Soft serve: ’67 Porsche 911
In late 1964 the Porsche 356, which was introduced in 1951 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, was replaced by the new 911. It was equipped with a 1991-cc flat six engine that was first rated at 130 horsepower. The 911S was introduced in 1967. It featured higher 9.8:1 compression and was equipped with twin three-barrel carburetors. It’s 2.0 liter engine produced 189 horsepower compared to this 911’s 148. Both used Weber carburetors. Today’s Porsche find is not a 911S but a 911 with 148 horsepower. It is also one of the early Targas with a zip-out rear window. We always thought that was a pretty neat idea. We’ve owned a few Targas but only later models with a fixed glass window. This is an original example according the Kardex – Porsche’s method of determining original equipment and serial numbers of major components. All of that information is delivered to those who ask (and pay) in the form of a Certificate of Authenticity. In the Porsche realm, this is important because things like replacement engines and color changes effect values dramatically. The interior on this Targa is said to be original showing signs of age but still in good condition. This is the way we like them. The drivetrain has been rebuilt so most of the heavy lifting has already been done. This could be one of those buy it and drive it situations that are so elusive.
