1973 Porsche 911 S Targa | Classic Metallic Green

Porsche has a rich history of producing refined and powerful vehicles that represent style and ambition. The Porsche 911 model has been in production for over 50 years and the 1973 Porsche 911 S Targa in Metallic Green represents the last of the original 911 shapes with the chrome bumpers and 2.4L engine, making it a highly collectable vehicle. This 911 S Targa has a great story, the original owner came from Germany when the vehicle was only a few years old and was then a Calgary local who has owned it ever since. It contains all of its original pieces, has never been in an accident and has only 96,000km. This vehicle has the exquisite Porsche DNA, and offers you a chance to take part in the history of the great 911 model.

At the time of its creation, nothing was held back in terms of innovation and extravagance in the early days of the 911. High-quality materials that are a delight to experience adorn the inner layout as you are given the available seating of a second row. With an attractive exterior design, the 1973 Porsche 911 S Targa presents features, such as the long hood and chrome bumpers, that are exclusive to the era of this model. The Metallic Green period exterior shade highlights the iconic shape of the design and brings forward an attractive presence on the road. Silver accents and smooth edges complete the look with a level of sophistication that goes above and beyond. Round headlights represent the classic Porsche look and bring visibility with an aesthetic appeal.

The 1973 Porsche 911 S Targa holds a very high specific output with a mechanically fuel injected 2.4L engine. For its era, in 1973, it was a representation of a very high performance car with an unbeatable racing record and a top speed of around 150mph. The acceleration capability of 0-60mph in about 6.5 seconds brought it a reputation on the international endurance racing scene in 1973, as a 911 RSR won the Targa Florio outright. This is a quintessential display of the last of the original 911s with the most powerful engine for this series of production cars.
