Beginning with the September 1969 production, Porsche once again updated its 911 flagship. While incorporating the lengthened wheelbase that was introduced the previous year to counteract the old 2.0-liter model’s slightly nervous handling, other chassis improvements included a rear anti-roll bar. Mechanically, the flat-six was enlarged to 2.2 liters across the lineup and developed a stout 180 hp in fuel-injected “S” trim.
According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this 911 S was completed in February 1970 and finished in Tangerine over a black leatherette interior. One of 1,430 high-performance “S” models built for the 1970 model year, this US-specification car also included a comfort equipment package and an antenna with loudspeaker and noise suppression. In February 2019, Porsche of Colorado Springs rebuilt this car’s five-speed gearbox, replacing the synchronizers in the process.
Accompanied by its tools, jack, and spare, this 911 S displayed 39,089 miles at the time of cataloguing and retains its matching-numbers Type 911/02 engine. Believed by the consignor to wear the majority of its factory-applied paint with the exception of its hood and deck lid, this 911 S presents in well-preserved condition throughout, and should be seriously considered by any 911 enthusiast or collector.
