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.
