In the late 1960s, as the American federal government struggled with new and sweeping automotive safety regulations, the world’s automakers faced a potential ban on folding soft-top models. To help ensure that American drivers would still have the option of enjoying open-top motoring should those regulations go into effect, Porsche introduced its ground-breaking Targa roof style in 1967. Though the regulated demise of convertible soft-tops never was enacted, the Targa roof became a public favorite. Since its introduction over 40 years ago, about 10 percent of Porsche 911 buyers have chosen it.
