The Porsche 911 first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the ‘901’, but shortly after production commenced in 1964 it had become the ‘911’ following Peugeot’s complaints about the use of ‘0’ model numbers. The preceding Type 356’s rear-engine layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; but over time it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs 5-spoke alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp.
Finished in Gulf blue and orange livery with black interior and leather sports seats, this 911T presents very well indeed. Fitted with a 1977 2.7 engine tuned by Krämer, original matching number 5 speed sport gearbox and a roll cage at the rear, this bespoke 911T is ready to be raced at historic track events or even be used as a leisurely runabout.
Provided with a current TUV and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and displaying a mere 69,000 kilometres on its odometer, this is a great opportunity to purchase a top of the range example of one of the ever appreciating early touring Porsches.
Further upgrades to this car also include; fitment of K&N air filter system, stainless steel heat exchanger, brake callipers from a 3.2 Carrera, RS door trim, 8 / 8J*15 Rims with new P6000 N2. Mudgards and rear bumper in GRP, hoods with quick release, special sports steering wheel.
