Footnotes

  • In 1974 all variants of Porsche's perennially popular 911 sports car received the 2.7-liter engine, hitherto reserved for the Carrera, when the latter went to 3.0 litres. Although the standard 2.7-liter made slightly less power than the old '2.4', the 2.7 -litre 'S' took it up to 175 bhp and it had dual benefit of producing significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled a five speed factory gear box, 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.

    The car we offer was originally supplied new to San Antonio, in the dry state of Texas. Finished in the delightful period colour combination of Sahara Beige with black interior, it is one of only 2,310 Porsche 911S Coupés supplied to the USA in 1975.

    This exceptionally original car was imported into the Netherlands in 1998 and owned and cherished by an enthusiast for 18 year until his death in 2016 when it was imported into the UK by a collector. The Dutch owner spared no expense with Porsche specialists Motron in Kenkum, Netherlands on servicing, maintenance, and re-commissioning over the course of his nearly two decade ownership.

    Here in the UK, the Porsche was treasured, kept garaged and driven only sparingly by its collector owner, who sold the car to the current vendor when downsizing his collection in 2018. Since its arrival in this country the 911 has been taken to marque specialists Tuthill Porsche, who serviced the brakes, replacing the front callipers and pads, and routine changes of engine oil and filters have kept this classic 911 a joy to drive. In the last year the car went to Barr-Tech in Cambridge where the maintenance schedule continued, most recently the warm-up regulator was reconditioned.

    With the car reported to be driving well, this very original air-cooled 911 is reluctantly offered for sale as a result of the vendors expanding family.

    Accompanying documentation includes a Porsche GB Letter of Authenticity, a V5C registration document, original 1975 ownership and maintenance manual and MoT to November 2020.
