Another 2.7 liter Carrera Targa. For a model I don’t see very often they do seem to be coming up with more frequency these days. I featured one last week in one of my favorite color combinations, and while this one doesn’t quite possess that same immediate allure…man is it really grabbing my attention!
Why might that be? Somewhat surprisingly, the whale tail is really catching my eye. I always have preferred the whale tail to the duck tail – I think that’s just a product of growing up in the ’80s when the whale tail was more the norm – but generally speaking I don’t typically like the whale tail on a Targa. The lines do not seem to work. Here, though, everything comes together well and I love the look. I also really like the gold accents of the Carrera script and painted Fuchs. That’s surely a much more subjective feature, but those accents combined with the tail are what is putting this one over the top.
