Mention the word Targa Florio to vintage road racing aficionados, and you’ll get them excited! This famous race in Sicily, Italy dates decades back and has Porsche history written all over it. So much so that Porsche’s success in that course, paved the way for the name ‘Targa’ permanently etched in its line of road going production cars. Thus when the Stuttgart firm decided to pursue an innovative semi-convertible sports car, the ‘Targa’ badge was adopted.
The very first Porsche to carry the ‘Targa’ nameplate was on the 1966 Porsche .
A first generation 911 Targa
Captured in essence by this vintage SIKU of Germany.
