911 Targa


The model name "Targa" derived from the Targa Florio road race, an endurance event held in Sicily, Italy. The Targa Florio was one of the oldest and most prestigious road races in the world, known for its challenging course that wound through the Sicilian mountains and countryside. It was an important event in motorsport history, and Porsche achieved numerous victories in the Targa Florio, cementing its reputation as a formidable competitor in endurance racing.

The first Porsche 911 Targa was introduced in 1966 and marked a significant innovation in automotive design. Here's an overview of the first Porsche 911 Targa:

Introduction: The Porsche 911 Targa was introduced as a response to safety concerns regarding open-top vehicles, particularly in the United States. At the time, proposed safety regulations were threatening to ban fully convertible cars due to fears of injuries from rollovers. Porsche developed the Targa model to offer an open-air driving experience while maintaining structural integrity and safety.

Innovative Design: The term "Targa" was inspired by the Targa Florio road race in Sicily, Italy, where Porsche had achieved notable successes. The Targa's design featured a distinctive stainless steel roll hoop behind the front seats, which provided additional rigidity to the chassis. The Targa top itself was a removable roof panel, allowing for open-top driving when desired.

Features: The Porsche 911 Targa retained many of the styling cues and performance characteristics of the standard 911 model. It featured a sleek and aerodynamic body design with a rear-mounted, air-cooled flat-six engine, delivering spirited performance and engaging driving dynamics.

Safety: The roll hoop of the Targa provided occupants with added protection in the event of a rollover or collision. Additionally, the removable roof panel could be stowed in the front trunk (or "frunk") when not in use, allowing for a fully open driving experience without compromising safety.

Continued Evolution: Over the years, the Porsche 911 Targa underwent various updates and revisions to its design and engineering. Subsequent generations of the Targa continued to refine the concept, incorporating advancements in technology, performance, and comfort while retaining the distinctive Targa top design.

Cultural Impact: The Porsche 911 Targa quickly became an iconic model within the Porsche line-up, renowned for its innovative design and unique driving experience. It remains a beloved choice among Porsche enthusiasts and collectors, appreciated for its historical significance and timeless appeal.

Overall, the first Porsche 911 Targa represented a ground-breaking solution to safety concerns surrounding open-top vehicles while offering drivers the thrill of open-air motoring. Its innovative design and enduring legacy have solidified its place in automotive history.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
