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 favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement.aThe 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the “Touring” form of the 911. It had the 2.0-litre engine, but with a performance output of 110bhp. The T was the base model, costing 10 percent less that its more powerful brother, the 911S.
As of 1969, the 911T got the 2-inch lengthening in its wheelbase as did the 911S however it did retain its Weber carburetors 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 125bhp. 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 2.4-litres (2,341cc) and the 911T output 140bhp at 5,600 rpm.
