The Porsche 911 T is an iconic piece of automotive history, favoured for its lightweight, pure, and engaging driving experience, the early 911’s are commended as the authentic 911 experience.

The 911 superseded the previous 356 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, where it debuted to a captivated audience, quickly gaining traction in the world of motorsport thanks to its lightweight form factor and powerful engine.

Benefitting from numerous revisions over the years, the 1973 model year benefitted from an increased displacement to 2.4L, the improved H pattern 915 gearbox, as well as a longer wheelbase was carried over from previous revisions.

This car is an American import, first imported from the states in 1997 and having been UK owned ever since. Being the American model this car received the updated fuel injection system, adding an additional ~9BHP to the original ~130BHP. Finished in factory paint colour "Albert Blue" and with a tan leather interior, this LHD Porsche 911 T might be 49 years old, but it won’t hesitate to provide you with every bit as much fun as its modern counterparts.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Isaac after meeting Graham the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

If I were to describe my taste in vehicles using only one word, it would be iconic, if it’s rare, special, or a little bit different I have to have it and that was exactly the case with my 911 T.

Graham has owned this 911 T, originally purchased in July of 2008, for the past ~14 years. He has loved and cherished the car from his coast side home in Liverpool, where it has been garaged throughout his ownership.

When speaking with Graham about the car it is clear that he absolutely does not want to part with the car at all, however family commitments are forcing his hand as he simply has not been able to drive the car in recent months and rather than letting it gather dust in his garage he wants the car to be driven, enjoyed, and maintained by someone with the time to do so. He will be happy to answer any questions on the car in the comments section below.

The original and iconic 911 silhouette is complemented by Albert Blue paintwork, original Fuchs forged alloy wheels, and tasteful brightwork.

Wheels and Tyres

The original Fuchs forged alloy wheels are in the classic black backed colourway and whilst the finish is a little tired, the alloys themselves are in solid condition. We didn't spot any curb damage, or previous repairs.

The tyres are in need of changing as noted on its latest MOT, as all four tyres are worn close to the legal limit and there is slight damage to the offside rear tyre too.


The bodywork overall is in good condition and while there has been some bodywork repairs carried out in the past, as can be seen by the relevant invoice in the paperwork gallery, the repairs appear to have been done to a good standard as all panels gaps do appear to be even and there are no issues opening\closing doors or the boot or bonnet.

There are signs of bubbling and corrosion beginning to set in on lower panels, most notably doors and sills, however we feel these would not be beyond economical repair on a car of this calibre.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our high resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer, and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.


The "Albert Blue" paintwork is in good condition for its age, having been detailed on the day of our visit, the paintwork has received a single stage paint correction to remove oxidation, lighter swirl marks, and increase gloss and colour depth.

There are some minor scratches present on the vehicle which would require further attention and while these are generally in less obvious locations, we’ve done our best to highlight these in our gallery images.

Again, we have taken high resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves. The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these high resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

There is very little to be said for the glass on the vehicle, with no serious chips, cracks, scratches or other such blemishes present on any of the panes around the car.

The brightwork is suffering from some signs of age on the lower sections as you would normally expect from a car of this age, however the upper trims and rubbers are in good condition.


The five gauge dashboard, three spoke steering wheel, and tan leather interior, an instantly recognisable Porsche aesthetic in both look and feel.

Seats and Carpets

The tan leather seats are in good condition, with no cracks, splits, or areas of heavy wear. There is a slight patina present on the hide where it has stretched and worn in over time, but the leather itself is unbroken and the colour has held fast across the board.

The only damage to speak of in regards to the leather is three horizontal cuts to the drivers side rear seat, as can be seen pictured in our gallery, but this is the only exception to the otherwise good condition leather interior.

The carpets are for the most part undamaged, there are areas of heavier wear particularly in the drivers footwell, however the carpet is by no means falling apart and would see a marked improvement from a good clean.


The dashboard is simple, as to be expected from a car nearly half a century old, however the instantly recognisable Porsche five gauge layout is in good condition and each gauge works as expected. The dash itself is free from any delamination to the dash top and is fitted with an aftermarket stereo.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The small dish three spoke steering wheel is simple in its design but certainly fits the car well, the steering wheel appears to be in good condition with no damage to the wheel itself or the leather surround, an aftermarket Momo item.

The gear stick is a simple design and is in good condition for it, the aftermarket aluminium ball shifter is undamaged and the rubber gaiter where the shifter meets the chassis is undamaged too.


Featuring the American 2.4L engine with fuel injection, capable of ~139BHP, delivered to the rear wheels by the improved 915 gearbox, driver and machine connected in the authentic 911 experience.

Engine and Gearbox

The 2.4L F-Series engine is naturally aspirated and benefits from the American fuel injection form factor over the otherwise carb fed engines of this model year. This provided an additional boost on horsepower, bringing the overall figure to ~139BHP.

During our "On The Road" video you can hear the engine fire up from cold, not having been started in over 24 hours, which it does with little hesitation. Whilst on the road the car performed with no real issue, providing ample power and acceleration on demand, and changing gear with no trouble either. We could not hear any untoward noises from either engine or gearbox during our time on the road and Graham tells us he has had the gearbox lightly recommissioned during his ownership, however you can see and hear for yourself in the video.

Suspension and Brakes

The independent suspension design of the early 911’s provides a good balance between comfort and performance, not struggling to handle corners with ease, whilst providing a non crashy ride that modestly reminds you of Porsches engineering prowess.

Graham has not told us of any work carried out on the suspension, however from what we can gather from our time with the car the suspension is not in need of immediate attention. The brakes tell a similar story with no faults to speak of on the day, the car stopped quickly and efficiently without squealing or grinding.

The Drive

As is to be expected with any classic Porsche, driving this car is going to put a smile on your face no matter how you drive it. Whether it's the admiring looks from the passersby, or the giddy excitement of feeling the car accelerate underneath you, the Porsche 911 T undoubtedly ticks the box.

Electrics and Other

Coming up on its 50th birthday the car doesn’t have all that many electrical systems! However, the ones it does have all appear to work as expected. The vehicle is however in need of new bonnet struts for the front, as the ones currently on the car do not hold the bonnet open and require a prop to be inserted so as to not receive an unwelcome bump on the head!

History and Paperwork

Coming to market from ~14 years ownership, this 911 T was imported to the UK in 1997 and benefits from some extra BHP being American spec.

Originally registered in America we can see through the history of this vehicle that it has spent time in multiple states such as Florida and later Michigan where it was finally transported overseas to land in Southampton in 1997.

The shipping costs are all invoiced as well as the company who provided the service. Since that date there are invoices present for parts, labour, repairs, and maintenance reaching back over the last two decades, this includes an MOT dated to expire on 20.06.2023 in which the only advisories whatsoever are tyres.

Overall this American Porsche 911 T is a great example in a lovely colourway, whilst it does need some small jobs doing these are not to be sniffed at as once completed this will be a fine example of a long standing classic, responsible in part for laying the foundation of the revered 911 heritage we know today.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in high resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
