One of the least common 996 models, the Targa includes a unique sliding glass roof system and was the first Porsche 911 to feature an opening rear hatch.

It has also been upgraded with an LN Engineering IMS bearing kit as well as an aftermarket cat-back exhaust, Pelican Super Clutch, and DCT Motor Sports steering wheel. Showing approximately 124k miles on the odometer, this Carrera Targa is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois.

The power Targa top system is currently inoperable seller states the Targa top control module will be replaced prior to the sale.

A naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine provides up to 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. An aftermarket cat-back exhaust system was installed by a previous owner and a service in August 2022 included an LN Engineering IMS bearing kit, new shift cables, and a Pelican Super Clutch kit. More recently in January 2023, a service included an oil change, rebuilt brake calipers, new rear brake pads, rotors and hoses, a new oil pressure spring, oil pistons, and brake master cylinder.
