Up for auction is this 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa finished in Guards Red over a black interior. Having resided in Hawaii since at least 1992, this Targa is said to have been under the care of the seller’s father for over 20 years before the seller inherited the car about 4 years ago. It is said to have been maintained in very good overall condition including routine service from a local specialist. Featuring a 3.2 L flat-six engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox, this classic air-cooled Targa is now being offered by its seller in Hawaii while showing approximately 76k miles on the odometer.
The traditional Guards Red finish is noted to be in great shape except for a few minor cosmetic imperfections as depicted in the photo gallery. The paint is believed to be largely original aside from the passenger rear quarter panel which is suspected to have been refinished about 15 years ago following minor cosmetic damage. In addition to its signature black Targa bar and wraparound glass rear window, this example features front fog lights, headlamp washers, and iconic Fuchs wheels.
Inside, the black interior is said to have been kept in excellent condition. An aftermarket Kenwood radio has been installed along with upgraded Kenwood rear shelf speakers. The seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This Carrera is powered by an air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine that is capable of sending 217 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox. An assortment of service records is said to be included and the seller reports that proper routine maintenance has been addressed by a local specialist. This Targa is said to be in strong running order with a recent new battery and oil change; a fresh oil service will also be carried out prior to sale at the seller’s expense.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, an air compressor, and a clean title. Finished in Guards Red while sporting Fuchs wheels and a 5-speed manual gearbox, this 1986 example is the quintessential Targa of the 1980s, do not miss your chance to get behind the wheel.
