This 1972 Porsche 911S Targa was purchased by its builder in 2000 and subsequently treated to a custom bare metal restoration over the next several years. Finished in Cobalt Blue Metallic over black leather, this Targa received metal fender flares, RS-style bumpers, upgraded Carrera brakes, performance suspension, and an RS-spec 2.7L engine paired with a regeared 5-speed manual transmission. Restored to as-new standards with less than 3k miles on the chassis and under 1k miles on the drivetrain, this uncompromising 911S Targa is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Alabama.
This 911S was stripped to bare metal and fitted with steel 911SC fender flares along with RS-style bumpers and a ducktail rear spoiler. The body received sealing primer before being finished in the Porsche color of Cobalt Blue Metallic (L37U) by professional painter Darrell Watson. All nuts, bolts, and hardware were blasted and CAD plated while the battery boxes were removed for improved oil cooling (boxes included in sale). A new OEM windshield was fitted along with new chrome trim, Bosch headlights, turn signal lenses, and painted 16” Fuchs wheels measuring 7” wide in front and 8” wide in the rear.
Inside, the cabin has been fitted with new German carpeting, RS door panels, and a set of perforated black leather RS seats from GTS Classics mounted on Recaro sliders. Other additions include Lloyd’s “911S” carpet mats, a three-spoke Personal Fitti steering wheel, and an aftermarket stereo paired with 6”x9” speakers.
Power comes from a Type 911/53 motor sourced from another 1972 911S, which was overhauled and rebuilt to 2.7L specifications including new 9.5:1 JE coated skirt pistons, 2.7 cylinders, rebuilt MFI heads, Dougherty Racing Mod S cams, and PMO 40mm carburetors. This engine also features new SSI heat exchangers, a Dansk sport muffler, and Carrera 3.2 chain tensioners, hardware, oil pump, and fuel pump. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a rebuilt 5-speed 915 manual transmission with a factory short shifter and new bushings. It was completely rebuilt under prior ownership and modified with a shorter 911SC 5th gear ratio.
Stopping power is derived from rebuilt and CAD-plated Carrera brake calipers paired with new 24mm Zimmerman cross-drilled rotors, braided hoses, and a Tilton three-way rear bias adjuster. The front suspension includes an aluminum Carrera cross member, poly bushings, Turbo tie rods, Bilstein struts, a modified steering arm, and a 19mm Weltmeister sway bar with double adjustable end links. In the rear, the car features aluminum Carrera trailing arms, adjustable spring plates, Elephant Racing poly/brass bushings, Bilstein shocks, and another 19mm Weltmeister sway bar with double adjustable end links.
This sale will include the original battery boxes, original 5th gear, books, toolkit, records, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, roll bar, front bra, and an Alabama registration.
