1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Continuing in the vein of yesterday’s post of a no-reserve, driver-quality, 911 Carrera, here we have a 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa also on auction with no reserve, though with around half the mileage of yesterday’s car. The 3.2 Carrera showed incremental changes from the 911SC in regard to everything other than the engine and even the engine differences are small enough relative to modern cars to render them less significant when looking for a classic 911. Choosing between the two models, in many ways, comes down to finding a well-maintained example in the color and style of your preference. This Guards Red Targa offers plenty of aesthetic differences relative to yesterday’s Meteor Grey Carrera, but should still come at a reasonable value and provide for ample driving thrills with the added benefit of open-top motoring.

By appearance, this 911SC’s paint pops in a way yesterday’s car did not. Much of that is down to the Guards Red color, but even so the exterior appears better maintained and the interior looks in equally good condition. All-in-all a solid looking 911SC that has reasonable mileage, though perhaps without the documentation and history that some buyers may prefer. If it can come through with a good PPI, then this too may be had at a decent value.

    I’m a sucker for that 3 spoke steering wheel. I never understood why they switched over to that generic looking 4 spoke design that followed. I had the 4 spoke on my 85.5 944 and always envied the earlier models with the 3 spoke.

    This SC looks beautiful and I think now is the time to get into this series of 911s before speculators and collectors price them out of reach.
