45k-Mile 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Targa G50

Among the rarest and most desirable versions of the Porsche 911 Turbo, this 1989 930 Targa is one of just 109 examples produced for the United States and marks the only year the 930 Turbo was equipped with the 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. It wears traditional Guards Red paint over a Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior and features an optional limited-slip differential, shortened gear shift lever, amplified stereo system, and supple leather seats. The car was sold new by Avon Motor Cars in Connecticut and remained under the care of its second owner, a PCA member, from 1999 to 2014 when it was acquired by the seller. Benefitting from a major recent service and accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this rare final-year 930 Targa is now being offered for auction by its third owner out of Connecticut while showing approximately 45k miles on the odometer.

This 930 is finished in Guards Red with a removable black Targa top. The Turbo-specific bodywork includes a distinctive Tea Tray rear spoiler, wide fenders with black stone guard decals, and a front valence with integrated fog lights and a lower chin spoiler. The aftermarket 17” Fuchs-style multipiece wheels have been dressed in a set of brand new Sumitomo tires and the seller describes the exterior finish to be in very good overall condition. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The Cashmere Beige and Black partial leather interior is appointed with optional supple leather seats from the factory as well as a shortened gear shift lever and amplified sound system. The hood struts were replaced during a recent service along with a recharge of the A/C system. Minimal signs of wear are noted, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories are fully functional including the original factory radio.

A turbocharged and intercooled 3.3-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 282 HP and 289 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox and a factory-optioned limited-slip differential. The car has been meticulously maintained under the care of its long-term second and third owners, and a recent service completed in August 2022 included new brake hoses as well as an engine leak-down test.

This sale will include owner's manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, service records, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean Montana title.

    Good afternoon all,,
    My sincere thanks to all who have make comments, to the folks who actually came and saw the car, to the bidders, and to all that have viewed this car. As described it really is a special Porsche and one that I will miss seeing in my garage or on a special occasion stretching its legs. But hopefully someone else will be able to enjoy ownership as I have since 2014.
    Happy Bidding!!

  • Billythemountain (registered bidder) 2 weeksago

    Lovely car, I own an'86 so it's killing me to see a '5' on the knob...tell @Jpkapesq not to pass up a trip to Wooster St. in downtown New Haven for a white clam pie @ Pepe's.

    Thanks for your interest.
    Today probably would not work, however tomorrow is good by me until 3 pm. We are in Bethany Ct, pretty easy to get to from ferry in Bridgeport Please let me know what works for you

  • Jpkapesq 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    Good morning. Id like to see the car in person. I live on long island. Can this be arranged?

  • TurboDXB (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    The stance looks great. Are you running spacers front and back?

  • Major (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @vengerider Again thank you for your continued interest in my car. I can tell you that she drives, rides, and handles very well on both highway and back country roads. Any work, setups, corner balancing, or whatever that has been done for either the second owner or myself, has been done by one of two independent most respected shops here in Ct. Cheers!,

  • vengerider (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    I am not familiar with the stock suspension so hard to say if stock or not. Ride height looks lower but it's riding on larger wheels so, again, hard to see if lowered. It's more aesthetics to me as to what's been changed. Let's leave it at that and see where this ends up.

  • Major (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @vengerider sorry for delay-in responding.
    I have not changed any of suspension and believe that it is original. If you have any other specific questions on the suspension. I will attempt to answer or have my shop address for me to answer,
    Again, thanks for your interest. A little about me, am a 25+ year PCA member very active in my region. Am a National DE instructor and a club racer.have a modest collection that I totally enjoy.

  • vengerider (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Major Thanks for the response. I see the car is riding on Bilstein's. Which version are they and are there any other suspension changes or mods on the car? Thanks

  • Major (seller) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    @vengerider Hello, thanks for your interest in my car.
    No, I do not have the 16” original rims. To my knowledge the exhaust is original .
    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

  • vengerider (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    @JMS935 Do the original wheels come with the car, is that the original exhaust? Looks like factory heat exchangers but not sure on the rest.

  • Major (seller) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    @JMS935 Thank you , you are 100% correct, will be corrected.

  • vengerider 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    Bid in the amount of $130,000

  • JMS935 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    There’s no such thing as factory 17” wheels for a 930, nor did they come in a 3 piece wheel either.

  • Major (seller) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    Good morning. Thank you for your interest in my car. Please contact me so we can make arrangements for you to come see this 930.

  • Nick997 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Would like to come see this next week. Maybe Monday. Are you available?

  • TheGerman 2 weeks, 5 daysago
