November 2021 Classics Auction

 
  Lot 96
 

1989 Porsche 911 Targa
Remained in the same ownership for the last 11 years and boasts the desirable G50 gearbox.

Registration - F643 DRJ

Chassis No. - WP0ZZZ91ZKS140556

M.O.T. - October 2022

Odometer - 139,045

This undeniably handsome 911 ticks a lot of boxes. Its white bodywork is said by the vendor to be ‘unmarked’, while he regards the white-piped black leather trim as having a ‘lovely patina’. Overall, he grades the flat-six engine, five-speed manual transmission, Targa bodywork and paintwork as ‘excellent’, and the upholstery as ‘good’ – an impressive summary for a 32-year old car that’s travelled a total of 139,045 miles to date. As ever, the key lies in the ownership history – the Porsche only had five keepers prior to the vendor, in whose possession it has remained for the last 11 years, and it apparently comes complete with a comprehensive history file containing lots of invoices, which suggests it has been the subject of a suitable level of maintenance. It benefits from having the Sports specification, including the unmistakable so-called ‘whale’ tail, and boasts the desirable G50 gearbox. The vendor says ‘F643 DRJ’ ‘drives wonderfully’, and it would certainly appear to be a fine example of the much-loved breed.

Developed under the watchful eye of Porsche Chief Executive Peter Schutz, the Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the 1983 Frankfurt Salon – bringing the hallowed Carrera name back into use for the basic car rather than just the halo models. Visually indebted to the outgoing 911 SC, the newcomer wore a revised front valance complete with auxiliary driving lamps and a subtle Carrera script on its engine lid. Its 3,164cc flat-six engine developed 231bhp and, when allied to five-speed manual transmission, proved capable of sprinting the new Porsche to 60mph in 5.3 seconds.

In summary:

  • A very well presented example
  • Features the Sports specification and desirable G50 gearbox
  • Is expected to have a brand new MOT in time for the sale
