THE PORSCHE 911

Since Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356, the car has continuously amazed aesthetes, engineers, and driving enthusiasts, on its way to being known as a 'modern classic'. When planning the 911 designers retained the 356's rear-engine layout, 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. 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 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower.

In 1966, Porsche introduced the 911S, the first of a multitude of upgrades the 911 would realize throughout its history. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke 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 liters.

The 911T (Touring) had been introduced as a new base model in 1967, initially with the 2-liter engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-liter 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-liter engine for 1972. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, resilient 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.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

When the current owners acquired this 1970 911T they were enthralled with the unusual Champagne color. However, upon further inspection they were amazed to find that the original color was not Champagne, but in fact Tangerine - a color many find to be more unusual and exciting. Beyond the fantastic paint color, the enthusiasts also realized the engine was well maintained and ran beautifully, a solid foundation from which to begin any rebuild, and were thus immediately sold on this cars potential.

Figuring this car would be stunning with a proper Concours restoration they set out to refurbish the car. They began by stripping the car completely and taking the shell down to bare metal. From there they went through the engine, transmission and carburetors. The fuel system, brakes, and other components were refurbished or replaced as necessary. The carpets, rubber grommets and mounts, suspension mechanisms, chrome, dash components, and even badges were replaced. As impressive as the restoration itself, is the approach to which it was documented. This car is accompanied by an extensive documentation packet that includes photographs and videos of the restoration, as well as invoices and the cars Certificate of Authenticity.

With such an extensive, expertly conducted restoration this 911T is perfectly suited for tours and Concours; however, with as much attention paid to mechanics as aesthetics this car could easily be an enthusiast's gorgeous driver. The opportunity to find a great 911, with its matching numbers engine intact, and a wonderful restoration does not come along everyday, this one should be seriously considered by all 911 fans.
