Footnotes

  • 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 the Sicilian classic. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections, which were stowable in the boot. For 1969 a quieter and less leak-prone fixed rear window replaced the less than perfect rear hood, and the ever-popular Targa would continue in this form well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way. The much loved and instantly recognisable Targa finally bowed out at the decade’s end, when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range for 1999.
    Finished in yellow with black interior, this very tidily presented left-hand drive 911T Targa was delivered new to the USA. As is so often the case with vehicles offered from the estate of a deceased, there is little accompanying history; accordingly, the car is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
