1981 Porsche 911SC Targa

I always love to return to the 911SC Targa in my search for driver quality 911s. These were the Porsches that first made me familiar with the marque and represent my first exposure to the 911 in general. And, of course, it helps that they tend to come in at pretty reasonable values among the air-cooled line. This 1981 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in Oregon, comes in a period correct color combination of Platinum Metallic over a Brown interior. It’s a combination of two earthy and natural tones that is fairly uncommon on modern cars, but looks good here. It even works well with the chrome Fuchs!

This ad tells us most of things we want to hear with a 911 like this. It’s said to be in excellent condition and to possess extensive records. We do see a binder of service receipts, the perusal of which should provide buyers a good sense of its current mechanical state. Obviously, how comprehensive those receipts are will be important. It also looks in pretty nice shape. It’s certainly not perfect as there’s wear to be seen, but the overall condition is befitting of its age and mileage. The interior looks in good shape as well. The dash looks great and while the seats show wear it’s the sort of wear from good use and care rather than neglect. The most egregious errors appear to be scuffs to the lower portion of the dash. I would guess that the upper section of the dash has been replaced given that it looks in much newer condition than the rest of the interior. But perhaps not. I wonder too whether the paint and seating are original. Outside of those questions, it does look good though. If everything with its service is up to date then it should make for a nice driver.

Bidding remains fairly low right not at only $20,600. Based on other auctions, and assuming everything checks out, I’d assume bidding will need to at least reach $30K in order to meet the reserve. We will see if it can get there.
