67k-Mile 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Kiln Red Metallic
This 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa’s factory color is the very rare and attractive Kiln Red Metallic. Kiln Red Metallic was only offered during the 1984 production year of the 3.2 Carrera. Interior is original Champagne Leather with rare optional full leather sport seats. Other factory options include steering wheel with elevated hub, Blaupunkt Monterey radio, 16 inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels, automatic heater control, cruise control and front and rear spoilers. One doctor owned for 28 years with odometer showing approximately 67k miles. Carfax shows no accidents. Taken out of storage three years ago with major service completed and documented (including fuel tank cleaned, new fuel injectors, new temp sensor, new ignition wires, new spark plugs, flushed brake system, new brake calipers and rotors and more). Original owners manual and toolkit are present and included.
Sold to it’s first owner in North Carolina, this 1984 Carrera Targa resided the longest with it’s third owner (a doctor in Maryland), who purchased it in August of 1988. After passing away due to illness in late 2015, his family put the car into storage and eventually sold the car to it’s fourth owner in 2016. The service history file contains records from 1988 to 2019.
This Carrera is still wearing it’s original and very rare Kiln Red Metallic color (L811). While the majority of the paint measures as original, a $1500 paint repair was recently completed due to a scratch on the driver door and overall the paint now looks very good. The original body metal shows no rust and is very straight with only a couple of minor dings. Body panel gaps are very good and all body seals are present.
The Champagne leather interior is all original with it’s rare factory ordered leather sports seats still installed. The original leather dash shows some slight warping, but has no cracks. Rear speaker panel is very nice with no faded spots or rips.
This Carrera runs great with just 67,226 miles showing on the odometer and the mileage is well documented in it’s service history file. The original 3.2 liter engine was rated at 200HP when new and runs strong with no evidence of oil leaks. According to the son of the third owner, the engine was fully rebuilt prior to his father’s passing. The original 915 transmission shifts well with new shift bushings recently installed. A documented service in 2018, included the following:
*new fuel injectors
*cylinder head temp sensor
*fan belt and wiper blades
*ignition wires and spark plugs
*fuel tank cleaned
*hood and decklid struts
The throttle switch positioning was adjusted in February of 2019.
Clean title, original owner’s manual and documented service history file spanning 1988 through 2019 are included. The CarFax report shows no accidents, but indicates a mileage discrepancy due to the third owner’s wife incorrectly recording the odometer mileage as 1 mile, while transferring title into her name in 2015. Fortunately, the service history file accurately documents the mileage history. The options code sticker decodes as follows:
