As the Porsche 911's first sport model, the 1967 911 S sits on hallowed ground within the early 911 community and among Porsche fans worldwide. Upon introduction, the new 911 bested the older 356 (and Carrera 4-Cam) in pretty much every performance category. However, Porsche was wary of racing their new car, famously attempting to protest a Florida-based team from entering their privately-owned 911 in the 1965 24 Hours of Daytona until they developed their own. A short two years later, the factory had thoroughly tested a suite of modifications and upgrades resulting in the new 911 S. Easily identifiable by its Fuchs wheels, the 911 S featured a heavily revised engine which was increased to 2,341 cc in 1972 and paired with Bosch mechanical fuel injection for a total output of 190 horsepower. A bevy of modifications such as a new chin spoiler raised the specification and the price of the 911 S with a base price of over $10,000 for the coupe. Certainly not cheap, but of course quality never has been.

The current owner of this 1973 Porsche 911 S Coupe acquired the car more than two decades ago, reportedly from the original owner. The 911 was subsequently treated to a thorough restoration to its current Silver Metallic and Black leatherette finishes, as well as an engine replacement using a correct 1973 2.4-liter unit (engine number 631277) sourced by the consignor. Before being equipped, the engine reportedly underwent a full mechanical rebuild by Supertec Performance of Fallbrook, California, while the transmission is also said to have received a rebuild courtesy of Scott's Independent of Costa Mesa. Complementing its attractive, period-correct appearance are a pair of "through the grille" fog lights and a set of "deep six" Fuchs wheels. The car is understood to retain all of its original glass with the exception of the windshield, and additionally benefits from new Bilstein shocks rebuilt brakes offering enhanced drivability. With a raspy, metallic mechanically injected engine note and the ever-popular long-hood styling, 1973 marks the end of a highly collectible era of 911, especially in 911 S specification.
