Without doubt, Porsche’s 911 is a cornerstone of modern sports car lore. Marking a revolution at Stuttgart with its newly designed six-cylinder powerplant, the 911 paid homage to the outgoing 356 series while blazing a new path that soon led to racing domination on a global scale. However, of all the many 911 variants produced over the next half-century and beyond, the earliest, short-wheelbase cars are particularly coveted.
Striking in white and black livery, this 1966 Porsche 911 is a thrilling find. An original European-delivery example, this 911 was purchased new in Germany in June 1966 by Gordon Stice, the noted Mid-Century modernist architect and former president of the Porsche Club of America. Mr. Stice imported the 911 directly to California after taking possession and retained it until the mid-2000s. As offered, this matching-numbers, unrestored early 911 remains exceptionally original apart from a quality repaint in the correct factory-specification white. Accompanied by a wealth of documents, this wonderful early 911 is further complete with the Importer’s and Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin, German registration document, post-importation correspondence, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, books, manuals, a mounted spare, and tool roll. Carrying exceptional provenance, highly original, and beautifully presented, this early, short-wheelbase 1966 Porsche 911 is equally ready for the concours lawn and spirited driving enjoyment.
