The first of countless up-grades to Porsche's long-running 911 came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S, the latter easily distinguishable by its Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels and featuring a heavily revised engine. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's sometimes wayward handling, and then in 1970 the motor underwent the first of many enlargements, from 2.0 to 2.2 litres. In 1974 all 911 variants received the 2.7-litre unit, hitherto reserved for the Carrera, when the latter went to 3 litres. Although in non-Carrera tune the 175bhp (DIN) 2.7-litre unit made slightly less power than the old ‘2.4’, it had been skilfully reworked to produce significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled to tolerance of low-lead fuel, vastly superior consumption and increased tank capacity, the new 911 proved superior to its predecessor in every way as a fast long-distance tourer.
This right-hand drive 2.7-litre 911 was purchased by the current owner in November 1988 and comes with comprehensive history. The vendor advises us that while in his care the car has been repainted, a new clutch fitted and the brakes overhauled. Prior to this ownership the engine had been rebuilt by Camtune (at 75,881 miles – current mileage 93,000) the invoice for which is included. Driven for only 2,000 miles in the past 18 years, the car is offered with service/maintenance invoices, recently expired MoT (October 2005) and Swansea V5 document.
