“No real Porsche fans like the Targa,” says everyone on the Internet. Good thing I’m not some hung up Porsche fan then, I guess. I’ve never drooled over or dreamed of owning a Porsche 911. They’re wonderful cars, but I typically have visions filled with lumpy V8s. Still, I could see myself owning one some day in the future. Which one would I want? I’ll take one with a Targa roof please.
I don’t love convertibles. But having the ability to occasionally let in the sun or rushing wind sounds great. I remember really enjoying my Z31 Nissan 300ZX back in college, when I had the t-tops removed and stowed in the rear hatch. I have to assume the feeling would be even better with a Porsche 911.
It would be great if these remain undesirable as every other old Porsche out there keeps climbing in value.
What about you? What’s a vehicle that you find desirable, despite the main fan vase of that given vehicle thinking otherwise? Share your illicit loves in the comment section below.
Oh, and the Porsche 911 in the image above… I found it listed for sale on Craigslist. It’s located in Oceanside, California. The asking price is a bit under $43,000. Too rich for my blood. And the listed mileage is, ahem, a bit eye-watering. Otherwise, it’s a lovely looking thing, no?
