1967 Porsche 911S Soft-window Targa

Last week we featured a 912 Soft-window Targa that sat on the value-end of the scale for these peculiar models, even if that particular example was priced a bit high. Now we are going to move almost entirely to the other end of the spectrum. The Soft-window Targa was not only made for the 912, but also was available on the 911, including the top-of-the-range and highly sought after 911S. In this case we’re just stacking rarity on rarity with a rare color of a rare variant of a rare model. It should come as no surprise then that this car is priced at nearly $200K, 5 times the high price for last week’s 912. But this post isn’t about finding an interesting value, but rather about coming across one of the most interesting 911s made in the late ’60s. Here we have a Gulf Blue 1967 Porsche 911S Soft-window Targa that comes in at just under 125K miles and also sports an interesting classic rally pedigree.

While initially we might think this car is priced too high, it actually comes in priced as a condition 2 example by Hagerty, which seems about right. Add in the great Gulf Blue paint and we’ve got something special. Given some peculiarities on this auction, i.e. the location is ambiguous and the seller’s English isn’t great, this strikes me more as an advertisement for the sale rather than an auction I expect to result in a sale. But still, it’s always nice to see a 911S in any guise, but especially one that apparently still spends its time running around South American roads engaged in some classic rallying.
