Sunglasses, wind in the hair and a classic with the flat six that belonged to a Hollywood star. Bring a Trailer offers collectors a really interesting piece, one Porsche 911 Carrera Targa of 1986 that belonged to Tom Cruise. The model from the Zuffenhausen house was bought new by the actor himself, in the same year in which he arrived at the Top Gun cinema, the film that definitively consecrated Tom Cruise. The well-known face only owned this car for a year, and then sold it to the owner who used it in New Jersey, Georgia and Illinois before selling it in 2012 to the current owner.
On the outside you can see the classic black livery, which makes this Porsche 911 particularly elegant and sporty at the same time, a livery that was restored in 2020 and now makes it look like new. The windshield, the rear window seal and the Targa bar seal were also replaced in the same service. Equipped with 16-inch Fuchs wheels with black centers and Continental Extreme Contact tires. These tires were also recently changed, with the brake calipers being replaced in 2016. The interior of the cabin reveals black leather upholstery with a matching dashboard, carpets and door panels. There are also electrically adjustable front sports seats, cruise control, power windows and a Blaupunkt Monterey cassette stereo with Bluetooth functionality. The interior also benefited from a makeover in 2020, but the listing notes that the air conditioning is not working.
To push this Porsche 911 Targa Carrera is a 3.2-liter Flat Six paired with rear-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission. The total mileage of the car remains unknown as the odometer has been replaced at 8,800 miles (14,162 km) but the maintenance work carried out over the years, which also involved the engine and mechanics, should deliver a little gem into the hands of the future owner.
