Supplied new by Charles Follett Porsche, London and first registered on the 9 March 1988, this spectacular 911 Carrera Targa Sport model had been ordered in Venetian Blue Metallic complete with blue, partial leather, sports seats piped silver grey.

At the time of cataloguing the speedometer indicated just 36,751 and this is supported by a complete and detailed account of the car's history in a substantial history file. The impressive leather-bound record includes the original purchase order, a wealth of old MOT Certificates, invoices for maintenance over the years, PCGB paperwork indicating that this example won ‘most original 911’ at the Porsche Club festival in 2004 and 2005 at 30,000 miles, 3.2 Register membership and so on. Also included is the original Porsche book pack with original service book and a spare sets of keys. A clean HPI report shows just 3 previous keepers

In summary, this is a beautiful, low mileage, 3.2 Targa finished in a lovely colour combination, clearly well looked after over the years, correctly stored and offered from a significant collection. A Porsche 911 from this generation represents a fantastic ownership experience as they have great build quality, drive well, look fantastic and with fairly basic mechanicals should only require routine maintenance. Of course, you need to source a good example and this particular 911, we believe is one of the best likely to come to market for some time and offered with an appealing guide could turn out to be a great investment.

This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
