Let’s rewind to 1971, specifically June 18th, when our gorgeous 1971 Porsche 911 T Targa first hit the road. Since then, it’s only racked up a modest 54173 kilometers, keeping that low mileage charm intact. The eye-catching Blue Orange color it was born with adds a touch of class that you just can’t miss.
Beneath the hood, this beauty boasts a strong 125 horsepower air-cooled 6-cylinder boxer engine, known as the 911/03 engine type. Turning the key brings the engine to life smoothly and effortlessly. But there’s more to it – The power was upgraded by switching out the old Zenith carburetors for three sets of Weber carburetors. This means you’ll enjoy a small horsepower boost, promising an exciting ride every time you hit the gas. But that’s not the end of the story. This car has had some serious work done to make it not only a head-turner but also a top-notch performer. The previous owner rolled up their sleeves in key areas: the gearbox got a full makeover, the clutch got a fresh start, and a brand-new exhaust system with updated heat exchangers was fitted with precision. And wait, there’s more – the four-disc brake system got a complete overhaul and is now in fantastic shape. Oh, and don’t forget about the suspension – it’s been thoroughly revamped and is in its prime. All these careful efforts come together to deliver a smooth and exhilarating driving experience.
Inside, you’ll step into a blast from the past (following the original specs). The seats have been given a fresh coat of upholstery and are in superb condition. Everything’s shipshape – the panels are as straight as an arrow, and even the door pockets are still in perfect working order. As a cherry on top, it’s been treated to a period-correct Blaupunkt radio that’ll take you back in time while enjoying today’s tunes.
This is the perfect car for the ultimate driving experience, and it’s ready to conquer countless more kilometers on the road. Available now at Rock ‘N Roll Classics.
