Selling a 1968 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa
When the sales price of the Porsche 911 was increased in the early 1960s, Porsche executives feared they would narrow brand appeal and lose sales in the entry-level sports car category, especially since the Porsche 356 had been discontinued. As a result, the Porsche 912 was developed as an option for consumers, falling in a price category between where the Porsche 356 used to be and where the Porsche 911 was. The 1968 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa, as well as the Coupe, used an air-cooled four-cylinder engine capable of delivering 90 horsepower and propelling the car to a top speed of 115mph. The rear window was made of a heavy plastic and attached via zipper to the Targa top, effectively naming it the “Soft Window” by enthusiasts. Eventually glass was introduced as a factory option in 1968, adding slight practicality and the ability to add electronic defrost. As a result, Soft Window Targa variants became increasingly rare. The smaller engine and streamlined bodywork, which was nearly identical to the Porsche 911, enabled a very quick car that delivered over 30 miles per gallon and was widely popular with consumers.
