According to a certificate from Porsche Italia, this car left the factory at the end of 1969 and was invoiced to an Italian dealer on 1 December that year, making it a 1970 model. This specifies that the 911S was finished in black (code 1010), with upholstery in brown leatherette (code 21), and fitted with 'Comfort' equipment, with 'S'-type instruments, an oil gauge and leather steering wheel. This corresponds exactly to the car's presentation today. In addition, the certificate confirms that the Type 911/02 engine is the same as fitted when the car left the factory. Its specification is therefore entirely correct.
The car was purchased in 2010 by its current owner, a collector of important Porsches from Modena, who wanted one of the first 911 2.2 S models sold in Italy. It was in original condition and in order to make it perfect, he decided to fully restore it. A large photo file shows that it was completely stripped down and the body taken back to bare metal; the work was carried out by Efferici Service in Modena, their bills amounting to 18,820 €. The interior was restored by the Ferraresi workshop in Ferrara, using 'Pepita' cloth to the original specification. A mechanical restoration (with the original engine and gearbox) was undertaken by a renowned Italian Porsche specialist well known to our collector. The car comes with certificates from Porsche Italy and ASI (for historical conformity), restoration bills and an extensive photographic record of all the work undertaken.
With such a fine restoration and impeccable appearance, this Porsche 911 S will enable its new owner to re-discover the pleasure of driving a classic model and to understand why it has enjoyed such unbroken success.
