Footnotes

  • From 1969, the increasingly popular option of having a Targa-top 911 saw the zip-out and potentially leaky plastic rear window section employed for earlier models being replaced with a fixed wrap-around rear window in glass. Meanwhile with the advent of the 2.4-litre engine in 1971, power had increased to 190bhp and a 5-speed gearbox had become standard-issue. From the 1972 model year onwards, further revisions were incorporated, such as wider wheels and wheel-arches, whilst handling became more predictable and, from 1973, there were new bumpers.

    This 2.4 911T-Lux with 2+2 Targa bodywork first left the Stuttgart works in August 1973 - indeed, the 2341cc capacity engine in this car still has the desirable Carrera RS-spec 7R magnesium crankcase as fitted by the factory when new, since when the right-hand drive car has had 8 keepers, the vendor since 1994. The history file indicates that the clutch was renewed 1986 and the bodywork and the trim restored 1994/95, since when only 9000 miles have been driven. Various bills detail work carried out to suspension, brakes and exhaust, while additional renovation to the floor pan took place 2004 and there are maintenance receipts from AFN and Autofarm from 2001 to this year.

    Impressively, the 23 original MOTs on file date from July 1980 when the mileage was reported as being 71,807, while the most recent certificate from January 2007, valid therefore until 10 January 2008, records 17,601 miles displayed, which had only increased to 17,747 miles when the car was catalogued and equated therefore to a likely 117,747 total mileage from new. Even more extraordinary is the fully stamped Porsche maintenance record from a first service carried out 30 August 1973 at 1240 miles right the way through to the present.

    Smartly painted in Oxford Blue and with factory-option Recaro sports seats in black leather with inserts in black cord, this Targa-top sits on period-correct Fuch alloys. Upgrades carried out include the fitment of pressure-fed timing chain tensioners, SSI heat exchangers in stainless-steel, Momo Champion leather-covered steering wheel and Sharp radio-cassette with Blaupunkt speakers. The original drivers manual supplied with the car by the dealer is still present in the folder. To summarise, a well presented Targa from the mid-seventies, restored to a good standard twelve years ago and with impressive service history.
