In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Porsche improved the power and performance of its 911 with engine-displacement increases and the adoption of Bosch fuel injection as major factors. The 911 “S” and “E” variations may have carried higher power ratings, but the 911 T (Touring) garnered praise from road testers.
This 1973 Porsche 911 T was purchased new via Bob Hagestad Porsche-Audi of Denver, Colorado, and, according to the accompanying window sticker, carried a lofty retail price of nearly $10,285. Factory-finished in Gold Metallic with black upholstery, it was well equipped with options, including 15x6" forged alloy wheels, a retractable radio antenna, full tinted glass, and an electric sunroof. The first owner retained the Porsche through the 1990s, including a period of storage prior to the second, and current, owner’s acquisition in 2010. Between 2012 and 2013, the 911 T was stripped and repainted at SVE Autobody of Broomfield, Colorado, and had its seats reupholstered in black leather by Classic Restoration in Englewood, Colorado. Sound, well maintained, and never requiring extensive restoration, this highly desirable 911 T clearly benefits from fastidious long-term care. This Porsche is reported by the consignor to be a very well-sorted car that delivers an outstanding experience with a tight feel and strong power and, for 911 devotees, is an opportunity not to be missed.
