1968 Porsche 911T 2.0 Targa Coupe
Chassis no. 11870262
A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964 as a replacement for the 356. Introduced as a new base model in 1967, the 911T (Touring) came initially with the 2.0-litre six-cylinder engine, gaining the 2.2-litre unit, along with the rest of the range, in 1969. There was, of course, a convertible Targa version, named in honour of Porsche's numerous victories in that Sicilian classic, the Targa Florio. First seen in 1966, the Targa represented an ingenious approach to the concept of a soft-top 911. Its design resulting from expected US safety legislation, the Targa sported a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, plus removable roof and rear hood sections stowable in the boot. An enormous success for the Stuttgart firm, the much loved and instantly recognisable Targa finally bowed out at end of the 1990s when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range.

Restored circa 3-4 years ago, this 911 Targa has formed part of a private collection for the last three years and is described as in generally good condition. The car is finished in green with magnolia interior and is offered with Italian libretto.

Restaurée il y a trois ou quatre ans, cette 911 Targa, qui fait partie d'une collection privée depuis, est décrite comme étant en bon état général. De couleur vert avec intérieur magnolia, elle est offerte avec son libretto italien.
