Porsche 911 2.4 T Targa 1972 Gemini Blue

Model History

The Porsche 911 was developed as a more powerful, larger, more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356, the company's first model. The new car made its public debut at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. The car was developed with the proof-of-concept twin-fan Type 745 engine, and the car presented at the auto show had a non-operational mockup of the production single-fan 901 engine, receiving a working one in February 1964. It originally was designated as the 'Porsche 901' (901 being its internal project number). 82 cars were built as 901s. However, Peugeot protested on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So, instead of selling the new model with another name in France, Porsche changed the name to 911. Internally, the cars' part numbers carried on the prefix 901 for years. Production of the first cars began in September 1964.

In 1966, Porsche introduced the more powerful 911 S with Type 901/02 engine, the power raised to 160 HP. Forged aluminum alloy wheels from Fuchs, in a distinctive 5-spoke design, were offered for the first time. In motor sport at the same time, the engine was developed into the Type 901/20, installed in the mid-engined Porsche 904 and Porsche 906 with 210 hp as well as the fuel injected Type 901/21 installed in the 906 and 910 with 220 hp.

The 2.4 litre series 911 introduced in 1971, consisted of the same models of 911 as earlier series, the entry level T, the midrange E and the top of the line S. The engine capacity was enlarged to 2341cc by using a longer stroke. The 911 2.4 benefited from the many improvements that had been made since the 1964 911. The 2.4 therefore is one of the best ‘classic’ 911’s. The 2.4’s were also very fast.

All models featured mechanical fuel injection except for the EU version of the T model.

With the power and torque increases the 2.4 litre 911’s got a new stronger transmission (915), it was the first transmission that did away with the older style “dog-leg” transmission used in previous 911 series.
