A Porsche 911 Carrera G-model Targa from 1984 is offered for auction in this auction. The Targa was first registered with the VIN WP0EB0913ES161465 by the first owner in the USA, over the years the sports car from Zuffenhausen came to Germany – the seller himself imported the 911 from North Carolina in 2012. All measures for a successful registration in Germany were then taken, now this Targa has German papers. An exact history of the vehicle cannot be called up, which is why the so-called matching numbers cannot be confirmed either – but the seller assumes that it is. The Targa does not yet have an H-approval, according to the seller, the TÜV is valid until July 2023.
According to the current owner, after the car was imported to Germany, the Targa roof was completely restored and many seals were renewed. In 2010 the body was completely repainted in gold in the USA. According to the seller, this Porsche Targa has never been in an accident. Neither the front headlights nor the rear lights have any cracks, and there is no damage to be seen on the bumpers. At the rear, the huge turbo rear wing stands out, which is in very good condition. External modifications deviating from the original condition are not to be found on the exterior, and there are no signs of corrosion on the body.
Classic, chrome/body-colored original Fuchs rims in clean condition, together with Good Year tires – which according to the current owner are still 70-90% of their new condition – adorn the exterior of the Porsche. The brakes of this Porsche are also 70-90% of the new condition, in the area of the chassis there are apparently no deficits.
A mixture of the colors black and brown can be found in the interior of this 911 Targa: The 3-spoke sports steering wheel and the original seats of the Porsche were completely re-leathered in 2021, and the rear seats also got new leather. A few cracks in the brown dashboard are a defect in the interior, otherwise the interior of this Porsche does not appear to have any damage. In addition to electric windows, electrically adjustable mirrors and a headlight cleaning system, the equipment of the 911 also includes a Becker Traffic Pro car radio and larger loudspeakers are installed in the door panels and rear shelf. The seller mentions that the electric mirror adjustment and the headlight cleaning system do not work, but otherwise all controls do their job without any problems.
A look at the classic collection of clocks in the cockpit also reveals the mileage: the speedometer shows a mileage of 230,030 kilometers. This Targa has already been converted to German dashboards with a KM display. According to the information provided by the seller, the mileage can be partially traced. The available documents include a technical data sheet from Porsche Classic. The instruments can be attested to be working properly.
A 3.2-liter engine works in the rear of this G-model Targa, which in the US version delivers 207 hp – the boxer engine is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Porsche underwent a final service in July 2023. The most recent work carried out includes converting the high beam and headlight flasher to relay control.
The underside of the G-model can be discovered rust-free, unwelded, cavity-sealed and treated with underbody protection. A Targa from Porsche has long had a cult following, regardless of the series. The G-model impresses with its classic 911 virtues and the puristic and unfiltered handling. With this 911 Targa offered here, the turbo rear wing and the body painted in a gold tone cause a stir. In addition, the rust-free and, contrary to the overall mileage, very good condition of this Porsche 911 is convincing.
