Sold new from the Bill Yates Porsche dealership in California, this 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa comes finished in Black over a Champagne Special leather interior and marks the first year of the desirable 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. It remained with its original owner in Monterey California before moving to Chicago with its second owner and eventually returning to the West Coast upon the seller’s purchase in 2020. Some tasteful upgrades and modifications have been fitted and the car benefits from an extensively documented maintenance history. Showing just over 132k miles on the odometer, this Carrera Targa is now being offered for auction out of Oregon.
This Carrera comes finished in Black with a matching Targa band and removable roof panel. A Turbo-style front chin spoiler has been added and the 16” Fuchs forged alloy wheels received a custom chrome finish. The car rides on a set of Dunlop Direzza tires from 2009 and an additional set of multipiece BBS wheels with newer tires is said to accompany the sale. Some small rock chips are noted on the front end as well as a blemish on the windshield cowl and thinning paint near the front hood air duct. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The black and Champagne Beige Special Leather interior was factory equipped with optional power-operated seats and has been adorned with a wooden 917-style shift knob and custom Coco floor mats. Factory equipment includes a central locking system, cruise control, and an elevated steering wheel hub. Aftermarket speakers have been installed and paired with a Blaupunkt Bremen SQR 46 radio. Some wear is noted on the carpeting near the driver’s dead pedal as well as the driver’s left seat bolster. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional apart from the rear window wiper which was removed under prior ownership.
As much as 217 HP is sent to the rear wheels from an air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine paired with a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. The car has been lowered to European-spec ride height and fitted with upgraded Bilstein dampers along with larger 22mm/29mm torsion bars. An upgraded Optima battery has also been installed. Extensive maintenance documentation is said to accompany the sale dating back to the original purchase with notable items including a new clutch and top-end engine rebuild at 104k miles, a new alternator at 118k miles, and a new windshield installed at 125k miles.
This sale will include a clean title as well as the original window sticker, toolkit, spare tire, air pump, car cover, and a battery charger.
