1971 Porsche 911T Original 2.2L

Description

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.

In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300bhp.

A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2 litres. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, un-burstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973.

This wonderfully original and unmolested example has covered a mere 64,000km from new and is described to be in excellent condition throughout. The car also benefitted from a bare metal respray in the original colour scheme by specialists, Dino’s Classics.
