1973 Porsche 911T

With the discontinuation of the four cylinder 912 in 1970, Porsche was in need of an entry level 911. The 911T, introduced in 1967, effectively filled this gap. In 1971, the engine in the T was enlarged, along with the rest of the 911 range, to 2.4 liters, providing 130 horsepower in “T” form. Also new, much to the chagrin of some involved in competition, was a new gearbox with a traditional H pattern in place of the dogleg first gear arrangement in models prior. This 911T for sale in California is said to be an original car, owned by the original owner for 28 years and now has showing just under 66,000 miles on the clock.

This car has been extremely fun to own, looks great, has bright chrome and still turns a few heads around town. The Porsche has been repainted once as far as I can tell by others. Not the best job, certainly not a quality show car paint finish. It’s a good driver quality paint job that is starting to show its age. Meaning, paint chips, dull spots and one area of cracking. The rear license plate panel needs some attention as well.

Bottom edges of rocker panels need some cosmetic attention, although very solid (see second to last photo). A high quality paint job would make the car absolutely beautiful! The Porsche also has dash cap over the original dash. I have never removed it so I do not know what condition the dash is in. The original Porsche clock is not working as is true with most of these clocks. The rubber inserts on all of the bumpers could be replaced. The front and rear windshields could use new rubber seals. Although not leaking, the previous owner added clear silicone to the top of the front windshield seal.

Thank you for looking at my Porsche, feel free to ask as many questions as you feel necessary. I am happy to help assist you with the auto transport experience.

This isn’t a bad example of a 911T, but a few things hold it back. First, if I was selling this car, I would have made it a point to get the authenticity certificate from Porsche. If you are selling the car as original, I wouldn’t let the buyer assume anything. This document is a must have in this case. Second, it’s not exactly original if it has had a respray and interior refurbish. But, there may be an upside to that because if this was an original paint/interior car, prospective buyers would have been less apt to mess with the patina.

    Well……..seems like a solid “survivor”……….sort of…….Lots of personal taste changes from the interior outward. Owner seems like a straight ahead seller…….
    Important information such as whether the chain tensioners have been updated to Carrera is lacking, and strange that seller hasnt gone to the trouble to authenticate the originality of the drive train with a COA from Porsche. Kind of step one.
    That said I have an “almost” original ’70 911T sunroof with dealer installed Coolaire a/c and will be interested to see where this goes.
