Our love for a car is not restricted to performance alone. It goes beyond the pure mechanics. Because when the driver sits behind the wheel for the first time, the emotions get into gear long before the pistons start to move. All of the senses start firing and send messages to the brain. We smell, touch, feel and get excited about what we see. The interior of the car can move us just as much as the furnishings in our living room. It is this feelgood factor that determines our attachment to the vehicle.
In view of the equipment in the coveted classic, the term “inner values” takes on a whole new meaning. While removing unwanted signs of age from the engine and body was a major challenge from a technical point of view, restoring the interior calls for great sensitivity, excellent workmanship and experience. Only then can the old times be faithfully revived. For a 38-year-old 911, solving this task is not as simple as it might seem: if you need genuine parts for the interior, you have to know where to find them. They are usually no longer being manufactured. This represented a significant problem with the 911 T as a number of parts were missing from the interior. But of course the experts from the
Even in the 70s,
Since the 911 T features a sliding roof, the vehicle headliner also has its peculiarities, which prove very useful in everyday life. The experts began by shaving the original material, i.e. they made it thinner. It was subsequently perforated and then fitted. What is special about this rooflining, however, is a very handy zip in just the right place. This provides access for mechanics to reach the sliding roof drive for maintenance.
The 911 T now looks like new again. Because it is. Silver on the outside, black on the inside – the classic and most popular colour combination even in the 70s. Anyone who may have seen the car in its pitiful condition last autumn will scarcely believe that the much sought-after collector’s item now looks just as it did when it rolled off the production line in Zuffenhausen in 1973. The only thing left to do is to drive it. But that shouldn’t take too long. The “Revive The Passion” project has reached the home straight.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
