Description

One of only 442 911 S Targa's for 1968
Delivered new in France
COA confirming matching number and colors
Older Italian restoration
Rare Short Wheel Base S Targa

The fine 911 Targa offered here was completed in Novembre 1967 at the Zuffenhausen Porsche factory. The new sports car was attractively finished in Polo Red over a Black Leatherette interior and delivered new to France; sometime later it moved to dry and sunny Italy!

This is a European 911 S Targa and there were only 442 S Targa`s built that year. Since Porsche only imported the 911L to America, and no S this is the rarest of the 911S. The Porsche Italy COA confirms its matching number engine and color combination.

In the care of its previous private owner this beautiful 911S Targa underwent a well-documented rotisserie restoration by experts. The restoration was completed in Italy and is well documented by photos— detailing the particulars of the work executed. The current owner bought the car in 2013 and enjoyed it sparingly; adding only 1.500km on the odo since!

Needless to say, even though the older restoration, this Porsche is still in lovely condition throughout. The interior is nicely trimmed in the correct leatherette and basket weave dash stripping, the unique-to-1968 door cards are installed. Outside, the paint shows well and has a great gloss. Chrome work is still nice and shiny. Only a small remark can be made on the "next years" targa bar that is installed. All mechanics were restored to as new condition so this Targa is an amazing sports car no doubt.

From the last year of the short wheelbase 911s, these fun and exciting early 911s are among the purest examples of Porsche's most successful model. Offered with the Porsche Italy issued Certificate of Authenticity, matching spare wheel, jack and tool kit, this rare numbers-matching Targa is ready for open-air enjoyment on challenging roads and active participation in local and club shows.
