In the model years from 1963 to 1972, Porsche engineers developed innovations such as the three-part safety steering system, internally vented disc brakes, front and rear spoilers, the removable folding roof of the Targa and a folding plastic rear window.

From 1966, the sports cars would be equipped with forged Fuchs wheels and mechanical fuel injection, and from 1968 Porsche offered a semi-automatic transmission with the Sportomatic as an option. From 1969, a sealed body cavity protected the models against rust.
