The Targa can be cool. An SC, or a Carrera, with a just right stance is a pretty cool car. But, they don't seem to look right in yellow, or with a duck tail.

I've never liked the look of the targa.

Tiff driving a 911HUL

apparently there is some history with 911 HUL reg tags in the UK...on every first turbo brought to the country or whatever.

the last vid posted had a few clips from this drive but left out the coup de grace at the end.

Back in my Porsche phase (I had a 911SC) the consensus of PCA owners that I associated with did indeed debate whether it was a true Porsche. Of course the 914 and 924 were considered

I've never liked the way they looked, but then again I've never liked the convertible ones either, its always been the full roofline that's been attractive in my eyes.

Although, as much as I like open-air motoring, I've been contemplating one lately. I think a soft-window 912 would be tits, if I ever get to the point where I sell the SC and the 968 Cab.




I doubt I could ever own a glass windowed version. IMO, the angle of the rear glass spoils the line of the car.
