By the early 1970s, the Porsche 911 had hit its stride, and its iconic shape had become instantly recognizable to a future generation of collectors. The air-cooled rear engine was producing up to 200 horsepower, and the marque’s success in all forms of competition tempted many sports car enthusiasts to try a 911 – and never go back. In 1973, the base car was the 134-hp 911T, still carbureted in some markets, followed by the 157-hp 911E which was fuel injected.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.
