The new Porsche 991 Targa is fitted with it once again, of course we are speaking of the legendary stainless steel brushed Targa hoop. The stylish Targas from the 60s and 70s were the inspiration to bring back the original, mainly to market the Targa stronger than the predecessors that carry the Targa name and gain more commercial success. Now you see, a 70s 911 is mechanical light years away from a modern 991, but park them front to rear on the boulevard and observe from the terrace which one gets more onlookers. Want to place a bet? The undeniable charm of the original 911 Targa has such a distinguishable and characteristic profile she grew out to become a style icon. Practical as well; driving open without the turbulent wind you can expect in a true convertible, and safe, would you ever... All in all, a classic 911 with that little more zing than the hardtop. This above average fully restored exemplar will entice the all observing enthusiast in several ways. Namely, hardly ever one sees a 45-year-old Porsche in this condition.

For whom wants to invest worry free ánd drive a 911 Targa in tip top condition this exemplar is waiting for you. The colour, engine and gearbox are all original.
In 1970 an extensive option list did not yet exist. This 911T Targa is fitted with stunning tinted glass, head rests, a period Blaupunkt radio and original Fuchs wheels. On top of that, also fitted with the so called S-package, to be recognized from the chrome sill plates. other points of recognition are the oil pressure and oil temperature gauges on the dashboard and a leather upholstered steering wheel.
Prerequisite of a healthy investment in a classic Porsche is a rust free body and floor. The full restoration of this Targa was carried out on a healthy and straight body to begin with, which now makes her one hundred percent rust free and solid. Straight and perfectly fitting bodywork with correct fittings. Perfect paint job, absolutely exquisite paint quality. All rubbers have been replaced. Brightwork has been renewed throughout. The car is fitted with undamaged tinted glass with a green layer on the front wind shield. The Targa roof is equipped with new rubbers making it fit perfectly snug to the body.

Produced in 1971 for model year 1972 wherein only 1253 exemplars were built. This original European delivered car arrived in the Netherlands in early 1980s. The last two years a Porsche specialist worked on this car as a hobby project on end, to finally present a "new" appearing and driving 911 T Targa. The result is a feast for your eyes and clearly of the highest level. No costs were cut. A project a private buyer would have to invest plenty more to bring to a good end. The restorer of this car prefers to build, selling the car personally would be too emotional for him. This is where I step in. Better than this I can hardly ever offer such quality.
