THE PORSCHE 911

The first Porsche 911 (née 901) got the new overhead cam, dry sump, flat 6-cylinder engine, clutch and transaxle nearly right. With mechanical specifications changed so much from the 356, Porsche's engineers elected to stay with what they knew and understood: a low-mounted, horizontally-opposed, rear-mounted engine with rear wheel drive and transaxle. They accordingly packaged their new car tightly, fitting everything into a short wheelbase of 2,211mm. Despite their best efforts at reducing the engine's mass, however, its position outside the wheelbase exaggerated the effects of the polar moment of inertia. The O- and A-series 911 swapped ends like a carnival ride.

In 1969, Porsche introduced a legend, the 911S. If heat transfer (as in the cylinder heads) or stiffness (as in the cam boxes) wasn't a requirement for an alloy component of the 901/2 engine, then it was replaced with magnesium. Titanium alloy – unprecedented in 1969 – was chosen for connecting rods. Dual ignition ensured both rapid ignition in the combustion chambers and reliability. Triple-throat Solex carbs were abandoned for precisely tunable Bosch mechanical fuel injection, and the free-breathing characteristics were augmented by bigger valves and higher lift cams with more aggressive timing.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The striking 911S offered here was completed on July 10th, 1969 at the Zuffenhausen Porsche factory. The new sports car was attractively finished in the special-order 'Metallic Dark Red' color over a black leatherette interior and was fitted with the sporting 'dog-leg' 5-speed manual transaxle. The top-of-the-line Sport model was optioned with tinted windows all around, antenna, and the rimes were shod with Michelin tires.

This beautiful example of Porsche's iconic short wheelbase 911S was purchased in 2007 in California by Mr. Martin Jackier of Longmont, Colorado. Soon after, he entrusted Rallye Coachworks of Englewood, Colorado to perform a comprehensive, bare metal repaint of the aging Porsche in the as-delivered 'Metallic Dark Red' exterior color. Reassembly of the 911S started in 2010, but shortly after, Mr. Jackier would decide to sell the car. The penultimate owner - a 30-plus year Porsche aficionado with many PCA Best in Show Awards to his name - purchased the car, as he recognized the desirable matching numbers, 911S model's potential and collectability. After his purchase, he consulted with some of Colorado's most experienced Porsche experts to complete the restoration in factory-correct, as-delivered fashion. Mr. Jim McMillan of Carquip in Boulder, Colorado was entrusted to rebuild the original matching-numbers 2.0-liter engine and 5-speed transaxle, and Mr. Dave Brown - also a Boulder, Colorado based specialist - retrimmed the cabin using only factory-correct materials and colors. Harvey Weidman's Wheels, a top name in Porsche roadwheel restoration, restored the iconic Fuchs alloy wheels, while the well-known instrument specialists at North Hollywood Speedometer refurbished all the instruments and gauges. Following the thorough and correct restoration of all the sub-assemblies, final assembly and sorting was handled by the Porsche experts at Storz Garage and Pat Moyle. The comprehensive and thorough restoration was completed in 2013. Offered from a prominent, Naples, Florida based Porsche collection, this spectacular 911S remains in excellent condition. Less than 600 miles has been recorded since the restoration was completed, and the car has remained in climate-controlled environments. A First in Class Award was given the stunning Porsche at the 2014 Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance, and surely more awards are due if a new owner is interested in showing the car competitively.

The 911S family of cars, from the original 2-liter version through to the 2.4 variant of 1973, represent some of the finest driving - genuine - sports cars of their day. For those who have thought about owning one of the best restored examples, this splendid, matching numbers and factory correct machine deserves serious consideration. Offered with the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, owner's manual, tool kit and jack, this striking 911S 2.0 Coupe is ready for spirited drives on challenging roads and participation in PCA events.
