Targa

I love the current Targa, I really do. And the fact that I own a 74′ example has nothing to do with it. For me, this is the best looking of the current generation, and one of the best ever…

I don’t know exactly why… the stainless bar ? the big rear window ? the less fussy side profile ? Who cares ?

This is the one I would take if… a RWD version existed. Please Porsche, give us a Carrera 2S Targa. Porsche, are you listening ?

All that matters…

Nice clip from Porsche on the new GTS “sub-family”.

The right one.

Remember this ad, the catchy tune ?
I do, at least the tune, with Portuguese lyrics… Back then, men were men, drinks could be had any time and Martini-Porsche was ruling the tracks !
How appropriate that the ad stars the mighty Carrera Turbo that almost won Le Mans in 74, ending up in 2nd.

50 year old tech, sort of…

Old Porsches are still strongly competent machinery, also when racing. Below, there’s a small comparison between the times obtained by a Porsche 918 vs a 60’s 911, although one with a few 90’s bits.

And if you dig for facts you can also learn that this particular example (Jack Olsen’s Black Beauty II) bettered the time set by a well driven, current gen 911 (a 991 50 year edition). Guess there’s no replacement for lightness…

For your viewing pleasure, you can also watch the whole lap.

This reminds me of a phrase I read…There are no classic Porsches, just old Porsches… Get the meaning ?

The spirit

Another fine model from GT Spirit and another fine addition to my shelf !
This time is a model very dear to me, a 75′ 911 coupe very similar to my own Targa.
