This 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa comes finished in Gran Prix White over a Black interior and marks the first year of the desirable 5-speed G50 manual gearbox. Accompanied by extensive service history dating back to 1992, this thoroughly maintained Targa is noted to have spent time between California and Oregon before making its way to Canada in 2021, where an estimated total of $35k CAD was invested in refurbishment. This classic air-cooled Targa is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Canada.
This example comes finished in Grand Prix White with a removable black roof panel and matching Targa band. The seller adds that the Rennline Headlight Kit has been fitted, the suspension has been lowered, and a set of staggered-width Fuchs wheels have been mounted with Pirelli P6000 tires driven less than 2k miles. The seller also notes minor paint imperfections, and the paint meter readings indicate some areas of paintwork, detailed images are provided in the gallery. The CARFAX report shows an impact to the rear end although the vehicle was not damaged.
The Black interior has been customized with Sport Seats featuring pinstripe velour inserts along with mathcing rear seat inserts and a MOMO Prototipo steering wheel. Other modifications include a Porsche OEM Classic Radio and Boston speakers. All gauges and accessories are reportedly working properly, and the seller notes the odometer has been replaced under previous ownership and currently shows just under 4k kilometers (approximately 2,500 miles).
This 1987 Carrera is equipped with an air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine that sends as much as 217 HP and 195 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed G50 manual transmission. Modifications include a Bilstein B6 lowered suspension system and FVD items including an intake system with a MAF meter kit, performance chip and tune, headers, and exhaust system. The seller adds that service items carried out since 2021 at a cost of approximately $35k CAD include repairs to the DME, instrument cluster, air conditioning system, washer fluid sprayers, adjustments to the front wheel bearings, an alignment, belt replacements, and some oil leak repairs.
This sale will include a clean title.
Hello @550bryan, the service records show the car just over 200k miles in 2016, and though the car does show really well, one can assume the miles have crept far higher over the last 7 years.
Best wishes to the seller on a nice looking, well documented car.

Nice targa. looks relatively low miles which would be a plus. I know the speedo was recently changed but with service records going back 20 years there must be some ballpark on total miles on the engine/chassis?
@IslandNick I don’t see why not. We’ve shipped all over the world. We’ll get it to you!
@reserve416 I’m in Hawaii, any issue bringing this and registering it here?

Good Morning from the East coast. We’re very happy to offer this very well preserved and unbelievably documented 87 G50 Targa.
Most importantly about this car is the level you see it at today. Completed as a light resto-mod it benefits in roughly $40,000 in recent upgrades and service .
The retro looks with backdated interior and 15” custom finish wheels this Targa is ready for the roof to come off and blast down the open roads.

@Roma @Roma. The car has zero rust on the body work. A little surface rust on exhaust and suspension as captured in the images
Can the Seller plz comment on any corrosion?
@UncleBad thanks for your inquiry. So this car exports to the US very easily and we facilitate all for you. If you look up our past listings, 90% of those have landed in the US. This car exports to the US duty and Modification free as its over 25 years old. Bid to win, the only things you'll need to pay on top is $500 in brokerage and shipping to your front door! WE DO IT ALL!
We don't have the original exhaust and MAF system unfortunately. What you see is what you get. I personally have a G50 coupe right now and I will say that this Targa absolutely sings in comparison to my stock car! An amazing upgrade and all quality parts from FVD! VIDEOS coming by end of day!
The headlights are Rennline! Car also benefits from the Porsche Classic Radio and recently completed Ice Blast! And how sick are those custom finished 15" Fuchs wheels? The so beautifully finished!

How difficult would it be for an American buyer to bring this vehicle back to the states?
What aftermarket headlights are those?
Do you still have the original MAF, even though it caused some issues?
