1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

Turning our attention again to the 3.2 Carrera, here we have an example that is beginning to creep back into value territory, though the asking price is still higher than what we might hope to pay for a driver-quality 911. With a Diamond Blue Metallic exterior and Marine Blue leather interior this one even possesses a somewhat unique color combination that is compelling without being flashy. This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in New Jersey, with 105,744 miles on it comes from near the last year of the classic 911 design and given the mileage looks to be in quite good condition.

These cars have a long history of stout mechanicals that should not discourage any buyer from considering examples with 100,000+ miles. There is always the caveat of proper maintenance being a must, but if a car such as this one can come through with a good PPI then, in many ways, it provides what so many of us are looking for in an early 911: a clean, good looking car, that we can take out for weekend drives with fewer concerns over every potential rock chip or mud puddle. While the Targa isn’t everyone’s preferred choice, for those who do enjoy their compromise between fixed-roof and open-top motoring they can usually be had cheaper than a similar condition Coupe or Cabriolet.

    That looks like a very decent value there. Buy it, drive it as long as you want, maintain it (not expensive – lots of stuff you can do yourself), and always have a car worth as much or more than you paid for it. Super cool color combo, they don’t make interiors like that anymore… blue leather? Sweet looking. Targa’s are just as good in the performance category unless you are looking to autocross / track it. If that’s your plan – you shouldn’t buy one this nice and original…

    love the color combo….love that Targa!
    I agree that these cars are not to be shied away from with 100k+ mileage as long as they have been taken care of…..and AGAIN typical dealer-speak ..were great..we’ve been doing it for 18+ years blah blah blah….how about maintenance records??? when your asking top dollar for this model year 911???
    if you don’t have them….tell us what you’ve done to the car maintenance wise…or are you just flipping it over without going through it????
    yes this is easy a mid-20k car….with proper maintenance!

    I’d be less concerned about the mileage on the car than I would be about the apparent mismatch of paint between the front fender and door on both sides of the car. Be sure to invest in the Autocheck or Carfax report and have someone knowledgeable check out the front of the car.
