Manufactured by Dr Ing h c F Porsche AG in Stuttgart, chassis number 9113501561 was completed in May 1973 to C16 UK RHD specifications, with original options listed as Bahia Red exterior and Black Leatherette with Corduroy inlays for the interior.  First sold on 1 June 1973, there have been nine former keepers recorded by the DVLA since then.

It was bought at auction by regarded Porsche specialists Canford Classics at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2004 and subsequently enjoyed a complete, bare-metal restoration, before being sold to the present owner in 2017.

The bodywork was fully dismantled, repaired and re-painted in its original Bahia Red factory colour whilst exterior trim was refurbished and replaced with original parts as required. The car’s interior was also returned to its factory finish, featuring D’Ieser replica Recaro seats and modern, retro Blaupunkt radio with MP3 connectivity.

Steering and suspension were also both fully refreshed, along with the ‘S’ braking system and Bilstein rear and Koni front shock absorbers.  The original 915 gearbox was rebuilt and an limited slip differential was fitted, whilst the original engine was bored out to an increased capacity of 2.8-litres with modern cams and refurbished triple-choke Weber carburettors.

Although marketed as the cheaper, lower power and specification model from the bottom of the 911 range, the T is far from the poor relation. It is a super, everyday car in its own right, more than holding its own against its more expensive relatives.

Our thoughts

Although marketed as the cheaper, lower power and specification model from the bottom of the 911 range, the T is far from the poor relation. It is a super, everyday car in its own right, more than holding its own against its more expensive relatives.

Our matching numbers 73T in bright Bahia Red with Black leatherette/corduroy interior is a fine example, delivering those expected characteristics and more. The previous owner has taken great care throughout its recent restoration to not only produce a sympathetic and authentic finish but also shrewdly adapted the car for modern convenience, as well as upgrading the engine for a much-improved power output of over 200bhp.

The result is an extremely tidy and attractive car that performs above expectations on the road. One of the most fun 911s that we have driven in recent times, it ‘goes like hell’ and handles tidily as well. As such, it represents great value to the Porsche enthusiast looking fir an accessible, usable, quick classic 911.
