1972 Porsche 911 S Soft Window Targa

During 1970 and 1971, German automaker Porsche had increased displacement on the 911 S to 2.2L, giving the car additional power and meeting the demands of more stringent emissions and safety concerns in the United States. In 1972, Porsche would change it up once again, increasing displacement to 2.4L. The 1972 Porsche 911 S Soft Window Targa and Coupe models, which were dubbed the sport version of the illustrious 911, would run alongside the 911 T and 911 E models. Also during this time, Porsche would release the widely popular 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which boasted 210 horsepower and would be the precursor to yet another increase in displacement just a few years later. If you’re thinking about selling your 1972 Porsche 911 S Soft Window Targa, one of the ways you can help buyers verify your example as a 1972 model-year is by the new “chin” spoiler found on the front valence and the larger Fuchs alloy wheels that were now standard on the 911 S. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that will help set your model apart for a sea of 911 models.

The Soft Window Targa option was also widely popular during this time thanks to the many different roofing configurations and the ability for drivers to have an open-air driving experience like the Porsche 356 of the 1950s and early 1960s. However, restoration of the Targa top, particularly if it is in bad condition, can be expensive. Be sure to reflect the condition of the top in your asking price and be upfront with potential buyers about the car’s overall condition. These are just a few items that buyers will be considering when exploring 1972 Porsche 911 S Soft Window Targa models for sale.
