Test drive with a "fog machine" / engine revision? (3.2 Targa; year of construction 1986)

  • PS. I drove my old 911 almost 1200km in one piece across Bavaria and back home again.

    Country road goes with the Targa.

    An equally long Autobahntour -- there is a Targa, closed not only "a little louder"..... -- unless 90km/h roll behind the truck....

    A buddy of mine sold his (Targa) just for that reason.............. The noise was getting on his nerves.... .

    But to the Targa volume -- we will not be able to reach agreement -- here every Targa driver understands this as an attack and goes into the ...... mode.

    With the high mileage (I actually want a vehicle with < 200,000 kilometers) I had a major engine overhaul "on the docket" anyway and priced it into my bid,

    I would be most interested in the statement how that is meant.

    If I understand that correctly, then your "bid" has just been the mentioned 20k less as the "purchase price" -- do I understand that correctly?

    Hello,

    I can only agree with Lars.

    I drove 3 new Targas from 1970 - 1978 in summer and winter service.

    All were leaky and noisy.

    That one endures between 27 and 35, then was switched to the Coupe also after veto of Andrea.

  • My buddy's Andrea went along once -- after this "tour", my buddy was "allowed" to drive 100 comma zero % of all further KM with the car alone.

    She never got in the car again.

    Hello,

    I know that too.

    My Andrea even drove herself until 1985, then she stopped with the remark "You can drive the truck yourself from now on".

    But she still drives today.

    That will be because of the Andrea, My Andrea is - despite Targa - 30 years along or also driven itself. This is a car forum here. For complaints about his (respective) Andrea there are other forums. ^^

    Alternative, if there is no other way: change Andrea, keep Targa. ;)

    I kept both for a long time, Targa about 30 years, Andrea still.

  • Again on the engine overhaul. I would say in the meantime:

    Love to buy an engine that needs to be overhauled, than a seemingly better but then also comes at some point.

    Then it's gone at once and you first fun. Should be reflected in the price of course.

    Then it is suddenly gone and you first fun.

    Any "engine action" is NOT a license to rest and be happy.

    "Rest" -- better save that word for underground.

  • We are talking about a technical product that is many decades old. You can't rule out problems with it, even major ones.

    If you can't stand it, you should buy a new car with a warranty.

    Even a reconditioned engine can break down catastrophically.

    After the warranty is but even with new cars nowadays already over!

    Then rather our old agricultural machines, which reach mileages of which new car owners only dream!

  • Moin, the 11er consists not only of the engine!

    Alone the Odyssey chassis, front and rear axle, so that the 11er is clean at 230-240 will devour several thousand euros.

    Then still the electrics.......zum Schluss the optics inside, outside then are quickly 80k together!
