While there are plenty of elite automotive outfits offering Concours-level restorations, very few can match the sheer authenticity and accuracy of genuine factory-backed restoration efforts, such as the world-class team at Porsche Classic. And though the Stuttgart firm’s renowned restoration team typically trades in antique models and works race cars, Porsche Classic’s latest restorative saw the restoration of a more contemporary vintage machine, transforming a barn-find into an immaculate nut and bolt restoration.
The specimen in question is a 1967 911 S Targa and was the first German market specimen to leave the factory, though not long after its initial purchase, it wound up relegated to a barn for four decades before being discovered by a collector. Born out of more than three years of labor, the car was brought back to life by a restoration team with access to over 60,000 different genuine spare parts as well as the factory’s original straightening sets, frame gauges, datasheets, and technical drawings, enabling the team to only use genuine, period-correct OEM parts. The end result is a 911 S Targa that looks like it could have rolled out of an oversized time machine, with every detail and component receiving an enormous amount of attention.
