The basic Porsche 911 design has been in constant production since its introduction in 1963. Only in 1998 did the air-cooled six cylinder engine revert to water cooling. Throughout its life the 911 has been subject to engine capacity increases and upgrades to satisfy an eager following. At the beginning of the 1970's the 911 carried on as a mainstay of Porsche production and it would underpin an incredible period of motorsport competition. Following rule changes in sportscar racing, the Porsche 917 was no longer eligible and Porsche switched to GT racing using the 911 as a production basis. The introduction of the 911 2.7 RS heralded the beginning of a remarkable run in competitions worldwide. An evolution, the 911 Carrera RSR won the Daytona 24 Hours virtually out of the box in 1973 for the Brumos Porsche Team against World Sports Car Prototypes. In the same year an RSR won the Targa Florio driven by Herbert Muller and Gijs van Lennep. In 1971 the D-Series was introduced and Porsche paid more attention to galvanising body parts. 1972 would be the last year of 2.2 litre engines.

This original left-hand drive imported 911T 2.2 Targa is finished in deep red with black leather interior. A highly original example, it would not take much to transform this car into a concours contender. This Targa has been maintained to a high standard by all previous owners, with bills and receipts from marque specialists such as PIE Performance, Prill and Maxted-Page since the car was imported in 2005. The MoT test certificates shows that the car has covered only 8,000 miles since being in the UK and a believed genuine 65,000 miles in total. The current owner has more recently carried out a service, brake overhaul and some bodywork maintenance using official Porsche Centre parts.
