Behind the Scenes – Shooting Our 1979 Porsche 911 Targa

There’s something about the sound and feel of an air-cooled 911. The throbbing, visceral soundtrack, the direct and poised steering and most of all, that iconic shape. This 1979 Porsche 911 is a Targa. It’s essentially a hardtop with a removable roof panel to let the outside in as you become one with the B-Road that lays before you.

That was what the team all took away from shooting this classic 911. Finished in iconic Guards Red with a unique tan and maroon interior, this sports car is certainly as striking as it is timeless. After being given a full check-over by the Bridge Classic Cars workshop, it was given the green light to head over to The Hangar, the base of operations for all of our filming.

The 3-litre Flat-Six pulled strongly across the ex-Airforce base. The car just wanted to run, its long gearing and sensational soundtrack make every occasion in the car special. The signature good looks of the 2nd generation 911 were perfect in the Suffolk summer sun as it made lap after lap of the base without any fuss, this is truly a car for all seasons.

And now, Bridge Classic Cars wants to give one lucky winner the chance of experiencing this magnificent piece of automotive design and engineering forever! That’s right. You could win this 1979 Porsche 911 Targa!
