1973 Porsche 911 T Restored by the Factory at Porsche Classic Workshop

This 1973 Porsche 911 T is the subject of a full nut and bolt restoration by the Porsche factory’s restoration center in Germany. Porsche Classic Workshop bought the basket-case 911T off of eBay, and then renovated it at their Freiberg/Neckar facility located near their main plant in Zuffenhausen. They rebuilt the classic car over a year’s time by none other than some of the very factory workers who had assembled it 37 years prior, and then raffled it off at a 2011 Porsche Club of America event in Savannah, Georgia. Perhaps the most epic raffle drawing prize ever? We think so. Early, long-hood Porsche 911 values have absolutely skyrocketed in recent years, which can be attributed to their simple, lightweight engineering, defining what enthusiasts worldwide consider to be a true sports car when compared to today’s much larger, bloated, and electronics-laden machines. Hagerty Insurance’s Price Guide Report rates top-of-the-market, Condition 1 T’s at a recent high of $60,300. We wouldn’t be surprised if this particular car could have exceeded that number if it had been auctioned in Monterey, rather than raffled off in Savannah. The 911 T has an air-cooled flat-six engine with a displacement of 2.4 liters, producing 140 hp at 5,600 […]

Porsche 911T 2.0 v 2.4: the people’s 911

When three generations of Porsche 911S cars assembled for our issue 120 cover, their combined worth totalled, at that time, just over the £500,000 mark. Such is the value of those esteemed ‘Super’ 911s that for the price of just one, you could feasibly buy a 2.0, 2.2 and a 2.4-litre Porsche 911T.

However, while the 911S was always destined to become an icon, the humble 911T is no less important to the legacy of Butzi Porsche’s legendary flat-six sports car.

Between 1967 and 1973, Zuffenhausen – along with independent plant partner Karmann – produced 38,333 Porsche 911Ts, over double the number of any other 911 model during the same period.

In fact, over those six years, the 911T outsold every other 911 variant combined. The proliferation of 911Ts is no doubt the biggest factor in their current values. However, while the ‘Touring’ may not be destined to set any outright auction records any time soon, its sales success in the 1960s and ’70s guarantees its place as one of the most popular classic 911s.

The T’s journey starts in 1967 with the introduction of the ‘A’ Series of 911. Up until this point, the 911 range had been remarkably simple: one model developing 130 horsepower, later joined by the 160-horsepower 911S at the tail end of 1966.

For the 1967 model year though, Porsche would expand the line-up to three cars. The ‘911’ was replaced with the 911L, a car bookended by the S and the new 911T, a 110-horsepower foundation to the neunelfer range.

Based on the famous short-wheelbase platform, the ‘A’ Series 911T featured a down-tuned version of the 91L’s 2.0-litre engine. To keep costs down, this 901/03 flat six utilised cast iron cylinders, lower compression pistons (yielding an 8.6:1 compression ratio) and a different crank design.

The weight-bearing camshafts were revised to give less lift to the 42-millimetre intake and 38-millimetre exhaust valves while the twin Weber 40IDT3C carburettors featured a simpler design than the 40IDA and 40IDS units found on the 911L and 911S respectively.
