Now up for auction is this 2015 Porsche 991 Targa 4S finished in Dark Blue Metallic over a two-tone Natural Leather Interior in Espresso/Cognac. Among the last of the 911 Targas to have been offered with a naturally aspirated engine, this 2015 example also features a desirable 7-speed manual transmission, a SportDesign front fascia, Sport Tailpipes, and other premium options amounting to an original sticker price of over $142k. Said to have been originally used as a company car by Porsche Cars North America, this Targa was purchased as a certified pre-owned vehicle by its second and current owner in February of 2017. Accompanied by an additional set of HRE wheels and tires as well as complete service records from the current ownership, this Targa 4S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Colorado with approximately 18k miles showing on the odometer.
The Dark Blue Metallic finish is reported to be in mostly excellent condition with 2 applications of ceramic coating applied under the current ownership. The lower front spoiler was previously replaced by Porsche for cosmetic purposes and clear paint protection film was also dealer-applied in 2017 over the forward half of the car including the front fenders, bumper, hood, mirror covers, and windshield frame. Some minor road-going wear can be seen on the PPF and the seller notes a small paint chip on the front hood underneath the film (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). In addition to its iconic Targa styling, this 991 is equipped with optional LED headlights in black, painted headlight washer covers, Sport Tailpipes, a SportDesign front fascia, and 20” 911 Turbo wheels that are currently dressed in Michelin Alpine PA4 winter tires. An additional set of aftermarket HRE Flowform wheels dressed in Pirelli P-Zero summer tires will also be included in the sale.
Inside, you will find a premium two-tone Natural Leather Interior in Espresso and Cognac with 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats Plus. Other factory options include ParkAssist (front and rear) with reversing camera, power-folding side mirrors, a multifunction steering wheel, Seat Memory Package, the Bose Audio Package, and Premium Package Plus.
This first-generation 991 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8 L flat-six engine that sends 400 HP to all four wheels through a visceral 7-speed manual gearbox. In this configuration, the Targa 4S is capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in approximately 4.8 seconds while carrying on to a top speed of over 180 MPH. This Targa has undergone all scheduled service from authorized Porsche dealers including a preemptive 40k mile service carried out at 14,242 miles and its most recent standard service at 18,317 miles. The seller also confirms that all recall items have been completed as of December 8th 2020.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, owner’s manuals, the original window sticker, extra floormats, an additional set of HRE wheels, and a clean Colorado title. A true modern driver’s car, this 18k mile 7-speed Targa 4S is sure to satisfy any discerning enthusiast.
