THE PORSCHE 911

Since Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356, the car has continuously amazed aesthetes, engineers, and driving enthusiasts, on its way to being known as a 'modern classic'. When planning the 911 designers retained the 356's rear-engine layout, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is an exceptionally well-restored example of the desirable, first-generation Porsche 911. Produced at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche plant as a 1971 model-year car, this fine example was finished as it appears today; a 2.2 T model with 5-speed manual transaxle, and painted in the striking, era-evoking Signal Orange exterior color. The interior was trimmed in black leatherette, just as seen in the car today.

The Porsche appears to have led a pampered life but was after nearly 50 years in need of a restoration, and a full nut-and-bolt restoration began a few years ago. Carried out by Porsche specialist shop CARS of Omaha, Nebraska, the 911 received a full mechanical and cosmetic restoration, bringing it back to its factory correct condition. The matching numbers engine, transmission, suspension and braking systems were all refurbished, while the exterior bodywork was taken down to bare metal and refinished in the car's original color of Signal Orange using Glasurit paint. A solid example to start with, it was possible to retain the original floors and fragile battery tray during the process. Brightwork was refinished as well, and inside a new black leatherette interior was fitted, while the gauges were rebuilt. Original Porsche parts were used to ensure correctness in every way. Equipped with the factory Fuchs alloy wheels shod on period Michelin XWX tires, the Porsche 911 looks just right. The car is offered with a Jack and tools, as well as the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity and restoration receipts.
