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.

strong driver she runs and drives fast and very well, great gearbox with no issue.

Or it can be driven as it is.

The first thing I’ll get to is the asking price. Even if I don’t see a black one very often just about any 911T is going to struggle to sell for $80K when the condition is classified only as “good.” That is especially the case when it’s been repainted as this one has and when that repaint itself is only said to be in decent shape. I’m also not sure why one of the grill driving lights isn’t aligned correctly. And the AC compressor is missing. And there are no records. So those are the negatives and they aren’t minor.
Otherwise, this isn’t a bad looking example and it’s got some nice options, especially the sports seats with what I believe are velour inserts. Those by themselves are pretty great and they are said to be original. Even the paint does show pretty well. For the most part it could make for a nice driver option, it just isn’t going to do that at this price. I suspect it’s value is much closer to $60K than $80K, but once we get the price in line I think it could make some sense. For those, like me, who are fans of black cars and black 911s especially this could make for a nice chance at a driver-quality example of one of these uncommon machines.
