o Long term ownership Carreras and Targas
o Low ownership and mileage Porches
o A superb selection of 1970 and 1980 Porsche 911s

A wonderful selection of Porsche 911s from the 1980 heydays are to feature in the Classic Car Auction sale on the 3rd August, with Targas, Cabriolets and a Carrera G50.

The 1980s iconic car was the Porsche 911 with the large rear spoiler know as a Whale Tail and came to symbolise wealth and success. Some would say that this shape is the best and most sought after.

CCA have four wonderful examples coming to auction on the 3rd August at the Warwickshire Event Centre. Leading the selection is a 1986 Carrera 3.2 with the G50 manual transmission. This is a fabulous car with just two owners from new and a warranted 64,000 miles. Estimated at £50,000 to £60,000 this is a real time warp car supplied new by AFN Porsche in Guildford and recently recommissioned, it comes with a large history file and original keys.

Guy Lees-Milne of Classic Car Auctions commented: “This is a superb 911 and scores very highly in our condition report. It offers everything you could want from a 911, coming with the rare and desirable G50 transmission, finished in the preferred Guards Red, low ownership, what more could you want. A stunning car.”

Two years on we have a 1988 Carrera Targa in Ivory White which has been in the same ownership for the last ten years and is a lovely example of a 911. A UK supplied car with 99,500 miles and a detailed history, this car also won the East Midlands Concours in 1998 for Porsche Club GB. Estimated at £28,000 to £32,000.

If we take a step back to the late 1970s on offer is a 1978 SC Targa. Having just come out of long storage this is a 911 with lots of potential. A left-hand drive car finished in Minerva Blue and with the optional Whale Tail, it was imported from Holland in 1986 and been with the current owner for the last 23 years. With 91,000 miles on the clock and estimated at £20,000 to £25,000 this particular 911 offers a great opportunity to own an exciting car and take it to the next level.

Our final 911 from our sale selection is a beautifully restored 1984 Sport Cabriolet with a Porsche Certificate of authenticity. In 2016 the car underwent bodywork restoration including the inner and outer sills, undersealed a is finished off in Gold with a brown piped interior. Although the car is of a higher mileage, it has had top end engine rebuild only 20,000 miles ago. A lovely looking car with a large history file and estimated at £28,000 to £32,000.

Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions auction manager commented: “Again we have a superb selection of Porsches in our sale. These 911s we have highlighted offer a great opportunity into owning a Porsche. We work closely with the Porsche Club GB and often the members choose to sell their cars via us.”

“With other Porsche models in the sale from the 924, 928, 944 and Boxsters, there will be plenty of choice for fans of the marque.”
