1967 Porsche 911 'Soft-Window' Targa

[ translate ]

Chassis No.

Chassis No.: 500370
Engine No.: 911684
Gearbox No.: 131266
Documents: Bulgarian Vehicle Registration

Named for the Targa Florio in Sicily, the Targa was the first open version of the 911. Conceived to circumvent an anticipated ban of full convertibles in the United States, the model featured a sturdy roll hoop, removable rigid roof panel, and a flexible rear window that could be unzipped. The flexible rear windscreen was rapidly superseded, with the now familiar wraparound glass window was optional from 1968, and standard from 1969.

Chassis 500370 left the factory on 24 April 1967, and is one of only 235 911 Targas built during the first period of production. While a copy of the Kardex shows that it was serviced in Germany in March 1968, the 911 later went to California. Repainted silver, in 2008 it moved to Ohio, from where it returned to Europe in 2019.

While in the current owner’s care the Porsche was treated to an all-encompassing bare-shell restoration including a rebuild of its engine, gearbox, undercarriage, front axle, Targa roof, and braking system. It was re-wired prior to being finished in its factory-correct Irish Green over Black leatherette. The Porsche retains its matching-numbers chassis, engine, and gearbox, and presents as an immaculate example of a rare and increasingly desirable model. Restored to the highest level, it is ready to be enjoyed at touring or concours events.
