The Porsche 911 is the best known sports car by Porsche. The look of the car was designed by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche, the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche (founder of the brand Porsche). The well-known shape has barely changed in the past 50 years.

Porsche introduced an open top version of the 911 in 1967.

Named after the company's successive victories in the famous Sicilian road race, the Targa featured a stainless steel roll bar, a removable roof panel and a fold-away plastic rear window for an outdoor experience. Soon thereafter, many buyers opted for the conventional rear window made of glass. Which is why the soft glass version is one of the rarest models of that period.

This Porsche is one of only 268 made for the United States in 1968.

This Porsche 911 L was completely (frame-off) restored some time ago, the car was technically addressed at the time of the restoration and the interior was also renewed, the car was resprayed in the original colour (code 80342-L Coffee Brown). The Porsche idles neatly, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all of the gears. In addition, the car had a technical maintenance service in March 2020.

It is rare that a Porsche 911 L Soft Window Targa is offered, especially in this restored condition, so do not miss your chance to become the owner of this beautiful classic.
