Here’s your chance to get your hands on a Porsche modified with period correct pieces from DP Motorsports. I spotted this Porsche 911 Targa on Portland, Craigslist ($20500, 85k original miles):
quote from Craigslist ad:
This is a beautiful white 911. Not your regular 911. Besides being a European Model it has all the bells and whistles. Approximently 300hp. Origional BB Rims. New low profile tires.
Race clutch, Dual stainless steele exhaust. Whale tale. 964 cams. Same as the Turbo. 930 body with wider steele fenders. Just put in a New starter and Battery. Car is Garaged
and not driven much. 85,000 origonal miles. Engine had a total rebuild at 62K. Origonally purchase in 1984 for 50k which includes the shipping. The origonal owner wanted the
turbo look but not the turbo during that era because the Turbo’s had allot of engine problems. Ordered the car from Porsche but made Body Modifications at DP Motor Sports in Germany.
before having it shipped to Seattle. Never wrecked and is in excellent condition. Must see and drive to appreciate. Have all the Paperwork on this car to verify. Thanks
This isn’t the first time we’ve posted a DP modified 911, but this one is a bit more attainable at only $20k. And 85k original miles would be good for a regular run-of-the-mill 84 Carrera, let alone a gray market spec car with DP goodies and BB wheels! I like it and the price seems about right too. Hope it finds a good home!
This is a neat car Dan! I wonder how collectible this will be in 10-15 years? As it stands it can be driven daily as the ’84 cars are very easy to live with. If the new owner ever decided to restore and show they would have a very unique asset.
There does not appear to be anything on the car from DP other than the DP on the back, not even a DP spoiler. Looks like a run of the mil ROW version of an 84-86 targa with a non factory wide body. Forget the 300 bhp claim unless they can provide dyno sheets or a list of some pretty extensive mods to that motor. Also the 915 gear box which came with that car is suspect on a 300 bhp motor, its not strong enough in the long run for that kind of power.
By the way there were no problems with the 3.3 turbo motor in the 80’s, Porsche just didnt ferderalize it for the US so there was no turbo sold in the US from 80 to 85.
Not a bad car if you like that sort of screaming 80’s look. The price is ball park too so long as there is a service history and you get a PPI.
