  • When Porsche rolled out its 1968 model line, it faced a daunting problem: new U.S. safety and emission standards. The “S” engine from 1967 was a high-performance motor in all respects. With high-compression forged alloy pistons, forged and nitrided connecting rods, large valves, and big Weber triple-throat carburetors, it produced a healthy 160 horsepower. Porsche soon realized that this motor would probably not comply with the new U.S. emissions standards without additional development. Careful tuning would eventually resolve that problem, but Porsche did not have time to establish those procedures in time to allow delivery of the new 911 S to its most important market and could not risk shipping new cars that it could not legally sell.

    Management decided to restrict the 1968 “S,” identical to the 1967 version, to Europe and instead offer American customers the one-year-only 911 L, with an air pump-equipped engine producing a lesser 130 brake horsepower. Over time, a small number of European-spec 1968 S Coupes and Targas have been imported to the U.S., where they enjoy special recognition.

    The 1968 Porsche 911S Targa offered here is finished in gorgeous Light Ivory with a beautiful black interior featuring pepit cloth inserts. This incredible 911S has spent most of its life in Southern California after being delivered in Germany originally. One of only 442 built, this rare and desirable Euro Spec version 911S still retains its matching numbers engine and transmission. It is finished in its factory correct color combination and is accompanied with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual, dealer books, restoration receipts, tools and more. We’re proud to offer this magnificent 1968 Porsche 911S Targa to the most demanding collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates investment potential of this great classic. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
