Porsche 911 Targa

I collected this car from Porsche Glasgow. It was in for a service & mot. They brought the car around to the front door with the top down it was a glorious sunny day & as I popped the ray-bans on I just knew this was going to be an enjoyable experience, I wasn’t wrong it was fabulous, sometimes when your so busy you can forget the simple but important things like enjoying yourself !

My 1st ever Porsche was a 911SC Targa in white. My heart ruled my head & in my anxiety to own a 911. I purchased a transit van load of trouble so when I sell you a car Ive been through the pain on your behalf.

The car on offer here is a true survivor & in beautiful original conditions. let me list some of the things that are import when it comes to originality & on my must have tick list before I look at the general condition. How original is the car? lets find the labels or factory stickers. Under the bonnet is a great indicator of the cars general conditions. On the underside of the bonnet is a factory build/option code showing the vin number, this is a paper sticker it came in 2 parts, one went under the bonnet/hood the other went in your service book (these details should match) if the bonnets been replace or painted on the underside this will be missing. A factory stamped vin is on the floor behind the spare wheel well (painted over in matt black) check the number with the V5 & make sure the font hasn’t been altered, you’ll find a riveted aluminium vin plate on the o/s inner wing (again showing the vin number). The spare wheel has a date stamp showing the month & year it will be within the build year of your car. The car came with a tool roll, compressor, tyre pressure gauge, jack, plastic bag for putting your punctured rim in & disposable gloves for changing the tyre.The general condition of the rear of the front panel in front of the spare is a good indication of the rest of the cars general condition, generally grubby with surface rust & missing paint around the battery area, any damage on the back side of the panel or chassis legs would indicate accident damage. This car has its original paint under here & is immaculate, all its originals tools, compressor etc (total joy for an anorak) I start to look for other signs door mirrors have a tiny wee grommet covering a hex bolt almost always missing (both in place) which says the doors have never been apart. ‘A’post still has the yellowish factory wax/grease on the hinges & in the middles where the courtesy light switch operates there is a round grommet/cover almost always worn through (not on this car).The ‘B’ post on the N/S has a paper factory sticker its a bar code which also shows the vin number, I then lift the carpets to look at the floor & I happily see the factory paint unusual once again as badly looked after Targa’s have a tendency to Leak & when the carpets get soaked the floors rust up. Under the engine lid on the slam panel the factory foil stickers are all in place. Other hidden vin numbers are stamped inside the cockpit but for security reason I won’t disclose their location & only need checking if there is any doubt to the car identity. Finally I look at the mileage then I look at the over all condition of the interior to see if it coincides with the mileage. I look at pedal rubber wear, carpet wear to the right of the accelerator, general carpet wear, driver seat bolster & piping wear. Steering wheel wear. A well cared for Porsche of this era shouldn’t show any excess usage under 100k miles
