For Sale: 1988 Porsche 911 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa has everything you love about the legend: unique style, premium flair, and a smooth feeling of properly maintained air-cooled flat-six. So when you see all the investments that have made sure this classic 911 remains a show-ready classic, you realize this is the pretty Porsche of your dreams.


The Graphite Metallic paint proves a Porsche doesn't have to be red to make a bold statement. It has the high level of luster you'd expect from a well-respected classic. This is part of a professional application that occurred in 2008. As you look over the whole car, you'll see a high level of investment and care that keeps this one such a memorable classic. So it's not just the big luster or radiant metallic that makes this attractive, but also it's in the way the light rolls evenly across all those iconic curves to show off a true German-level of precision panel fit. The full color package also proves this is the sophisticated Porsche. There's a well-coordinated tasteful black all around the car that includes the targa top, clean bumper trim, door handles, and rear grille that's a hallmark of these air-cooled 911s. And of course, the best classic Porsches get the black Fuchs 16-inch wheels.


Because the black trim looks so great against the exterior, when you take the top out, you get a full black interior. The interior was also refreshed in 2008, and when you pay for quality, it lasts. So the overall level of enduring value will make you think it was restored just last year. You sit down in the German-engineered bucket seat finished in supple leather. Ahead of you is an iconic Prototipo sports wheel by Momo Heritage. The VDO readouts remain crisp and clear, and the central tach is a grand tradition from Porsche's competition cars. While this 911 is obviously a driver's car, it doesn't skip on comfortable features. This includes power windows, an upgraded Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The whole car is clean and complete, right down to the tool kit in the trunk.


Lift the rear hatch, and see the best part of any 911. This is the correct 3.2-liter flat-six motor, and it's believed to be original to the car. These later versions have already earned a hardy reputation, and this one was rebuilt in 2011 as part of the overall commitment to quality in this example. The desirable G50 five-speed transmission was also rebuilt at the same time as the motor. So you have a three-owner actual-miles classic that has all of its best fundamentals given the investments you'd make if you had owned this since new. From a driver's standpoint, it gives you the confidence to take this coupe out on the open road anytime the moment strikes you. The manual transmission allows you to get the most out of the motor as you pilot the lightweight Porsche on your favorite desolate highway. Combine this with Porsche's legendary steering feedback, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy Bridgestone tires, and this classic 911 will teach you why it's an icon with every mile.


The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is the distinct, sleek, speedy, and absolutely classic 911 targa you've been waiting for. So you know you can't let it slip away. Call today!!!
