THIS 911 2.2T
Offered here is a well-equipped U.S.-specification 1971 911 T Coupe. It was ordered from the factory with many desirable options, including rare forged aluminium Fuchs alloy wheels ( so called deep 6’s), front and rear anti-roll bars & tinted glass. It also features what Porsche called the “Comfort Equipment,” an all-encompassing term that included a full set of 911 S instruments, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, velour carpeting, aluminum trim on the door sills and rocker panels, as well as 911 S rubber trim on the bumpers and rocker decos and rubber bumperettes. The Porsche name and model trim on the engine lid were gold-plated. Finally, the car was finished in Special Order 8383, Green Metallic, with a black leatherette interior.
This very attractive 911 T Coupe was completed on May, 1, 1970, and shipped to a dealer in California. There are numerous USA invoices and documents on file.
Eventually this handsome 911 found its way to Europe in 2014, where it received a new paint job and the shell was repainted in its original Green Metallic. All of the body panels and floors seem to be original. Meanwhile the tachometer was converted to kilometres. On the inside it still retains its original coco mats.
The car still retains its matching number engine and original color combination. Transmission number wasn’t specified by Porsche so can’t be verified but is of the correct type and year so we have every right to assume this also is the original gearbox. The heat exchangers were recently replaced by stainless steel ones.
This beautiful Porsche is supplied with its original owner’s manual, its original pair of keys, its original spare wheel, and a file of service invoices. This classic 911 is already a sought-after collectible, and it is ready to provide its next owner with many more years of enjoyable driving.
The car currently has a Belgian registratrion.
The 1970 911
125 bhp, 2,195 cc SOHC air-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with two Weber carburetors, five-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and front and rear disc brakes. Wheelbase: 89.4 in.
The year 1969 marked major changes in Porsche’s chassis design and model lineup. The wheelbases of its 911 and 912 series cars were lengthened by 2.4 inches, which greatly improved drivability. The front fenders and rear-quarter wheel openings were flared slightly to accommodate wider wheels and tires. The heating and ventilating systems were upgraded from the previous year’s model, along with numerous other interior and exterior details. For the 1970 and 1971 C- and D-Series, engine displacement was increased to 2.2 liters across the range, which now included the base model 911 T, the last 911 to carry carburetors. The T, E, and S models were available in coupe or Targa configuration, and a long list of extra-cost optional equipment was also available.
