2,341 cc air-cooled, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, Bosch mechanical fuel injection, 140 HP at 5,600 RPM, five-speed manual gearbox in rear transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes; wheelbase: 89.3"


Continuing their incomparable tradition for excellence, Porsche’s engineers relentlessly developed and improved the 911 from launch, ensuring its uncanny ability to adapt to the changing demands of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Collectively, the E- and F-Series 911 models of 1972 and 1973 are a perfect case in point as the ultimate expression of the “long hood, small bumper” models that first appeared for 1969 and marked the first major update of the 911. While Detroit’s “Big Three” and Porsche’s European rivals struggled to comply with tighter U.S. emissions regulations, the wizards at Zuffenhausen broadened the 911’s power curve and increased torque. Mechanical fuel injection was added in 1972 for examples of the 911T destined for the United States and certain Asian markets. In addition to the heightened performance offered by all the 2.4-litre cars of 1972-1973, they were further upgraded with the availability of the stronger ‘Type 915’ gearbox derived from Porsche’s mighty 908 racing cars. Many other detail refinements addressed the 911’s chassis, exterior, and mechanical systems. In short, these cars remain highly collectible – and enjoyable on all counts.

Numbered 9113101973, this 911T was completed in February 1973 and sold new on October 23, 1973 to Mr. and Mrs. Hickstein of Milwaukee, Wisconsin via Mossner Porsche-Audi, as documented in the vehicle's original Maintenance Record booklet and accompanying warranty card. Delivered in Bahia Red paint over black leatherette upholstery, options included U.S. equipment and tinted glass all-around. The 911 later relocated to Missouri, where it resided until 2014, when it changed hands to its most recent caretaker in Texas. Between the Maintenance Book/Warranty Voucher and succeeding invoices, the Porsche's previous owner chronicled many of the car's services throughout the years; at the time of cataloguing, approximately 77,500 miles have been traveled. On file is an impressive service and mileage log and years of maintenance records including the engine rebuild performed in late 2009.

Still wearing its correct-as-delivered livery, the car received a cosmetic freshening several years ago, which continues to present very well, and the powertrain remains its original numbers-matching CIS-injected 2.4L engine and five-speed manual gearbox. After several years of joyful driving, a thorough mechanical inspection and restoration was commissioned, including an engine rebuild and reseal, new fluids and Porsche oil filter, CIS injection refurbishment, clutch assembly, shifter bushings, new brake and ignition components, authentic Porsche Moll batteries, and fitment of five new and period-correct 185/70R15 Pirelli CN36 tires.

The car's exterior finish is bright and glossy, complemented by correct 15-inch Fuchs wheels, Cibié headlights, bumperettes, and 1973-vintage Texas license plates. The sporting, yet comfortable cabin features firm seating, nice upholstery, a period Sapphire XIX radio, and color-matched Coco floor mats. The front luggage compartment contains a corresponding 1973 date-stamped spare, jack, jack pad, tool kit, and Porsche car cover in a storage bag. Documents and other very desirable items include the original Owner's Manual in pouch, Technical Specifications book, CIS maintenance guide, one black and two red valet keys, antenna key, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. This final-year example of the classic and refined early 911 is described by the knowledgable consignor as offering beautiful road manners. As offered, it represents great value in today’s marketplace for confirmed sports car, and specifically, Porsche enthusiasts and collectors everywhere.
