THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautiful 911S coupe presents much more than meets the eye. Sold new in California and passing through the hands of several enthusiast owners over the years, 300301 was extremely well-equipped from the outset and has been properly maintained throughout its life. It has enjoyed several important upgrades, including an engine enlargement to 2.7 liter displacement, which along with its Bosch mechanical fuel injection, yields an output roughly equal to that of a 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, about 210 bhp. With those additional horses and weighing less than 2400 lbs, this 911S offers comparable performance.

Originally sold by the Mozart dealership in Palo Alto, near the Bay area, this very handsome 911S left the factory in October of 1972, wearing Light Ivory paint over a full Dark Brown leather interior. It was factory equipped with an electric sunroof, air conditioning, an auxiliary oil cooler, tinted glass, a radio installation package, clear fog lights, and Michelin tires on forged Fuchs alloy wheels, all of which drove the retail price to $12,164, a substantial increase over the base price of about $9500. It was delivered to its first lessee owner, Mr. John Keane of Mill Valley, on February 20, 1973. A comprehensive folio of registration, insurance, and maintenance records show that it was sold in 1982 to Mr. Kopel Sandler of Menlo Park, California, who had Garretson Engineering in Mountain View rebuild the motor to 2.7 specifications in February 1988. At that time the car had been driven 113,000 miles. It was subsequently sold to Mrs. Rosa Sandler of Newton, Massachusetts. In 1990, after being stored for several years, the car returned to the West coast and the ownership of Mr. Maurice Eckley of Scotts Valley. The odometer then read 117,888 miles. In December, 1993, the car was sold to Mr. Mark Fisher of Portland, Oregon, then the President of the local Porsche Club of America region. The engine was again rebuilt and the car resprayed during his ownership. The following year, health issues forced its sale to some close friends, in whose care it has remained to the present day. It has been driven a total of 142,330 miles at the time of cataloguing.

Offered in its original color scheme and in what the consignor says is excellent running condition, this is a beautiful and very quick example of the last of Porsche's long-hood "F"-series 911s, loaded with desirable options. It is fitted with a Momo leather-wrapped sports steering wheel (the original is included) and a stainless steel muffler. Having recently undergone a thorough detailing and service, this very desirable 1973 911S is supplied with its correct spare, tool roll, jack, manuals, and supporting documentation from new, including its original window sticker, manuals, warranty book, even notations of fuel purchases. A factory-issued Certificate of Authenticity is included, as well as a cover and protective bra.

The Porsche enthusiast seeking a solid and drivable example of one of Zuffenhausen's most exciting sports cars need look no further.
