There are very few cars that can boast a history anything like that of the Porsche 911. This was the gem of a sports car that simply blew everything away back in 1964. Since then, the 911 has evolved over the years to become one of the world's true motoring legends. Without doubt, part of the appeal of this iconic model is that its soul has always remained true to the original design. Porsche started to manufacture the 'Targa' top 911 from the mid-sixties and kept it in production in various forms right up to the current Porsche 992 Targa. During the 911 Carrera 3.2 production era, all the non-Turbo variants - Coupe, Targa and Cabriolet - were designated '911 Carrera'. Cars from this era are powered by the familiar air (and oil) cooled, flat six-cylinder, 3,164cc engine producing 231 bhp and 284 Nm of torque, and fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Ignition and injection are managed by the Bosch Motronic system providing efficient and economical performance.
This particular 3.2-litre Carrera Targa is a German delivered example. Finished in rare Preussisch Blue metallic with a black interior, the car sports nice Fuchs wheels with brand new Pirelli tyres. As this is a 1986 model it has the most performant engine with the lighter and shorter geared 915 gearbox which results in the fastest accelerating 3.2 carrera.
The accompanying history file contains the service book which records only few services. History on this car starts in 2005 at 164.000km. After this; there are multiple invoices for parts and maintenance during its time in the Netherlands and Belgium. The most recent service and work is carried out by us. It received new paint, new rubbers, new tires, new carpeting, a major service, ... All necessary items for future driving pleasure.
Now having covered a total of 197.500 kilometres, the car is looking for a new owner. Targa-topped cars from the late eighties are probably the most affordable way into Classic Porsche ownership and this lovely blue Targa would be a great start.
