Footnotes

  • A manual transmission example, this left-hand drive Porsche 911S was imported from the USA in 2008 and the lighting arrangements changed to UK specification. The car is fitted with what might best be described as a 'hybrid' engine, originally from a US-specification 911S or Carrera, consisting of '7R' crankcases and the top end from a 1970 911S. We are advised that, basically, the engine is mechanically identical to the 2.7-litre Carrera RS unit, with '7R' crankcases, differing only by virtue of its Weber carburettors (fuel injection was standard) and Perma-Tune/Pertronix electronic ignition. It certainly produces 2.7-litre RS power, as evidenced by dynamometer printouts showing a maximum output of 210bhp and peak torque of 180lb/ft. The Type 911/43 engine was rebuilt some 5,000 miles prior to the vehicle's importation, though the documentation to support this has been lost.

    Since its arrival in this country the car has benefited from further refurbishment, the handbrake assembly being stripped and reassembled and new Bosch Silvertop batteries installed in 2008. The rear brake callipers were overhauled by Classicar Automotive in 2010 (bills on file) while in 2012 a full under-body and cavity Valvoline Tectyl rust-proofing treatment was applied by Karmann Konnection of Southend-on-Sea. The chassis/floor pan had previously been welded. Atspeed Racing of Rayleigh balanced and re-jetted the carburettors and adjusted the ignition timing prior to the dynamometer runs, which were carried out last year (see bills). Earlier this year a new OEM windscreen and rubber seal were fitted, the air heather hoses and clips being replaced at the same time, again with OEM parts. The engine oil and filter were changed also. 'APN 125H' has covered only 5,000 dry miles since importation in 2008 and has always been kept garaged and covered. All bills for work carried out since 2008 are in the history file together with all expired MoTs. Finished in original blue metallic (a rare special-order colour) with black interior, the car comes with current MoT/tax, Swansea V5C document and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity showing the original build details and factory specification.
