Firstly, yes it rattles If this is a big concern for you then I'd recommend you get a coupe. I drove the car with the roof open 99% of the time, so it really wasn't a big concern for me. Aside from that, the targa experience is unlike any other car. Even at night and the night sky above, its pretty cool .
I don't have the records from the PO, but I saw them (bought through a handler who wouldn't provide the records because the name and address of the PO was on them) and I called the dealer who knew the car and verified its history. I also had a PPI inspected and the car is known by the Stable in San Francisco.
Hi, I saw your ad for the Targa 4. Looks nice! Do you have more photos to share? I don't know much about Porsche (I own a BMW) but have started looking at 997's. I like the Targas but read lots of mixed reviews. Do you have any detailed maintenance history to share? How is the top? Does it rattle? Thanks in advance for your time.
