1967 Porsche 911 912 Soft Window Targa
If you're looking for an original, please stop reading. This is a 911 hotrod (or "Outlaw" or "R Gruppe") made from a 1967 912. It was built by TLG Porsche of N. Hollywood, CA. It was built to imagine what a Soft Window Targa (SWT) R Gruppe 911 would have been. It was an expensive build at the time (early 2000) and built to a high standard of quality. The car started as a stripped 1967 SWT tub. Steel '73 911 fenders, RS flares and bumpers, RS torsion bars, 930 brakes, and a 915 tranny were added. The wheels are 15" 7's and 8's. A new 3.2block was built using a mild cam, bigger valves, and a Haltech engine management system. An RS oil cooler was added in the front wheel well. The easily torqued SWT tub was stiffened using a full roll cage that isn't too visible. It has a heater and a radio.
When I bought this car in 2012, it was running very rough. But without the Haltech software or expertise to tune it, we just couldn't get it to run properly. So we replaced the EMS with a new PMO carb set. The transmission was also rebuilt. It is now the best shifting 915 I've driven. New GTS Classics seats were added, as well as new Schroth Profi II 6-point harnesses. Recently, a MSD 6A ignition unit was added.
The paint is still very nice with only some minor imperfections. The targa top and back window are believed to be original and all in very good shape.
You can't help but smile when you drive this car. It is stiffer than acoupe. It is a different kind of sleeper that will frustrate the car ahead of or beside you.

Again, this car is a hotrod. It does not pretend to be an original. Any questions, please ask before bidding.
