THE PORSCHE 911

A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, 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 bodyshell 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 three liters and, in turbo-charged form, would put out well over 300 horsepower.

Two years after the original coupé's introduction, the convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honor of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic - arrived in 1966. 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 recognizable Targa finally bowed out at the end of the 1990s, when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range for 1999.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This home market SC Targa was completed at Porsche in 1980, and is believed to have spent most of its life in Germany and Austria. According to the Certificate of Authenticity issued, the car was finished from new as it appears today, in Grand Prix White over the rare red/blue Tartan Dress interior, and equipped with a Blaupunkt radio and rear windshield wiper. Showing less than 68,000 kilometers on the odometer – a figure that is indeed believed to be the original mileage – the SC Targa presents in lovely condition throughout, and gives you the feel of a car that has been well cared for since new. The car was recently serviced by a specialist. A very usable "youngtimer", this fine 911 is ready for open top touring.
