Description for Porsche 911 1988

This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is finished in Marine Blue over a Linen leather interior and was sold new in Florida, where it spent a year before going to Texas through 1994, California through 2009, then Nevada, and California again until present.Power is from a 3.2L flat-six paired with a G50 5-speed manual transaxle, and the car is equipped with a color-matched targa bar, forged 16″ Fuchs wheels, and factory Blaupunkt stereo.

The exterior is finished in its original Marine Blue (L35V) with a color-matched targa bar. There are some minor blemishes in the paintwork, including a touched-up scratch near the left taillight and another between the engine lid and rear window on the right side. Paint meter readings are provided from numerous locations throughout the car, and show consistent paint thicknesses between 5 and 10mils, please note the photos below of the readings. There are no signs of ANY paint work or accidents on the car.

The car is equipped with a rear spoiler, black targa top, and standard US-market lighting.Black-centered 16″ Fuchs wheels will be fitted with new tires prior to delivery to the new owner. The pictured license plate is shown for display purposes only, and a new plate will need to be procured for California buyers.
The cabin features Linen leather seats (NG) with matching panels and carpets contrasted by a black dash. A factory 4-spoke steering wheel is retained along with a Blaupunkt stereo system featuring speakers in the doors and rear parcel shelf.Some minor staining is visible on the carpets.
The air conditioning system is functional. Factory instrumentation includes a 160 mph speedometer, tachometer with 6,400 rpm redline, analog clock, and several auxiliary gauges. Just under 92k miles are shown on the 6-digit mechanical odometer and are original.

The air-cooled 3.2L flat-six was factory rated at 217 horsepower and is paired with a 5-speed G50 manual transaxle. The engine number is pictured in the gallery and is numbers matching. There is some degradation of theengine sound deadening pad and light moisture on the engine case. An oil and filter change was performed approximately 100 miles ago. Other recent services include new valve cover gaskets, fuel pump, and a new battery installed in July, 2018. Clean, no accidents or damages reported to Carfax. The car was listed as theft recovered in 1996 which did not net any damage. Partialservice records are available and the car has driven regularly in the past weeks in prep for sale and has been flawless. The trans and syncros shift wonderfully.

Feel free to ask any questions!
My standard disclaimer/mantra for any car regardless of service or price: The car is sold with no warranty. You are buying a used car. Eventually every car will break, if you find one that doesn't please let me know. I do my ABSOLUTE BEST to describe accurately the shape of the car, but keep in mind it is impossible to discuss every detail of a car for better or worse. I am not a dealer, just a guy who loves Porsche (among other cars) and hope to pass along my passion and fervor for these cars. That said if ever you encounter an issue I do my best to provide advice, direction or even parts if I have them. Please understand that it is a used car and will have minor signs of use. That means please do not expect a showroom brand new car. Please adjust your expectation level to that of a car that however is very good condition. This is a nice Porsche of this year, but please just remember that no car is perfect. It is though a clean, very nice Porsche! Please only bid if you intend to buy. If you would like to have an Ebay 3rd party mechanic service check out the car I MORE than welcome it. Please have the car checked out before bidding and not after, if you intend to use that service. And please, if you would like to utilize this service, contact me with more than a couple days left in the auction so we can arrange schedules. Please check your local laws and registration procedures before buying. Buying over the internet can be scary sometimes! I get it, because I am an enthusiast too!! For that very reason, I am more than happy to answer every and any question you may so you know 100% what you are buying. But, please ask any and all questions ahead of purchase! It is impossible to list every pro and con of a car, I am not an inspection service, it is your responsibility as a buyer to do your due diligence and inspect the car. All sales are final, you are buying as-is, the sky is blue, etc, etc. Sorry to have to give the boring speech!
