Item Description: Translate description
  • US-supplied, left-hand drive, 1970 2.2-litre 911T

  • Beautiful in its original colour of Irish Green over a tan leatherette interior

  • Matching numbers with its original engine and gearbox

  • Supplied with a UK V5c, its previous State of Indiana Title and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity

 

Introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show the basic Porsche 911 design would run virtually unchanged for twenty-nine years. Ferdinand Porsche had been working on the design since the late fifties as a better performing replacement for the 356. Today his design still underpins the production of Porsche AG of Stuttgart. Before long the merits of using the Porsche 911 in competitive motorsport became apparent and history records it as one of the most successful campaigners of all time. From the 24 Hours of Le Mans to grass-roots motorsport, the 911 was simply the car to have.  For 1970, the 'C-Series' 911 was introduced with a larger bore to give a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a 'T'. Alterations to the suspension geometry improved the handling and added a bit more weight to the steering feel. The standard Fuchs alloy wheels gained a bit of girth and were now 6 inches wide.

Offered here is a left-hand drive Porsche 911T 2.2 delivered to it first owner in the United States in 1970. The car is finished in its original colours and arguably one of the most beautiful colour combinations of Irish Green over a Tan leatherette interior. Options at the time included ‘comfort equipment’ and a tinted windshield.

The car was imported into the UK in 2017 and registered with the DVLA obtaining a UK V5c. Most recently the body was attended to, with new floors and a full repaint in its original colour. At the same time, the interior was smartened up with new upholstery and the engine received a tune-up. The Fuchs wheels are wearing a set of new tyres giving it the classic Porsche stance. Included in the sale is the owner’s manual, jack and spare tyre along with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

Early 911s possess a certain purity of line, particularly in bright colours, a complete world away from the aerodynamic extravagances of the eighties and nineties, and in terms of style, it's the early cars that engender the most appreciative glances. A well set-up and maintained 911T, 'E' or 'S' driven with an intelligent right foot will provide some of the most quintessentially rewarding driving experiences you have ever had, and even the 125bhp 911T, will leave you with a serious grin on your face!
