The Porsche 911 is perhaps the most timeless design ever seen in motoring history. The car dominated its class as soon as it was launched in September 1963. Today, albeit very much more developed, it continues to attract adulation from enthusiasts and the motoring press alike.
This unconventional and charismatic car evolved at an astonishing pace in its early life, with significant developments occurring annually during the late sixties and early seventies. One of the most significant years for 911 development was 1972, the year in which this example was made. There was a notable increase in cubic capacity to 2,341cc, and power output rose by 10bhp to 165bhp in this ‘E’ model. The wheelbase was further lengthened and the shock absorbers altered, aiding high speed stability and reducing front end lift.
This 911 E Targa is one of the most sought after variants with the external oil filler cap. Having returned from the US in 2010 to Germany, the car was thoroughly restored to a high standard. A photographic documentation of which
is a available. Further documentation is supplied which includes its original delivery sheet from Porsche, its birth certificate stating that it still has matching numbers and was supplied with the following extras : M 400 Alloy wheels, M 404, M 409 sport seats, M 414 – 911 S instruments and oil tank, M 565 steering wheel and M 568 tinted windows. There are many further invoices available and the car is described as being in excellent condition and ready to be registered with
German historic number plates.
