THE PORSCHE 911
Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These "giant killers" could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and solidified their dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts.
Starting in 1964, with the original 911, Porsche has produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sports cars that could compete with much more powerful cars, thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling, offering a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car.
1969 ushered in the first major changes to the iconic Porsche 911. Retaining the unique and successful rear engine layout as well as the same basic styling, the majority of the changes to the 911 were internal. Dimensionally, the rear track and wheelbase grew, while the overall length stayed the same as in the earlier cars. Mechanical fuel injection debuted this year as well as in top-of-the-line 911S and the new 911E, and later in the 2.4-Liter 911T, or Touring. 911E received its name from Einspritzung, the German term for injection. Engine size increased from 2.0-Liters to 2.2-Liters, and finally in 1972, to 2.4-Liters, making it the final and fully evolved version of the original long-hood 911 model, arguably the most collectible version today.
Porsche added an open-top variant to the 911 model range for 1967, featuring a stainless steel-clad roll bar and removable roof panel. Commemorating Porsche's successive wins at the famous Sicilian Road Race, the new model was termed "Targa", coined by other manufacturers since, to describe this body configuration. The new 911 Targa was as close as Porsche came to 'wind in the hair' 911 motoring until the introduction of a full Cabriolet in the early 1980s.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This stunning end-of-run, long hood 911T 2.4 coupe, presented here in a Chartreuse color, also called Lime Green over Black interior. This color is one of the rarest known. We believe approximately only 10 were built in the Chartreuse color.
Per Certificate of Authenticity, the car was also highly optioned, with US equipment, Light metal wheels (6jx15), Koni Shocks, Stabilizers (F/R), manual antenna, loudspeaker & noise suppression, comfort equipment, Tinted Glass all around, and Pirelli tires.
The car was delivered to and stayed in California most of its life with the same family, until it was found and bought by a Porsche specialist in 2017, in Costa Mesa. The car was in incredibly well-preserved and very original condition, showing only 08930 miles on the odometer, retaining the original floors, seats, interior, and carpets, even with some original paints, and complete with tool kit, jack, spare tire, service book, and owner's manual. The car was then sold into the Netherlands, to a Porsche enthusiast, who decided to go through a full restoration and bring this car back to its best.
