GALLERY: Porsche 911 Targa

At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that matters is this question: how can we become even better? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.

The 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing , rallying , and other forms of automotive competition. It is among the most successful competition cars. In the mid-1970s, naturally aspirated 911 Carrera RSRs won major world championship sports car races, such as Targa Florio and 24 Hours of Daytona , even against prototypes. The 911-derived 935 turbo also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979 and Porsche won World Championship for Makes titles in 1976, 1977, 1978 and 1979 with 911-derived models.


In August 1967, the A series went into production with dual brake circuits and widened (5. 5J-15) wheels still fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 165HR15 CA67 tyres. , and the previously standard gasoline-burning heater became optional. The Targa (meaning "plate" in Italian ) version was introduced. The Targa had a stainless steel-clad roll bar, as automakers believed that proposed rollover safety requirements by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) would make it difficult for fully open convertibles to meet regulations for sale in the US, an important market for the 911. The name "Targa" came from the Targa Florio sports car road race in Sicily, Italy in which Porsche had several victories until 1973. The last win in the subsequently discontinued event was scored with a 911 Carrera RS against prototypes entered by Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. The road going Targa was equipped with a removable roof panel and a removable plastic rear window (although a fixed glass version was offered from 1968).
