Rides from the Readers: 1971 Porsche 911T

Today’s featured ride is a 1971 Porsche 911T. This model year marked the final run of carbureted Targa 911s and, though it stood behind the 911E and 911S in performance, the 911T was entertaining and well-behaved on the streets, as befit a Porsche. The 911T came equipped either with a 2.2-liter, 142-hp flat-six with two three-barrel carbs or a 2.3-liter, single-carb mill that, despite its larger displacement, made less power.

 

This particular 911 belongs to Chris Docken but first belonged to his father Tom, a pilot in the United States Air Force who loved the look and precision of Porsche cars.

Is this correct information? Are you referring to the 2,341 cc engine that Porsche called a 2.4? I don't believe there was ever a single carburetor version of the 911, and the "2.4" 911T made between seven and seventeen horsepower more than the 2.2 liter 911T did, which produced 125 hp in US trim.
