This wonderful 1971 Porsche 911S was delivered new at the Porsche factory in Stuttgart to its first and only owner. Mr. J. Korbin of Lompac, CA purchased this 911S and used it while he was stationed with the US Air Force in Germany. He kept the car with him in Europe for about 3 years and had his local Porsche dealer bring the car back to his home in California. Mr. Korbin, an Air Force man his entire career would cherish, and meticulously maintain his 911S until his passing in 2016. The drivers front turn lens still adorns the Department of Defense Vandenberg AFB entrance badge. The car was then kept by his wife and driven and maintained by her until 2021. Mr. Korbin left a journal of hand written notes from the day the car returned back from Germany in 1974 through 2016. Every gas stop, every oil change, valve job etc is written down. Major service notes include a full engine rebuild in 2006 along with new clutch and brakes. About $20,000 worth of service records since 2014 include new fuel pump, rebuilt MFI System, new stainless exhaust and heat exchangers, new Capacitive Discharge (CD Box), new alternator, new front and rear Bilstein shocks, and new driver seat upholstery. A recent PPI showed compression of 165 PSI across all 6 cylinders.
The car was repainted in its correct Light Ivory exterior in the early 2000’s. The paint and cosmetics show quite well. Brand new Pirelli CN36 tires from Sept. 2021 wrap the dated coded 10/70 15″x6″ Fuchs Wheels. The 911S specific aluminum rear deck lid is present and in great condition. The underside is very clean and rust free as one would expect of a garaged, California, loved 911S. The car runs and drives very nicely. The MFI was recently rebuilt and engine has great compression as not many miles since the rebuild in 2006. The transmission shifts well and steering and brakes are tight. One minor paint chip on top of passenger fender and a light scratch on rear deck lid. Included with the car are original owners books, the journal of mileage and service history, California 911S C Blue Plate, original European delivery plates from Stuttgart 1970, recent service records, tool roll, date coded Fuchs spare wheel, and an email from David J. Pateman (Kardex Expert, COA) that this car is a true numbers matching and color example. This car is being sold from a reassigned California title in the Korbin’s name, so whoever purchases this car will be the 2nd registered owner.
