Description

The 1967 911 S was the highest-performing variant of the original, short-wheelbase 911; performance enhancements over the standard model included a 160 hp engine, Weber carburetors, five-speed transaxle, ventilated disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, Koni shock absorbers, and Fuchs alloy wheels.

According to its certificate of authenticity, this 911 S left the Porsche factory in October 1966, finished in Polo Red and equipped with desirable options including Recaro sport seats and a limited-slip differential. It later was imported into the US, and Vintage Motorcar Restorations in Atlanta comprehensively restored it in its original colors of Polo Red over black in 2005 at the behest of a former owner, with the car placing favorably in numerous concours events.

The car’s next owner had respected marque specialists Paterek Brothers modify this car in 2009 so it would closely resemble the 911 S that Vic Elford and David Stone drove to victory in the 1967 Monte Carlo Rally. Autohaus of Chatham, New Jersey, rebuilt the original 2.0-liter engine during this time. Replete with driving lights, a rally timer, passenger map light, rear wiper, and other period-correct details, Elford proclaimed this car “a spectacular, exact nut-and-bolt re-creation. Exactly as we drove it” in 1967. With a distinctive motorsport character, this Porsche is accompanied by a set of Fuchs wheels, its original sport seats, tools, and extensive documentation. Ready to be driven and enjoyed in its current rally form, this 911 S could also be returned to original specification, should its next owner desire.
