Accounting for approximately 8% of all Porsche 912s produced in total, the Targa version arrived in the U.S. market in late 1967 and was favored for its open-air driving experience coupled with a lightweight and easily maintained pushrod engine. This 1968 example was acquired by the seller from its second owner through the Porsche Club of America about two years ago and is accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity showing a matching engine serial number. It features several upgrades including a Wevo shifter, Rennline LED headlights, carbon/Kevlar brake pads, lowered suspension, Fuchs wheels, and a 1,750cc engine displacement kit. This early air-cooled Targa is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Connecticut.

This Targa was factory equipped with a heated glass rear window, a new option for the 1968 model year. It was originally painted Burgundy Red and was refinished in the current shade of red under prior ownership. Equipment includes aftermarket Rennline LED headlights, European-style taillight lenses, factory-optioned chrome bumper horns, and 15” Fuchs wheels. The seller notes the suspension has been lowered to European ride height and new Pirelli CN36 tires were installed about a year ago. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.

The black interior includes a factory-optioned leather steering wheel and has been fitted with a set of Coco floor mats as well as an upgraded Wevo shifter. The seller describes the cabin to be in very good condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional, although a crack is present on the dashboard which has been partially repaired.

The car’s original air-cooled flat-four engine is said to have been upgraded to a 1,750cc displacement under prior ownership and sends power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed Type 902/02 manual transmission. The seller notes that the car was serviced by the specialists at Speedsport Tuning over the course of several months during their ownership and the brakes have been refurbished with new rotors and upgraded Porterfield carbon/Kevlar pads.

This sale will include extensive documentation, a toolkit, a spare tire, a car cover, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

  • KB500 (registered bidder) 10 months, 2 weeksago

    Could you provide some context in detail for both the four large thru-bolts and washers at the rear of the pan, and also the patchwork of the pan near the pedal cluster? There seems to be some sprawling repairs and modifications in those two areas.
