|Estimate||£35,000 - £45,000|

- Recently serviced
Known internally as the 964, Porsche's new generation 911 debuted in 1989 and was available in two (Carrera 2) and four-wheel drive (Carrera 4) guises with its familiar silhouette clothing a radically revamped platform. Boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.32 thanks to its deeper bumpers, smoother sills and flatter floorpan, high-speed stability was maintained by the self-deploying rear spoiler which rose above 48mph. Powered by an extensively reworked 3.6 litre air cooled flat-six equipped with twin spark plugs per cylinder and a re-mapped Bosch Motronic fuel injection, the 964 claimed an impressive 250bhp and 229lbft of torque. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph.
Presented in metallic Rhodamine Red, a rare colour combination, this 964 was originally registered to Mr Peter Graper in South Africa where it remained for just three years until being imported to the UK in 1998. Since 2019, under the current owner, the car has been used sparingly and spent much of its time in storage in London, as prices for 964 rise, but we are told it has a comprehensive service history up to 2018 and again prior to auction, details of which can be seen in the history file. Supplied with a V5C registration certificate, two keys, an MoT test certificate valid until June 2023 and fitted with a TOAD alarm, this is a very desirable 964 Targa in a very distinctive colour sure to stand out in a crowd.
