    Is this 72 Targa number 12 , actually a pre-production car ? or are they just quessing (blowing smoke). It is a built for US spec model ( it has a US door sticker). I would doubt that a pre-production car for the entire 1972MY S / S Targa / or just Targa range would be a US model. So I would have an easier time believing that it was a car built for an important US customer , just an early example , or a pre-production 'US spec.' car.

    Oh yes , I hate the fact that this dealer continually states he has "Kardexes" on his offerings. When in fact he has COA's (and he knows the differance). This seller is not worth speaking to regarding any 'facts'.

    He thinks he knows it all , and all issues are cast in stone...known for certain.

    Here's a number 11 car from 1969 . It was the first production unit for this model. And a eurospec. version I believe :

    "first production 914-6 #0011
    November excellence article on the first production 914-6 euro car used as an assembly / production car."

    From what I can assertain . The factory usually did not waste more than 10 shells (or less) per model (and I believe sometimes a crossover on sub-models) on what could actually be called 'pre-production'. And I probably should not use the word "waste" , as they were all used by someone then sold.

    In the picture of the engine it appears that engine is not equipped with MFI. Am I seeing this correctly?

    Best,
