1979 Porsche 911 Targa

Our 1979 Porsche 911 Targa restoration project


Purchased from one of our customers, our 911 Targa was originally in Guards Red and whilst very tired was a sound base from which to start from. The Service Team decided that they wanted to create something a little different from its original colour combination that would brighten the showroom and showcase our services.

The Targa was then dismantled leaving a bare shell for blasting which allowed the team to see what they had to work with. Our Porsche Approved Body Shop, Sowton Motor Body Repairs then went to work on the shell and application of the lovely Porsche Orange. All other parts were then cleaned, replaced or reconditioned as required before carefully rebuilding back at the Centre. The engine and gearbox were dismantled and rebuilt using new parts as required to ensure power and reliability were back to where they were in 1979.

Now sitting in our showroom, the Targa is available to go to a new home and we would welcome any enquiries. Please contact a member of our team by calling  01392 822800 or email info@porscheexeter.co.uk for more information.
