Chassis No: WP0ZZZ91ZKS140707
MOT: January 2024
Introduced in 1984, the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 was the last incarnation of the ‘pure’ 911 and was a replacement for the SC model, made between 1978 and 1983. The engine capacity was increased to 3.2-litres, Bosch fuel injection was fitted, and power was up to 231bhp, at least for the European market. With a lack of driver aids such as ABS and power steering, the Carrera 3.2 is said to offer one of the purest 911 driving experiences. Rarest of them all is the ‘Turbo look’ wide body, known as the ‘Super Sport’ in the UK. The lucky few buyers would have had to place their order through the ‘Sonderwusch’ (special wishes) programme and stump up in excess of £10,000 over the base price. Just 220 right-hand drive Targa examples were produced, of which just 14 were originally delivered to the UK.
This eye-catching, matching numbers example was delivered new via the UK distributors Lancaster Garages (Colchester) Ltd on 21st March, 1989, to a Mr. Beaching of Romford, Essex. Offered in very good condition throughout, the paintwork retains a deep shine and presents extremely well having been reputedly the subject of a full professional respray "over 20 years ago". The interior, including the dashboard and dials, also presents in very good condition; the leather having been 'reconnolised' by the previous custodian, around 2010.
Consigned to us after more than a decade of ownership; our vendor received 'F760 OFG' as a gift for her 21st birthday in August of 2012. Used extremely sparingly for summer fun; the Targa has covered a mere 800 miles throughout this time and has been stored in a heated garage for the duration. Maintained regardless of cost by technician Robin Taylor of Ninemeister Ltd, other works have included a replacement clutch fitted by GT Cars Ltd, Cheshire, in May of 2013.
Offered with a sizeable history file, including the original maintenance book (containing 17 stamps), driver's manual/pocket guide and previous MOT certificates dating back to 1994. Ready to now use and enjoy; this sensibly guided Porsche Targa is supplied with a UK V5C registration document showing just nine former keepers and a current MOT test certificate without advisories (valid until January 2024).
A very rare opportunity to purchase a privately-owned, low-mileage, original UK-supplied Super Sport Targa in its highly desirable original factory specification.
