I’ve mentioned this before – but unless you have a keen eye, the 993, 996, and 997 Targa models don’t exactly scream “Hey, I’m a Targa!”. They all used very complex glass roofs with a hatchback-style piece that can be helpful in some situations. Still, these models have a far contrast to the return of the Targa panel that we saw with the 991. For the 997 chassis, all the Targa cars were built on the Carrera 4 body, which of course meant all were all-wheel drive. Just 1,760 were produced worldwide, with only 800 coming to America. This 2011 Targa 4 up for sale outside of Philadelphia is finished in the wonderful color of Racing Green Metallic over a Sand Beige interior; however, it is not cheap.

I’m honestly surprised to see a 997.2 Targa as most all of them I do sell are the pre-facelift 997.1. Racing Green really does the car a lot of favors in the wider bodywork, and the 19″ Carrera S II wheels look right at home. Sand Beige was a good contrast on this one, and interesting to see the Makassar wood package sprinkled around. If you asked me to guess before looking further, I would have put money on this being a PDK car, but thankfully it has a 6-speed gearbox that everyone loves. Top it all off with 58,000 miles, and I think this one looks great – it’s been driven but not so much that you’d be scared.
However, this is a not a cheap 997. $70,000 is what it will take to bring it home, which is a little steep considering this is a Targa 4, not a Targa 4S. I think this is a classic case of a Porsche dealer trying to cash in on a trade in by asking a high price and seeing what comes of it. I’m always curious when official dealers start dipping their toes into older models to try to retail on their lots, as it can become a slippery slope if the car isn’t perfect and if the buyers want to service them at the dealer. So while I cool example, maybe it is a little too pricey.
