Visit TradeClassics.com to see the full details of the car. https://www.tradeclassics.com/auctions/porsche/1972-porsche-911t-targa/ EXTERIOR The car is finished in black, having been restored at some point in its life. This is confirmed as the Certificate of Authenticity that states the original colour was Signal Yellow/114. Wheels & Tyres The car is currently wearing some cookie cutter wheels which would have been swapped in at some point in the cars life. Bodywork Mark has told us that the bodywork is in good condition, and has not mentioned any rust issues. Paint Again, Mark informs us that the paintwork is good, but in no ways perfect as such. Glass and Trim Glass and trim look good from the images Mark has provided so far, and he has told us that are in good condition. However, the OF door window does have some light scratching visible. INTERIOR The interior is in a matching black colour to the exterior paintwork, and still features the 2+2 seating arrangement. Seats and Carpets The seats are wrapped in black vinyl and have been updated to the Porsche tombstone style seats that were featured on later models. Dashboard Mark has told us that the condition of the dashboard is poor, we will aim to get some pictures of any wear/defects to the dash. Steering Wheel / Gear Stick The steering wheel shows signs of wear, and gear leaver appears to be a non-original example. MECHANICS Mark’s 911T Targa has been upgraded from the stock 2.4L engine that was featured in this model, to the later 2.7L engine with triple carbs. Along with this a sports exhaust has been fitted. Engine and Gearbox Mark tells us that the power unit is in good condition and runs smooth. It starts within a couple of tries, and as with most air-cooled Porsches, there is often a bit of blue smoke on initial start-up. The car features the standard dog leg 5 speed gearbox. Mark tells us that this is in poor condition and changing gears often results in excessive noise and can be hard to get in to second gear. Suspension and Brakes The car drives well from Marks description, as you would expect for a car from the early 70’s, and no issues to report. Electrics and Other All important electrics work with no issue, Mark tells us.
