Porsche 911 S 2.7 Signature Edition Targa Manual
1976 Porsche 911S 2.7 Targa Signature Edition, 5 speed Manual. Finished in factory Platinum Diamond Metallic with a Singer inspired custom tan leather interior with a faux weave finish. The odometer shows 141,295km and the Chassis number is 9116210142. Car number 142 of only 200 Ferry Porsche signature editions to leave the factory, this car also has a matching numbers engine. Additional equipment includes a 85L fuel tank and the optional Koni suspension. The car underwent a full cosmetic restoration not long before being imported from the USA to Sweden in 2019.
The Signature Edition comprised 100 coupés and 100 targas, allocated exclusively for select customers and Porsche centers in North America. This sondermodell came with a handful of distinguishing characteristics from factory. These cars were all finished in 944/9/3 Platinum Diamond Metallic, a soft champagne shade, and were also distinguished by their total lack of chrome. A set of 15” ATS ‘cookie cutter’ wheels were finished in matching Platinum Diamond Metallic along with headlight trim rings. Note on this car the trim rings have been removed and the original ‘cookie cutters’ have been replaced for a set of Fuchs, but if desired it would be possible to obtain a used set of these wheels and respray.
Inside the car occupants nestled themselves into a specially created interior combined of tan leather and a special beige tweed cloth. The steering wheel rim came in matching tan, and on the centre pad the signature of Ferry Porsche was engraved. A wooden gear knob with Porsche crest finished off the package. As mentioned this car has had the interior replaced by the previous owners in the style of a Singer, with a faux weave fabric, with black leather also replacing the original tan dash.
A beautifully presented 911, perfect as it stands or with a little research and work it could be put back to the same spec it left the factory with, potentially increasing its appeal amongst collectors.
