An exceptional honest example, the last of the early production
911S's. Excellent mechanical condition with a very powerful
2.4-liter engine (producing 190 horsepower), 915 manual 5-speed
transmission that shifts perfectly with a four-wheel disc braking
system. Just completed engine-out service including rebuild
transmission, fully tuned and serviced engine with new plugs,
points, wires, rebuild mechanical fuel injection pump, all new
brakes, refinished Fuch wheels and Pirelli tires.
Beautiful paint with the original interior finished in the original
color combination Black/Black with Porsche Classic Technical
Certificate and all matching numbers. Solid and rust free with all
original floor pans and front suspension. Options include Electric
Sliding Sunroof, "S" front spoiler, Fuch Alloy Rims, original
owner's manual and jack.
Only 1430 "911S" Coupes were built for the 1973 year. The electric
sunroof was a special ordered option that was an additional cost of
$450 (approximately 5% were special ordered with the electric
sunroof option). Truly a rare 911S that is only getting harder to
find and increasing in value.
The 1972-1973 model years consisted of the same models of 911- the
entry-level T, the midrange E and the top of the line S. However,
all models got a new, larger 2,341 cc (2.341 L; 142.9 cu in)
engine. This is universally known as the "2.4L" engine, despite its
displacement being closer to 2.3 liters- perhaps to emphasize the
increase over the 2.2 L. The new power ratings for the T were 130
hp (97 kW), or 140 hp (104 kW) in the U.S., 165 hp (123 kW) for the
E and 190 hp (142 kW) for the S.
Few cars made as permanent a mark in the automobile history in both
engineering and design as the Porsche 911 and the 1973 2.4-liter
production year is widely considered Porches' best vintage 911.
Today, the early model years (1965 to 1973) are considered highly
collectible, offering the purest forms of an iconic sports car.
Early 911's embody a combination that is rare among collector cars
today. They have unparalleled drivability and usability, especially
when compared with other cars of this the same vintage.
All early 911's have appreciated tremendously in recent years, with
good solid cars seeing especially significant increases in value.
The late cars (1972 and 1973), fitted with a 2.4 Liter engines, are
very desirable and are generally regarded to be the ultimate
development of the original long hood 911. The 911 S was the
top-of-the-line of the 911 range (other than the 73 Carrera RS)
featuring the most sporty equipment and the most powerful
