Vehicle Description

Porsche's 911 has reached legendary status in the automotive world. It is the car that everyone, at one time or another, has dreamed of driving on their favorite winding road or polishing it up with a cloth diaper in their garage. The 911's captivating design and intoxicating car / driver connection has branded the hearts of automotive purists and performance junkies alike for over 50 years. The 911 has always been a target for concours quality restorations and modifications with an open checkbook approach.
The 1978 Porsche 911 Targa 3.6 liter conversion has been the proud recent recipient of such an approach. The car has been meticulously restored with an all steel wide body kit masterfully grafted and comes to us dressed in classic, "Speed Yellow" over black leather interior. The interior features classic sport seats, color keyed gauge cluster, original style VDO gauges, lightweight RS door panels, Nardi wood steering wheel, short shifter with wood knob, perfect dash and is outstanding in presentation, quality and appearance. The exterior features near flawless paint, 19inch BBS wheels, new Targa top, and excellent trim. The engine bay is highly detailed and houses a 1995 3.6 liter motor. Mechanical highlights include: Steve Timmons DME Performance Chip, Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers, Stainless Steel Headers Twin Plug Ignition, Performance Air Intake, Sachs 2.5 Light Weight Clutch, Brembo Turbo Brakes, Stainless Steel Braided Brake Hoses etc. The suspension has fully been rebuilt with Elephant Racing bushings and ball joints, turbo inner and outer tie rod ends, Bilstein struts and shocks, Tarrant Racing fully adjustable sway bars, Solid torsion bars, and Rennline strut bar.
The performance of this 911 is amazing and the presentation is stunning. The Porsche market is red hot and 3.6 liter conversions are widely accepted and hugely popular in the Porsche community. A car done to this level is the best of both worlds: It delivers hair raising excitement as well as the ability to win the Modified class at the next Porsche Parade. One could not come close to building a car to this level at the price offered here.
