The exceptionally restored Porsche comes finished in black and features a Targa roll bar in Platinum Satin finish, original historic fabrics such as the black Sport-Tex checkered flag upholstery, and is embossed with ‘50 Years of Porsche Design Edition’ on the side stripes, among other elements.
“We deliberately took a different approach with this project. We’ve created a unique vehicle that blends tradition and present day, and bears the signature of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.” – explains Uwe Makrutzki, Head of Porsche Classic Factory Restoration at Porsche AG.
Estimated to fetch between $275,000 USD – $325,000 USD, the one-of-a-kind 1972 911 S 2.4 Targa and the Chronograph 1 – 911 S 2.4 Targa will be sold as part of Sotheby’s Luxury Week New York this December, and presented for the first time outside of Europe at Monterey Car Week 2022.
