It has been six decades since a two-door 2+2 high performance rear-engined sports car, the Porsche 911, was introduced by Porsche AG of Stuttgart. However, in 1966, Posche introduced a more powerful version of this model, the 911 S. It was produced until 1973, when it was replaced by the 911 Carrera RS. One of the coupe models, the 1970 Porsche 911S is up for auction.
The Porsche 911S is powered by a rebuilt 2.2-liter flat-six engine paired with a replaced 5-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. In 2016, the cooling fan, fan housing, alternator, oil level sender and spark plug wires were replaced. It is mounted on 15″ Fuchs alloy wheels wrapped in 195/65 Continental ContiProContact tires.
The car is finished in Albert Blue, has been properly maintained and is in good condition. It is equipped with bright trim, a left-side mirror, bumperettes, gold badging on the rear decklid, a single polished exhaust outlet, European-spec H4 headlights, amber rear corner lenses, four-wheel discs with aluminum calipers and ventilated rotors. SSI heat exchangers have been installed also.
Inside, the Recaro seats are trimmed in black leatherette with corduroy inserts. In front of the driver is a four-spoke steering wheel behind which is a five-digit odometer showing 49,335 miles (total mileage is unknown). Additional equipment includes a Blaupunkt push-button radio, a heater, power windows, and Coco mats.
The Porsche 911S comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, an owner’s manual, service records, and a clean Illinois title in the name of the owner’s company.
The auction ends on April 2nd and the current highest bid is $100,000 USD.
