History of the 2.2L 911S
The 1970 911 S displays the steady improvement that Porsche
imparted to its highest-performance sports car. Today it is
considered one of the most sought-after pre-1973 911s, these
higher-displacement models offer a very flexible torque-curve, yet
retain the light, rev-happy feel of the earlier 2.0-liter cars.
All the 911 models from September 1969 onwards were newly fitted
with the larger 2.2-liter flat six-cylinder engine from Porsche,
resulting in an engine output of a potent 180 hp for the 911 S. To
address the tendency of the 2.0-liter models to oversteer, the
wheelbase was extended by some 2.5 in., providing better balance
and handling. Stopping power was provided by 11.1-in. ventilated
front and 11.4-in. ventilated rear disc brakes and the S models
were lightened by utilizing aluminum to fabricate the engine lid
and central bumper. Interior fittings were upgraded as well, with a
new steering wheel lock and instruments now mounted in rubber
rings. Externally, new door handles of a safer design replaced the
earlier pushbutton type, and the cars were delivered with full
factory undercoating for the first time.
