|Odometer reading||178,302 miles|
|Estimate||£38,000 - £44,000|
The original Porsche 911, with its famous and durable design, was introduced in the autumn of 1963 and built until 1989. Mechanically, it was notable for being rear-engined and air-cooled. From its inception, the 911 was modified both by private racing teams and the Porsche factory itself for racing, rallying and other competition. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful sports/racing car ever, especially when its variations are included; namely the powerful 911-derived 935 which won Le Mans as well as other major sports cars races. In 1967, Porsche introduced the 911T model and subsequently a 911E version, however the 911S was the most desirable and with only 3,174 Porsche 911S's manufactured, good quality surviving examples are rare and highly collectable.
Originally registered on 19th February 1974, this is a genuine matching numbers UK supplied righthand drive example. The extensive history file shows photographic evidence of an engine rebuild as well as the bodywork being restored. This 2.7S produces 175bhp and drives extremely well with no known faults. The fastidious vendor has owned this 911S for five years and the owner prior to him was the custodian for ten years. Fitted with the original Fuch alloys and a sunroof, we are advised the original steering wheel will be supplied with the car. The documentation for TUT 373M includes a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a V5 registration document, original service book and literature pack together with an MoT test certificate valid until May 2015 (with no advisories). This rare Porsche 911S is a splendid example, competitively priced and offers excellent value in today's market place.
