NO RESERVE 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa 3.0L

Up for auction at no-reserve this 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa finished in Guards Red over a black interior. This example has been modified with larger 993 Carrera S front brakes, custom 17” Fuchs wheels, and a newly installed 3.0L flat-six engine featuring Carrera chain tensioners, SSI heat exchangers, a custom muffler, and Turbo lower valve covers.  With its extensive collection of records and considerable amounts of recent service, this 911 Targa is now being offered for auction without reserve by its seller out of New York.

This 911 is presented in the classic shade of Guards Red and the car is noted to have been previously refinished.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  Some exterior features include a classic stainless steel Targa bar, wraparound glass rear window, and an aftermarket oil-cooler scoop on the front bumper.  A 2014 invoice from Trudesign Wheel shows a set of custom 17” Fuchs wheels to have been made which feature polished alloy hoops and gloss black powder-coated centers.  The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires show date codes from 2013 in the front and 2016 in the rear.

The black interior was refurbished by Auto Weave Upholstery in 2014 at a cost of over $2,400 including a new carpet kit, trunk liner, sound insulation, and a re-covered dashboard.  The cabin has also been fitted with upgraded speakers, an aftermarket radio, and aluminum pedals.  The condition of the interior is depicted in the photo gallery.  The complete air conditioning system is present, although the compressor is currently disconnected.

Just recently, this Targa was fitted with an RoW-spec 3.0L flat-six engine and 915/61 5-speed manual gearbox sourced from an earlier 911SC model.  The donor car showed approximately 134k-miles at the time of the engine swap.  This engine has been upgraded with Carrera chain tensioners, Turbo lower valve covers, SSI heat exchangers, and a custom muffler.  Other performance upgrades include Turbo tie rods and large 993 Carrera S Brembo brakes paired with full-floating rotors.  All new ignition components were recently installed along with a new fuel pressure accumulator, fuel filter, and brand new Valeo alternator.  The oil was also changed, a new right rear axle was installed, and the cylinder heads were re-torqued to factory specifications.

This sale will include a vast collection of records and a clean title.  At no reserve, this upgraded 911 Targa offers a fantastic opportunity for any passionate air-cooled driving enthusiast.

    @superfly I don’t intend to make any excuses for a 37 year old car so in my opinion - other than the passengers seat . . . . I believe that the interior is “in nice shape”.

  • superfly (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @SoyRacer Are we looking at the same interior? I would not consider this interior to be "Really Nice".

    @lennyhd2002 Hello. It is uncharacteristically free of leaks at this time.

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @leftlane Hello. It most definitely is Not the same car. So - I am only confirming that that’s incorrect.

  • lennyhd2002 (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    Does it drip oil on a fresh driveway ??

  • leftlane 1 week, 3 daysago

    Can you confirm that this was the 84 911 Red - black Targa that was sold last year in Fort
    Collins Colorado without an engine and trans? I sure looks to be the same car.

    @gerald_renaud Hello. All Porsche Chassis built at the time (1984 and prior) were manufactured on a German assembly line and as such had a German/ROW vin designation. When the vehicles were allocated to their respective destinations the "ZZZ" sections were adjusted on the riveted/affixed vin tag to match its destination Vin Structure. The WP0EB0..... designates it as a North American car. The drivetrain that was installed into this car is a European market 3.0 litre from an 911-SC.

  • gerald_renaud (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    Hello, could you explain why the VIN on the door panel begins with WP0EB09... and the VIN under the hood close to the spare wheel is WP0ZZZ9... ?
    And actually, I still have not understood a clear confirmation of the engine, is it a 3.0 replacement or the 3.2 original ?
    thanks for the clarification

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Darren04 Yes, the car has a clean, open Colorado title and the car is currently on Long Island.

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @LongwoodCharger Hello. I have owned the car for a few months in which time the drivetrain was installed and sorted. The SC drivetrain was installed because it was a fantastic Euro (higher output) assembly that I was saving for a nice vessel. . . . which this is.
    You can see the details of the wheel specifications in image #102 and they are built on genuine Fuchs wheels, not replicas.

  • Darren04 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Can you comment on the car's title? Clean, what state (Colorado?) etc... Also, is the car on Long Island currently?

  • DriverM (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Darren04 OOPPS........Sorry I missed that. My bad....

  • LongwoodCharger (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @SoyRacer Sorry, one more question. What are the specs for those aftermarket Fuchs replicas?

  • LongwoodCharger (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @SoyRacer How long have you owned the car and do you know of the reason for the engine replacement with an older design, less advance 3.0 engine?

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Otto911 Hello again. I do not know what the damage reference is and carfax was not able to provide any additional clarification. I have found no evidence of damage from an accident and have had people check the car over for PPI and they didn’t find anything either. I welcome anyone interested to have the car checked over.

  • Otto911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @SoyRacer thanks! Do you know what the damage on the carfax report was for?

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Otto911 I’m gonna go with this . . . . Porsche didn’t offer AWD on the 911 line till the introduction of the 964 chassis in 1989 with the Carrera-4. Prior to that - the whole 911 series was Rear Wheel Drive . . . which makes this car RWD

  • Otto911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Is this an AWD or RWD?

  • SoyRacer (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @lennyhd2002 Hello. I did not come across a seat at Carlisle but I did find a compressor mount. The A/C compressor is now mounted, operational and the system blows nice cool air. A video was sent to PCarMarket to be uploaded.

  • Darren04 (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    In the seller's description, he stated that the engine was replaced in the past with a 3.0

  • DriverM (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Just an FYI........If it' s a 1984 Carrera and it still has the original engine, it's a 3.2 and not a 3.0....

  • lennyhd2002 (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Curious if the things mentioned in the previous comments have been fixed already, ? The passenger seat and the air conditioning compressor assembled and blowing cold ?

    @Darren04 Hello. In photo #91 you are noticing the second exhaust tailpipe from the custom exhaust. That tailpipe is valved and only opens at full throttle. The A/C is just awaiting a mount (which will hopefully be sourced at PA swap meet) and will be operational before auctions end.

  • Darren04 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Two more: (1)In pic #91: what is the open hose/pipe aiming downward? Is this from the disconnected AC? (2) reason for the disconnected AC?. Thanks

  • SoyRacer (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Freemaha To Be Fair: everything that they did is actually pretty nice (see itemized invoice in gallery) and I’m searching for a replacement passengers seat to install before the auction ends. Otherwise the interior is in Really nice condition.

  • Freemaha (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Remind me never to use auto weave upholstery service

  • SoyRacer (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    @Darren04 Hello. Those holes are for securing the euro front lip that had cracked and dangling. I didn’t fill them as I’d planned to locate a replacement piece.

  • Darren04 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    any idea what was removed from the front end? There are two opposing sets of holes on the both sides below the bumper.

  • SoyRacer (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    @lennyhd2002 Hello. The mileage is documented as far as the mileage on the vehicle that the drivetrain came from. Unfortunately Carfax doesn’t cover earlier SC 911 cars without a 17-digit vin.
    The car runs and drives beautifully and I wouldn’t hesitate to drive this gem cross-country.

  • lennyhd2002 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    The current engine has a stated amount but not documented. 134,000 miles on it ?
