1977 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa


  • Coveted model produced in very small numbers for just two years
  • In current ownership for 17 years and always garaged
  • Comprehensive service history from main dealers and local independent specialists
  • Highly original and in lovely order
  • Fully stainless steel exhaust and heat exchange system
  • MOT tested despite being exempt, with no advisories accrued

The Appeal

Produced for only two years and in low numbers, the 3.0 Targa is a rare find amongst '70s 911s. Benefitting from Porsche's innovative 'safety cabriolet' arrangement that offers both open-air thrills and the comfort of a proper coupé when the hard-top is back on, Targas of this vintage are becoming increasingly sought-after.

This particular example stands out due to its comprehensive service history, long-term current ownership and lovely condition. Its only concession to originality is a full stainless steel exhaust and heat exchange system - a worthwhile upgrade making this an eminently usable classic 911.
