THE PORSCHE 911T

Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These 'giant killers' could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts.

Starting in 1964 with the original 911, Porsche had produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sportscars that could compete with much more powerful cars thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling and offered a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car.

In 1967, the 911T was first introduced as a base model, effectively replacing the 912. With 110 horsepower and a Spartan purposeful interior, the 911 proved popular to driving purists. 1969 ushered in the first major changes to the iconic Porsche 911, which debuted in 1964. 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 brightwork before the switch to the more pronounced bumpers in 1974.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1973 911T Coupe, sporting Porsche's decidedly '70s Light Yellow paintwork is in very good condition throughout, including the striking Fuchs alloy wheels. Baring Porsche's '2.4' engine, this well-sorted coupe is mechanically sound and exemplifies Porsche's trademark performance and driving dynamics. Produced in the same year as the iconic and rare Carrera 2.7 RS, the 911T is a venerable sports car in its own right and offers an incredible comparative value and with its vibrant yellow paintwork, this solid 911 will undoubtedly be a head-turner in any situation.
