Footnotes

  • A new base model introduced in 1967, the 911T (Touring) came initially with the 2.0-litre engine, gaining the 2.2-litre unit, along with the rest of the range, in 1969. Introduced at the same time, a lengthened wheelbase improved the 911's handling and then in 1970 the air-cooled 'flat six' underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 litres. All 911 variants received the 2.4-litre, 190bhp unit for 1972.
    Two years after the coupé's introduction in 1964, a convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honour of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic - became available. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections, which were stowable in the boot. For 1969 a quieter and less leak-prone fixed rear window replaced the less than perfect rear hood, and the ever-popular Targa would continue in this form well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way. The much loved and instantly recognisable Targa finally bowed out at the decade's end, when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range for 1999.
    A five-speed manual transmission model finished in dark red with tan interior, this 911T Targa has been converted from left-hand to right-hand drive using only original Porsche parts, while other alterations from factory specification include the brakes, paintwork and stainless-steel exhaust and heat exchangers. Acquired by the current vendor in 2007, the car is only being sold because he has since purchased a later 911. Described as in generally excellent condition, this classic 911 'soft-top' is offered with current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document.
