1971 Porsche 911S Coupe

comprehensive restoration just completed - matching numbers

Description

The first of many high-performance versions of the newly introduced 911 arrived in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2-litres.

By this time, the 911 models had established themselves as one of Europe’s most refined and enjoyable sports cars for the road, and also as a serious weapon on the racetrack in production-based formulae.

 

To have a Porsche 911 as a road car made a statement – you knew about the best things in life. Just take the king of cool for instance; in the opening scenes of the cult movie Le Mans, Steve McQueen is seen charging around French country roads in a 2.2-litre 1970 911S – the glorious sound of its flat-six and virtually open fuel injection intakes are remembered by most who have seen the movie. It’s perhaps no surprise that McQueen kept one for his own personal use long after filming was over.

 

These 2.2-litre 911S models are nowadays considered one of the most sought after pre-1973 911’s, offering a very flexible torque-curve, yet retaining the light, rev-happy feel of the earlier 2.0-litre models.

 

This simply stunning matching numbers 911S has just benefitted from a hugely detailed restoration, including a rebuild to the engine and gearbox. Interestingly the 911 has rare factory options of lightweight engine hood and rear plate panel, in addition to a fitted sunroof.

 

Offered with Dutch registration and RDW documents, this fabulous car is now ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next owner.
