HOME / PROJECTS / TARGA TO COUPE

Introduction

Targa to coupe resto

Welcome to what we refer to as “The Klassiker”, named this due to it being our biggest undertaking on a project so became worthy of the title.  We have completed many many restorations on air cooled Porsche’s due to the rise in value but none that changed the actual vehicle type. Our client asked if we could create something truly different and wild. We had the perfect project car hidden away.



This 1979 911 SC car started life as a targa and along the way someone had altered it to mimic a 964 with original panels. The client stipulated that they would like a coupe please. Not shy of a challenge - we sourced a donor roof from the parts dept and set about the task. The roof took 160 man hours alone and with a tight 4 month deadline ticking it wasn’t easy but if we were to tackle this again we could half that time.

From targa to coupe

Each car receives a personalised body plaque with unique number and date of creation (birth day) complete with its own hardback book to commemorate its completion.
