This Tobacco Metallic 1980 Porsche 911 Targa is said to have no body repairs or rust anywhere. The current owner purchased the vehicle back in 1991 and ended up selling it to a friend of theirs. In 2012 they bought the vehicle back and have only put 3,000 miles on it during that time.
The seller says that they the vehicle resprayed in its original color. During this time all of the rubber seals were replaced as well.
It is sitting on the correct Fuchs wheels but the seller does not mention the condition of the tires.
Overall the tan leather interior looks pretty good on this Tobacco Metallic 1980 Porsche 911 Targa. I didn’t notice any sort of warping or cracking present in the pictures provided in the original ad. All components do appear to be present as well.
The seats have been done in a Pasha checkered pattern but they do have seat covers on in the pictures so the overall condition is unknown. It should be noted that the seat cover was pulled up in one of the pictures exposing the bottom of the passenger seat which shows that the Pasha fabric has been separated from the left side bolster. The seller also notes that the material is easy to find and that anyone should be able to recover the seats.
This 911 Targa has 78,344 original miles and is equipped with a manual transmission.
Overall this seems like a great example of a 911 Targa and you really can’t go wrong with getting your hands on a rare color like Tobacco Metallic. Just reupholster the seats or replace them and you could be on your way.
The seller also notes that this Tobacco Metallic 1980 Porsche 911 Targa handles very well with the addition of some Weltmeister adjustable sway bars. The engine is free of any leaks and the timing chain tensioners have been updated as well.
