THE PORSCHE 911

A modern classic if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower.

The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 with the announcement of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, an increase of 30% over the regular 911, that helped lift the top speed to 140mph. Other improvements included Koni shock absorbers, a front anti-roll bar for a sportier chassis and more powerful ventilated disc brakes. Over the past 40 years few sports cars have proved as versatile as Porsche's perennial 911, a model that has proved equally capable as a Grand Tourer, circuit racer or rally car. Success in the latter role came only a few years after its introduction, when works driver Vic Elford became European Rally Champion in 1967. In the modern era the 911 has established itself as one of the most popular and successful cars in historic rallying worldwide.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This first year 911S was completed on June 9th, 1967. A well-optioned example, the high-performance 'S' was fitted from new with a set of optional halogen fog lights, a Blaupunkt 'New York' radio, a loudspeaker, an antenna, and Dunlop 165/15 tires and was trimmed in Polo Red over black leatherette. Its first owner kept the car for nearly two decades before selling it to the second owner in 1986. Upon acquiring the car, its second owner spent a few summers driving and enjoying the 911 with his wife, but the birth of twins in 1989 relegated the 911 to a heated garage. When opportunities to take the car out arose, the desire to have the Porsche serviced held things up, exacerbated by the fact that the closest Porsche specialist was 100 miles away – alas, the sporting 911S spent the next two-plus decades off the road.

Showing fewer than 73,600 original miles, most recently the 911S's matching numbers two-liter flat six has been brought back to life and cleaned. Changed from red to white during the first owner's tenure and fitted with A-Programme 5.5" steel wheels in place of the original, skinny 4.5" Fuchs five spoke alloys, this short wheelbase 911 is ready for a thorough refurbishment and then driven 'as-is', or could lend itself to a full restoration should its next owner desire to embark down that path.

These early 911's are highly sought after these days, especially the top of the line, high-performance S model. Here is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a genuine, matching numbers 911S from the first year of series production for this hallowed model.
