Description

By 1977, Porsche realized that their clientele demanded more than just spartan sports cars and began to offer options that would deliver refinement and creature comforts alongside performance.

The growing options list let 911 owners greatly personalize their cars, as evidenced by the example offered here. According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this car was ordered with front and rear stabilizer bars, Blaupunkt Bamberg radio, five-speed gearbox, rear deck-lid emblem delete, leather steering wheel, tinted glass, center console, and California emissions package.

The Black Watch is the name of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, but it’s also the moniker given this outlaw-styled Porsche 911, which proudly wears the blue and green tartan pattern of the famed military organization. Ordered new from the factory with the striking plaid seat inserts and Ice Green Metallic paint, the Black Watch 911 is a daring take on a 1977 Targa.

This distinctive 911’s restoration is documented in a glossy coffee table book, which is included in the sale along with a matching set of tartan luggage. The car is kept in a climate-controlled collection and has very recently received an oil and filter service, transmission oil change, and brake fluid flush. This example offers a completely unique vision of the popular Targa-roofed 911 in a very tidy and attractive package.
