Zuffenhausen, Germany – A 1973 Porsche 911 T Coupe will be restored by Porsche Classic on behalf of the Porsche Club of America (PCA), which will raffle it off among its members and present it to the winner at the Porsche Parade in the U.S. in August 2011. The car’s restoration will be documented in text, pictures and videos available online during the process.
The Porsche Club of America, the largest in the world with 104,000 members, traditionally raffles off new Porsche vehicles among its members twice a year. This is the first time a classic model will be raffled off, but it will first be restored to its original condition by company experts in Zuffenhausen, where it was originally built for the U.S. market.
The car, known as the F model and in its last year in 1973, has a desirable narrow body, along with air-cooled, 2.4-litre flat-six engine. It was originally delivered with a silver exterior and black interior. Not much is known about its history and several non-original parts have been added over the years. The car will be completely dismantled and restored.
The new owner will receive a book with documentation of the work done on the vehicle, an exclusive plaque, and a photo CD with around 1,000 pictures.
