Viper Green 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe

There’s a reason certain colors persist in Porsche lore and continue to show up as paint-to-sample options many years later. Which of those (typically pastels) is best definitely is a worthy debate. This one makes a compelling argument for its case.

Viper Green is one of those early pastels. It has gone through some changes in its precise shade and at one point even was a metallic rather than the more traditional non-metallic pastel. Here, on this 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe with just 24,613 miles, it shows the allure of this color in particular and these pastels in general about as well as I could imagine the color doing so. It shows such wonderful brightness and depth to its green that there’s little I can say to convince you of its appeal. Like any very bright color you’ll like it or you won’t, but generally these colors tend to transcend to some degree and garner appreciation from a wide array of buyers.

1970 Porsche 911T Targa

Today and tomorrow I’ve got a couple cars to post that are quite a bit less pristine than what I typically like to feature. Both will need some work, but each provides a nice base with which to begin that work. And, more importantly, both are interesting enough that there should be a desire from some to return them to their full glory.

I’ll begin with this one: a Signal Orange 1970 Porsche 911T Targa, located in California, with 126,868 miles on it. This one is all about the color as it’s one of the best on an early 911. That it’s a 911T in need of work also should mean that the selling price falls very much on the reasonable side of the spectrum. At least, it should. Will it?

Double Take: Albert Blue 1970 Porsche 911T – Coupe or Targa?

Believe it or not it’s been a few months since I featured a long-hood 911. I guess there haven’t been many lately to really grab my attention. So why not double up with two? Albert Blue is a really nice non-metallic blue that was available on these early 911s and as it happens there are two available right now, both from the same model year and same 911 model. But one is a Coupe and the other a Targa. So if you like the color, now you just have to pick your body style!

Let’s start with the Coupe: a 1970 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in Alabama, with 69,814 miles on it. It’s been fully restored, is numbers matching, and looks great.

Signal Yellow 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe

I imagine if someone were to search these pages for my favorite Porsche color you’d find a number of times I called different ones my favorite. Some of that might be in regard to a particular model and how certain colors look better than others, but mostly it’s simply that I like a lot of these very much! Here is another one, but it’s one I forget about because I come across it so rarely. Signal Yellow: when in good condition the color simply is stunning. The subtle orange hues serve to suppress the brightness of the yellow just enough that it isn’t blinding all while retaining the color’s vibrancy. Combined with the various black and chrome trim pieces of a long-hood 911 only accentuates the best aspects of the color all the more. It’s great.

Here we see Signal Yellow on a really nice looking restored 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in southern California, with a reported 90,000 miles on it.

Now available from CPR Classic is this lovely 1973 911T painted in its factory original Signal Yellow over a black with hounds tooth interior. The car is a completely numbers matching example that retains all of its original panels and original undercoating.

The paint is in excellent condition, and the cars bright work is in very nice shape as well. The interior is in lovely shape with as new carpet, headliner and dash. The sport seats that are currently installed are aftermarket, however we have the correct standard seats with hounds tooth inserts as well if the buyer prefers.

Mechanically the car is outstanding. The car drives incredibly tight and corners well.

1971 Porsche 911T Targa

I suppose this could serve as a nice complement to the Irish Green 911T I featured last week. In many ways this Burgundy 1971 Porsche 911T Targa is similar, though its open roof does provide a significant departure from that Coupe. For Targa fans this could make for a nice alternative. I’ve been seeing a decent number of the 911T come up in interesting colors and good condition. Given its entry-level nature that shouldn’t surprise us in some ways as we always see them more often than the higher-market E and S, but entry-level cars aren’t always preserved as well so it is still nice to continue coming across nice examples. I think this one checks all of those boxes. The Burgundy exterior isn’t too common and while it won’t excite or attract attention the way some of the pastels would, it is a very pretty color and shows quite well with the chrome accents of the long-hood 911 and the Targa roll hoop. For attractive open-top motoring, we could certainly do far worse.

CPR is offering this very delightful 1971 Porsche 911T. It was originally purchased in California and has been retained in the original owner’s family up until just a few years ago, and retains its original California blue license plates. This T is numbers matching with color exterior and interior to the factory certificate of authenticity. The exterior has received just one repaint years ago and is in very nice condition today. The car’s gaps are beautiful The engine is recently overhauled and is in excellent running order. The car drivers incredibly tight and is an all around great driver quality example that can be driven and enjoyed worry free, while still more than nice enough to take to shows.

1971 Porsche 911T Coupe

A couple weeks ago I featured a 1965 Porsche 911 that sported a wonderful Irish Green exterior. Given that it was such an early model the price was understandably very high. In this case, its value was being driven more by its early date than by its color and as such it wouldn’t really make for the ideal option for someone whose priority was to find an early 911 in such a color. The car we see here, however, an Irish Green 1971 Porsche 911T Coupe, should fit that bill much better. Here the color will be just as likely to drive the value upward as most other aspects, and given that it’s the entry-level 911T there really isn’t any reason to expect its value to get out of hand. All together it could make for a very nice option for those with a desire for Irish Green.

1969 Porsche 911T – Carrera RS Tribute

There is something to be said for simplicity; for not being over the top. This is especially the case when the car you are attempting to pay homage to is itself intended to prioritize a certain level of simplicity (though with a heavy dose of mechanical sophistication). Over the top certainly has its place. Just take a look at one of Singer’s builds, they are over the top in about the best possible way. Everything works together though and the total is worth all of that effort. This car, originally a 1969 Porsche 911T that is now built as a tribute to the venerable 1973 911 Carrera RS, is not over the top. The interior especially is spartan, it is simple. It is befitting of the RS to which it pays tribute. That’s why I like it. It really looks great!

And because it’s orange…I also like it because it’s orange.

1973 Porsche 911T Coupe

I like black cars. I even happen to own one. They aren’t necessarily my favorite color of car, but they do possess an allure that other colors can’t match when the conditions are right. Rarer colors are, no doubt, more interesting, but interesting does not always mean better and rarer definitely doesn’t always mean better. There are plenty of colors that are rare for a reason. But what about when black itself seemingly is rare? Well then we might have something that becomes a little more interesting.

I don’t know what the production numbers are for the various colors available on the long-hood 911, but anecdotally a black one is rare. I just don’t see them very often. Maybe that’s a product of what is available now rather than what was originally available, but on the current market that comes to about the same thing. And because I don’t see them often they do attract extra notice from me when I do see one. So that helps explain my interest in this Black on Black 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in California, with a reported 53K miles on it.

Conda Green 1971 Porsche 911T Karmann Coupe with 1,354 miles

A couple weeks back I featured a Conda Green 911E Coupe that was higher mileage but presented well and appeared to have a well documented history. Here we have another early 911 in that great Conda Green exterior, but the rest of it is in stark contrast to my previous feature. First, the mileage is incredibly low: a reported 1,354 miles. Second, other than the CoA we are provided no other documentation or information about this 911’s history. Finally, we see no pictures of the interior so that portion of the car remains a mystery. It looks really good, but from there we’ll need to start digging.

Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer. Anyone interested in seeing the car in person, please message me.

Obviously priority 1 here is to try and verify the mileage. If this is the true mileage and that can be verified, then we’re looking at a seriously rare early 911. The second question involves the engine. The ad makes no mention of this, but even though the seller has chosen not to show any pictures of the interior he has chosen to show us a picture of a sticker. That’s odd. Except that sticker is an engine labeled 2.5. Is the engine in this 911 a 2.5 liter, rather than the standard 2.2?…

1972 Porsche 911R Tribute

We feature a good number of these 911 tributes and backdates. Whether they are tributes to the original Carrera RS, to the 1967 911R like the one we see here, or just built by someone who prefers long-hood design, many of the basic principles and ideals behind them are pretty similar. And they can be very difficult to value. We wanted to take a look at this one precisely to help us gauge that value. This 911 is up for auction with no reserve so it should show us what the market thinks of these cars. Or at least what it thinks of this one. While the proverbial devil is in the details with any of these builds this one strikes me as falling within a middle ground and I think that makes it particularly useful for trying to understand value. It doesn’t appear to be the most well executed or thorough build, but you can see that a good deal of work has gone in to building this 911R tribute and there are a lot of nice touches presented throughout. Bidding right now sits at $50K.
