For any buyer hoping to own a long-hood 911 for the lowest cost there are two primary options (excluding the option of buying a car in serious need of restoration). The first is to forgo the plan of getting a 911 at all and find an excellent 912 instead. Same basic design and layout, but with a flat-4 rather than a flat-6. The other option is to spend a bit more money and find a well maintained 911T. The 911T effectively became Porsche’s entry-level model once 912 production was ceased and both models offered similar levels of performance and refinement, especially when viewed through the lens of a modern automobile. For the 1970 and 1971 model years the 911 featured a 2.2 liter flat-6 engine delivering power to the rear wheels via a standard 4-speed or optional 5-speed manual transmission. The example featured here in a very period-correct Olive Green is a 1971 Porsche 911 T, located in Miami, with the more desirable 5-speed manual transmission.

In the â€œHagerty Vehicle Conditionâ€ scale this is in my opinion a 1.7
This is obviously an old car and Issues will come up over time like with any +10 year vehicle. Excellent driver car for daily use.
I reserve the right to end this listing at anytime should the vehicle no longer be available for sale.
As the entry-level 911, the 911T can typically be had at a fairly substantial discount relative to its more powerful siblings the 911E and, especially, the 911S. Thus, while no early 911 is exactly cheap, driver-quality examples of the 911T provide the easiest avenue for any buyer who wishes to drive a vintage 911 without too much concern over the effect on the car’s value. The mileage listed for this car is presumably the number of miles since the engine was rebuilt, but I suspect most buyers would be interested in a few more details regarding the total mileage of the car. As such, bidding here has been quite retrained and judging by the seller’s statement about the Hagerty rating we are probably far from meeting the reserve. Ultimately, I think more information is going to be needed, but for a numbers-matching car in a color that we really don’t come across very often, this could make for an excellent opportunity.
