Rare Ocean Blue Metallic Paint 3.6-Liter Flat-Six Engine (285 H.P. / 251 ft-lb of torque) 6-speed Manual Transmission 1 of only 567 Targas Imported to the US for the 1997 Model Year A Highly Desirable combination of the 993 body shape and the desirable glass roof Targa design. The 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is a testament to both heritage and innovation. Its a descendant of a legendary design concept dating back to the 1960s, reimagined for the modern era with a revolutionary glass roof that redefined open-top motoring. A true sports car at its heart, this Targa is a 911 built to thrill, yet it offers the refinement and luxury befitting of its iconic badge. The Targa concept, named after the legendary Targa Florio race, first appeared in 1965 as a response to safety concerns surrounding full convertibles. Porsches innovative design featured a removable roof panel and a robust roll bar, delivering open-air excitement with added structural rigidity. The 1997 Carrera Targa revolutionized this idea with its expansive, retractable glass roof a marvel of engineering that transformed the driving experience. With a fully intact roof structure, the vehicle maintains its structural rigidity, resulting in an open-top driving experience with no compromise to handling. Porsche produced a limited number of Targas across the 993 model generation, further enhancing their collectability. This 1997 example stands out as the culmination of years of refinement in the air-cooled 911 series. Its combination of classic lines, advanced technology, and the unique Targa experience makes it an object of desire for enthusiasts seeking a true drivers Porsche. This stellar example is finished in Ocean Blue Metallic Paint, with a classic grey interior. Sending 285 HP to the rear wheels and 0-60 in just 5.5 seconds, you will have your hair blowing in the wind, and your ears soothed by the synthony of the famous air-cooled 3.6 Liter engine.

In 2003, six years after purchasing the vehicle, the owner moved down to California, and made sure to bring his beloved 993 Targa with him. After 17 years in the golden state, the owner and the car relocated back up to the Pacific Northwest, where it resided for 2 more years. After 23 years of ownership, the original owner decided to sell the car to a gentleman out in Maryland. Records show the vehicle was recently serviced in December of 2023 and has only accumulated 2,000 miles since the original owner.
