Sold new here in Ohio, owned and serviced locally, this Black/black 1987 911 Targa comes for sale from its owner of over 20 years. It is in original and un-modified condition, right down to the Blaupunkt head unit and original door and rear deck speakers. The service booklet is stamped with services done at the Porsche dealer up through 1992, and paper receipts are included through present day.
The 1987 is the first year of the much-improved and very desirable G50 transmission, which was a stronger gearbox with shorter throws and crisper shifts than the 915 which it replaced.
This particular car is finished in Black with black interior, and is very clean inside and out. The exterior paint is all original sans the driver's front fender, which was refinished for a small repair next to the headlight trim ring. Paintmeter readings confirm consistent factory thicknesses on all other panels, and all original factory stickers and VIN tags are present, including the underhood option sticker. Factory options include front and rear spoilers and the somewhat rare limited slip differential.
The interior is very clean with only minimal wear consistent with the 54k original miles. The dash is straight with no cracks or warping, and the seats are firm and the leather supple with no tears and only minor wear on the driver's outside bolster.
The car starts, drives, and shifts smoothly with no drama, and the A/C blows cold having just been recharged.The tires have good tread but could be replaced due to age. The Fuchs wheels have recently refinished centers, and the outer rim has a chrome plating which looks good but is starting to show pitting. The underside of the car is dry with no leaks, and free of any corrosion. The previous owner used it as a sunny-day summer driver, and claims that in his 20+ year ownership of the car, he is pretty sure it never saw rain.
Overall, this is is a very solid example that's about as original as they come, with the only departures from original being a Clifford, umm, 'period-correct' alarm system, and the chrome-plated outer rims. It is up-to-date on service and ready for the new owner to enjoy. Original books, stamped warranty/maintenance booklet, keys, complete tool roll, spare tire, and jack are included with the car.
