Imagine driving south on highway 1 in California from San Francisco all the way to Los Angeles in a 912 Porsche Targa with the top off. The 912 Porsche Soft Window Targa is a gorgeous and rare car. What makes it even more incredible is that of the 2563 built only 180 of them were soft tops with a rare Porsche touch, the back window buttons down.
With the same engine as the Porsche 356 but repackaged in a 911, this car is an awesome combination of balance and weight for those winding corners along the Pacific west coast. The driving characteristics are a medley of classic Porsche handling that is lightweight with superior driving experience. And in 1966 there was nothing on the roads to compare it to.
The sad truth of the matter is that this one has since been sold for 59k so we’re all a little late, however checking a reputable Hemmings seller like Daniel Schmitt & Co. often and you might reap the rewards of making that dream road trip down Highway 1 to Los Angeles a glorious reality.
