Targa, 1996


  • VIN: WP0DA2999TS385384
  • Manual
  • One of only 462 U.S. examples sold in its inaugural year

This 1996 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera Targa, one of only 462 U.S. examples sold in its inaugural year, combines the sensuous looks of the 993 with the newly-designed Targa roof mechanism that replaced the folding fabric notched look of previous generations. Its black exterior, together with a beautifully personalized black leather interior, exhibits a stealthy demeanor. Recent service work includes new Brembo brakes, Zimmermann cross-drilled rotors, new brake hoses, new Pirelli P-Zero Rosso Tires, replacement of both engine lid struts and hood struts, replacement of shifter guide rod, ball socket and support bushings, installation of steering rack boots and front sway bar links, new Bilstein shocks, new rear suspension arms, and the installation of a front bumper protection bar. Fastidiously maintained, both mechanically and cosmetically, this 6-speed Porsche, with less than 109k miles on the odometer, is ready for its next owner.

The vehicle in detail

Its non-metallic black exterior is complemented by lightweight factory Porsche Turbo Twist wheels (18” x 8” Front and 18” x 10” Rear) with painted center caps, red 6-piston calipers, HID headlights, speed-sensitive split rear spoiler, rear bar with integrated brake light, reflective red panel between the rear taillights, the dual exhaust has been upgraded to a Fister Stage II exhaust system beneath the rear bumper, and the large sliding glass Targa panel that drops down and then under the fixed rear window electronically.

The black leather interior of this Targa features custom touches including an upgraded center console switch panel with LED lighting, newly reupholstered front (power-adjustable) and rear seats and door panels, red seat belts, and carbon fiber touches by M-A Carbon in Belmont, California – left and right 993 Door Map Pocket Lids, left and right 993 Door Latch Pulls, 993 Instrument surround panel and inside windshield trim. Also featured is a Pioneer BT Satellite Audio system with multiple speakers, automatic climate control, driver/passenger front airbags, and Rennline Aluminum pedals.

This 993 Targa is powered by a 3.6L air-cooled, flat-6 engine that produces up to 282 HP, that equal to the 1989 911 Turbo. Mated with a 6-speed manual transmission directing power to the rear wheels, this 993 reportedly achieves 0-60 MPH times of under 6 seconds. The top end of the engine has been rebuilt with a new clutch and this 993 runs phenomenal.
