Vehicle Description

Chassis No. 9113301032
Engine No. 6331585
Transmission No. 915/02 7338172

Nineteen seventy-three marked the end of a number of eras at Porsche even though many didn't notice it at the time. Most notably, all variants of the 911 were about to receive a raft of stylistic and technical changes inside and out for 1974, its first major update since being introduced in late 1964. Large 'impact' bumpers, a redesigned interior, and less powerful engines were on the way in, and the classic, svelte 'long-hood' 911 shape with its high-revving engines was on the way out. In fact, the 1973 911 S models bound for the United States were the last to receive the highly powerful, mechanically fuel-injected (MFI) 2.4-liter flat-six. Furthermore, 1973 911 S models were endowed with an aerodynamic front spoiler, 6x15 forged Fuchs wheels fit with Michelin tires, aluminum front brake calipers, front and rear stabilizer bars, an upgraded front fender oil cooler, enhanced instrumentation, and a leather covered steering wheel as standard.

Ordered through Bob Hagestad Porsche+Audi of Lakewood (Denver), Colorado, this 1973 911 S coupe was completed at the Porsche factory Stuttgart, Zuffenhausen April 1973. Delivered just a few months later in July to its first owner Cliff Weiss of Golden, Colorado, it is just one of 1,430 made world-wide for 1973. Above and beyond the enhanced standard features listed above, this exceptional 911 S was ordered in optional 936 Silver Metallic paint over a Black interior with leather sport seats (409). According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, it was additionally optioned with an electric sliding sunroof (650), tinted glass 'all around' (568), and performance-oriented Koni shock absorbers (402). Records indicate that this well-optioned 911 S coupe then left Colorado for subsequent ownership in Minnesota and New York state with single, long-term ownership reported between 1978 and 2002.

More recently, it visited Gaswerks Garage in May 2019 and its type 911/53 engine received a full engine-out inspection and refresh. Additionally, its original five-speed 915/02 transmission received a reseal as preventative 'while you're in there' maintenance. Cosmetically, the highly Teutonic black interior looks to be in excellent condition with an original Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, leather covered steering wheel, perforated insert sport seats, and rear seats featuring luggage straps. The exterior is noted to have received a high-quality repaint in the past and this is to be expected as many late 1960s and early 70s Porsches optioned with metallic paint experienced clear-coat failures early on in life. It correctly displays its US-specification proudly: sealed beam headlights, solid orange front turn signal lenses, and red rear tail light lenses. Finally, it wears four, correctly finished 6x15 Fuchs forged alloy wheels shod in, period correct and optional Michelin XWX tires. With a raspy, metallic mechanically injected engine note and the ever-popular long-hood styling, 1973 marks the end of a highly collectible era of 911, especially in 911 S specification.
