1985 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

During 1985, Porsche began offering the “Turbo Look” option not only on the Coupe models, but also on the Targa and Cabriolet. Buyers were now able to have all the sporty style of the Turbo without the maintenance and cost of the supercharged engine. Also new were standard power front seats, updated shift linkage, a new safety windshield, and standard central locking. If you’re selling your 1985 Porsche 911 and you have any of these options, be sure to market these to buyers. Having any combination of these options can not only increase value, but can also attract buyers to your particular Porsche 911. Buyers are also looking for cars that will be a good investment in the long run. Be sure to emphasize any maintenance or repairs you’ve completed over the years, as well as any components that remain original such as paint, interior, wheels, etc. As you may know, rust has plagued the early 911s. While many of the mid to late 1980’s models escaped the extensive rust of the early 1960’s and 1970’s models, be sure to document any rust or repairs to corrosion on the car. If you do not disclose these types of issues to potential buyers and they find the damage on their own, your credibility can be in jeopardy.
