Porsche only made 1,123 Carrera Targas and very few were righthand drive models.  With only 52 UK cars registered with the Porsche Club Great Britain, this makes this example highly collectable. Produced between only 1976 and 1977, it was equipped with the phenomenal 911 Turbo's 2,994cc unit but without the turbocharger. Built before the '911 SC', it has all the trappings of the 'luxury model' SC and more: it's a different drive with more power at 200bhp and 10% lighter. Furthermore, it has the six bolt flywheel and a crank from the legendary Carrera RS.

Finished in black with a matching black leather interior, electric windows and electric mirrors, as well as a quality Alpine stereo system, this car presents well and comes with comprehensive service history with 104,000 miles now recorded. Benefitting from a recent engine rebuild and a new stainless steel exhaust in the last 4,000 miles, this very straight 911 comes with many bills showing the level of care and attention over a 20 year period of the car's life. Complete with all original tools and the tyre air compressor, this model must surely be the next 911 to appreciate given the low numbers built and its place in the 911 lineage.
