This 1972 911E Targa is numbers matching (engine and transmission as per factory issued Certificate Of Authenticity), original, rare color of Metallic Gold, rust free, with low miles. Record of ownership is retained back to 1977.
Of the 911 models offered in 72, the 911E was the rarest. Only 861 911 E Targas were built in 1972, which is the most desirable year of the 69-73 Longhood Porsches. In 72 Porsche engineered the oil tank in front of the rear mounted engine and featured a filling cap on the rear fender. This only lasted one year as many cars engine oil fillers were filled with gas. This forward oil tank was reintroduced in the 964 cars as the benefits of moving the weight forward were realized. In 72, the 911 engine was increased to 2.4 Litres and the gear box was updated to the 905 5-speed unit. The engine is completely free of leaks and drives beautifully.
This anodized aluminum trim on this Targa is all original and has preserved its original finish. This Targa’s doors close with the unmistakeable Porsche solid feeling that is not common on older Targas. The original steering wheel, tool kit, and owner’s manual are included with the car.
