1987 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Targa


1987 Porsche 911 3.2 G50 Carrera Targa- 60k original miles!

Are you looking for a no-excuses 3.2 G50 Targa? Take a close look at this car…

This particular car was special ordered new in Lynnfield, MA and was slated for European delivery. The first owner picked the car up on June 12th 1987 at the Porsche Tourist Delivery Center in Stuttgart, Germany. The original owner kept the car until early 1992 having driven it just over 21,000 miles during his 5 years of ownership. It was then inspected, serviced and sold by Bellevue Porsche (later Barrier) in June of 1992. As a funny aside I worked at this Porsche store at this time and remember us selling this car! From here it has changed hands among a few local PCA members who have cherished, maintained and improved the car. I have an unbroken chain of documentation detailing meticulous care. I am happy to review that history with any prospective buyer.

When the car was ordered new he selected some highly desirable options, here is how it is configured:

  • Black Exterior
  • Black Partial Leather interior
  • Blaupunkt radio
  • Limited Slip Differential
  • Leather sport seats w/electric height adjust
  • 16” Forged alloy wheels
  • Automatic heating control
  • Cruise control
  • Sport Shock Absorbers
  • Alarm System 

The car is 100% stock and original with the only upgrade being Hella H4 Headlights with the correct relays installed, a huge improvement over the stock H5 headlights fitted to the US cars in 1987. The H4 is the same headlight fitted in other markets that were precluded by US law back in 1987.

The body and paint on this car have to be seen to be believed, it is simply gorgeous! Starting in 1987 Porsche was kind enough to start placing VIN tags on all the removable panels, which helps identify if panels are original. This car has matching VIN tags on every panel, including front hood, both front fenders, both doors and rear engine lid. I have also inspected the car via paint meter and have determined all of the panels are original paint with exception of the left and right front fenders read slightly higher than surrounding panels, although the are original panels. Being a black car and having original paint it does have some of the expected small rock chips/road blast. Even the windshield is OE! Overall this is easily a great candidate in a preservation class and certainly a top % car overall.

The black interior is without reproach. No ticky-tacky wear is evident anywhere and it features the oh-so desirable sport seats! Every switch, light, button, etc. works as designed. The cruise control works and the AC blows nice and cold having been recently converted to R134.

Under the front hood everything is just as you would expect. Option sticker underneath the hood, spare in jack in place, an absolutely pristine show quality tool kit, air-compressor, lay down plastic and gloves.  Its ready for you local concours!

Mechanically this car is absolutely outstanding. It’s one of the nicest driving 3.2’s I have had in a LONG time. The engine is completely bone dry, not a leak to be found anywhere. It makes great power and shifts like a dream. Both the engine and transmission are original to the car and the VIN tag on the bottom of the case matches. This car has been loved and it shows. Current mileage is 60,xxx Here are the recent maintenance items:

  • 59,339- Convert AC to R134, all new barrier hoses and charge system- blows cold!
