Historically, and thus far, the most important Porsche model has been the 1964 introduced 911, which was to remain in production in much the same form for the next 30 years, albeit progressively updated and modified. With a basically similar layout to the 356, the new 911 was built on a steel platform chassis with suspension by torsion bars, Macpherson struts at the front and trailing arms at the rear. The first version of the 911 was powered by an air-cooled 2.0 litre, horizontally opposed six with five-speed box first used on the 904 competition coupé. Capacity increased, first to 2.4, then 2.7 litres, whilst from 1984, the capacity of the legendary Porsche motor was increased from 3.0 to 3.2 litres and the SC 911 became the 911 Carrera.
Unusually for a Carrera of the period, the German delivered 911 on offer here was very well optioned from new including central locking, alarm, top tinted windscreen, heated passenger wing mirror and 16” Fuchs forged aluminium wheels, but more unusually; heated adjustable sports seats, air conditioning, sunroof, limited slip differential, rear screen wiper and both front and rear spoilers. The car has also benefitted from a rare RUF tachometer and sports exhaust being fitted sometime since. Very rarely seen with any car, incredibly the supplied service books show a total of 42 stamps throughout the car’s history. The care given to it can be seen in the condition, which belies its mileage, presenting incredibly well. The vendor reports the car to run and drive better than virtually any other in his impressive collection, the car sounding incredible through its sports exhaust and is now only offered for sale to make room for the pending delivery of a new car. Receipts and MoT test certificates from its life in the U.K. are all included in the supplied history file with the car having been cared for by Zentrum Porsche in Oakham for the past ten years. This wonderful 911 has been also has been maintained by other, well reputed, Porsche specialists such as Oaktree Porsche in its past, testament to its lovely condition and how well it runs.
Supplied with a V5C registration document, owner’s handbooks, service books, two sets of keys, file of receipts and an MoT test certificate valid until July 2023. A rare example of a highly original and well cared for appreciating Porsche classic.
