Car Details

The Porsche 911T Targa, along with its coupe sibling, continued as an entry level 911 variant for 1972 and 1973. As with the E and S variants, Porsche would upgrade the 911T to a new, larger 2,341 cc (2.3 L) engine, commonly known as the "2.4 L" engine. With the power and torque increase, the 2.4-liter cars also got the newer and stronger transmission, identified as the 915 gearbox. In early 1973, US-spec 911T's, often referred to with the 1973.5 model year or with a 911 T/E designation, were equipped with Bosch CIS fuel injection on the Type 911/91 engine (Type 911/96 with Sportomatic). This powertrain combination preserved the power output of the US-spec version at 140 hp, but with lower emissions. For model year 1974 the "T" designation was dropped and the model was replaced with the 2.7L 911 Targa base model. This car came to The Wilson Collection in 2011 from one prior owner and went through a complete restoration to bring it back to its original luster.
