THE PORSCHE 911

Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement.

In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless upgrades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph.

A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 liters. The S's power output then was 180bhp, increasing to 190bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-liter engine for 1972. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The sporting 911S Targa offered here stems from the final production-year for the desirable long-hood, small bumper 911. These cars are by many considered the last of the pure 911 design, and they benefit accordingly from all of the upgrades carried out over the nearly decade long model run.
Completed at the Zuffenhausen Porsche factory in September of 1972, this 911S Targa was finished, much as it appears today, with the exterior done in Ivory white, and optioned with the desirable sport seats and a Blaupunkt radio. The new Porsche was equipped for the US market, and delivered to its first owner through the Jacksonville, Florida based agent, presumably Brumos Porsche.

By the early 1980s the 911 had migrated to the West Coast, where a Mr. Peter Vander Peol, Jr of Chino, California, owned it. Mr. Peol sold the Porsche to Los Angeles, California resident Ken Hughes in April 1982. Receipts found in the cars extensive history file suggests that legendary Porsche shop, Vasek Polak, rebuilt the engine at this time. Mr. Hughes appears to have relocated to Houston, Texas by the mid-1980s, while the car remained in his ownership.

By the early 2000s, the 911S Targa was owned by a Mr. Rueben Bienvenu of Louisiana, who later sold the car to Clay Huber of Woodford, VA. While in Mr. Huber's ownership, much cosmetic and mechanical restoration work was performed by Fairfax, Virginia based Auto Sportsystems Group, Fallbrook, California based Supertec Performance, and Mark Allin's Rare Drive of East Kingston, New Hampshire.

Today, this matching numbers 911S Targa, from the final production year of the 'classic' 911, shows beautifully inside and out. Finished in the as-delivered Ivory White color, and fitted with sport seats in period-correct 'Madras' tartan in brown colors, this Targa has the right look. Complete with a large history file, this smart Porsche is ready for its next caretaker. With an enticing power band, excellent road holding, and the pure, unmistakably look of the classic 911 Targa, the 2.4-liter S cars are among the best ever to come out of Porsche's workshops.
