In the early seventies, Porsche were in a "rich vein" of competition success. It`s not surprising that the 2.4 litre 911 variants of that time are considered a reflection of that engineering prowess. Race input had resulted in revised suspension pick-up points and Koni dampers enhancing the 911. Power from the 2.4 fuel injected unit resulted in a wonderfully free revving engine and the larger capacity gave the 911 that much more drivability in the lower rev range enhanced by the 915 5-speed gearbox. Steve McQueen helped to immortalise the 911 'S' in a "reflective moment" at the Sarthe in the film "Le Mans".

This, left-hand drive, 1972 911 T Coupé has been cherished by its current owner in Ireland for over 15 years. The car retains many of the components that came with it when it left the factory in 1972, including the original radio and speaker that are fully operational. In 2009, this Porsche was fully stripped down to bare metal by a specialist classic car restoration company and re-painted in its original colour of Alpine White. The underbody was also rust treated at this time and. as a result, the bodywork is in lovely condition and the black interior looks very sharp indeed with carpets and leather re-trimmed when it was restored.

The vendor is very complimentary towards the engine, gearbox and brakes. "The six carb motor is strong, reliable and powerful. The sound of this engine is phenomenal and it has lots of torque." The car has been the subject of regular full services including valve adjustments, new valve cover gaskets, new air filters, new spark plugs and consistent oil and fluid changes. It's had no modifications or alterations from the standard factory specification and basically is just a lovely, straight, early 911.
