We are delighted and very proud to be offering for sale this wonderful 1985 911 3.2 Targa
Lovingly cared for with no expense spared, it has what can only be described as a dreamy history file, tracing back its roots to day one, and warming the heart seeing and hearing about the journey it has been on.
It began life with a Mr Scarborough who had ordered the car direct from Porsche Deutschland, with the unusual and now nostalgic specification of paint to sample 99V9 Mocha brown paintwork complemented by brown leatherette seats with flannel cloth inlays.
It is a C16 UK specification car, and Mr Scarborough took it home with him to Jersey where it lived until 2003, before then being acquired by a Mr Straughen who brought the car over to the UK and registered it for the first time on UK plates, Mr Straughen owned the car until 2013 when it then became available for sale through Philip Raby Porsche specialists.
Our client purchased the car on the 14th of June, and has given it his total love care and attention ever since, we have had the pleasure of assisting with its upkeep for the past 4 years and ensuring it stays as one of the best.
Anything that has wanted doing has been done, and the car benefits from a major cosmetic refresh to include full repaint, retrim of the seats and steering wheel with correct materials, we have recently removed and rebuilt the gearbox, renewing clutch and flywheel in the process, the dampers have been replaced with Bilstein inserts, correct size continental Premium tyres fitted to its original and wonderful 15” alloys, the exhaust has been replaced and the car is always treated to annual trips to OPC Cambridge for its oil service and inspection.
There history file is jammed full of invoices and receipts for work carried out, and will takes a good few cups of coffee to fully digest.
A “now rare” Certificate of Authenticity is presented in Porsche folder and there is a wonderful letter correspondence from current to previous owners, also documented in a Porsche club magazine feature.
The original book pack and all original supplements are in beautiful condition, the car is on its second genuine maintenance book, and all three keys still present too.
Finding a cherished and original car with a traceable history is virtually impossible at this price level, we are confident the car will pass the most detailed inspection and it will provide many years of great service with minimal spend required on maintenance.
We always say the cheapest car to buy will be the one you spent a little more on to begin with, don’t get tempted by an air cooled bargain unless you are prepared to spend the same again on its upkeep and restoration.
We invite viewing and test drives by appointment, classic finance can be arranged with our trusted partners, and we can assist with worldwide delivery, although would very much like to see the Targa again.
