THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The 911T 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. Commemorating Porsche's successive wins at the famous Sicilian road race, the new model was termed "Targa", a term coined by other manufacturers since to describe this body configuration. The new 911 Targa was as close as Porsche came to 'wind in the hair' 911 motoring until the introduction of a full Cabriolet in the early 1980s.

This striking 'Tangerine' Porsche and was selected by its owner as a car that fitted his high standards of originality and authenticity but provided a usable, driver quality example. Its Certificate of Authenticity states that the car was delivered with the engine it retains and quotes supply in this color, as well as confirming that the black leatherette and corduroy seats are original. Other options included Comfort Equipment, Light Metal Wheels and Michelin tires. Not mentioned but seemingly also fitted as new was the rear wiper option. Completed in July 1970, the 'T' Targa is supported with important and interesting documents which trace original ownership in Germany as per its Fahrzeugbrief where it was delivered new to a Dietbald Krautle of Welfshalde on September 6, 1970, who kept the car for one whole year, selling it then to Klaus Rampercer on September 6, 1971.

At some point it migrated to North America, we believe in the 1980s, a journey which is recorded by a handful of Polaroids showing the car being containerized. It is understood to have come to the US through Canada and was acquired by the current owner in 2012 on the West Coast.

As viewed today, the Porsche has an unmistakable honesty to it, of particular note is the interior which is a combination that in preference to leather provides warmth and comfort in all seasons, versus the 'over hot' or 'over cold' of hide. Those interior seats show some age, but not excessive wear and the dash in particularly good condition. In addition to the noted papers a period handbook and wallet are also on file. Offering Porsche motoring and touring at an entry level, this is an appealing and reassuringly un-messed with example.
