1973 Porsche Targa 911 T Description

In 1973 Porsche offered three 911 variants: the 911T the 911E and the 911S. The 911T was traditionally equipped with carburetors. However in mid 1973 Porsche converted the car to Bosche's new fuel injection system named K-Jetronic a/k/a CIS (continious injection system). This variant of the 911 - the 1973.5 911T with CIS was produced in very low numbers. Less than 600 Targas were built. This model was described by Peter Zimmerman as follows:"... Finally! Porsche builds their first '10'! This is the one model that deserves its own chapter. ... All things considered this is the smoothest most pleasant of all early 911s to be built to date to drive. The engine at all RPM levels is responsive and has sufficient torque to allow use at very low engine speeds. ... The 2.4 liter displacement engine delivers enough horsepower and torque to enjoy in almost any driving situation. ... the folks at the Porsche factory knew they were building really special models."The addition of CIS boosted the car's base horsepower from 130 to 148 and made it competitive with the higher priced 911E. Interestingly the addition of CIS gave the car an impressive fuel economy of roughly 32 mpg. This is a one owner fully documented numbers matching 911 T Targa. It was delivered at the factory as European delivery to a long time member of the Chicago region Porsche Club. The car was parked sometime in 2001 and sat in a garage until it was discovered in 2013. The car retains its original Light Yellow #117 paint and except for the carpeting which is new the interior is all original including the dash which is perfect. This car has never been in any accidents or had any rust repair. All the body panels floors rockers trim and glass etc. is original. The engine was completely overhauled with new bearings rings chains tensioners guides gaskets etc. The transmission was also overhauled and the clutch replaced. This is very well optioned Targa with 911 S trim Fuchs wheels front and rear sway bars Koni shocks and aluminum brake calipers. This early 911 long hood is in exceptional condition.
