1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

We have featured a few 3.2 Carreras for sale lately as the market for these cars rises and owners look to capitalize on interest in the car. Here we have another example that will provide us with an interesting look at where Carreras in various states of condition and mileage are selling. Given some of the sales we’ve seen, this particular Carrera might even be a pretty good value. This Guards Red 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, for sale in California, comes in the rare combination of red on red and sits at just shy of 80K miles. We’ve seen in the past few weeks this 1989 Carrera Coupe with 57K miles sell for $45,000 and this 1986 Carrera Coupe with 162K miles recently sold for $27,000. So, where might Targa values lie relative to these coupes?

I’ll admit, I’m not a huge fan of a bright red interior in a bright red car, but some people will, I’m sure, enjoy it. And it’s certainly not going to be a common combination! By appearance this car presents very well and if the maintenance history can match the apparent care of the exterior and interior then we’re probably looking at a fairly good value. At an asking price of $32,911 this sits nicely in the middle of the sales we’ve seen and the mileage is quite reasonable, while remaining high enough that it won’t fetch the higher low-mileage prices. That seems the best of both worlds since this Targa can be still be enjoyed without too many mileage concerns nor concerns over the effect of those miles on its value.
