912 Soft Window Targa production commencing for the 1967 model year, Targas came equipped with transparent plastic rear windows openable with a zipper. Later designated Version I by the factory, these „soft-window“ Targas are now extremely rare, with about 200 currently listed in the 912 Registry. In September 1968, Christophorus magazine noted that with the soft-window „The safety hoop is permanent but you can achieve four variations around it, depending on whether roof and rear window are used or removed.“ Take off the Targa top (fitting unfolded in the trunk) for a mega sunroof (originally called the „Targa Voyage“). Unzip the plastic rear window and you have a cabriolet with rollbar (originally called the „Targa Spyder“. You might leave the roof on and the back window down on blistering hot days, cold winter days, or even in a light rain. Button it up for complete enclosure in any weather. In consideration of increasing safety regulations, as of January 1968 Porsche constructed Version I Targas with a package shelf containing two small lockable compartments in place of the rear seats.
