Up for auction is a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa. Finished in Hellbronze Metallic over a rich brown leather interior, this is not your average color combination. This is a very unique example that is being offered in excellent, turn-key, driver-grade condition.
This 911 had one quality re-spray in its original color (hellbronze metallic L966) that still shows to be in above average condition. This paint is free from any fading or major scratches. The Targa bar has been painted black. The seals are all solid and there are no replaced body panels nor is there any rust present. Detailed photos of the exterior can be found in the gallery.
The interior is in excellent condition for its age and mileage and appears to be completely original aside from the upgraded Sony head unit. The brown leather is complemented by special ordered factory sport seats and a full leather dashboard.
This Targa is equipped with its original 3.2L flat-six engine that produces 217 HP and 200 lb-ft torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via the desirable 915 5-speed transmission and is said to shift smoothly. Upon acquiring the vehicle in already excellent running condition, the sellers mechanic recommended and performed the following service items, making it as good as possible for its next owner:
The Car is currently sitting on factory 16” exterior color-matched Fuchs forged alloy wheels, front 6” with 205/55, rear 7” with 225/50. They wear a set of Bridgestone Potenza tires with a good amount tread life remaining.
In 1966 Porsche introduced the 911 Targa, a hybrid between a convertible and a coupe. This vehicle platform was the first of its kind and was named after the Targa Florio Road Race in Italy, where Porsche had many victories.
