Up for auction is this nicely-presented 1985 Porsche 911 Targa finished in Guards Red over a black partial leather interior. Highlighting a removable targa top, Sport Seats, Fuchs wheels and an added factory tea-tray spoiler, this Targa possesses the nostalgic styling that is sought after by many enthusiasts.

Accompanied by original books and records, this 1985 example is now being offered for auction in excellent driver’s condition.
The classic Guards Red finish on this Targa is stated to remain in great condition with minimal signs of road-going wear.

Noteworthy features include an added factory tea-tray spoiler and upgraded 7” & 8” Fuchs wheels which come wrapped in fresh Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Inside, this 911’s cabin is upholstered in black with partial leather Sport Seats. The interior is shown to be in great shape for its age and mileage with very minimal wear present. Ready for its next owner, the air conditioning is said to blow ice cold and all gauges, electrical components and accessories are reported to be fully functional.
This 911 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2L flat-six engine rated at 207 HP and 192 lb-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual transmission making for a pure and unadulterated driving experience. An aftermarket B&B exhaust has been installed to provide improved exhaust flow and sound. The seller confirms that routine maintenance has been carried out by Black Forest in San Diego since their original purchase in the early 90’s. A major service was carried out in 2000 along with a transmission rebuild. This 911 stands in excellent running order, just waiting to go to a new home.
