In the 1976 lineup, Porsche’s 911 S was positioned between the 912 E and the Turbo Carrera. That year, Porsche also offered the seldom-seen Ferry Porsche Signature edition. Setting it apart, the SE featured special code W1W1 Platinum metallic paint, color-matched ATS “cookie cutter” wheels, black exterior trim and a Cork colored interior featuring tweed seat inserts and door panels.

As one of just 200 Signature Editions produced, this 911 is rare indeed. Recognizing that, the passionate consignor, who has earned three Porsche Parade Manhattan Trophies with another car, treated this coupe to what he conservatively described as a “concours-level detailing.” In fact, the car was disassembled and each component addressed was brought up to correct, factory-fresh specifications. The body, having already had a high-end repaint in the early 1990s, was in outstanding condition when he acquired the car, so it was carefully hand-polished to an eye-catching luster.

Rounding out this impressive 911’s resume are the original and complete tool kit and Webster tire pump, all in excellent condition. A fascinating car to explore and admire, judges have awarded it class wins at prestigious 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. Stated by the consignor to run and drive beautifully, with its unique colors, specifications, and high-point concours presentation throughout, this 911 S represents an opportunity not to be missed.
