Impeccably restored and simply outstanding, this example from 1972 is one of only 1,750 higher-horsepower “S” models, and fewer still factory-equipped with a sunroof. A highly desirable example, it features an arresting Signal Yellow exterior finish with black interior and charcoal carpeting. In recent years, a prior owner invested $70,000 to elevate the 911 2.4 S to its current superb condition, with $30,000 spent on the engine and gearbox alone. Receipts documenting this investment are included with this sale; and just 4,000 miles have been traveled since the work was completed. It remains stock in specification and as originally delivered from the factory, aside from the addition of a set of factory RS steel rear-wheel flares installed for a sportier look, and the ability to fit larger rear wheels and tires as used on the Carrera RS. The 911 further benefits from an engine-out service, which included replacement of seals, and a thorough detailing was completed during the consignor’s ownership.

Clean and attractive from top to bottom with an impressively detailed and presented underside to match, this 911 2.4 S is an excellent, extremely well-dialed-in example with a tight feel. For those seeking an excellent early 911 2.4 S Coupe equipped with a rare factory sunroof, this particular example is equally ready for the show field or thrilling and fast open-road touring pleasure.
