The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars in the classic car market, and is also renowned as one of the best “first-time” collector cars. With more than 170,000 examples built throughout its long lifespan, buyers and budgets of all types can find a Porsche 911 to meet and exceed their expectations. The 1983 Porsche 911, popular for its newly released Cabriolet model, offers all the iconic styling, performance and luxury that Porsche collectors expect. The Cabriolet was the first true open-top convertible offered by Porsche since the release of the 356, and was widely popular both then and now. While a classic Targa model was often referred to as a coupe or semi-convertible because of its roll-bar superstructure and removable roof panel, the Cabriolet gave owners a true open-top option with a canvas top with zip-out window. If you’re selling your 1983 Porsche 911 Cabriolet or Targa, here are a few tips from the team of California classic car dealership professionals at


1983 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

If you have a Targa 911, you probably already know that the seals around the top are known for wearing out and need to be replaced every few years to keep water out. Reassure your potential buyers by providing documentation of maintenance and repair and by addressing this issue with them upfront. It is also widely known that the earlier Porsche 911 models had serious problems with the 2.7L engine. You can also attract buyer’s to your 1983 Porsche 911 by letting them know this model year was equipped with the newly released, more powerful, and problem-free 3.0L engine.
