Description

This Porsche 1970 911S 2.2 was supplied in May 1970 through Porsche Switzerland. It is presented in its original colour combination of Blood Orange exterior and black vinyl interior and is numbers matching. The car is highly original with factory paint finish still evident in several places and a lovely patinated interior complete with factory Recaro sports seats still in their original covers.

The car spent the first 30 years of its life in Switzerland with three different owners. It was maintained for much of this period by the same classic car specialist near Montreux. It was then purchased by a well-known British Porsche enthusiast and event organiser, who imported the car to the UK in 2000. He commissioned a refurbishment at Sportwagen, one of the leading Porsche restorers in Europe. The car was sold to the current UK owner in 2005.

The car is in excellent condition having been regularly maintained by a respected classic Porsche specialist in North London; the car now benefits from extensive fettling by Sports Purpose in conjunction with Heritage Autowerks.
