Classic color combinations manage to find a place in our consciousness where they stay firmly rooted so as to capture our attention at every appearance. Though the combination we see here probably would best be known through the British automobile industry, under the guise of British Racing Green, it still manages to possess the same allure when attached to a German marque. The combination of a non-metallic Green over a Tan interior is one I particularly enjoy and one which we have seen many times over the years. For Porsche, the color of choice in its early days was Irish Green and it looks particularly good here on a long-hood 911. However, classic or not, green Porsches tend to see less demand. That may not necessarily apply as readily to Irish Green since it’s fairly well regarded, but in general fans of a green Porsche can many times get them at a reduced price. The love simply isn’t always there. Whether that will be the case here, we’ll have to see with this Irish Green 1972 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in Connecticut, with 106K miles on it.

1972 Porsche 911 T Coupe Irish Green with Tan interior 106,000 miles. Original Mechanical Fuel Injection. Very clean rust free example that shows very nicely except for some minor flaws in the paint and wear on the drivers side floor carpet. The car runs very well and feels great on the road.
Car is located in the northwestern corner of Connecticut about 75 miles north of New York City. If you have questions you can reach me at 860-350-1140. I have a page with many highly detailed photos of the car. Go to forzamotorsports with the usual com ending. International buyers welcome. I can help set up shipping to any part of the world but you must pay for it. Thank you for looking at my listing.

The sharp contrast between exterior and interior really presents well here and serves to provide a very natural and earthy environment surrounding this 911. The seats perhaps aren’t as crisp as we might like, but overall there isn’t a ton to nit-pick. This appears to be a well-used example that has been shown a good refreshing and a good deal of care. We aren’t offered a ton of history so some background research may be in order, but it is said to be wearing its original colors. Bidding now sits in fairly reasonable territory for a 911T, coming in at just over $50K. The reserve is unmet and we may not see bids rise too much more, but this remains a very pretty combination that I imagine will attract some interest.

    Nice looking car. I wish the seller would be a bit more detailed then a few lines as I’m guessing not everyone is ready to jump on a plane to CT.

    Regarding your comment on green: “However, classic or not, green Porsches tend to see less demand. That may not necessarily apply as readily to Irish Green since it’s fairly well regarded”

    I would politely disagree. It seems like greens are some of the hottest colors on the long hood spectrum…especially ones like Viper or Conda.

    I’ve found that the least desirable colors are the burgundy and red 911s.

    Just my $0.02 😉

    Great write up as usual by the German Cars for Sale blog peeps…thanks.

    Paul, you may be right about green on the long hoods. Certainly the pastel greens tend to do very well. I was thinking more about many of the later 911 models where greens don’t tend to do as well, but I must admit many of those greens have moved away from the brighter colors that have been in demand. It’s definitely interesting to see how these color trends change.

    Thanks for reading!
