According to a digital copy of its factory Kardex, this 1969 911 S Coupe, Porsche’s most sporting and top-of-the-line model, was completed on 5 February 1969, finished in Light Ivory over an optional partial Black leather interior. Destined for the United States, it features highly desirable sport seats with black corduroy seating inserts. Factory-fitted options included tinted glass all around, a Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio, and a manual antenna on the left side. Furthermore, its Kardex confirms that the same 901/10 engine and transmission remain with this example as when sold new through Porsche Cars Southwest distributor in San Antonio, Texas.
A history file of receipts and documents is provided with the car, with the earliest paperwork dating back to 2008. Most important are the restoration invoices dating from 2009-2010 after being purchased by James Hascall. During this period the car was in the hands of German Tech Inc. of Largo, Florida who performed restoration work to both the mechanicals and body. A full rebuild of the matching numbers engine and five-speed transmission was performed along with work to the braking system and suspension. During restoration, the cosmetics were tended to as well with a complete repaint in its original shade of Light Ivory. During restoration, the decision to add period-correct “rally” style modifications was made with the addition of Cibié hood-mounted driving lights along with Porsche side stripes. A detailed invoice dated 15 January 2010 totaling $76,323 is available for review for the full restoration of the car, itemizing every part and component along with labor.
Post-restoration, this 911 S Coupe entered the substantial Porsche collection of James Hascall, a long-term PCA member and former club President. Additional invoices from German Tech from 2010 to 2015 are contained within the history file. Acquired by the consignor in March of 2018, it has seen service at Hennessey Porsche, a Porsche Classic Partner. In the consignor’s ownership, it has had extensive service and maintenance work completed, with invoices since 2018 totaling $22,773. Most recently, it has received a Porsche Classic Technical Certificate (CTC) from Hennessey Porsche, confirming its numbers matching status, and is offered with its owner’s manual, history file, a toolkit, and jack.
If the Porsche 911 is defined by anything it is the constant improvements it has undergone throughout the decades. Porsche has tinkered with the original design for 35 years with the first major revision occurring for the 1969 model year. Lengthening the wheelbase by 2.4 inches improved the sprightly handling of the original much to the approval of the motoring press. At the same time, 1969 featured the swan song for the high-compression, rev-happy 2.0-liter capacity engines. In Type 901/10 specification, as in this matching-numbers 911 S Coupe, it features Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection (MFI) and 170-horsepower at 6,800 rpm. Slightly flared fenders to accommodate wider six-inch wheels rounded out the major improvements for this special 911 model year.
