This 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is finished in Guards Red over a Black interior and features a 911 Turbo tea tray rear spoiler, Fuchs forged alloy wheels, a MOMO Prototipo three-spoke steering wheel, an upgraded sound system, and a 5-speed manual transaxle paired with its air-cooled 3.2-liter engine. It was acquired by the current owner in 2014 and has been meticulously maintained including some notable service items and an application ceramic coating. Supported by a recent service and pre-purchase inspection, this Targa is now being offered for auction out of Massachusetts with approximately 74k miles showing on the odometer.
This 911 is finished in traditional Guards Red with a black Targa band and removable roof panel. Equipment includes a heated glass rear window, a front valence with integrated fog lights and a chin spoiler, headlight washers, black rear stone guard decals, a periscope-style third brake light, and a 911 Turbo tea tray rear spoiler. The car rides on factory 15” Fuchs forged alloy wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps and Cooper CS4 Touring tires (2008). The seller notes all painted surfaces were treated with an application of ceramic coating in 2018 and the car remains in very good overall condition apart from some cracking paint behind the wheel on the passenger rear quarter, a surface scratch on the driver’s front fender, and a dent under the rear bumper. The seller adds that the passenger side door panel may have been refinished under prior ownership. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, this 911 features a black leather interior with matching carpets, a power-operated driver’s seat, a three-spoke MOMO Prototipo steering wheel, and black carpet floor mats with embroidered Porsche crests. Other accessories include air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, a quartz clock, a locking glovebox, a center console cassette holder, and a modern Pioneer Bluetooth stereo. The seller notes three-point seatbelts were installed for the rear seats and the original belts are included with the sale. An aftermarket rear parcel shelf has also been installed along with upgraded Infinity speakers mounted in the shelf and door panels. The seller notes a small split is present on the driver seat as well as some wear on the bolsters. All gauges and accessories are said to be functional other than the cigarette lighter socket and the rear defroster. The A/C does not blow cold at this time.
An air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 207 HP and 192 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transaxle. Service was completed upon the owner’s purchase in 2014 within the last 4k miles including a valve adjustment, new spark plugs, ignition wires, a fuel level sender, brake hoses, an O2 sensor, and a catalytic converter. Another service was completed within the last 1k miles including front wheel bearings, new tie rods, front sway bar bushings, a brake fluid flush, an oil change, and a speedometer repair. A pre-purchase inspection was also completed by a local Porsche specialist in November 2023 which is provided for reference in the gallery.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, a car cover, some service records, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “I have owned it since 2014, always garaged, never driven in the rain. This was my dream car growing up as a teen in the 80s. Was grateful I was able to purchase and own this for the past 9 years, but don't have enough time to drive and enjoy it as it should (only put 4000 miles during this time). I have spent money to do routine and required repairs to keep the car safe and roadworthy but have not gone overboard as you can always find a part that could use replacing or upgrading for a 39-year-old car. I will miss the smiles and the frequent "nice car!" comments as I drive by people.”
