BMW also produced a limited run of targa models referred to as the Baur convertibles. From '72-'75, they existed with targa-tops, a removable metal roof section over the front seats, and a soft fold-down rear window. All of the Targa models were 2002s.
The rare New Class convertibles were built for BMW by Baur (today, IVM Automotive) as a true cabriolet and as a Targa (roll-bar) model in 1600 and 2002 styles.
Mechanically, the convertibles are identical to the coupes, except they are two inches shorter than the coupes.
Baur's Targa version of the 02 series was introduced in 1971 for the European market. Few were imported into North America. The Targa model had a sunroof and a convertible rear windscreen.
The Targa had a built-in roll bar as a safety feature. The rear portion of the top folded down and the midsection was removable. The extra "hardware" added about 110 pounds to the vehicle's weight.
