The 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the “Touring” form of the 911. The 911T had the 2.0 liter engine, but with only 110 horsepower. The T was the “base” model, costing 10% less that its more powerful brother, the 911S. As of 1969, the 911T got the 2” lengthening in its wheelbase as did the other 911s. It retained its Weber carburetor while the other 911s received mechanical fuel injection.
1970 brought on the first engine displacement increase, to 2.2L. (2,195cc). That upped the output to 125 horsepower. For both ‘70 and ‘71, the engine had Zenith carbs, and kept the same compression ratio of 8.6:1. Until 1972, all 911T models had a different transmission than the 911S and 911E. In 1972, the 911s received 2.4Liters (2,341cc) and the 911T output 140 hp at 5,600 rpm. Part of this power came from the addition of mechanical FI, something other 911s had for years. Compression was lowered to 7.5:1. All the 911 models shared the same 915/12 transmission.
This is a lovely matching numbers engine and gearbox example, still retaining its original black interior and panels. Its 2.0 litre engine pulls well and is a joy to drive according to the owner. These lovely classic 911 Porsches’ are always in high demand and this one is surely be one of the nicest available.
