I originally wanted a 1987 911 carrera targa because of the G-50 gearbox, but I found a 1985 911 with 135,000 miles in good shape for only $13,100.00 US. Is this a good price? Will I have problems with it with such high miles? Should I go ahead and wait for the '87 when I get the money? Is the G-50 gearbox in teh '87 THAT much better?

If you can, hold out for the G-50 tranny, it's got a hydralic clutch, and shifts MUCH smoother. The 915 Tranny was used from 1972? or 1971, until 1986 in all non-turbo 911's. Once you shift a G-50, you'll never go back.
