“Showroom Fresh” 1973 Porsche 911T

Lyndon, one of our PorschePerfect.com readers, sent me a link to this Excellence Magazine article a couple of weeks ago. I finally got around to reading it (I’m a bit behind on my Excellence Magazine reading) and it was captivating. This particular Porsche 911T only has 700 miles on it and is original clear down to the tires.

Check out the first few paragraphs from the article:

This 1973 Porsche was driven off the lot, used briefly, and then carefully parked and covered in a Michigan garage. It wouldn’t see the light of day for three decades. It would emerge from its long slumber a 700-mile 911T with beautiful paint and an immaculate interior.?That’s not what makes it unique, though.

It’s the details that will blow you away. The chrome, aluminum, and rubber trim is all original and all looks new. If soft 36-year-old rubber seals sound impossible, consider the car’s original tires, which have no cracks in their sidewalls. The kicker, though, is the fact that the car still had its factory fill of motor oil until 2008.

“It’s a veritable time capsule in every way,” comments Kent Moore, a Southern California Porsche enthusiast who owns the car today. “That’s been the reaction of everyone who has looked at it. Crowds gather around it. It’s a new car — it is absolutely showroom fresh.”

If you don’t get Excellence or haven’t read this article, take a few minutes and check it out. It’s a great story about an absolutely amazing example of Porsche history.

  2. Wow, great find. wish it was an S or RS

  3. Yeah, but does it still have that new car smell?

    My guess is it smells like moth balls. I hope they drained all of the fluids from that puppy before firing it up after 30+ years.

  4. That car was in incredible shape for being put away for 30 years. What a great find.
