1985 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa


It is rare to find a really good air-cooled Porsche 911 for under £30,000 but this 1985 Carrera 3.2 Targa certainly is. It is a delight to drive and feels really well sorted, with a strong engine and good gearbox.The engine was rebuilt by Porsche specialist JZ Machtech 40,000 miles ago, with receipts and photographs detailing the work, so you can ignore the mileage on the clock – not only has the engine only covered 40,000 miles, much of the rest of the car has been restored, too, making a superb example for a great price.

The Porsche comes with a massive history file, detailing all work done to the car over the years – and it’s an impressive read. Recent work of note includes a new clutch, four new Bilstein dampers, new engine ‘tinware’, new oil seals, gearbox oil change and more in 2018. In the same year, new rear lights were fitted. More recently, the car has just had a service and brake fluid change.

The bodywork is finished in rare and eye-catching Prussian Blue Metallic which offsets the original black Fuchs alloy wheels and rear Sport spoiler perfectly, while the original ‘elephant ear’ door mirrors have been replaced with the sleeker ‘Cup’ style. The Porsche has been featured in GT Porsche magazine.

Inside, the car boasts blue leather seats with contrasting white piping, all of which is in good condition. The Targa roof is also in good condition and benefits from new seals.
