Description

If we think of a sports car, we automatticaly think of a 911. This huge successtory of Porsche is since the 60’s a measurement for the whole sports car industry which is today no different. Because of the strict legislation on roll-overs the american government premised in the 60’s, it was impossible for Porsche te export a topless version of their most succesful sports cart to the US. Therefore Porsche designed a Targa version that, thanks to it steel rollbar, garantueed the safety of a coupé and the driving pleasure of a convertible. The Targa became a such a great succes that, even after the American government dropped the legislation on roll-overs, Porsche kept on building Targa’s. The rollbar became a part of Porsches iconic 911 linecomposition which is still noticable today if we look at the 991 Targa’s.
