Gorgeous 911 Targa has been restored by Porsche professionals



Back in 2013, Porsche GB asked all of its dealers to find a car worthy of being restored by the manufacturer's team of experts.

After an extensive, country-wide search, Porsche Brooklands came out on top after discovering a 1988 911 Targa 3.2-litre in a terrible state.

The car was bought and wheeled into the company's workshop, where it was totally stripped back. The Targa was completely deconstructed, with the team taking every major component out before separating them into their constituent parts.

Each individual item was then cleaned, polished and put back together. If it was deemed beyond repair, Porsche sourced the correct part and replaced it. The whole process took a dedicated team eight months to complete, and the result is arguably the finest classic 911 Targa in the world.

The car was built for display at the 2014 Classic Car Show at the NEC in Birmingham. It was then put on display at the Brooklands showrooms until the current owner bought it in 2015.

Since then it has been stored in a climate-controlled garage and had an official Porsche retro-style radio and satellite navigation system fitted.

The original owner pack comes with the car and Porsche has issued a new service history booklet – this is technically a new car, after all. It also comes with a hard back book detailing the restoration, as well as a framed print of the car.

The 911 Targa will go under the hammer at the Brooklands showroom on November 26 with an estimate of £74,000 to £85,000.
