Lone Ranger: ’75 Porsche 911
If the Porsche we featured yesterday was an Outlaw, then this one is the Lone Ranger. It is totally original, like the day it left the factory, albeit with a bit of patina. The mid-70s were not great years for any car manufacturer. They wrestled to get government mandated smog limits met mostly by heating things up. Heat in air-cooled cars isn’t necessarily a good thing. Fortunately, modern technology can help eleviate some of those issues. If you live in a state that gives cars over 20 years old a pass, then this one may be for you. This Porsche has had 2 long-time owners and they both babied it according to the seller. And with only 70,000 miles and an original interior, one can assume that is correct (but verify). The car hails from Oregon and that is a good sign that in addition to being babied, it lived in a decent climate. Porsche didn’t get the Zinc bath until the following year. You can buy these ’74-76 Porsches relatively inexpensively if you find the right one. You’ll need to consult with a local Porsche shop to evaluate the car and make recommendations on what mods will help it stay in one piece. By the way, we really like the check seats that were popular back then in the 911 and later, the 928. Just saying. Click here for many more details.
