    I think what you should do is head on over to camp rolling Rock and think about selling the engine that's in it, and then using that money to put towards per se a cheap junkyard engine that you could then have wizard fix up and it may somehow cost less than fixing the existing engine but don't do EV!

    I wonder what the car is like to drive at high speeds. In 1983 porsche reinforced the chassis when they produced the first cabriolet SC due to the car needing more rigidity. They were trying to make a convertible for years previously but couldn’t do so because of that issue.

    Well, I looked through the comments. Most say restore it, and rebuild the engine. But, I agree with the ones who say that it will not be worth the money you will have in it if you do. So, that makes restoration a perfect Hoovie decision. However, it is as far from original as you can get. It isn't going to be an investment car whatever you do. My take? Restore the engine. Hop it up a bit. Fix the electrical system. Patch the top. Make it reliable, and take it to Monterey car week. Do the Concours d' lemons with it. You have a Porsche you can drive the piss out of without worrying that it gets damaged or ruining the value. Have fun. In the end, it's your car, do what makes you happy.

    I would rebuild the engine and have a look at the transmission. I would vacuum Ebay for parts. Bite the bullet and make it a Targa again. There is the profit zone. Leave the paint as is for the next owner to decide. Plus show the machining etc.

    These guys clearly don’t know much about Porsche engines…I’m sure they’ll figure it out but kinda scary letting a guy work on your 911 who doesn’t know which cylinder is #1 and which is #6! Interesting the mechanic didn’t just immediately do a cylinder leakage test before drawing his fancy cardboard sign

    Many years ago, we had a guy buy an air-cooled Porsche, at Carlisle fleamarket. It had sat for maybe 20 years in a warehouse. It looked pretty good; but the guy couldn't get it running. Of course he put fuel in it and cranked it over & over. Brought the car to me and said he wasn't getting any fuel to the engine. OH My $$$$ Fuel tank was rustier than I ever saw, fuel lines were rusty, Not too bad yet, just wait! Rust all through the injection pump $$$. He actually paid us for the work we did; but didn't have enough $$$$ to finish the job. He paid the bill and we pushed it outside. He still comes in but never mentions the Porsche.

    Personaly i think you should rebuild the original motor and bring the targa back, we have more than enough evs on the roads. As bad as it looks this car has a soul, an ev swap would make it insanly fast and probably the value would be higher but will make it also soulless. Just another smartphone with a jumbopack battery :)

    What An electric conversion on a 911? And for an aircooled one! Honestly I am not a Porsche fan. But that is a crime! if it goes on like that, I think I have to stop watching this channel! And wizard is a getting spoilt and loves only very expensive over the top repairs. He seems to be the kind of guy who tells you to dump a car because of a small flaw! Or charging over a thousand$ for every repair! One example: The Corvair engine that was toast. At least open it up to check what was the problem! Even if you do not plan fixing it. I am sure a guy on a tight budget and enough skill might have tried to save this engine. Same with this Porsche motor.

    Ok here is my theory: European cars go GREAT in Europe and USA cars go GREAT in the USA. There must be some kind of culture divide whereby over this side of the pond, the most respected cars are the Germans and the cars that we do not even look at are the American cars. I think that we have the spares and the dealers to maintain our cars and I guess that you do not. Hence my current 3 cars are all German and all good and reliable. Dunno????
