Description

Throughout the Porsche 912's initial 4-year production run, there were just over 32,860 examples produced. Of those, just 2,562 cars were Targa models. The Targas sold at a higher price than the coupes, but the real value came down to the rear window. This is a 1968 Porsche 912 Targa Soft-Window. The hard window option was first offered on the Targa in 1968, but some saw the value in the fabric rear window. By 1969, Porsche had decided the hard window would be the standard on all cars. This example in our shop left the factory with a soft window.

This rarity, coupled with the 1968 production date made this car possibly one of the last examples of the soft window Targa produced. In the following years, many soft-window Porsche Targas would be converted to hard windows, leaving the actual production numbers lost to time. This example came to us for a complete restoration. After media blasting, we did bodywork, then primer, then paint. The interior is getting close to completion. And then we will progress to final assembly.
