2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

The Porsche 911 Targa is one of those true ‘have your cake and eat it too’ cars that has been carrying on for a few decades now. After all, it was created to answer the rumor that the US was going to ban the sale of convertible cars due to safety reasons, but Porsche, and most importantly their customers, still wanted open-air motoring. What started as a simple removable roof panel transformed into a piece of sliding glass over generations, and now we have an extremely complex folding roof mechanism that you pray never has a fault with it. Still, when it works, it is amazing. So what do you say – are you a Targa fan or not?

I think Porsche did a really nice job with the Targa on the 991 chassis, and this 2014 up for sale in Charlotte, North Carolina shows why. Despite the challenges of engineering a really complex folding top, none of the angles on this car look odd or out of place. They stuck with the stainless-look Targa bar even when they clearly didn’t have to, and it is a nice touch to set off the model so as not to mistake it for a coupe. This one has really low miles for a 2014, and good options like Carrera S wheels, LED headlights, Sport Chrono, Premium package, and so on. It also goes without saying that Sapphire Blue Metallic is also a killer color as well.

This one is running with any auction format and my guess it is going to command six-figures and then some. Sticker was a little over $141,000, but the real value here is the super low miles. It is crazy to think this car is the best part of eight years old, but time flies when you are having fun. It is still a nice example that I’m sure will age well.

  1. I’ve always liked the 991 targa’s. This blue on grey is a nice color combo too. Agreed about the stainless targa bar it’s a nice detail that sets the car apart.

    I think the 991 Targa and later are nice redesigns…I had an SC Targa and it was a bit of a leaker. The blue and grey is a nice change from the usual.

  3. I’m pretty familiar with this dealer, and given the Targa market in general I’d be surprised if they let this go for less than $125-130K. 911s, particularly low mile cars, have truly erased years worth of depreciation in the past 8 months.

  4. MR K is right on. Some of these used 911s have gone up so much you are paying close to original MSRP for them. Sellers are profiting like crazy and buyers are getting in at ridiculously high prices. I suspect things will look much different after all of the stimulus money stops and buyers stop the crazy “buy at any price “ post covid mentality. Look for good buying opportunities in the next year or two.

  5. I’m not sure about looking for good opportunities in the next year or two. Inflation is only going to get worse with how things are going. Will that eventually make the prices come down? Maybe, but until that crash I think that things are only going to keep going up.
