“Porsches are not created for an egalitarian world: they demand more than mere competence from a driver and have uncompromising personalities that inspire either love or hate.” – Car and Driver, February 1972

Therein lies the endless appeal of the early Porsche 911. In particular, the 2.4-liter 911 S was not only the top available specification, it remains one of the most definitive 911 variants today.

This highly desirable 911 S from 1973 hails from the final production year for the desirable “long-hood” 911; and is thusly among the last of this pure, original 911 design. An original US-specification 911 S equipped with options, including air-conditioning, a Blaupunkt radio, power windows, and Dunlop tires, this fantastic Porsche left the factory finished in Light Ivory paintwork and black leatherette upholstery. Refurbishment over its lifetime to date includes a quality repaint in the factory-original color performed during the late 2000s, with mechanical components also believed to have been rebuilt at that time. Owned by a discerning East Coast collector, this lucky 911 spends its time in climate-controlled storage with a world-class collection of sporting thoroughbreds. Accompanied by a corresponding Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this very desirable 1973 Porsche 911 S marks an exciting opportunity to acquire one of the most engaging and enjoyable sporting icons ever created.
