This 911 was purchased by a member of my family in Southern California May 15, 1998. Around 2010 they moved to the Jacksonville, Florida area.
The car has always been garaged.
In 2013 the fuel pump failed and the car sat for several years until it was transferred to me in May of 2018.

The original Fuchs wheels have rust under the surface of the Chrome. This is causing the Chrome to flake off.
The Central Locking System is malfunctioning. When the doors are locked, the locking system immediately unlocks them. I rarely drive with the targa top on so locking the doors hasn't concerned me. I have not looked into having the problem resolved.
Very slight door ding on passenger door.
Minor paint scratches.
Front valence dings (from hitting parking blocks).
Interior Light doesn't work.
Passenger window switch on driver door blows the fuse. Passenger window switch on passenger door works fine. Driver window switch on driver door works fine.
Low mileage for a 1989 car. This 1989 model was the last year before the 964 model generation. It has the excellent and desirable G50 manual transmission. The engine is smooth and so is the transmission. The clutch and brakes work well. The heat and AC both work well. Never smoked in.
Until its recent transfer to Pennsylvania, the car has always been in a warm climate without snow or salt. I expect this car to sell quickly but in case I have it in Pennsylvania over the Winter it will not be driven in the rain or after the first snow. It will be garage kept until the Spring.
The Targa top was completely restored by Cars, Inc. of Trenton, New Jersey. They also restore the Targa tops for Singer and do amazing work. The top received their most complete "Stage 4" restoration.
