Up for auction is a 1-owner 1997 Porsche 911 Targa. The 993 Targa was a staple in Porsche history due to its unique design and innovative technology. Featuring a handful of model specific options, the 993 Targa is one of the more stand out models produced by Porsche. This example was sold new in California and has remained there with its one and only owner since. Showing 81,358 miles, this car has been garage kept, well maintained, and well cared for throughout its life.
The rarely seen Ocean Blue Metallic paint is said to be original aside from a professional respray of the rear bumper. The paint is stated to be in above average condition for its age and mileage with only a few minor dings and dents present. The photo gallery will show the true condition of this vehicle's exterior.
Many design elements of the Targa separate it from other 993 trims such as a factory rear spoiler, fully retractable panoramic targa roof, and 17” 5-spoke Targa wheels.
Inside, you will find one of the most rare interiors of any Porsche 993. The full black leather is complemented by custom ordered grey supple leather seating and custom wood finish on the gear lever and emergency brake. Additional factory options include: HiFi sound package with 8 speakers, AM/FM Radio Cassette Player, and 6-CD remote changer. The interior is said to be in well above average condition with all electronics working as they should.
