In 1996 Porsche introduced is completely redesigned Targa for the 911 / 993 model. Gone was the removable roof that proved to be a bit cumbersome and storage was always an issue, and gone was the large B-pillar that gave the 911 Targa a different and to many, not a flattering look as compared to the undisturbed, smooth lines of its Coupe counter-part. The Targa version of the 993 saw the debut of a retractable glass roof, a design that would carry forward in the 911 line. The roof would retract creating a large opening that would continue the open air experience that the Targa 911's are known for. Everything about this design was better. The Targa can now share the same side view lines as the Carrera Coupes; no more pulling over to remove or install the roof as now it could be done with a push of a button, and no more wind noise that the earlier Targa's were known to have.

The 1997 Porsche 993 Targa offered here is finished in desirable Ocean Blue Metallic over Gray interior. The car was purchased new and remained in California until the year 2013 over the course of 4 owners. It is optioned with Comfort Seat, Color Crest Wheel Caps, Automatic Speed Control, Hi Fi Sound System, Remote 6 Disc CD Changer and Catalytic Converter. The three piece style wheels are standard only for the Targa. This 993 Targa has been enjoyed for 128047 miles since new and exhibits all the signs on consistent care and maintenance. Today the car presents itself in excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically. The interior and exterior of this Targa are both excellent. Recent major service includes: New clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, pilot bearing, ring gear, clutch assembly hardware, fork rod and bushings, new plugs, seat cable repair, hood and deck lid struts, air filter, roof seal, turn signal assembly, oil, fluids etc. The car is on the button and performs to the standard expected of the Porsche 993. The car comes complete will all books, tools, jack and spare as well as records of the service noted above and a clean CARFAX.

Air-cooled Porsche 911's continue to dominate the collectible sports car arena and are proven investments. The 993 variation marks the end of era as it is the last, best and most advanced of the Air-cooled generation.
