In the early seventies, Porsche were in a "rich vein" of competition success.  It`s not surprising that the 2.4 litre 911 variants of that time are considered a reflection of that engineering prowess. Race input had resulted in revised suspension pick-up points and Koni dampers enhancing the 911.  Power from the 2.4 fuel injected unit resulted in a wonderful free revving engine. The larger capacity engine gave the 911 that much more drivability in the lower rev range. The 915 5-speed gearbox completed the package. Steve McQueen helped to immortalise the 911 'S' in a "reflective moment" at the Sarthe in the film "Le Mans".
This 1972 Porsche 911 2.4 T is finished in its original colour combination of Light Yellow with black interior and features Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection, as seen on the E,S and RS models from the same era. The certificate of authenticity confirms that the engine is the original and states the car was sold with US equipment of light metallic wheels, stabilisers, comfort equipment, tinted glass and Dunlop tyres. Supplied with the original service book and handbook, this 911 Targa was brought over to the UK last year and has all EU taxes paid. Offered with a fresh MoT certificate, this car represents classic 911 ownership for half the price of a brand new Targa model.
