Own A Classic Air-Cooled Porsche 911- This Beauty is Selling Tuesday on Bring a Trailer

This meticulously maintained 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is set to auction this Tuesday with just 52k miles on the odometer.

A pristine 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa G50 is hitting the auction block this Tuesday on Bring a Trailer, offering classic car enthusiasts a chance to own a piece of automotive history. This air-cooled marvel, a symbol of Porsche’s engineering excellence, comes from a lineage known for its iconic design and thrilling performance.

Originally finished in a distinctive Nougat Brown Metallic, this Targa has been under the care of just two owners since new, showing a well-preserved odometer reading of 52,000 miles. Its journey began with its original owner who cherished it until 2014 before passing it on. The vehicle boasts a black Targa roof panel that complements its Mahogany leather interior, exuding a timeless elegance. Modern comforts such as air conditioning, power windows, and a Blaupunkt cassette stereo ensure a blend of classic aesthetics with contemporary convenience.

Under the rear hood lies a robust 3.2-liter flat-six engine paired with a G50 five-speed manual transaxle, promising the raw, engaging driving experience that Porsches of this era are celebrated for. The car's mechanical integrity is affirmed by detailed service records dating back to 1993, underscoring the meticulous maintenance it has received over the decades. A full repaint in 2010 and recent updates, including new hood struts and a refreshed windshield washer system, have kept this 911 looking as striking as ever.

Scheduled for auction in Arizona and listed by a dealer on consignment, this Carrera Targa comes complete with its original manufacturer’s literature and a clean Illinois title. Whether for spirited Sunday drives, car show appearances, or simply as a cherished collectible, this 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa G50 represents a unique opportunity to invest in a piece of motoring royalty.
