As we have per kardex found out this car was used in testing department, maybe for future upcoming S model released late 66 as 67 model?

Urbans Garage Team Will Do Some Research Regarding History Of The Very Early Targas

This car 006 has still in car S gearbox. Engine is per number a 1965. Probably with higher power. If this car was equipped with all other S parts i feel it would be interesting to find out if also engine was built with coming S spec.
We have gathered pictures from car 006 previous owners, some date back to 60-ties. But owners can modify their cars. Car 006 can probably easily be recognized from rear different 911 badge. I have attached a picture from second owner.
This car 006 has been delivered with Fuchs wheels. 6.7.1966. I have asked very many Porsche historians and i have good reason to believe that car 500006 was first or one of first cars from factory delivered with iconic Fuchs.
This car 500006 schould have according to info gathered from Porsche historians which have copies of internal production documents given from museum to research other historical cars in sequence builddate around 1965 december. I have no documents which states 500006, unfortunately i have only earlier.
This car number 006 is the car with earliest ausgeliefert date, delivered from factory, of the 10 versuchswagens. 9 sold from factory 1 was scrapped. Which gives me the feeling looking at all info i have in my possession this is the very first Targa delivered from Porsche?

We will restore the car to specifications from when the car was delivered new
