The Porsche 911 is the flagship car of the German manufacturer. It has a distinctive design, rear-engined, with independent rear suspension, an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. Since its introduction in 1963, the 911 has undergone continuous development although the basic concept has remained little changed. Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of competition and is among the most successful competition cars ever. The earliest edition of the 911 had a flat-six engine in the ‘boxer’ configuration, similar to the 356, air-cooled, rear-mounted and displaced 1991cc. It was mated to a four or five-speed manual ‘Type 901’ gearbox. 

Built in March 1969, this 911S presents a rare opportunity to the Porsche connoisseur and enthusiast. Being a crossover year model, the 1969 911S was the first and only 2.0 litre S to use the longer wheelbase body of the later 2.2 litre S variant and the legendary 2.7 RS and the first S to make use of Porsche’s ingenious MFI fuel injection system. Other unique elements found only on the ’69 car were the magnesium cased engine with special high compression pistons and single plugs heads, as well as a special oil cooler layout running through the sills with the oil cooler itself sourced from the competition department. Aluminium brake calipers, ‘deep 6’ Fuchs wheels, woven dash and a 7,300rpm marked tachometer are amongst other notable unique features.

The included Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, shows the car to have been delivered in Ossi Blue with black leatherette interior. Supplied new to Ontario, Canada, this wonderful example has been lucky enough to have been owned by enthusiastic and meticulous owners throughout its life. The comprehensive history file shows a record of servicing, valuation appraisals, pictures and mileage records throughout, rarely seen with any car. The car remained in Canada until 2005 where the two main owners had cherished it for 28 years between them, before it went to its new owner, a Mr. Louis who imported it to the USA and where for the next five years, it resided just outside New York. It then moved to California where the car was kept for a further seven years by a Mr. Wolfe. Imported to the UK in 2018, the vendor has enjoyed this fabulous little 911 as part of his collection and reports the car to be an absolute pleasure to drive. Since his ownership, the car has been maintained by well renowned Porsche specialists GCS Engineering and Carrera Performance. Over the past couple of years, the car has had any maintenance required carried out immediately. Main items include the fuel pump seals and injection system being serviced and tuned in September 2021, the front oil cooler was replaced in March 2022, the wheels refurbished and fitted with a new set of Pirelli Cinturatos, (including the spare), in August 2022.

Supplied with a UK V5C registration document, a fantastic history file, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, driver’s handbook and it will come to auction with a new MoT test certificate. Having such a good history file, being matching numbers, highly original and in lovely condition, this pretty and rare 911S is not one to be missed.
