  • The Porsche “soft-window” Targa configuration was a true example of innovation for the German manufacturer. First revealed on a Porsche 911 in 1966, the Targa was designed to bring the open-air experience to the world-beating sportscar without compromising structural rigidity. Furthermore, at the time, it was feared that impending American safety regulations would effectively ban the traditional cabriolet. The solution was the Targa—a compromise that would soon become an enduring addition to the Porsche model range. The first Targas paired their signature removable roof panel with a foldaway plastic rear “soft” window.

    The stunning Porsche Soft-Windows targa featured here is finished in factory original color combination of tangerine over black with matching Targa soft-window top. This example, chassis number 12870719, was sold new by Porsche Pacific in Culver City, California on May 17, 1968 to a gentleman in Encino, California. On 31 July 1972 it changed hands, going to its second owner in San Diego. According to historical files, this second owner of the car retained it from 1972 until 2012 and then sold to its third and last owner. While in possession of the third owner a comprehensive restoration was performed including complete rebuild of both the engine and transmission. Accompanying this investment grade soft-window Targa are its original manuals, history file, service records and Porsche certificate of authenticity. Incredible opportunity to acquire what we believe to be one of the very best 912 Soft-Windows Targa's on the market today! For the most demanding collector investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this great German classic.

    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 and 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
