Made from the interior leather of a Porsche 911 (G-Series) Targa

Built in 1982

In form of a Targa the Porsche 911 was first presented to the world in 1965. Unlike the classic convertible, the roof of a Targa model cannot be folded in completely, but is manually removed as a hard top. The rear window is permanently installed.

The concept was intended in particular to counter the safety concerns about the convertible by combining the freedom of an open vehicle and – thanks to the rollover bar – the safety of a Coupé.

Where it all began: The first Porsche sports car (Model 356) was built at the same place where Porsche vehicles are still produced today. In the Stuttgart district of Zuffenhausen.

In homage to the cultural heritage of this district, the “Zuffenhausen” lettering now adorns our new special edition and it is named after this very place.
