Footnotes

  • A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, 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 bodyshell 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 300 horsepower. The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 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, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. 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. The 911T (Touring) had been introduced as a new base model in 1967, 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. The T's power output then was 125bhp, increasing to 130bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-litre engine for 1972. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911T in 1973. The model was discontinued that same year.
    This particular 911T was delivered new to a Mr R Hartley (certificate on file) and imported into the UK from the Channel Islands in 1980. Its late owner acquired the Porsche in 1986. The most recent of the old MoTs on file expired in 1997 and the car will require re-commissioning before returning to the road. Additional accompanying documentation consists of the original service book and Porsche paperwork; sundry invoices from AFN, Malaya Garage and others; Swansea V5C; and numerous notes concerning running and maintenance dating back to the 1980s.
