En 1963, Porsche avait racheté le carrossier Reutter qui avait fabriqué la plupart des carrosseries des modèles 356, afin d'assurer la continuité pour la fourniture des carrosseries de ses futures 911 et 912. Pourtant, les nouveaux modèles remportèrent un tel succès qu'en quelques années, Porsche vendait plus de voitures qu'il ne pouvait en produire. Le carrossier Karmann d'Osnabrück, avec lequel Porsche entretenait une relation déjà ancienne, fut sollicité pour accroître la production et commença à construire des 912 à partir de 1966. En 1968, alors que Porsche travaillait sur le prototype de la future 911 avec empattement allongé, Karmann commença à produire également des 911 T et 911 S. Karmann continua de les construire pendant encore deux années.

Vendue neuve aux États-Unis, cette 911 construite par Karmann a été importée en Europe par le propriétaire en 2014 et se trouve désormais aux caractéristiques européennes quant à son éclairage et son compteur de vitesse. La voiture a été récemment restaurée bénéficiant d'une réfection de la boîte de vitesses, de l'embrayage et du système d'allumage, d'une révision du moteur et des carburateurs, ainsi que d'une restauration du châssis et de la carrosserie. Des photographies de la restauration de la carrosserie figurent au dossier avec des factures de GGA de Carrières-sur-Seine (5 200 €), d'AMS près de Paris (2 700 €) et du sellier Renard à Gennevilliers (2 000 €). Bleu Royal Albert avec intérieur en similicuir noir, cette 911 fraîchement restaurée est vendue avec les factures mentionnées plus haut et sa carte grise française (de collection).

•Partially restored
•Registered in France

In 1963 Porsche bought the coachbuilder Reutter, which had produced most of the bodies for the Type 356 models, thus ensuring continuity of body supply for the forthcoming 911 and 912. However, the newcomers were such a success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them. Coachbuilder Karmann of Osnabrück, with whom Porsche had a longstanding relationship, was asked to help increase production, starting in 1966 with the 912. In 1968, while Porsche was working on prototypes of the forthcoming long-wheelbase 911, Karmann started building the 911T and 911S models as well. Karmann continued to be involved in their manufacture for the next couple of years.

Sold new in the USA, this Karmann-built 911 was imported into Europe by the current owner in 2014 and has now European-specification lighting and odometer. The car has recently been extensively refurbished, benefiting from an overhauled gearbox, new clutch, new ignition system, engine and carburettors servicing, and restored chassis and bodywork. Photographs of the bodywork restoration are on file together with invoices from GGA of Carrières sur Seine (€5,200), AMS near Paris (€2700) and upholsterer Renard Saddlery in Gennevilliers (€2,000). Finished in Royal Albert blue with black leatherette interior, this recently restored 911 is offered with aforementioned invoices, and French carte grise (for classic car).
