THE PORSCHE 911

A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. Two years after the original Coupe's introduction, the convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honor of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic - arrived in 1966. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections which were stowable in the boot. The ever-popular Targa would continue well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This US-market 911SC 3.0 Targa was completed at the Porsche factory in November of 1981, as a 1982 model-year car. The Porsche was finished much as it appears today, in a lovely Hellblaumetallic (light blue metallic) exterior, over a black interior.

According to the CARFAX report on file, the light blue 911SC Targa resided in California in the early 1990s and appears to have remained here ever since. Showing just over 69,000 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging – a figure that is indeed believed to be the original mileage – the SC Targa presents in lovely condition throughout and gives you the feel of a car that has been well cared for since new. Correct black-center Fuchs wheels are fitted and shod on Michelin tires, and inside a set of classic Coco mats are in situ. Many factory decals and markings remain intact in the various compartments, and the car has a very clean and tidy appearance. A very usable "young-timer", this fine 1982 Porsche 911SC 3.0 Targa offers brisk performance and an abundance of torque on tap from the overhead cam six-cylinder engine. Ideal for Sunday drives or participation in the many Cars and Coffee events around the country – or the Ramshorn Rally specifically designed for air-cooled Porsches – this classic Porsche Targa deserves serious consideration.
