    73 Targa Rally Car

    since I started rallying I always had the thought of going for a targa as a second rally car for the more cruising type events in good weather regions.....

    as I have just totally restored my 84 targa I want to keep that one as is solely a street car.

    the lima to Cape Horn was postponed to 2021 and now I am contemplating acquiring the following donor and turning into a rally cruiser with originality in mind. a gentleman's rally car so to say:

    the project would be done at Tuthill as well:

    Re: 73 Targa Rally Car

    obviously the car would be totally stripped and rebuilt from scratch...so no need to go for a donor that is in better shape....

    decision will be made in the coming days...

    Cool project. Did any Targa's do rally in the day? I assume you need a roll bar?

    Love the concept Gentleman’s rally car. Will be following this thread...


    Re: 73 Targa Rally Car

    Great project!


    Re: 73 Targa Rally Car

    I know of only 1 current classic 911 rally car that did the P tom P.....obviously a Targa has its disadvantages. however, there are tougher rallies where the security of a roof is needed as well as chassis stiffness and lighter events where cruising in a targa is simply too much fun.

     

    and the plan would be a bolt in roll cage that can be removed.

    What is holding you back? The project in general or the specific vehicle? How is the rigidity of the targa roof and the rear window considering your projected use?

    The panel gap on the bonnet looks odd, would be curious what one will find during restoration. On the other hand, I guess a ground-up restoration will solve any issues that might arise. 


    Re: 73 Targa Rally Car

    what's holding me back is the notion of wether I really want another rally Porsche  its one of those yes no no yes decisions for me :)

    as for the panel gap or condition of donor, Tuthill is acquiring the car on my behalf and I trust their opinion and judgement on the condition and the value.

    obviously the targa will never be as rigid as the coupe for full on rally driving. but for open top rallying/motoring on easier events its a wonderful proposition.
