The bodywork was painted in Porsche 6828 GoldGrün (Golden Green) – an optional colour from the 1960s – and further finished like a 1972-73 Targa. The car was mounted on wide 15-inch Fuchs rims with new Bridgestone tyres; thanks to those wide “turbo” wheels, we achieve a subtly sportier look.
Opening the doors, we see classic grey – the so-called “salt&pepper” – carpets with a black Leatherette interior. Up front, you will find a pair of beautiful Recaro seats finished in the same black leatherette with pepita inserts. The door panels and dashboard inlays with basketweave are period correct to the ’72-’73 look; finished with a black Nardi steering wheel. The gauges were completely rebuilt and, with their green numerals and chromé rim, replicate the style of the first 911s and the current 911 Sport Classic. To complete the luxurious look and feel, a thick wool carpet was chosen for the boot.
The engine is a classic 911 3.0 engine delivering 204 hp, this paired with a 915 gearbox with shorter shift for an optimal driving experience. To continue the subtle modifications, a classic exhaust system with stainless steel heat exchangers (adding 10 extra horses) and a central GT3-look exhaust were chosen. This combination gives you all the thrills, stunning sound and acceleration you need!
It drives exactly as you hope & expect. The engine delivers solid performance, the suspension feels great and the brakes give you confidence when you take the car for a spirited drive.
This backdate Targa was recently built and obviously looks like new. Classic looks, a unique finish, a Targa roof and the handling and performance of an 80’s 911. What more could you want?
Restomods, backdates, hot rods, … or whatever you want to call them. They offer classic looks with (more) modern mechanics, a better driving experience and extra comfort.
With a Porsche, you can take the rock-solid 911 3.0SC as a donor car and then choose the route you want to take. Just as was done with this beautiful Targa….
