After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillac’s would smoke its droopy tail. The solution; to take the 2.7-litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board.
This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2,687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 165bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe.
Described to be a great daily driver, the 911S on offer here is still finished in its original colour combination of Guards red over black leather interior. Having had a vast amount of work done, both mechanically and cosmetically, the car is in good condition in all respects.
Works completed include suspension upgrades along with a new clutch, master cylinder, brake rotors, rebuilt callipers, fluid changes, and a tune-up. The suspension has been upgraded with Turbo tie-rods, new CV joints, Koni front struts, and Bilstein rear shocks.
Offered with a lovely history file including service records, with the last service within the last 500 miles with a fluid change, new spark plug wires, and a new performance clutch, this sporty 911 is ready to hit the road and provide as much fun to its new owner as it has to its last.
