In 1976, Porsche offered what would become one of the rarest of the desirable 911 G-Series variants – the Ferry Porsche Signature Edition, named after the influential son of the firm’s founder. Setting it apart was special Platinum Metallic paint, ATS “cookie cutter” wheels, black anodized exterior trim, signature steering wheel, and a Cork colored interior featuring tweed seat inserts and door panels.
Several years ago, the previous owner, a Porsche enthusiast who has achieved the Porsche Club of America’s highest concours award three times, treated it to an extreme “concours-level detailing.” The car was disassembled and each component addressed was brought up to correct, factory-fresh specifications. The body, which had a high-end repaint in the early 1990s, required only careful hand-polishing. Fastidious attention was paid to correct underbody finishes and hardware plating to stunning effect.
Rounding out this impressive 911’s résumé is a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a tool kit, and a Webster tire pump in excellent condition. A fascinating car to explore and admire, it has been shown at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, and earned class wins at concours held in California at Palos Verdes, La Jolla, and San Marino. Notably, the 911 earned 99 out of 100 points at the latter two events. With its unique colors, specifications, and high-point concours presentation throughout, this 911 S represents an opportunity not to be missed.
