Representing a notably small portion of the total 997 production run, the Targa model was available with all-wheel-drive only and was the final 911 Targa to feature a sliding glass roof system and opening rear hatch. Featuring a Meteor Grey Metallic finish over Brown Natural leather upholstery, this 2008 example offers a Tiptronic S transmission, 19” Turbo wheels, a Sycamore multi-function steering wheel, the Sycamore Package, Power Seat Package, stainless steel exhaust pipes, and more. Showing under 30k miles on the odometer, this 997 Targa 4 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Ohio.

This example comes finished in Meteor Grey Metallic and can be distinguished as a Targa by its sliding glass top and unique chrome accents along the roofline. Optional features include stainless steel exhaust pipes and 19” 911 Turbo wheels with Michelin tires that were mounted approximately 3 years ago. The seller adds that clear paint protection film has been applied to the front end, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

Inside, the cabin features premium Brown Natural Leather upholstery accented by optional Sycamore trim on the dashboard, gear selector, brake handle, multifunction steering wheel, and rear center console. Other equipment includes the Power Seat Package, Porsche-crested headrests, a footrest in aluminum, self-dimming mirrors, and a remote 6-disc CD changer. The seller adds that all gauges and electronics are working properly.

This 997 equips a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine that produces up to 325 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through a 5-speed Tiptronic S transmission, allowing for acceleration from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5.3 seconds. The CARFAX report shows a total of 27 service history records, many of which were carried out by authorized Porsche dealers. The latest service is shown to include a maintenance inspection, oil and filter changed, air filter checked, fluids checked, tires and pressures checked, and body lubricated in September of 2021 at 27,642 miles.


This sale will include a clean title. 


The seller would like you to know: “I’ve kept this Targa 4 stored in a climate-controlled garage. I had it serviced locally at 27k miles and it was previously serviced by Porsche of Beechwood.”

    How long have you owned the car? I was looking at the # of owners in Ohio (on the carfax) and was just trying to figure out the transactions (vehicle for sale, sold, purchased). Thanks!

    @Gabby Thank you, I see it there now. I appreciate the effort.

  • Gabby (seller) 11 months, 2 weeksago

    @amor1064 The video of the roof opening and closing has been placed on the website so you should be able to check it there thanks for your interest Hope it works out for you let me know if you are unable to get it

  • amor1064 (registered bidder) 11 months, 2 weeksago

    @Gabby I saw your reply from this site but didn't see any additional photos or video uploaded with the content. I'm sure it works, just thought its (the roof) the main feature for this version so it was odd it wasn't featured in your video or photos. I also live in Ohio, but southern part of the state. May help with logistics should I bid/win. Thanks.

  • Gabby (seller) 11 months, 2 weeksago

  • AK9eleven (registered bidder) 11 months, 2 weeksago

    I’ve owned this same car and had a lot of issues w rattling from the glass targa roof. Any issues w your car ?

  • Gabby (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @amor1064 I have taken a video of both the roof and the sunscreen opening and closing I sent a copy of that to PC market I don't know if I can send that to you my phone is not very complimentary to things but I will try to do that if possible okay but I do have the pictures and if nothing else they should be able to help you on Monday again thanks for viewing this and I hope it works out for you

  • Gabby (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

  • AlanSD114 11 months, 3 weeksago

    Nice one, not a fan of tan, but these are great cars. The automatic is arguably bullet proof and perfect for an old dude like me

  • Gabby (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @amor1064 thanks for your comment about the car I appreciate it I am getting a new one at the end of the month that's why I'm selling this one I do not have a picture that you would like but I can assure you the roof opens and the sunscreen opens and closes beautifully I will try tomorrow to get my son to help me One of us hold the button and the other one to take pictures of it so I'll see what I can do and send that to you thanks again for your comment

  • amor1064 (registered bidder) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    Nice looking car. Do you have any additional images of the Targa top being deployed (long range verse the tightly cropped photo in the gallary)? Perhaps a running video too? Thanks and good luck.
