Description: We are delighted to offer this genuine and rare 1972 Porsche 911 2.5 litre S/T for sale on behalf of its current, long-time owner.
Porsche dominance of the GT classes by 1972 was in full swing. You just didn’t go GT racing unless you had a 911. Demand was huge with Porsche building 24 special lightweight “S/T” models with fuelinjected 2.5 litre engines pushing out an astonishing 270 bhp. With wider rubber hidden under flared alloy wheel-arches, it looked meaner for gone was the slab-sided look. The 911 now had a much meatier look to it and even standing still it looked a lot faster than it did before. In 1972, the 911S/T dominated the new Group 4 European GT Championship to the extent that other manufacturers didn’t see the point in getting involved anymore. Porsches dominance did see the demise of the series in 1976, but it was hardly their fault, they delivered what was asked for, a race winning GT car you could compete with anywhere in any discipline you cared for.
This gulf blue factory S/T (delivered w/ M491 option) is one of only 24 built with continuous history from new. Known as the ex-Bartels/Tebernum car with excellent in-period int'l race and hillclimb history which includes a 1973 Daytona 24hr 9th OA finish !
#0987 was restored in the early 90ies by renown specialist Mario Linke of Methusalem to stunning, concours condition and has been used sparingly up to the present day.
