The 911T (Touring) had been introduced as a new base model in 1967, initially with a 2-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit, along with the rest of the range, in 1969. The T's power output then was 125bhp, increasing to 130bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-litre engine across the range for 1972. Externally similar, the differences between them are manifest in trim details and mechanicals. The 2.4 cars are identifiable by their black engine lid grille with a 2.4 badge, a gunmetal 911 badge instead of the previous gold; bumper over riders changed to all-black, and horn grilles and sidelight-cluster rims changed from chrome to black. Being the base model, the T is fuelled by Zenith 40 T1N carburettors, and the 2.4s were first to receive the new 915 five-speed gearbox, with the Sportomatic box only available to special order. Most Ss and Es had sunroofs and electric windows, while the T had to make do with wind-up windows.  This 911T is a genuine, right-hand drive, UK car which was first registered in Glasgow on June the 18th, 1973. Porsches were rare in Glasgow in the early seventies and finished in bright Oxford Blue with a Beige leatherette and corduroy interior, this distinctive car must have turned a few heads in Sauchiehall Street on a Saturday morning.It was enjoyed by a number of owners over the following years until November 1997 when EUF 695L came into the possession of our vendor. At this point, the car was White and Red and had been rebuilt as an accurate evocation of the legendary 2.7RS, also hailing from 1973. Although he has carried out a considerable amount of work on the car, the bodywork today is essentially the same as 1997 and looking at the photographs it appears to be a subtle homage to the RS without going to the excesses that occasionally creep into RS recreations.  The car's history prior to our vendor's purchase is a little sketchy but, as far as he can tell, the owner before him in 1996 carried out the conversion fitting the revised bodywork, Fuchs Alloys, triple-choke Weber carbs, and a Momo steering wheel.Shortly after his purchase in 1997, the engine and gearbox were rebuilt, and the car was fitted with new front wings, Corbeau seats, four-point harnesses, and later a stainless steel exhaust system by Techspeed Racing of Leamington Spa. There are photos in the files showing all this work.Since the 1997 engine rebuild, just 12,000 miles have been covered, and the car continues to enjoy regular use in dry weather and is always garaged. He informs us that the “Car is MoT'd every year, and any matters addressed to ensure continuous use. The car has never broken down in my ownership.”As we said, the 911's history, prior to our vendor's purchase is a bit limited but there are MoTs going back to 1990 and an interesting DVLA 'Vehicle Record' showing a complete history of ownership since its first registration. In addition to the old MoTs and Tax discs, there is a Porsche C of A, and invoices for parts and maintenance from Tuthill Porsche, Two plus Two, and local specialists Track Day Toyz Ltd.  All four tyres are in good condition, it's fitted with a Thatcham Alarm, and the vehicle is accompanied by an unused spare wheel, jack and tool roll, two sets of keys, and a 911 T/E/S owner's handbook.The car is not perfect and would benefit from some minor bodywork attention, a little TLC, and fine detailing, but it has never been fully restored and quite frankly looks lovely. 1973 was the last year of lightweight cars before the advent of impact bumpers and, for many purists, the 2.4 is the last 'old-school' 911 and therefore all the more collectable particularly when they look like this.
