1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Amid all of the high-dollar collectible Porsches there still exist plenty of options, though they dwindle with each passing year, for those seeking to find a reasonable value. Many of these value machines also benefit from sharing a market with those collectibles and with care they can be resold at a later date for sometimes more than their current purchase price. The key is to find cars that have been well cared for throughout their life. The 911 especially has had a lengthy history of stout engines so a car’s mileage is important, but its care is paramount. The 911SC fits most of these parameters perfectly: the engine has a history of long life and collectors haven’t taken as much notice outside of the best examples on the market. For fans of the Targa, value is even easier to find since the Targa has almost always been the lowest regarded of the models. I am a fan of the Targa so I always enjoy coming across these sorts of examples: here we have a India Red 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in Massachusetts, with a Chocolate Brown interior and 110,772 miles on it.

This is one of those cars we come across that doesn’t really possess any particularly eye-catching or special attributes. It simply is a standard car that appears in very good shape and treated to a high degree of care throughout its life. There is some wear to the driver’s seat in the usual spots, but overall for a 911 that is more than 30 years old the exterior and interior both present very well, though it would be nice to get a full shot of the dash to check its condition. I’m never a big fan of either the whale tail or the turbo tail on a Targa, but I’m sure that can be remedied should the new owner so desire. At its current bidding of $20,299 this one even looks like a nice value, though the reserve remains unmet so we’ll have to see how much higher this will go. I’d think if this Targa could be had in the mid-$20K, then it’d make for an excellent warm weather driver!

  1. Not much to nit pick on this one. I like the car. I think if you can buy it in the mid $20’s that would be pretty “fair value”. … Agreed … ditch the turbo spoiler on the back. Find another deck lid and have it painted to match. Its less than an hours job to swap them yourself.
