In September of 1969 Porsche delivered the new 2.2L C-Series Model
911 for the 1970 model year. All three versions of the series, the
911T, 911E and 911S were available in either Coupe or Targa. The
entry level model, the 911T was cranking out 125bhp, the 911E was
more luxuriously equipped both inside and out with 155bhp and the
flagship model, the 911S topped the boards with an impressive
180bhp. The front-strut mounting points in the C-Series models were
moved slightly forward in order to lighten steering and reduce
kickback for better handling. The steel engine covers on the E and
S versions were replaced with aluminum to shave weight. The T
version finally received ventilated disc brakes, but to keep costs
down they were iron as opposed to the lighter alloy calipers used
on the more expensive E and S. The only other significant change
for 1970 was an anti-corrosion coating for the chassis.
This 1970 911S is a beautiful example of Porsche's grand touring sports car. Sporting its original "S" motor and 5 speed transmission, it drives like it should. The black Sport Seats with Houndstooth centers provide a beautiful contrast to the luscious Burgundy paint. The 911S has been put through an extensively documented restoration and there are also copious records going back more than 30 years. Owner's manual, tools and jack are present. Super straight and done to a high quality standard, you'd be hard pressed to find a better 1970 911S available.
