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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is an exceedingly original and beautifully preserved example of the desirable first-generation 911. Produced at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche plant in February 1970, this fine example was finished as it appears today; as the 2.2 T model with 5-speed manual transaxle, and painted in largely the same striking Light Yellow (6262) exterior paint as seen on the car today. The interior was trimmed in black leatherette, and remains equally intact and original to this day. Inside and out, one will notice original finishes and factory decals, and the odometer reading of just 60,063 at the time of cataloguing is indeed believed to be the original mileage. An oil change decal is affixed to the driver's doorjamb, and indicates the yellow 911 had 56,272 miles in 1984. The spare wheel and Firestone Phoenix brand tire appears to be original items, but the steel rim spare does suggest that the Fuchs wheel on the car might have been mounted at a later date. A Becker Mexico radio adorns the dashboard, which appears equally sound and well-preserved. A recent test drive by a Bonhams specialist was a very positive experience, where the very well handling and sorted, low-mileage 911T was experienced first-hand. Few cars of this vintage can boast such high originality as seen on this 911T Coupe, and acquiring such an outstanding, matching numbers example is an opportunity not to be missed.
