Porsche 911

Targa, 1967


  • Porsche 911 Targa SWB
  • fully restored
  • Cavity sealed German first registration

Propagated as a "safety convertible", the concept with a fixed Targa bar, fold-down rear window and removable folding roof was Zuffenhausen's answer to the increased safety requirements for convertibles in the USA. Even back then, the Swabian sports car manufacturer proved perfectly that safety – especially in the event of a rollover – and fun in the fresh air do not have to be mutually exclusive. And because the 911 remained a sports car even as a Targa, the naming was based on the legendary “Targa Florio” road race in Sicily, where Porsche celebrated great sporting successes at the time. From model year 1969, the "soft window" that could be opened was replaced by a fixed rear window made of safety glass.

The vehicle in detail

General information about the vehicle:
This Porsche released for auction here is a Porsche 911 SWB (Short Wheel Base) Softwindow Targa. According to the seller, the vehicle was first registered to the Porsche general agency in Salzburg-Porschehof in 04/1967 and was sold to the first owner in 09/1967. He sold the vehicle to the Porsche Automuseum Pfeifhofer in Gmünd in 1980. From there the car went from Austria to Germany in 1986 to its second owner. According to the seller, the Porsche went to the third owner in 1997, where a full restoration was carried out until 1999. The body of the vehicle was extensively restored on the bench, including the floor, tank floor, new side parts and rocker panels etc.. In 2009 the fourth owner followed drove the car until 2021 and then sold it to the current owner.

The vehicle has been known to the current owner since 2009. The vehicle comes with 87 invoices, 31 photos of the body work and TÜV reports from 1999 to 2020. This 911 already has the so-called H-approval and the most recently completed TÜV is valid until May 2024. The vehicle is handed over to the new owner with a fresh HU/AZ. It is also worth mentioning that the matching numbers are given for this 911 SWB Softwindow Targa from 1967 after consultation with the seller.
Exterior colour/paint/body:
The dark green paintwork of this sports car from Zuffenhausen is extremely pleasing to the eye: according to the current owner, there are a few slight signs of wear and tear on the exterior – but these do not in any way affect the generally well-preserved external condition of the Porsche. In the course of the restoration work, the paintwork was replaced. In addition to the various chrome trim elements – which still shine extraordinarily well – all other add-on parts that can be found on the body are obviously completely preserved. The seller confirms that there has been no accident. There are no traces of damage to be found on the Targa roof or the soft window.
Exterior rims/brakes/chassis:
Pneus in the size of 165 SR 15 are mounted on silver five-spoke Porsche rims. The seller assesses the condition of the tires as well as the condition of the brakes: According to his assessment, this should be around 70-90%. The current owner is not aware of any inconsistencies in the chassis area.
Black partial leather seats with well-formed side bolsters, together with the 4-spoke wooden steering wheel and the black/silver accents in the interior, ensure a successful overall appearance. A certain 1960s charm comes through in this interior. The equipment on board this Porsche 911 SWB Softwindow Targa includes a fire extinguisher in the passenger footwell and a contemporary radio. The soft window is easy to operate and the Targa roof can also be easily removed from the lock and reinserted. Gross signs of wear or even missing parts can apparently not be complained about in the interior.
Green numbers can be found in the round instruments of this Porsche 911 from 1967 – on the speedometer, which has five digits, a mileage of 75,515 kilometers can be read. An exact proof of the total mileage is no longer available. All instruments, displays and controls in the interior work perfectly.
Engine: The air-cooled 2.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, which is installed in the rear of the Porsche, delivers
131 hp. The individual gears are engaged via a 5-speed manual transmission and the power of the 6 cylinders is transferred to the rear axle. The last service work took place in May 2023.
No inconsistencies can be found on the underside of the Porsche that could cloud the very good overall appearance of this Zuffenhausen sports car – the seller speaks of a rust-free, preserved and cavity-sealed underbody. After the completion of the restoration work, this Porsche 911 SWB Softwindow Targa was only driven occasionally. This early Porsche 911 represents a piece of contemporary history, which represents its own history at Porsche with the soft window.
