1985 Porsche Targa***SOLD***

26. October, 2014

This beautiful black on black 911 Targa started life in Los Angles Ca. on 8/14/1985. The original owner moved to PA. where it was garaged 6 mo. out of the year. It then went to Ct. where it was pampered and serviced at Danbury Porsche before  making its way back to California.The current owner has owned it for the last 7 years and has methodically  built this rust free 911 into an incredible ride.

He started off with period correct BBS wheels with rare Porsche centers and a 930 steering wheel. The suspension was then addressed with Bilstein struts, Turbo Tie Rods, Strut braces front and rear and stainless steel brake lines. It was then lowered to European specs and corner balanced allowing the Targa to handle as it should.

A Fabspeed exhaust system and Cup/K&N intake lets the engine breath properly and gives it an incredible sound.

The 3.2 liter engine has been replaced with a 3.4 liter that has been built to Porsche Motor Sport spec. This includes Mahl pistons and WebCam billet camshafts. The heads were flow benched and have bronze valve guides, racing springs and retainers. The bottom end was re-machined with new rod and main bearings, forged connecting rods, and hardened rod,main and case bolts. It also has a new Sachs heavy duty sports clutch. The A/C system has also been removed to make the car lighter. The engine replacement was done by Jay Jarvis located at Sonoma Raceway.The dyno sheet shows that it makes 30% more horse power than stock. Steve Wong / 911 Chips are also installed .

A Wevo shifter has been installed making the 915 transmission, which was rebuilt in 2012, shift very smoothly.

The audio system has been upgraded with a Clarion tuner CD head unit. Focal component speakers front and rear, second power amp for 2- 8″ subs tastefully installed in the rear provide  clear undistorted music with the Targa top off at 85 mph.

The car pulls hard between 2,800 and 6,400 RPM. Current redline is at 7,000RPM.

All of the stock factory parts ( exhaust, A/C unit etc.) are included with the car.

Having just passed California smog, this is an incredible oil cooled Porsche 911 that is meant to be driven and enjoyed.
