Beginning with a 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa featuring a desirable G50 manual gearbox, this 911 has undergone a custom backdate restoration by its seller over the past three years including a long-hood nose conversion, widened rear fenders, LED lighting, a new custom exhaust, and a Burgundy leather interior with Sport Seats and RS-style door panels. Having been driven less than 500 miles since the project’s completion, this one-of-a-kind Targa is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Canada.
During the restoration, the car was completely stripped and modified with a classic long-hood nose section including a lightweight fiberglass hood and a 911S-style front bumper, widened rear fenders, and a fiberglass RS-style rear bumper with dual center-mounted tailpipes. The car was refinished in its original White paint color and features a custom twin-grille decklid, exposed torsion bar covers and oil lines, new LED projector headlights, chrome bullet-style mirrors, a custom red Targa top, bronze RS-style graphics, and new 8”x9” Fuchs wheels measuring 16” in diameter. The wheels are finished in a custom bronze color and come dressed in new Toyo Proxes tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with photos from the build process and a CARFAX report showing front-end damage incurred prior to the restoration.
Inside, the Burgundy interior features a pair of freshly reupholstered leather Sport Seats along with new matching carpets and leather RS-style door panels. Accessories include a wood 917-style shift knob, a three-spoke MOMO Prototipo steering wheel, heated and eclectically operated seats, power windows, air conditioning, and a vintage Blaupunkt radio. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
An air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 217 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. The motor has been paired with a custom exhaust system and new catalytic converters. The seller states a full service was completed as part of the car’s restoration including new fluids and spark plugs.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “We spent over 400 hours doing the bodywork, backdating, and making this car as it is today. Runs and drives well. All body panel work was done in metal.”
