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, and 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-root motorsport, the 911 offered reliable performance in many guises.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 suspension points improved the handling and gave the steering a better on-centre feel.Offered for sale is this beautiful, non-sunroof, 911T in the very rare colour ( 8383 paint code) known as 'Factory Green Metallic'. The car was treated to a 'windows out' respray within the last year and all the relevant rubbers and seals were replaced at the same time as were the door cards and dash top. The current vendor has owned this 911T for 10 years now, and the previous owner for 10 years prior to this. The engine was rebuilt some 15 years ago and most certainly still feels strong and pulls well today. The car has recently benefitted from a full service and has been carefully gone through to ensure it performs at its best. The period Fuchs alloys with the correct tyres finish this car off perfectly and this classic, early seventies, 911 in this gorgeous shade of green just needs viewing to appreciate its full potential.
