to To be the hit of every party you need to arrive in a car like today’s Good price or no dice Porsche Targa and operate its fancy top a few times. Let’s find out what is so could effectively cost the life of the party.
One can imagine if from yesterday 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara had been a unique model – you know, a â€˜they wonâ€™t build anything like thatâ€™ truck â€“ it might actually have been worth its $38,000 asking price. It wasn’t. And no matter how nice and few kilometers it was, the vast majority of you commented that there was nothing there guaranteed such a Price tag different than its bare Novelty. The fact that any number of more modern Wranglers could be had for similar or perhaps even less money led to this an overwhelming 96 percent No dice loss.
I think it’s safe to say that with its automatic targa top, sapphire blue paintwork and seven-speed manual transmission of today 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4 is indeed a fairly rare one Property.
That is seldom possible row-yer-own The transmission shares much in common with the PDK automatic/manual, as both were part of an effort by Porsche engineers to outfit the 991 with a new rear suspension and transaxle assembly that allowed the rear axle line to be moved beyond that by about three inches from the lead997. Along with a longer 96.5-inch wheelbase, the tames some of the 911’s most notorious handling characteristics. Add to that the all-wheel drive of the Carrera 4 model and it’s incredibly hard to get into trouble in one. All these Update meant a new platform for the 991, only the third ever 911 Story.
Of course, despite the massage, it’s still a bunch of monkeys to drive. The naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six produces a healthy 350 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque. Even with the Targa’s relatively fat 3,395 pounds to move, that makes for plenty of behind-the-wheel entertainment.
The Targa’s great claim to fame, however is the cool clamshell top that offers full weather and vandalism protection when closed and blows through your hair when open, and an audience-pleasing show of moving panels, whirring engines, and a magical disappearance/reappearance act in transition.
The car maybe see like a traditional 911 Targa with black soft top, brushed steel B-pillar bar and All-around back glass but the actuation is much more modern and the glass is double layered for soundproofing. And different from the original Targa, when closed the car is as safe as the coupe.
This one comes with a clean title and 31,171 miles showing on the instrument cluster. The Sapphire Blue Metallic paintwork shows no defects on the pictures, neither does the beautiful Porsche Crest factory alloys. These are shod with brand new Michelins which must have cost a pretty penny.
The cab is equally up to the task, with no notable signs of use or abuse apart from minor wear and tear on the driver’s seat side upholstery. Both seats are upholstered in leather, but the cowhide does not reach the dashboard. It also doesn’t appear to have the desirable Chrono package.
What an ad phonels What we do know is that the car comes with “nice papers and a clean carfax”. The soft top is said to work without any problems and overall the seller claims that the car doesn’t need anything. The asking price is a cool $99,500.
Now, before you drop a two in disgust at that number, please consider this depreciation of any issue of 911 seems to be a foreign word these days. This asking price is just a hair below the car’s original starting point of $102,595 plus destination. Sure, the selling price of the car was probably a bit higher due to the option, but that’s still not a huge age-related loss.
Or is the price just too high? What do you say, is this seven-speed Targa worth that $99?.500 ask how it is presented? Or does this price mean the death of the party?
