This 1967 911"S" Soft Window Targa #500100 was the prototype car built by PORSCHE to show off the new concept.

The #500100 had a tough & rough life up to the point we received it. We had to restore most of the chassis on our Celette Fixture Bench, and hand make many of the rusty sections that are no longer available.
It has turned out fantastic, and now at paint!
