Mid Week Match-Up: Targa California Car

It is Wednesday so that means another time for a Mid Week Match-Up (TM)!  Last we we found the best car to stick it to the man on tax day, but the number of suggestions paled in comparison to the previous week’s family car for Gianni feature.  Anyway, tomorrow marks the starting gun of the 2015 Targa California, so for the feature today we are looking for the best cars for a Targa event — no price limit.

Now in its 7th year, the Targa California (April 23-25, 2015) is a vintage rally non-timed event held on public roads in the Central Coast California and includes
special visits to car collections, a race track tour, and more. If you asked me to pic the perfect Targa car, it would be this 1986 Porsche 911 that has been modified to look like a 73 RS.  Find it here on eBay currently bidding for $40,100 reserve-not-met with $75,000 buy-it-now located in Mission Hills, CA.

For full disclosure, this car is offered by one of DT’s early readers, tippers, submitter, and all around car guy Tamas, who send me an email saying that this very car will be leading the pack for this years Targa California.  What could be better than a 911 with the looks of the early car but the chassis, suspension, and engine of a later example.
