Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement.
In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3-litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph.
A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements: to 2.2-litres. The S's power output then was 180bhp, increasing to 190bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-liter engine for 1972.
Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973.
The 911 T on offer today is fitted by a powerful 911 2.4 S engine. The amazing look of this car is like the RSR of 1973. This incredible car was used in the main historic rally meetings in Tuscany, and comes to auction with its Italian registration papers and the ASI certificate.
