Complete with a valid MoT (good until 9 September, 2012), a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and an original sales brochure, it is one of the ultimate early 911s and a true driver’s car.

The 1967 Porsche 911S Soft Window Targa presented here, with chassis number 500190, is a truly rare and highly collectible automobile. It has recently completed a fully documented, comprehensive restoration by Southern California marque specialists Classic Showcase.

The correct and original style upholstery has been fitted to the optional sport seats, and the wood steering wheel was restored to exude the same level of craftsmanship as the sleek, pristine exterior. The engine and transmission were restored including a new exhaust system. The gas tank was epoxy sealed and restored. All mechanical components were replaced or restored. The electrical components were gone through, the Bosch driving lights were restored, and a new wire loom was installed.
