Double Take: Albert Blue 1970 Porsche 911T – Coupe or Targa?

Update 12/24/2017 – The price of the Targa has dropped $10,000 to $89,995.

Believe it or not it’s been a few months since I featured a long-hood 911. I guess there haven’t been many lately to really grab my attention. So why not double up with two? Albert Blue is a really nice non-metallic blue that was available on these early 911s and as it happens there are two available right now, both from the same model year and same 911 model. But one is a Coupe and the other a Targa. So if you like the color, now you just have to pick your body style!

Let’s start with the Coupe: a 1970 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in Alabama, with 69,814 miles on it. It’s been fully restored, is numbers matching, and looks great.

This is a tale of two different picture sets. The pictures taken inside in the showroom really don’t show the beauty of Albert Blue very well. It’s nice, but looks a little sad stuck inside surrounded by darkness. Get the car out into the sun and things change quite a bit and that brilliant blue paint is given an opportunity to properly shine. It looks lovely and on this Coupe in pretty nice shape. The interior is new and looks good as well, especially the seats, though the passenger door either suffers from a few scuffs or there’s something on the camera lens. A closer look should clear that up, but in general I like this 911T. The BIN price of $77,900 isn’t too bad either, though certainly on the high-end for a restored T.

What if you love the color but want a more open feel for your driving? Fortunately, we’ve got you covered: here’s a 1970 Porsche 911T Targa, located in California, with 93,240 miles on it. Like the Coupe it’s been restored with new paint and interior and is numbers matching.

Of the two, this Targa shows its colors quite a bit better. It strikes me as the one in better condition as well, though that’s probably splitting hairs a little bit as each looks good. As is typical of this seller we are provided with high quality pictures of just about everything we could ask for, including what appear to be some of its original sales documents. From what we can see it looks like this 911 hasn’t even seen the road since its restoration was completed. Or, at least, it hadn’t seen the road when the pictures were taken. There’s no dirt to be found and the Albert Blue paint has great pop to it.

They’ve attached a high price to it though and if I thought $77,900 was on the high-end, then $99,995 is certainly high. I usually expect original paint for a 911T to be priced this close to $100K, but I’ll admit this one does look really good. We’ll have to see if buyers agree.

Two nice looking early 911s, one with a fixed roof and the other with the wind in your hair. I’m a Targa fan and the Targa looks the better of these two 911s, but it’s mighty hard to ignore a $20K price difference.

  1. It’s more than just a $20k difference. Coupes bring a higher price than targas. I prefer the targa, but market pricing does not. Then again, the targa picks up at least a couple grand for the Fuchs. Still, 100k for a T is a chunk, unless of course it is Concours perfect and exactly what the buyer is looking for.

  2. Yowza………My 3 owner California ’70 911 T with dealer installed Coolaire and electric sunroof sold a year ago for half the ask on the Targa. Looks like there may be some meat on the bone for the buyer…..
