A one-of-a-kind 911, successfully envisioned to elevate the 1973 1/2 Porsche 911T Coupe into a Carrera RS-level performer in the rare, 1973 1/2 segmented production year, it achieves that and more with looks every bit as sizzling as its performance. This Dennis Collins' creation combines the last year of the evocative and desirable long-nose hood and the debut of the lauded Bosch CIS fuel-injection system with a blistering 2.7-litre Carrera engine package, complete with many upgrades. An incredibly desirable half-year model with the upgraded powertrain guaranteed to outperform every 1973 1/2 911 in its wake and then some.

When Dennis Collins journeyed to South Carolina on his popular YouTube series, Coffee Walk, to procure this rare 1973 1/2 Porsche 911T, he discovered an incredible car that lacked its original engine stamp, but the remaining numbers were all matching. He sent the yellow beauty home to Texas and set out to equip the rare Porsche with everything we all wish the 1973 1/2 had when new. Over the course of a two-year restoration project, with photographs of the journey, he took the tarmac-searing 2.7-litre Carrera engine apart, split the cases and completely rebuilt the formidable engine. The 2.7-litre was the fastest Porsche engine built to date when it was released with a 0 to 60 time in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 152 miles per hour. From there, Collins rebuilt the five-speed manual transaxle and meticulously rebuilt the suspension as well as the brakes. The Bosch K-Jetronic CIS fuel injection system was serviced and the air-conditioning system was restored. He intuitively incorporated high-performance dual exhaust and upgraded Koni shocks. With the restoration completed in 2022, the singular 911 was now equipped to perform like a Carrera RS wrapped in the sought-after half-year model. But he did not stop there.

The original cabin, which was ordered with rare, factory special-order sports seats, was given a striking aesthetic makeover. Reupholstered by DTS Interiors in Plano, Texas, the uncommon, special-order seats were outfitted with stylish brown leatherette with Porsche's black, brown and cream houndstooth centers to accentuate the original brown carpeting; receipts accompany the sale. The cockpit boasts numerous Porsche factory options including a special-order comfort package, faux woodgrain dash and trim, a stereo headphone outlet and a walnut gearshift knob, in addition to its AM/FM cassette stereo.

This example is accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the original owner's manual, driver's manual, receipts of the restoration project, and comprehensive restoration photographs. The car was delivered Sepia Brown when new, but the vivid yellow paint is much more captivating and conducive to what lies beneath this formidable 911. The yellow body flaunts Carrera 2.7 and 911 script on the decklid. It is adorned with the factory-option front spoiler that greatly reduces drag and only augments the overall look. This eye-catching 1973 1/2 Porsche 911T is equipped to deliver knuckle-whitening performance with a full life of spirited enjoyment in its future. Highly collectible and equally enjoyable, this truly is a one-of-a-kind 911.
