I wouldn’t say it’s all that easy to tell from the pictures, but this appears to be a pretty nice looking and very interesting Porsche 912. Of particular interest is that it is one of the early Targas with the removable rear window, otherwise known as the Soft-window Targa. There aren’t a lot of these because Porsche only kept the design around for a few years before introducing the glass window with which we’re all quite familiar and which became the mainstay of the design until the 993. Of course, contrary to my claim of it being “interesting” the glass window replaced the soft window mostly because buyers preferred it. That does make them rare though and as a window into one of Porsche’s engineering ideas they do make for a nice piece of history.
This particular example is a Black 1967 Porsche 912 Soft-window Targa, located in New York, with Red interior and 70,400 miles on it. The owner claims this color combination is the only one of its kind on this model. I don’t know if that can be verified with certainty, but I feel pretty assured of its rarity regardless of whether it’s the only one.
