1974 Carrera Targa. This Porsche is a real deal factory duck tail Carrera. This Carrera is number 15. The goal of this build was to take a already awesome and rarecar and make it better.... The car was built to "show quality" standards. This car has many rare factory options. Rare factory fiberglass targa top. This car was ordered with manual windows. Numbers matching motor and transmission validated by Porsche certificate of authenticity. 100% Rust-free car purchased in Atlanta, GA. It took over five years to have the car restored. The Porsche is a R Gruppe inspired build. 7,600 miles on the complete ground up restoration. The engine was re-builtusing RS pistons, rings, E cams, and PMO Carburetors. A stainless steel sport muffler and a stainless heat exchanger were installed. The original transmission was rebuilt. Brakes were rebuilt and rebuilt Koni shocks installed.

I also have over 50 pictures documenting before the car was restored, during the build, and pictures of the factory duct tail spoiler being completely restored. I have all receipts that will go with the car.

The car comes with one large box full of documentation, pictures, dealer manuals, repair manuals, Porsche performance hand book, rare Porsche Carrera posters from 1974, and a bunch of miscellaneous documents. The car runs, drives and stops awesome.

I am regretfully selling to change up my collection a bit.
