This Porsche 911 2.4 S Targa was delivered new in France on March 13, 1972 by the importer Sonauto. In Gemini Blue, with long spans and five Fuchs wheels, it was equipped with the five-speed gearbox and Recaro upholstery in velvet and black imitation leather. It is therefore one of the 989 Porsche 911 2.4 S produced with the oil flap drilled in the right rear wing. Acquired in 1976 in second hand by the current owner's father-in-law, it was continuously maintained by him, notably at Porsche La Bretèche in Amiens, but also and especially at Michel Nourry, a renowned Porsche specialist and preparer based in Bourth in the Eure region. We have many maintenance invoices from the 1980s. In 1987, the car was repainted for more than 50 000 Francs at Michel Nourry, keeping its original colour. She had 80,115 kilometres on her speedometer. In 1989, a major overhaul was carried out by the Porsche dealership in Amiens, the car had 88,000 kilometres. It was in 1996 that the current owner of the 911 S acquired the car from his father-in-law. He remembers that it had about 6,000 kilometres on the meter, for a total of 106,000 kilometres. He continued the maintenance of the car, in particular at S-N.T.A in Deuil la Barre, including in 2000 a complete overhaul of the front axle. Today, the car has 12,500 kilometres on the odometer, probably corresponding to a total mileage of 112,500 kilometres. It is regularly maintained by its owner assisted by a retired mechanic who has known the blue Porsche in the past. Recently, an oil change was carried out and all the fuel hoses were replaced. The Targa roof was originally restored in black vinyl. On May 2, the car obtained a blank roadworthiness test with only a minor failure of a rear lighting system.
This makes it one of the most desirable Porsche Classic cars. One of the first 911 2.4 S still equipped with the famous oil trapdoor. It is now in an excellent state of preservation, without any trace of rust or impact. Its paint has not changed in 32 years and its original interior is in very good condition. Its clear history and corresponding numbers make it one of the most interesting examples on the market.
