We are pleased to offer this unique 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Targa finished in Grand Prix White over a Linen leather interior. Being one of only 45 examples ever produced for the US market, the Turbo Targa remains one of the rarest air-cooled Porsche models to date. Accordingly, this example features a desirable G50 5-speed manual transmission along with low mileage, making it a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts alike. It is now being offered out of a dealer's collection in Reno, NV showing just over 37k miles on the odometer.
The Grand Prix White finish on this Turbo is said to remain in excellent original condition. A hybrid between two of Porsche’s most iconic 911’s, this Turbo Targa features a factory widebody along with a black Targa bar and wraparound rear dome glass. This example rides on a set of exterior color-matched Fuchs wheels that wear new Pirelli tires.
Inside, the driver is greeted with a Linen and Black leather interior that is also said to remain in excellent all-original condition. Noteworthy options include electronically adjustable factory sport seats, original Blaupunkt radio, air conditioning, amplifier system, a shorter gear shift lever and a raised steering wheel hub. All electronics and accessories are stated to be in working order.
This 930 carries a number’s-matching air-cooled 3.3L flat-six engine that is capable of producing 282 HP and 289 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a sought-after G50/50 5-speed manual transmission that features a brand-new OEM clutch. Equipped with limited slip differential, this Turbo can reach a 0-60 time of approximately 4.9 seconds.
The seller states that this engine was recently completely disassembled, resealed and refreshed at a cost of nearly $20k with only ~100 miles driven since. Full documentation will be provided in the photo gallery showing the work that was performed. With over $35k of records provided with the sale, this Turbo is said to be in excellent running condition with the only issue being minor transmission seepage.
