1975 Porsche 911S Targa PrivateCars - Raleigh - 2 views
This 1975 Porsche 911S is a US-market Targa that is finished in red over tan vinyl and powered by a 2.7-liter flat-six paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Additional equipment includes 15″ ATS cookie-cutter wheels, a period Blaupunkt radio, retrofitted rear lap belts, and Euro-style headlights. The car spent time in Canada before it was acquired by the seller through a July 2017 BaT auction, and subsequent service included retorquing the cylinder head bolts and resealing the oil reservoir as well as replacement of the tires, brake hoses, battery, alternator, distributor, fuel accumulator, and other items. This 911S Targa is offered with an owner’s manual, a jack and tool kit, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, service records, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.
The car wears Guards Red paint with black trim, a brushed stainless steel Targa bar, and a removable roof panel. Rust repairs and a repaint are said to have been performed under previous ownership. Paint bubbles near the passenger-side headlight and on the lower portion of the passenger door are shown up-close in the image gallery below.
Painted 15″ ATS cookie-cutter wheels wear Michelin Premier A/S tires with 2017 date codes. The brake hoses were replaced in 2018, and a fluid flush was performed in 2019 according to the seller.
The interior is trimmed in two shades of tan vinyl with matching carpets and plastics. The seller has had rear lap belts and a period Blaupunkt multi-band radio installed. Splitting is evident on the perforated dash speaker grille.
Instrumentation includes a 150-mph speedometer and a tachometer as well as gauges for oil and coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 56k miles, 1k of which were added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown.
The 2.7-liter flat-six is said to have been rebuilt under previous ownership, while service since the 2017 purchase reportedly included re-torquing the cylinder head bolts and resealing the oil reservoir as well as replacement of the distributor, other ignition components, vacuum lines, fuel accumulator, shift coupler, and more. A new battery and alternator were installed in February 2020. A cold-start video has been provided by the seller.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Additional underbody images can be viewed in the gallery below.
The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity lists factory colors and equipment. The car is supplied with an owner’s manual, a jack and tool kit, and a spare wheel. Overview and test drive videos are shown below, and the seller has also provided drive-by footage as well as that showing the car driving toward and away from camera.
