I’m always a little wary of posting cars when the seller gets certain major pieces of information wrong – obviously a lot of issues are raised – but I think here barring that inaccuracy everything else with this 911 looks in good order and given that it’s a no reserve auction, buyers who put in the necessary legwork can know they have a legit shot at the car. The major error: the seller lists this as a 911SC, which it clearly is not based upon, well, everything. Here we have an Emerald Green Metallic 1976 Porsche 911S Targa, located in Oregon, with Cinnamon partial leather interior and 54,953 miles on it. This is a really nice color combination as the Emerald Green exterior – which reminds me of a toned down version of Viper Green – contrasts really well with the Cinnamon interior. And it is on these cars where I really enjoy the Targa. The roll hoop stands out really well and that little bit of openness allows the interior and exterior colors to show against one another to great effect. While I don’t expect it to remain there, with current bidding around $30K this 911S may even be had for pretty reasonable value.

The most difficult issue to address given the inaccuracy of the seller’s model listing is the originality of the car. That’s where I’d be most wary. The CoA appears to verify the color combination and the seller does tell us it’s been repainted, but that still leaves us with a few things to check out, and of course there’s always the question of history and documentation. That said, other than documentation of maintenance many of those other factors are of most concern to those with an eye on long term value. For someone who desires to hop into a nice 911 to enjoy, but with less concern over its value, then the veracity of its originality may be of less concern. Especially if that means a lower selling price now. So I can definitely see some give and take here with regard to any potential issues. Interested buyers may need to act fast though as this is a fairly short no reserve auction. That brings some potential risk, but hopefully the issues with this 911 begin and end with the model designation in the ad.
