The 1970 911 S displays the steady improvement that Porsche imparted to its highest-performance sports car. Nowadays considered one of the most sought-after 911s, these higher-displacement models offer a very flexible torque-curve, yet retain the light, rev-happy feel of the earlier 2.0-litre cars.
All the 911 models from September 1969 onwards were newly fitted with the larger 2.2-litre flat six-cylinder engine from Porsche, resulting in an engine output of a potent 180 hp for the 911 S. To address the tendency of the 2.0-liter models to oversteer, the wheelbase was extended by some 2.5 in., providing better balance and handling. Stopping power was provided by 11.1-in. ventilated front and 11.4-in. ventilated rear disc brakes, and the S models were lightened by utilizing aluminum to fabricate the engine lid and central bumper. Interior fittings were upgraded as well, with a new steering wheel lock and instruments now mounted in rubber rings. Externally, new door handles of a safer design replaced the earlier pushbutton type, and the cars were delivered with full factory undercoating for the first time.
The 1970 911 S coupe offered here is meticulously presented in Blue Metallic (8484). over a Black Leatherette interior, this 911 S is said to retain its original matching-numbers engine. The subject of a complete professional restoration from the ground up accompanied by photographic evidence of this fact. Stunning in every respect and driven just a few kilometers since completion. This fine example of an exceptionally rare and highly sought-after model is destined to find a new owner at the sale.
