Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. The 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the “Touring” form of the 911. It had the 2.0-litre engine, but with a performance output of 110bhp.
As of 1969, the 911T got the 2-inch lengthening in its wheelbase, however unlike its counterparts it did retain its Weber carburettors. 1970 brought an engine displacement increase, to 2.2L (2,195cc). That upped the output to 125bhp. For both ‘70 and ‘71, the engine had Zenith carbs, and kept the same compression ratio of 8.6:1.
This original matching number example on offer, is presented in a very complementing Irish Green with black leatherette interior. Still equipped with a vast amount of its original interior, a true testament to the level of maintenance this wonderful 911T has received of the years.
Leaving the factory on the 12th of November 1970, the car with its 5-speed transmission, is described to be a good driver and equipped with the desirable Rennsport bucket seats.
Unlike a number of its counterparts, the underneath, boot and floors of this 911T are said to be solid and rust-free. With its original 125 PS engine still under the bonnet, this resplendent example is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner
