We are pleased to offer this 1973 Porsche 911S Targa finished in Silver Metallic over a black interior. Reported by the seller to be the 326th car built out of only 914 “911S” Targas for the model year, this 1973 example was originally delivered by Autohaus Porsche-Audi in Charlotte, North Carolina. It has since been kept in excellent overall condition with a full respray, some refurbishment of the interior, and a custom full rebuild of the original engine to upgraded 2.7 RS specifications. With approximately 20k miles shown on the odometer and just over 6k miles driven with the rebuilt motor, this beautifully sorted long hood 911S Targa is now being offered by its seller in California.
This Targa is reported to have been professionally refinished in its factory original color of Silver Metallic (936) approximately 20 years ago under previous ownership. The exterior is said to be in outstanding condition with excellent panel fitment, and the seller confirms the original floor pans to be completely intact. As a U.S-spec 1973 example, this 911 can be distinguished by its black front horn grilles and indicator surrounds as well as its rubber front bumper guards. A front valence spoiler is also equipped for high-speed stability, a factory feature unique to the S-model. This Targa rides on factory flat 6” Fuchs alloy wheels that come dressed in BF Goodrich G-Force Sport tires.
The black interior is said to be in excellent, partially restored condition. The front seats have been reupholstered in leather, and new German carpeting has been installed throughout the cabin. The dashboard is said to be in great shape along with the original door pockets. This S-model also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A later-model Blaupunkt radio has been installed and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This 911S carries its original number matching 2.4 flat-six fuel-injected engine that was completely rebuilt by Automobile Associates of Canton Inc. in Connecticut just over 6k miles ago. During this time, the engine was reassembled to 2.7 RS specifications with the following items:
The rear wheels are driven through a smooth-shifting 915 5-speed manual gearbox and this 911S also features 4-wheel disc brakes and an original front suspension. Records are said to be included from the previous owner dating back to 2007 and this Targa is noted to be in excellent running order.
This sale will include a clean title. If you’re in search of a nicely presented long-hood 911 Targa, this stunning 1973 911S makes an excellent choice.
