The 911 Targa is the ultimate compromise for people who want to drive top down as much as possible without the 'disadvantages'. There comes the grand and unique rear window in the picture, which will protect you from wind, and the strong Targa hoop will protect you from more substantial troublesome issues. Furthermore the classic 911 Targa has now established photo model status. Popularity of the model, especially when considered Porsche gave the new 991 the same characteristic Targa roll hoop, is on the rise. With a production of one Targa in four Coupes remarkably rare too. In the world of air-cooled Porsches the word rarity guarantees a continuous appreciation. That is not what she is sitting in your garage for, although it is a pleasant addition. This nice example is an original car that remained in first paint when acquired by us, after heavy debating and inspecting of the 37 year old paintwork, which had packed up just a little too much traces of usage over the years, made the decision to repaint the car. The car drives superb. She feels like a 911 that has just finished 100.000km. She feels better than some 'abandoned' exemplars with fewer kilometres. Evidently there have been continuous investments made into this 911 SC Targa. And that noticeably pays off.
Options barely existed at that time. The car has electric-power windows, real leather upholstery, 16 inch Fuchs wheels, a radio/cd player with detachable front, etc.
A damage and rust free 911 from 1980 is not an easy find. The body may have been galvanised, even that does not guarantee for complete original solid bodywork. This well preserved SC remains totally rust free. Paneling is straight, alignment of panels fully symmetrical and the doors shut light and easily. The Targa roof panel fits perfectly snug on behalf of recently renewed rubbers. The car's repaint was commissioned by us, and is only noticeable by the deep lustre of the paint. Therefore throughout no external damages or traces of usage
A couple of years ago the upholstery of this here SC was renewed. Driving with the hood down often has a significant effect on leather. Skilfully and with the usage of correct materials the seats, door cards and rear seats got reupholstered. The seats also benefitted from new inserts so now the shape and support is excellent again. On the floor new velour carpeting. All neatly in original colour. The steering wheel dressed in leather, switches, dashboard and gauges are all undamaged and function accordingly.
Neat engine compartment where the direct surrounding also display the white exterior colour. Here one finds the original 3ltr. Boxer engine that functions perfectly. Original factory stickers remain in place. Beautifully running engine with excellent oil-pressure. In the boot one finds a space-saver, jack and tools, as it should be. The original 16 inch Fuchs wheels are completely damage free. Tires as good as new.
Sold new in the 1980s in the USA. Brought to the Netherlands last year by a Renowned Porsche Aficionado who keeps a moving collection and occasionally sells one of his over complete cars. Its heritage makes sure the engine has not been 'floored' hence strong maximum speed regulations by American law, besides that, the climate there assured no rust was formed. Exterior-wise the car looks completely European. Evidently a very well maintained 911 SC. Delivered with Dutch registration, new MOT and servicing.
