Simultaneously reading the American regulatory tea leaves while reacting to consumer demand for an open-topped 911 variant, Porsche engineered a solution to capitalize on the advantages of both coupe and cabriolet bodies for their new 911 and 912 models. Looking to their race cars for inspiration as Porsche often does, Butzi Porsche hit upon a stroke of genius by combining a stainless steel trimmed roll bar, a removable top, and a foldable rear window. Offered briefly for only two model years (1967 and 1968) before transitioning to a glass wraparound rear window in 1969, the original Targa concept was a hit for the variety of four different open body configurations it offered.

Produced in August 1967 and sold through Autohaus Krauss in Nürnberg, Germany this early production Rest of World (RoW) specification 911 L was sold new to Seigfried Steiniger of nearby Schwandorf. Finished in Tangerine over a Black upholstered interior, it was one of a hand full of Targas specified with the foldable rear window that year before the updated glass rear window became the standard choice. By 1976 this 911 L soft-window Targa was in the United States and has since been under the ownership of a single family over the past 48 years. Most recently this matching numbers example has been treated to more than $40,000 in recent restoration work between 2019 and 2023, where the Targa received a fresh coat of paint in the as-delivered, striking Tangerine orange color, while the interior was refurbished and mechanical aspects such as the braking and suspension systems were rebuilt. Some evidence of corrosion is apparent on the undercarriage, with some rust repairs having been carried out in the past. This rare, matching-numbers "Soft-Window" 911 Targa is offered with a copy of the original factory build record (Kardex), in addition to restoration receipts.
