At the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche presented for the first time a two-door high performance sports car, the successor to the 356 model, the Porsche 911. In 1966, a more powerful version of this model, the Porsche 911S, arrived on the market. One of them, a 1970 Porsche 911S Targa is up for auction.
This car is finished in red, has been well maintained and has recently undergone a minor repair where a few parts were replaced, and is in good condition. It is equipped with a removable black roof panel, a stainless targa bar, yellow-tinted fog lights, and a single exhaust outlet.
Inside, the seats are trimmed in black leather, which also covers the dashboard and door panels. In front of the driver is a four-spoke steering wheel and a five-digit mechanical odometer showing 76,439 miles. Additional equipment includes a heater, vent windows, a Becker Europa AM/FM stereo, a locking glove compartment, and woven floor mats.
The Porsche 911S Targa is powered by a 2.2L flat-six engine with 180 hp (133 kW) and 147 lb-ft (199 Nm) of torque. It reaches 60 mph in 6.4 seconds with a top speed of 139 mph (224 km/h). Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. It is mounted on Fuchs 15″ wheels wrapped in 195/65 Continental ContiProContact tires.
The auction ends on February 23rd and the current highest bid is $75,000 USD.
