Selling A Porsche 930 Targa

While the general public may not be familiar with the Porsche 930, just say the words “Porsche 911 Turbo,” and they’ll know exactly what you’re talking about. Manufactured from 1975 to 1989, the Porsche 930 (or 911 Turbo) is one of the most recognized sports cars in the world. The Porsche 930 Targa, launched during the 1980’s when the Porsche 911 was reintroduced to the American market, would offer a new glass roof design that eliminated the inconvenience of storing the removable top of the old roofing system. It would boast the body of a 911 Turbo Cabriolet model, yet would give owners a glass roof in place of the traditional fabric Cabriolet top. Seemingly quite rare, it is estimated that little more than 548 models of the Porsche 930 Targa were manufacture, while the Porsche Club of America has approximately a dozen registered in North America. Of course, this rarity plays a great deal in the overall value of these special classics. When selling your Porsche 930 Targa, educated buyers will be looking for features such as the 16 inch forged alloy wheels, power windows, tinted glass, heated windshield washer nozzles, a “soft look” leather interior, leather covered steering wheel, front and rear spoilers, integrated fog lights, stabilizer bars, air conditioning, three-point rear seatbelts and more.


Porsche 930 Targa Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your Porsche 930 Targa, you can count on educated buyers requesting a third party inspection to ensure they understand the overall condition of your classic, and that no secrets or pending problems are going to pop up after the purchase. If you are confident that the buyer is serious, you should make every effort to accommodate this request. Some sellers prefer to have the car inspected prior to posting it for sale and then share the inspection results with potential buyers. While some buyers will accept this, others will still want to have their own inspection performed. On the other hand, if you’re selling an example that needs complete restoration or is simply a rolling chassis, a simple walk-around may be more appropriate. Often times, however, buyers will reach out to you via the Internet. For these buyers, it is best to offer recent photographs or even a video walk around to accommodate the sale. For the Porsche 930 Targa in particular, buyers will want to understand the condition of the Targa top and whether or not it has any current leaks or areas that have been repaired. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team recommends for your Porsche 930 Targa classic. To learn more, connect with their team today.
