DT: 1987 Porsche 911 Targa G-50

We are pleased to present this well-kept 1987 G-50 Targa.  One of the most iconic names in Porsche history, the Targa configuration offers both open-air cruising and a coupe-like driving experience with the top up.  Standing in excellent and highly original condition, this 1987 example is said to have been driven just 83k well-documented miles and is now being offered for auction by the selling dealer out of Miami, Florida.

This Targa looks absolutely stunning in its traditional Guards Red paint.  The seller indicates that this car has always been garage-kept and is said to have never undergone any paint or bodywork.  This 911 retains its original factory forged light metal wheels and Targa top that shows to be in clean, tear-free condition.  No unsightly flaws or imperfections are noted on the exterior with the exception of some minor wear on the Targa pillar from the top being taken on and off.  Overall, this 911 retains its factory intended appearance and shows to be in excellent overall condition.

Inside, the black leather interior remains mostly original with the exception of an updated Pioneer head unit, alarm and Escort radar detector.  The door cards, seats, steering wheel and dash remain original and in great condition, although the steering wheel and seats have undergone a minor re-dye.  This interior is truly well-preserved and serves as a testament to the level of care this car has received.  Factory options included on this Targa consist of the following:

  • Sport steering wheel with elevated hub
  • Radio "Monterey"
  • Central locking system
  • Automatic heating control
  • Automatic speed control
  • Alarm system
  • Velour carpet in luggage compartment
  • Catalytic converter

All accessories, gauges and electronics are said to be in good working order.

This Targa had an odometer change after it stopped working in 2001; the replacement was installed with the utmost integrity and has been validated by official documentation from Porsche to ensure there were no mileage discrepancies

Powering this Targa is a 3.2 liter air-cooled flat-six engine rated at 217HP.  Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a highly desirable and refined G50 5-speed manual transmission.  Internally, this Targa remains bone-stock with the exception of an aftermarket SW performance chip.  Service records from new are included with this car and the seller confirms that this Targa runs strong and shifts through all five gears effortlessly.

Included in the sale of this Targa will be the original window sticker, all associated documentation, original Blaupunkt radio, and service booklets with stamped intervals.  Also included is a clean Carfax report citing no accidents or serious mechanical issues.  This vehicle is being offered with a clear title and is ready for prompt delivery.

    @Curlyfro the car is now in Dealtank where buyers can make an offer in the same format as if they were to bid. This is our format for all cars that do not meet reserve. We appreciate the feedback, however, it is important to read the headings as when the auction ends it will either day “Dealtank” or “Sold.” Hope this helps.

    Great Targa, G50 makes all the difference on these cars.

    Car looks to be very well preserved and documented. Was able to speak with ASG to go over the car and its prior ownership. PCA Member owned its entire life.

    Good Luck to all

    @carsinc They pressure washed and paint corrected the car with zero leaks on the top. Thanks to Miami's unpredictable weather, the car also got caught in rain with no leaks in the top as well. Cheers.

    The Targa top is in poor condition and will leak air and water. The reinforcement on the inside is played out and stretched which has caused the vinyl to lift. Only fix is a full 4 Stage rebuild to renew. This problem is very common with older tops and can lead to top fly-offs. When tops fly-off frame parts break and these parts are very expensive from Porsche. Targadan

    @GillesB this car has zero paint work on the car. There are chips smaller than the tip of a pencil on the doors that have had the typical touch ups, however we received it and paint corrected it to perfection. Goes to show how important proper storage and care is for these paint jobs.

  • GillesB 3 weeksago

    Hi
    Are you certain 100% that this is the original paint. Paint looks “too new” to be original.
    Tks!

    @burnrubr The car has AC that works and blows cold. The vehicle also has cruise control, covered frunk, blaupunkt radio all seen in the options sticker within the vehicle literature and the inside of the hood. Original window sticker will also come with the vehicle.

  • burnrubr 3 weeksago

    please correct me if I was wrong: no A/C and has a cruise control?

  • ASGMiami (seller) 3 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Alfa-87 There was no failure reported in its history however this precisely what was done. They changed the shroud and fan as preventative maintenance. @mhall527 no need to worry! As seen in the pictures this car has every receipt since new for maintenance and even simple autozone purchases not pictured in the gallery (batteries, bulbs etc) hope this helps @mitchellDL

  • Alfa-87 3 weeks, 1 dayago

    In 1987 Porsche put a larger alternator on the 3.2 engine which put extra strain on the shroud and fan. Many shrouds started to crack and go out of alignment which also destroyed the fan. The red fan in question looks like it came off a 930 3.3 L

  • mhall527 3 weeks, 1 dayago

    @MitchellDL I was wondering the same about the fan. That isn’t a stock item from what I remember about G-50s back in the day. Minor bit makes me concerned that the engine has had other work/mods that are not discussed.

  • MitchellDL 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    What’s the story with the red engine fan?
