a clean bill of health and the motor has excellent compression and leakdown. Both the Engine and Trans are factory numbers matching. The suspension is tight and true and handles as a Porsche should. The car easily cruises at Autobahn speeds well over 100mph. The previous owner spent over $5000 doing performance upgrades o the car including high output plug wires, Bilstein Sport shocks, front and rear sway bars, Powerflow exhaust, Powerflow Intake, Stainless Steel brakes lines, short shifter, and all new bushings up front! He also had the torsion suspension lowered 1″ down to Euro Spec height. The odometer reads a bit over 55,000 miles, which is AutoCheck and CARFAX certified to be original. All systems work and the car does not over heat and is a true pleasure to drive. The Air Conditioning was just serviced and blows Ice Cold. This little diamond and is ready for the next cruise night or car show.

One of the nice things about this 911 that you don’t find in most cars is the complete service history. Over 30 pages of receipts and warrantee work will come with the car going all the way back to 1981 and its first 1000 mi service. It also documents the car mileage as well as its original purchase in Illinois and its move to the Southwest in the early 90s. The original owner’s manual will be included.

The bonnet is in excellent condition and still retains all of its factory carpeting as well as the space saver spare with the original jack and complete tool pouch. The original Porsche compressor is also included.

As the description states, it is in fact difficult to hold your Starbucks while driving this car, so if that is a deal breaker, this is certainly not the car for you. If frivolities like cup holders are low on your list, then this is certainly a car to consider. This is one of the best kept 930s I’ve seen in a long time, with documentation since new and a mere 1800 miles per year; this had to have been someone’s baby.

Clean as this car is, it’s priced well within reason. A 911 in this condition can easily fetch in the $26,000 to $27,000 range, making the $23,900 buy it now price, a great deal. This car is an amazing example of a well-kept 930 SC and a shining example of why jewelry is a better choice when buying a gift for your wife.

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. The one thing that detracts for me here is that this is a 1984 model, and it wasn’t until 1987 that the 911 benefitted from the improved Getrag G50 5-speed gearbox, which had better synchronizers than the 915 5-speed carried over from the 911 SC. The seller has priced this car attractively, though, as 3.2 Targas with lower mileage in good condition tend to run anywhere in the $18,000 to $24,000 range, give or take. I really like this car, and if it was closer, I would almost certainly contact the seller and have a go.

2007 Porsche Targa 4S Offered by EuroWerkz

In 1999, Porsche revamped the 911 with the new 996 model. This new model was the biggest departure yet from the original 911 formula. Gone was the air-cooled flat six engine, in its place a water-cooled flat six developed to meet noise and emissions standards. In addition, the headlights were transformed into a more ovoid shape with integrated signal and fog lamps. Derided to this day by hardcore Porschephiles, they have never escaped from the shadow of the almighty 993, the last of the air-cooled Porsches. Resale values have reflected this sentiment.

The 996 lasted for six short years in various iterations, replaced by the 997. While the 997 was still water-cooled, it went a long way to address the quality, appearance and performance issues that die hard Porsche enthusiasts had been banging on about since the demise of the 993. One of the more overlooked examples of the 911 these days is the Targa. Originally, Targas had a removable roof panel with a folding rear convertible section. The folding rear top eventually gave way to a fixed glass window. For 1996, Porsche changed the Targa formula by introducing a sliding glass roof panel that would slide inward parallel to the rear window.

Here is a 997 Targa 4S on offer from EuroWerkz LC in Pleasantville, Iowa. This particular model features Porsche’s all-wheel drive and 380 horsepower from a 3.8 liter engine.

2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S for sale at EuroWerkz

The Gentlemans GT! A very nice and very rare combination of 911 here. This is low mileage, southern, one owner Porsche 911 4S Targa that is equipped right and has some nice modifications to make it a great combination of style and function. Finshed in Beautiful Jet Black over optional Sand Beige Extended leather. The car is equipped with all the right and desirable 911S options including Bose sound, Chrono plus, Navigation, power seats, and optional thicker sports steering wheel.

The car has aftermarket Champion Porsche lowering springs, beautiful Champion Porsche 19″ motorsports wheels with colored crests and is wearing the Porsche approved Michelin PS2 Super Sport N1 tires, clear corner lenses, and GT2 side rocker flares for a really aggressive look. For some extra go the car has the complete $8000 Fabspeed 911S power kit including headers, mufflers, cats, and exhaust with the cold air kit and special custom software. It sounds great and will rock your world at the tickle of the pedal. It’s a very nice car in superior conditon with an agressive presense. We love it and know you will to. Offered at $69,900.

I’m a big fan of these Targas. While they are a tad heavier than a standard Carerra, the roofline and rear window styling is a neat departure from the usual 911 silhouette. This particular Targa has some nice modifications from Champion Porsche that are subtle yet aggressive at the same time. For those seeking a 911 with a little bit of an edge, and would like to enjoy open air motoring with the practicality of a roof, your ride has arrived.

No reserve 1974 BMW 2002 Karosserie Baur Targa conversion

Like most convertible conversions, this isn’t for everyone. If you are however, a fan of cars with the roof cut off then its best to get a conversion done by a reputable source and not the guy down the street with a sawzall. The company that did this conversion, Baur, has a long history of working with the BMW factory to modify cars. Even so I still worry about how much stiffness/safety you lose with a conversion like this.

The seller states this 2002 is one of 1963 that Baur converted to the targa style. The front has a removable top while the rear has a fold down soft top. The open air is a good thing for the summer as the car’s nice black leather wrapping the Recaro sport seats probably roasts the backs of legs on a hot day. I suspect the roof will rarely be on the car so one can look past the car’s less than stellar looks with the top up.

This is a German delivery car and has retained its Euro spec gauges. The steering wheel with the blue inserts is a bit of a detraction, colored rims are ok with me (my BMW has body color rims), color insert steering wheels are a bit boy racer. The proper Baur emblem resides on the center console.

There are 85,000 miles on the original 2 liter inline 4. Power flows through the stock 4 speed manual. The exterior has been redone and the rich blue color looks great. There is an added front and rear spoiler, which look ok. There appears to be a larger than needed exhaust on the car as well.

This is a no reserve sale so high bidder will take the car home. Currently bidding is up over $7,600. The rarity of the vehicle will bring out BMW collectors. While not my cup of tea, this conversion doesn’t look bad. Its kind of a step up for the former VW cabrio owning teenybopper crowd.

1984 Porsche 911 Targa DP For Sale in Portland, Oregon

Here’s your chance to get your hands on a Porsche modified with period correct pieces from DP Motorsports. I spotted this Porsche 911 Targa on Portland, Craigslist ($20500, 85k original miles):

1984 Porsche 911 Targa Carrera DP For Sale

quote from Craigslist ad:

This is a beautiful white 911. Not your regular 911. Besides being a European Model it has all the bells and whistles. Approximently 300hp. Origional BB Rims. New low profile tires.
Race clutch, Dual stainless steele exhaust. Whale tale. 964 cams. Same as the Turbo. 930 body with wider steele fenders. Just put in a New starter and Battery. Car is Garaged
and not driven much. 85,000 origonal miles. Engine had a total rebuild at 62K. Origonally purchase in 1984 for 50k which includes the shipping. The origonal owner wanted the
turbo look but not the turbo during that era because the Turbo’s had allot of engine problems. Ordered the car from Porsche but made Body Modifications at DP Motor Sports in Germany.
before having it shipped to Seattle. Never wrecked and is in excellent condition. Must see and drive to appreciate. Have all the Paperwork on this car to verify. Thanks

This isn’t the first time we’ve posted a DP modified 911, but this one is a bit more attainable at only $20k. And 85k original miles would be good for a regular run-of-the-mill 84 Carrera, let alone a gray market spec car with DP goodies and BB wheels! I like it and the price seems about right too. Hope it finds a good home!
