THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This 911T Targa was delivered new in Europe finished in the Silver Metallic over Black partial leather interior color scheme that it wears today. It was optioned with the Comfort Group package that included alloy wheels (5) and tinted glass, as noted on its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
The car had been imported to the US and the present owner acquired the car in Hershey, Pennsylvania in the summer of 1977. He sold it to a friend in 2002 with 70,377 miles on the clock and bought it back in 2016 with only 5,000 being added in that time. It has been carefully maintained and enjoyed with the records to prove it. Showing just over 78,000 miles from new, recent service works included a new set of tires (including the spare), fresh brake fluid, oil and filter change, new spark plugs and distributor points, valve adjustment, new brake flex lines, and four new shocks. Incremental improvements have been fitted over the years to bolster the performance, comfort, and reliability of the car. These additions include a set of the all-important hydraulic Carrera timing chain tensioners, Turbo tie rods, H4 headlights, and a modern AM/FM stereo, in addition to a new set of stainless steel heater boxes. The trusty, original Marelli distributor is still in place along with the correct, original muffler.
Cosmetically, the car was repainted in its original color several years ago, the Targa top was restored by experts in Colorado, and Cocoa Mats line the footwell.
Reported to be a good runner, the long-time owner describes the car as starting easily, running smoothly and shifting through the gears as a Porsche should. Complete with numerous receipts and files documenting its history, COA, owner's manual, tool kit, jack, and the four repair/service manuals, this long-nose 911 is ready for its next owner to take into the backroads and do some carving.
