The artfully restored Porsche 911 S. 2.4 Targa and the Chronograph 1 – 911 S 2.4 Targa were first presented to the world at the special exhibition 50 Years of Porsche Design at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. After that, the anniversary bundle was exhibited at Monterey Car Week in California in August 2022. These unique specimens are in New York now where, on November 29th, Stefan Buescher, CEO of the Porsche Lifestyle Group, will personally present them to a select audience and the press at the opening of Luxury Week at Sotheby’s auction house. Both Targa and Timepiece will be available for sale through an exclusive joint online auction from November 29th to December 14th.
Porsche 911 S. 2.4 Targa and the Chronograph 1 – 911 S 2.4 Targa pay tribute to the close collaboration between Porsche Design and Porsche as well as to Prof. F. A. Porsche, founder of Porsche Design and the designer of the legendary Porsche 911.
Built in 1972, the Porsche 911 S 2.4 Targa was restored by the experts at Porsche Classic over a period of two years. The Factory One-Off was built as part of the new Sonderwunsch (special request) program. It is the historical counterpart to the limited-edition special model “Porsche 911 Edition 50 Years of Porsche Design” (model 992). The color black is featured in both the interior and exterior. The one-off is fitted with Sport-Tex in a classic checkered pattern in black and cool gray. As a tribute to the brand’s anniversary, the car features “Porsche Design” lettering on both sides. The “50 Years of Porsche Design” logo embellishes the headrests while the dashboard is decorated with a silver-colored “911” plaque bearing the lettering “Edition 50 Years of Porsche Design.”
Manufactured for the auction, the Chronograph 1 – 911 S 2.4 Targa is a special, custom-made version of the limited anniversary edition of the Chronograph 1. The dial, crown, wristband, and case back feature the historic Porsche Design logo. The design of the winding rotor on the back of the case reflects that of the historical Fuchs rims of the Targa from 1972. This was developed over the course of detailed construction and testing by the engineers in the in-house watchmaking facility in Solothurn, Switzerland. It translates the movement of the wearer’s wrist into energy to power the mechanical chronograph caliber.
