Continuously refined since the model’s introduction in 1967, the 1973 Porsche 911 S featured a magnificent 2.4-liter engine, a five-speed 915 transaxle, and a lower front spoiler for high-speed stability.

This Silver Metallic 911 S was completed in May 1973, and delivered to Kendon Porsche-Audi in Wilmington, California. Built to US specifications, this Porsche was optioned with an electric sunroof, KONI shock absorbers, auxiliary oil cooler, and desirable sports seats trimmed in black leather. Documentation includes the original window sticker, factory manuals, and records dating back to 1980, noting three prior owners, including one who kept the Porsche for nearly 35 years. The original steering wheel, Sekurit glass, and period Blaupunkt radio remain intact, and the car retains its matching-numbers engine and transaxle per the accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

Repainted in its original Silver Metallic by a previous owner, the 911 S was acquired by the consignor in 2019. During his ownership, the Porsche has benefited from a service and compression test, which recorded 130-135 psi in each cylinder. Additionally, the Fuchs alloy wheels received new Michelin tires, a new muffler was installed, and the car was carefully detailed throughout. With its matching-numbers driveline, attractive original colors, ideal factory options, and recent attention, this 1973 2.4 S is an air-cooled classic worthy of serious consideration.
