1970 Porsche 911T 2.2 Targa


‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminated and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past,’ Car & Driver.

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 five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory.

Registered in 1970, this lovely 2.2T Targa has enjoyed a restoration in the early 2000s, and is still presented in excellent condition in all respects. During the restoration the mechanic components were also rebuilt, and the car is said to run and drive very well. The Porsche will be supplied with a US title and has EU taxes paid.

Finished in a striking shade of Bahia Red with a contrasting houndstooth interior, this very attractive Porsche is a great buy for the Porsche enthusiast seeking a pretty yet highly useable early 911 which can be enjoyed all year round.

Registriert 1970, wurde dieser schöne 2.2T Targa in den frühen 2000er Jahren restauriert, und zeigt sich noch heute in ausgezeichnetem Gesamtzustand. Während der Restaurierung wurden auch die mechanischen Bestandteile gewartet, und das Auto fährt sich sehr gut. Der Porsche wird mit einem US-Titel übermittelt, und EU-Steuern sind bezahlt. Beendet in einem auffälligen Bahia Rot mit Interieur im Hahnentrittmuster, ist dieser sehr attraktive Porsche ein großes Muss für den Porsche-Liebhaber, der einen hübschen, sehr nutzbaren frühen 911er sucht, der das ganze Jahr hindurch genossen werden können.
