1973 Porsche 911 T CIS Targa

F Series, completed in May of 1973

Five (5) owners, a true California 911 with full-service history since new in 1973. Very rare to find a great example such as this 911 with complete records, owners manual, tools, jack and 5th Fuch spare alloy wheel. The 2.4-liter engine has been rebuilt and has a huge amount of torque with over 140 horsepower, traditional 915 manual 5-speed transmission, and four wheels disc brakes. It is by far one of the most impressive CIS 911Ts that we have driven. Beautiful condition finished in Silver Metallic (paint code 8010) and a Black interior. All original floor pans and suspension. Options include Fuch alloy wheels, wheel moldings, Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, European headlights, fog lights & CoCo mats.

History

The 1972–1973 model years consisted of the same models of 911— the entry level T, the midrange E and the top of the line S. However, all models got a new, larger 2,341 cc (2.341 L; 142.9 cu in) engine. This is universally known as the "2.4L" engine, despite its displacement being closer to 2.3 litres— perhaps to emphasize the increase over the 2.2 L. The new power ratings were 130 hp (97 kW), or 140 hp (104 kW) in the U.S., for the T, 165 hp (123 kW) for the E and 190 hp (142 kW) for the S.

The 911E and 911S used mechanical fuel injection (MFI) in all markets. The 911T was carbureted, except in the US where it also used MFI, which accounts for the 7 kW (9 hp) power difference between the two. In January 1973, US 911Ts were switched to the new K-Jetronic CIS (Continuous Fuel Injection) system from Bosch, which Porsche used for the next 10 years on the 2.7L & 3.0L. These CIS-powered cars are usually referred to as "1973.5" models by enthusiasts. The CIS system in the 1973-1/2 was only available on the 911T Coupe and Targa, and all of those units were shipped to the USA. Total production was only 1,944.

With the power and torque increases, the 2.4 L cars also got a newer, stronger transmission, identified by its Porsche type number 915. Derived from the transmission in the Porsche 908 race car, the 915 did away with the 901/911 transmission's "dog-leg" style first gear arrangement, opting for a traditional H pattern with first gear up to the left, second gear underneath first, etc. Some say this was because the dog-leg shift to second gear was inconvenient for city driving, other say it was due to Porsche's desire to put 5th gear outside the main transmission housing where it could easily be changed for different races. The Sportomatic transmission was still available but only as a special order.
