This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is finished in Gemini Blue Metallic and comes factory equipped with optional Sport Seats, Sport Shock Absorbers, Fuchs alloy wheels, a short-shift gear lever, and a limited-slip differential paired with its 5-speed G50 manual transmission. It was acquired by the seller in 2014 and underwent a complete restoration which was carried out over the next 4 years including a bare metal repaint, new suspension and brakes, an engine and transmission rebuild, a new A/C system, and a custom Saddle leather interior. This 911 has been driven approximately 2k miles since the completion of the restoration and is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Florida while showing under 99k miles on the odometer.
This 911 was completely disassembled and sandblasted before being refinished in the classic 1970s Porsche color of Gemini Blue Metallic to match the owner’s 1973 Porsche 911S. The removable Targa top was rebuilt by Dave Brown and some subtle modifications were made including a polished stainless-steel roll bar and matching headlight rings. Other equipment includes a front valence with a chin spoiler and integrated fog lights, a fixed rear Carrera spoiler, a polished tailpipe, and factory 16” Fuchs alloy wheels. New Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires were mounted in January 2023 and the exterior is preserved with clear paint protection film on the front bumper cover and the forward portion of the hood. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin has been completely redone with new Saddle leather upholstery as well as a black leather dashboard and rear speaker shelf, new custom carpeting, and a re-covered leather steering wheel. Accessories include optional Sport Seats with electric height adjustment, a short-shift gear lever, custom Coco floor mats, a central locking system, power windows and mirrors, a heated rear window, automatic heater control, climate control, and a HiFi sound system paired with an original Blaupunkt Reno SQR 46 radio. The seller notes the A/C system has been overhauled, and all gauges and accessories remain fully functional.
Rated at 217 HP, the air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine has been rebuilt by Gulf Performance along with the 5-speed G50 manual transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This 911 came factory equipped with an optional limited-slip differential and Sport Shock Absorbers, and the seller notes that the suspension and braking systems were replaced during the restoration. The car is said to have been regularly serviced since the restoration and all corresponding records are included with the sale.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, an air pump, an extensive collection of records, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This Porsche was purchased for my wife with the goal of a complete restoration and slight retro mods. to match our 1973 Gemini Blue Metallic 911S. Unfortunately, she only drove it on a few occasions and opted for a Macan. It has been driven less than 2000 miles since completed and came in first place in the one concours event we entered. This car has always been stored in my climate-controlled warehouse and regularly exercised.”
