1986 Porsche 911 Targa 3.2 from North America
This car is overall a great buy
Nothing has gone wrong with the car. The car has been well maintained, and it's really not expensive to maintain these older Porsches if you start off with a good one. Do your research and have it checked professionally by someone who knows the cars.
The car has more than enough power and looks great. It's not for the guy wanting to cruise in the lap of luxury. It's a true driver's car. One thing about most older Porsches is that the AC blows semi-cold air. This can be corrected by converting to R-134A and about $200 in upgrades to the system. These cars are not like most exotics. They have a relatively simple design and are engineered for reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You had mentioned that the air conditioning can be modified to blow colder with approx $200 in upgrades? Can you tell me what those upgrades are? I have had my system refilled and it does not get very cold.

Start by taking your car to an A/C shop, and get the refrigerant recharged. In the old cars, it leaks out over time. I ended up updating to a much improved Sanden condenser from Pelican Parts. Then I replaced all of the A/C lines because I had a hole in a line, and wanted to update to barrier hoses. Overall cost was $600, but I have cold A/C now.
