Gallery Junction is pleased to offer this “Barn Find” 1971 Porsche 911 T Coupe
It is believed to be numbers matching and was originally finished in a very rare and desirable shade of blue, it appears at some point in the distant past it underwent a near bare metal refinish in Tangerine.
“Faster”-all manufacturers boast this to some degree, but none do refinement quite as rigorously as Porsche. By 1971, the 911 was in the D-Series of production sporting a longer wheelbase, and larger 2.2 engine. The 911T, or Touring, was first introduced as Porsche’s entry level product in 1967 to increase sales competing with cars like the Mercedes 280SL.
In addition to improving their flagship 911, 1971 was also a hallmark year for Porsche in other respects as well. Weissach, their famous development center, was officially inaugurated and they won the 24 Hours of Le Mans setting a lap record that was not broken until 2010 (amidst many track changes). Things at Porsche were going well, you could say.
This is an excellent example to restore and a great coupe for a project.
