Description

"The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included; namely the powerful 911 derived 935 which won the 24 Hours du Mans and other major sports car races outright against prototypes. The 911 T was the first Porsche to receive the new Bosch K-Jetronic or CIS engine (continuous injection system) from January 1973 onwards. Often referred to as 1973½, these ‘T’ models produced 140bhp and also boasted the newer type standard H pattern (915) gearbox which, in tandem, provided a smooth yet powerful engine and proved great fun to drive.
This well-presented example, delivered new to the USA, is offered in its original colour combination of Sepia Brown over a brown leather interior. Optional extras include US equipment, manual antenna, loudspeaker, noise suppression and comfort equipment. Imported from California, the body is notably in good order as is the paintwork and engine bay. This 911 has recently been treated to a refinish to the interior which included new carpets, headliner, seat facings and door cards. This matching numbers example in a rare and desirable colour combination comes complete with EU taxes paid documentation and a NOVA."
