1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2-Litre Supersport Targa
Item Details
Description
1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2-Litre Supersport Targa
Registration no. C740 KAR
Chassis no. WP0ZZZ91ZGS140939

• One of only 15 'C16', UK-supplied cars with M491 Supersport Equipment
• Owned by the present (second) owner since 2006
• 30,673 miles recorded
• Outstandingly original


Footnotes


Development of the Porsche 911 Targa proceeded in line with that of its closed coupé cousin, the most notable advances immediately prior to the manufacture of this 1986 model having included the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine for 1984. Although it remained an air-cooled 'flat six', the '3.2' was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system that at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. With 230bhp on tap, the new 'boxer' motor endowed the Carrera with a stunning level of performance, the bald statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph. Although it enjoyed a 52 horsepower advantage, the Turbo was only marginally faster, having a top speed of 157mph, while most considered the normally aspirated 911 Carrera easier to drive.
For the increasing number of customers that coveted the Turbo's distinctive 'wide body' look but did not need its marginally superior performance, Porsche introduced the SSE package, also known as the Supersport, which could be specified for other models in the 911 range. In addition to the wide body, the SSE (option code M491) included the Turbo's spoilers; suspension; four-piston brake callipers; 16" forged alloy wheels; and low-profile tyres. Only 75 right-hand drive examples were delivered to the UK, of which a mere 15 were Targa models like that offered here.
This limited-series Turbo Look 911 was purchased by the current vendor (its second owner) on 26th March 2006 and has been kept garaged at all times. The car retains all its original sales paperwork from Lancaster Porsche listing the factory-fitted options: limited-slip differential; graduated top-tint windscreen; Pearl White piping, etc. It was displayed at Porsche Colchester at the launch of the Type 997 Targa and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche.
The vendor advises us that the car is in its original condition with all stickers and bar codes intact. Although it does not have full service history, all MoT certificates and road tax discs (until they ceased) are present. Currently displaying a total of 30,673 miles on the odometer, this rare limited-series 'Targa-top' Porsche is MoT'd to 4th September 2021 and comes with a V5C document.
