PORSCHE 911 S Softwindow Targa blood orange
No other Porsche 911 polarizes as much as the early Targa models.
Initially rejected by the trade press and Porsche enthusiasts, the Targa has developed into a real bestseller and has enriched the Porsche model range almost continuously to this day.
Introduced on the market in 1967, vehicles with a foldable rear window were produced for the first two years.
These models are called “SOFTWINDOW TARGA”. They belong to the very rare Porsche vehicle variants.
From model year 1969 onwards, all Porsche 911 Targa have the fixed rear glass roof.
The mechanical injection pump manufactured by Bosch was also used for the first time in the 1969 model year. These 2.0 engines produce an unbelievable 170 hp.
A few customers still ordered the “softwindow” version of the Targa model, which was actually deleted from the model range.
You have to be a real Targa enthusiast, because at the high speeds that an early 911 S could reach, the extreme wind noise transforms the journey into a “ride in a hurricane”.
When the sun is shining, however, there is nothing more beautiful!
Only 13 vehicles are produced in this variant on customer request.
The 911 S 2.0 softwindow is one of the rarest 911s ever built.
The vehicle on offer was originally delivered to Austria.
The original Austrian individual approval notification is available.
The vehicle was extensively restored 5 years ago and painted in the original color polo red (6802).
The entire drive technology, engine, gearbox and axles have been completely overhauled.
The interior has also been renewed, with meticulous attention to the reuse of the original parts.
The Targa roof as well as the softwindow top are in mint condition.
The vehicle has been in our collection since the restoration.
We have decided to hand this extremely rare Porsche over to good hands who appreciate this unique investment.
