The 3.0-litre Carrera was sold between 1976-1977 and formed the link between two iconic 911 models, the early standard car and the 930 Turbo. During that period only 3,687 cars were produced which is a very small number when compared with nearly 58,000 911SCs and 76,500 3.2 Carreras that were manufactured over the years.Of the total number of 3.0 cars produced, 2,564 were Coupés and 1,123 were Targas, and not many of these were manufactured in RHD. The UK received a tiny number of Targas, believed to be less than 30, and it's not known how many were `Sport' specification, with (probably) only one in 'Continental Orange' making this a very rare car indeed.Chassis number 9116610033 is an original, matching numbers, UK, 3.0 Carrera 'Sport' Targa finished in Continental Orange (107) with a Black Leatherette / Tweed Inlay interior. The 'Sport' Option Pack was a list of 'M-Codes' available only in the UK and included front and rear spoilers, the ubiquitous Whale Tail, anodised aluminium in place ofchrome trim, Bilstein dampers, sports seats, and wider Fuchs alloys.This rather special car was displayed at the Diamond Jubilee, London Motorshow at Earls Court in October 1975 where AFN presented the new 3.0 Carrera model to the British public. Their colourful stand was the centre of attention and in addition to the Orange car, they displayed a Porsche Turbo in Platinum Metallic, a Carrera 3 Targa Sportomatic in Ice Green Metallic, and a 911 Luxe Coupé in Shamrock Green.Our Targa Sport was first registered on the 27th October 1975, just 2 days after it left the show. The accompanying history file shows Steatite Insulations of Redditch as the first owner, and they owned the car for 15 years, eventually transferring it to Miss Sophie Cliffe-Jones the daughter of Steatite's managing director, effectively meaning the car was in the same family for 20 years. Ownership subsequently changed twice between 1995 and 2010 before being purchased by 'Export 56' on behalf of a long-term client fromBrighton.The car is in extremely good order and has been well maintained during its lifetime. Over the past seven years, Export 56 have carried out work to the body, mechanics, running gear and electrical system. The front seats were recently retrimmed using the original tweed material.This car represents a rare opportunity to acquire a rare RHD, Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Sport Targa with a unique history. This is a very original car and in extremely good condition throughout, complete with its original tools. The history file makes interesting reading and one can only imagine the thousands of people at Earls Court in 1975 who stared at this sparkling orange Targa and thought 'one day'. Well, it could be your day!UK registered with an MoT, fully serviced, Historic Vehicle tax status, and ready for immediate use.
