As the final production year of the original first-generation models before stricter US emissions and safety regulations took effect, the 911 S was Porsche in its purest form. From the beginning, the 911 was subject to continuous improvements and factory updates. For 1973, the high-performance S was powered by a 2.4-liter Type 911/53 engine producing 190 hp, which was mated to the stouter 915 five-speed transaxle with gears in a traditional H pattern. On the outside, S models gained a small under-bumper spoiler that improved high-speed stability, while 15" x 6" Fuchs alloy wheels were standard.

This 1973 Porsche 911 2.4 S is finished in uncommon Gold Metallic over a tan leatherette interior. Completed by the factory in April 1973, this example was specified with US equipment, a heated rear window, wheelwell moldings, manual antenna, loudspeaker, electric sunroof, and desirable sport seats. Displaying less than 72,000 miles on its odometer, this S has reportedly had five owners and is accompanied by service records dating to 1973.

With a numbers-matching engine per its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this 911 presents in very original condition throughout, with the exception of its re-dyed front seats and a single bare-metal respray in its original color. Offered with books, tools, jack, and spare, this 2.4 S should be seriously considered by any 911 enthusiast or collector.
