1971 Porsche 911T Coupe
s/n 911121346 Eng no. *6115643*
Light Ivory with Black Interior

Early 911’s embody a combination that is rare among collector cars today. They have unparalleled drivability and usability, especially when compared with other cars of the same vintage, but are also wholly evocative of a different era. There is a certain wholeness, cohesiveness, agility, and communicativeness that is only evident when they are driven, and it is no surprise that they have a fanatical following. In 1969, the wheelbase was lengthened to make the cars’ handling more manageable, and numerous other detail updates introduced as well. By 1971, the 2.2L engine was available, mating additional power to the improved road holding capabilities of the LWB cars. Until recently, however, they were just used cars to be driven and enjoyed, which makes finding genuinely original examples which have been continuously for cared throughout the car’s life very difficult today. All early 911’s have appreciated tremendously in recent years, with preservation-grade cars seeing especially significant increases in value.

This particular 911 Porsche is an exquisite, preservation-grade, one-owner time capsule, worthy of the discerning collector’s eye. Save for the engine cover and right door, which may have possibly been repainted early in the car’s life (and have paint meter readings of 7.5 and 9.5), it is a genuine original paint example throughout, verified with a paint meter which shows readings of 3.5-5.5 across all other panels. Having spent its entire life in the dry climate of Northern California, it has never been subjected to any rust, damage, or related repairs. It retains its matching numbers engine and transaxle, along with its books, tools, and service records back to new. It was optioned new with factory air conditioning, lightweight alloy 6X15 wheels, tinted glass, and a Blaupunkt radio with retractable antenna and speakers.

Sold new by Martin-Johnson Porsche-Audi in Oakland, California on April 22nd 1971 to Mr. Roland Davies of 1447 Park Avenue, Emeryville, California, just a few hundred feet from the front door of Fantasy Junction…! Service stamps in the book indicate that it was serviced by the selling dealer at 681 miles in April of 1971, 5,700 miles in July of 1971, at 12,063 miles in December of 1971, at 18,520 in August of 1972, at 24,772 miles in August of 1973, and finally at 29,003 miles in October of 1974.

Copious documents on file (1973-2015) demonstrate regular maintenance throughout the years, and a few very minor changes such as the 1974 installation of an aftermarket rear sway bar. In 1984 records indicate that it was fitted with updated cam chain tensioners and idler arms, and the front ride height was lowered ¾ of an inch. From sitting, the clutch required replacement in 2015.

Today, just 50,640 miles have been logged from new, making this one of the lowest mileage 911s available from what is arguably the golden era for Porsches now famous 911 model.

The presentation is that of a stunningly original example, which is crisp enough to pass as a restored car to most casual passerbys. The paint is in beautiful condition throughout, without significant flaw on any of the body or opening panels. The car sits on beautiful Fuchs wheels, shod with Goodyear tires.

As is the case with the exterior, the interior is also in wonderful original condition, including the floor mats, carpet, seat and door panel upholstery, headliner, and mint dash pad.

Save for an updated A/C compressor to improve functionality, the engine bay and undercarriage are both factory original and in impeccable condition.

As would need to be the case to be considered by the diehard collector, this wonderful 911 is exceedingly complete. It is accompanied by a mint manual pack including antenna keys in their original plastic holder, radio manual, service and warranty books, and owner’s manual. Other original period factory documentation includes an Accessories brochure, Porsche Family Tree, two versions of Porsche: A Love Story, and a 1971 Porsche factory color card, the ski rack brochure, among other period sales literature. Even the original window sticker and sales invoice are present.

This is an unrepeatable purchase- a car worth reaching for. The preservation-minded Porsche custodian will look long and hard to find a car equaling this level of completeness and originality.
