Porsche 911 T Targa oil flap blood orange partially restored German vehicle partial leather appraisal (1972)
|Porsche||911 T Targa||1972|
With the 1968 model year, Porsche had begun assigning consecutive letters to the vehicles built in the corresponding period, starting with "A." The original version of the 911, commonly known as the F-Series, exudes a special charm. Even contemporaries less fixated on sportier vehicles can hardly escape its fascination. Although the design appears much more modern, it is easy to see that the basic concept is still based on the Porsche 356. Technologically, however, the introduction of the 911 meant a giant leap for Porsche. In 1967, i.e. 4 years after the presentation of the new Porsche, the Porsche 911 T was added to the program as a fresh entry-level model.
