THE 2.7-LITER PORSCHE 911

The first of countless upgrades to Porsche's perennial 911 came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguished by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raised top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the air-cooled, 'flat six' engine underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 liters.

In 1974 all 911 variants received the 2.7-liter unit, hitherto reserved for the Carrera, when the latter went to 3.0 liters. Although in non-Carrera tune the 2.7-liter unit made slightly less power than the old 2.4, it had been skillfully reworked to produce significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled to a tolerance of low-lead fuel, vastly superior fuel consumption, and increased tank capacity, the new 911 proved superior to its predecessor in every way as a fast, long-distance tourer.

To celebrate Porsche's 25th anniversary of sports car production, a limited edition 911 Silver Anniversary model was introduced as a one-year-only model for 1975. These cars were heavily optioned, and all finished in the attractive Diamond Silver Metallic paint, with a cool plaid interior. They remain among the most collectible 911-models of the era.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The exceptional Porsche offered here must be is one of the most original and best-kept impact-bumper 911's available anywhere. Not only is this car one of the just 504 Silver Anniversary 911S Coupe's delivered to the US, but very few Porsches of this vintage can match this cars impressive show history and highly original condition. The consignor, a Los Angeles PCA member and Porsche enthusiast, purchased the car from the original owner in 2011 with just 34,000 miles on the odometer, and has since been campaigning the Silver Anniversary 911 at prominent and competitive concours events. The list of awards speaks for itself; 2014 PCA Parade Preservation Class winner, 2015 La Jolla Concours Class winner, 2015 Werks Reunion Best in Class, and 2012-2016 PCA Zone 8 Full Concours Class Champion, totaling 20 consecutive Best in Class Awards!

The car is finished in the Diamond Silver Metallic in which these limited-production Silver Anniversary 911's came in, and is trimmed in the original dark blue plaid leatherette/vinyl interior. It retains its long list of factory options, including the two-stage heated rear window, Blaupunkt Bamberg radio, anniversary decals and dash emblem, Koni shock absorbers, Fuchs alloy wheels, as well as the original manuals, tool kit and jack, spare wheel and air pump, and its factory installed, matching numbers, 2.7-Liter engine. This extraordinarily original 911S has less than 42,000 miles from new, and a highly impressive PCA Concours history.
