Porsche Passion to continue to make sure Dr. Porsche’s past is never forgotten.

I will start a 12-18 month full blown nut and bolt restoration. The car is a one owner 1967 911S Soft Window Targa. Very rare special order paint color:

17657 132 Ivory Elfenbein (Medium Ivory)

I will be posting pictures from start to finish on this page. Long live the memory of Porsche through the OCD crazy fans like us!

Wow wow wow V, this one's going to be awesome. Double whammy as far as Butzi goes, since it's a Targa, another of his brilliant designs.

You dodged a huge bullet with that white on red '73 RS, glad you found a nice early car to get your feet wet with.

thanks!

So true. I did end up purchasing an all original 40,000 mile M471 light weight 1973 RS. Only US delivered RS to the Holbert dealership.

Was Otis Chandlers car. It is an amazing car!

Thank you DJ

I have been on the hunt the past week finding NOS parts for the project.

It will be perfect as if it just left the factory floor when it is done!
