THE PORSCHE 911

In 1967 the 911T was first introduced as a base model, retaining the unique and successful rear engine layout as well as the same basic styling; the majority of the changes to the 911 were internal. Dimensionally, the rear track and wheelbase grew, while the overall length stayed the same as the earlier cars. In 1972 the 911T, along with the E and S, benefitted from a larger 2,341cc engine commonly referred to as the 2.4. 1972 also brought the introduction of the 915 transmission, a robust 5-speed derived from the 908 racecar.

1973 was the final year of the desirable early 911 styling featuring the small bumpers and more prevalent bright work before the switch to the more pronounced bumpers in 1974.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Equipped for the US market, it is believed that this Targa was delivered new to a Mr. McClure of Gastonia, North Carolina. The car was optioned with the desirable forged alloy wheels, Koni shocks (instead of the traditional Boge), and stabilizer bars in the front and rear. Besides that, the car was treated with loudspeaker and noise suppression, comfort equipment and tinted glass all around. Indeed, a driver's car with the right mix of sport and comfort.

After the passing of Mr. McClure in the late '80s the car was placed in a dry storage until 1995, when it discovered and bought by Mr. Stafford, who moved it to another dry storage but never got to the restoration. The consignor, who is believed to be only the third owner, bought the car in very original but non-running condition. Since acquiring it, the consignor has treated the Targa to a comprehensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration. Receipts and photos of the work performed can be found in the car's extensive history file, along with the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity.

Today, this matching numbers 911T Targa from the final production year of the 'classic' 911 shows beautifully both inside and out. The car was delivered to the US in a Metallic Green over a Beige/Tan Leatherette interior but is now presented in the period correct Tangerine over an appropriate black with Houndstooth interior. With an enticing power band, excellent road holding, and the pure, unmistakable look of the classic 911 Targa, the 2.4-liter cars are among the best ever to come out of Porsche's workshops.
