This 911 shows just shy of 99k miles and is offered with partial service records (that span nearly 30 years) and a clean Oklahoma title in the seller’s name.
The car was finished in Guards Red (L027) from the factory, and while there has been portions of the body have been repainted, the paint has a nice luster. The condition of the finish and theblack Targa top is shown up close in the gallery above.
Staggered-width 16″ Fuchs wheels feature black centers and anodized lips, and are wrapped in Cooper CS5 Ultra-Touring tires which were fitted in 2019. The clutch and brake pedal assemblies, rear brake lines, three brake sensors, and the steering column bushing were replaced along with a brake fluid flush and clutch cable adjustment in 2018.

The stereo powers on, but does not emit sound, and the air conditioner is not functioning.

To sum up this Porsche 911 Carrera; it is a fine example of the highly coveted 911 Targa. While it is not a $100,000 concourse restored vehicle, it is a well-sorted and great driving example that you could enjoy and use. With the values increasing drastically, it is getting harder to find an affordable 911 that can be enjoyed and driven as it was intended. I wish you the best of luck and Happy Bidding!
