The 2.2-liter 911 T presented here was built in June 1971, finished in Bahia Red and equipped with Fuchs alloy wheels, Pirelli tires, and the desirable Comfort Equipment package, which included velour carpeting, gold emblems, aluminum doorsills, chrome rocker panels, and a leather-covered steering wheel, along with “S” trim and instrumentation.

Originally retailed through Commonwealth Porsche-Audi in Boston, this 911 was sold new to Henry Faulkner who cherished it for 48 years. Throughout his ownership, Mr. Faulkner kept meticulous records, which confirm the car’s current mileage – under 66,000 – as original. After purchasing the 911 in 2019, the second owner, Porsche specialist Naples Classic Car, performed a sympathetic re-commissioning that addressed the mechanical systems, while carefully preserving original details. Nearly $32,000 was invested during this five-month process, as documented by an invoice on file.

Under the current ownership, this 911 has been professionally serviced and detailed, and recently had a technical inspection carried out by an authorized Porsche Classic partner. The accompanying Technical Certificate confirms that both the engine and transaxle are the correct matching-number components. The consignor also reports that the 911 retains the majority of its factory finishes and performs with the irreplaceable character of a well-maintained, unrestored Porsche. Recent compression and paint meter readings are included in the car’s file and available for review.

Remarkably, the original window sticker, Bill of Sale, and comprehensive records (from 1971 through 2020) accompany the car in an impressive history file. Additionally, the Porsche is offered with its original owner’s manual, service/warranty booklet, Blaupunkt radio manuals, antenna key, jack, tool kit, and date-coded spare, as well as the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate and Certificate of Authenticity.

Surely one of the finest 911 Ts available, this Porsche is worthy of serious consideration.
