This particular 911 S Soft Window came off the production line on June 23 of 1967 (according to the Certificate of Authenticity issued by Porsche).
In 1967, Porsche introduced the S version of the 911, as well as the soft window Targa body style, which at the time, Porsche called the “4 in one” because of its versatile fold away back window and removable Targa roof section. The 2.0 liter S engine offered 160 bhp compared to the standard 911’s 130 bhp.
“The S version also benefited from upgraded suspension, brakes and the 67 S was the first car to introduce the famous Fuchs forged alloy wheels. The S package included 4.5 J X 15 Fuchs alloy wheels, Koni shock absorbers, ventilated brake discs, front anti-roll bar increased to 15 mm plus the addition of a 16 mm rear bar. It was equipped with a Durant exterior mirror, leather rimmed steering wheel, basket-weave trim on lower dash, and larger deco strips on the bumpers and lower body. The S also weighed less than the standard 911, tipping the scales at only 2.272 pounds (1032 kg). ” Source: Porsche 911 Red Book 1965 -2005, by P. Paternie.
Production numbers on the 1967 soft window 911 S cars vary from 360 to at most 483 made. Rest assured that many of these early cars are gone, so the remaining number is very, very small today.
For sure, the first year, 1967 911 S Targa (soft window), is one of the most significant street legal Porsche’s ever made.
This car, # 500614 S was sold new in the US, and was acquired by the previous owner, a football legend in his time.
He bought the car because he wanted both his sons to have a black 1967 S soft window Targa.
When he acquired the car it was still in its original Irish Green livery but he decided to have this soft window painted black, so both his soft windows would be black.
When this bare metal respray was done the car was fitted with new rubbers and a brand new Targa roof cover and complete opening back widow assembly including a new cover to place over the back window when it’s folded down. The interior is still mostly original and has only been well maintained and cleaned.
The car is equipped with a period correct Blaupunkt radio, the five gauges are all in excellent working order (even the clock) and the car shows just less than 82.000 miles ( 132.000Km, believed to be original) on the original black / green speedo. This is what we would consider a very low millage car, having only covered around 3000km per year over the last 43 years!
Today, the deep black paint suits the car very well, especially with the chrome and golden trim, period correct Fuchs wheels and the stainless steel brushed Targa “safety” bar. Most of the trunk space is original and the car even has its rare and original 5 spoke Fuchs spare wheel. All the wheels are the very rare 4.5″x15″ ’67 only Fuchs, these were restored to the factory anodised finish by Harvey Weidman and they are absolutely stunning.
This super rare early 911S Softwindow still has it’s original factory delivered, matching numbers engine and gearbox! The engine is totally stock (except for the K&N air filters).
After we received the car our Porsche mechanic went completely through the car. Everything was checked, cleaned and if necessary overhauled. The brakes have been redone, and the engine was fully detailed and serviced, the rare original 40IDS carburettors have been overhauled using only new original Weber parts from Italy. The engine idles perfectly and pulls strong to the factory redline. Especially nice is the experience of the open soft window and the sound of the 6 cylinder boxer motor in the back. This has to be experienced in order to be able to imagine and appreciate. Those period 2.0 liter 911S engines are very quick, they rev up through the power band so easily, so musical and deliver fantastic power and torque.
This is your unique opportunity to acquire a car with true investment potential. It’s a rare and very desirable Porsche that’s for sure going to increase in value in the years to come and at the same time it can be enjoyed as a daily driver or just a fabulous collector car to go out driving with the family on weekends.
