Of the total 911 series production for 1969, a mere 1,492 of the desirable S Coupes were built. Today, these rare high-performance Porsches, revered for exhilarating driving character, quality engineering, and quintessential styling, are among the most collectible early 911 S models.

The beautiful example presented here received an extensive, documented mechanical restoration in 2014 by the noted Texas-based Porsche experts Eagle Racing. The original two-liter six-cylinder engine was disassembled and rebuilt, as was the Bosch mechanical fuel injection and the five-speed manual transaxle. Brakes and suspension systems were restored at the same time. According to the consignor, extensive attention given to the mechanical details of this classic Porsche was performed with the goal of bringing the 911 S to the highest performance level possible. Since being treated to the mechanical restoration, this Porsche has been driven for just 1,100 miles by its current owner. Finished in its original colors of Tangerine with Black interior, it perfectly represents the celebrated styling of an early 911. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, Kardex, warranty book, original owner’s manual, and tool kit accompany the car.

The highly desirable and rare combination of legendary Porsche style, reliability, and originality make this classic 911 S the perfect choice for touring, club events, and spirited driving on the open road.
