I’ve shown a coupe examples of the Carrera 3.0 over the past months and given the fairly high price tags typically attached to these models, you can imagine my surprise when I came across this 1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa on auction with no reserve. Suffice it to say a $100K price tag would not be surprising, though we must keep in mind that the Targa of these models always falls into a much different category. Even though the Targa is quite a bit more rare than the Coupe – Targa production in each of the model’s two years was around half that of the Coupe – it remains the less desirable of the two so prices should be lower. Where this one ends up, we’ll just have to see.

These short no-reserve auctions always seem a bit high risk/high reward to me, but I suppose they are interesting even if only to see how quickly some prices might escalate. This Carrera 3.0 has been gradually on the rise since I first came across it, but admittedly it has been slow to move into the sort of territory at which I’d expect a 911 like this to sell. Much of that hesitation from prospective buyers likely comes down to documentation. The seller isn’t entirely sure about the color, simply passing on what the previous owner conveyed to him. Similarly, some validation of the very low mileage is in order as well. Those (not minor) issues aside, this 911 does look in pretty nice shape inside and out so we at least have ourselves a nice starting point. A whale tail on a Targa has never been my favorite look, but it does sort of have its place on a Carrera 3.0. We don’t see the Targa of this model very often at all and with bidding currently only at $50,100 this Targa could make for a hell of a deal.
