Ordered in late 1966, to become a dedicated group 3 race car by racing profile Ingemar Burström from Sweden. Ingemar was very well known for his several races in the 60’s he campaigned this 911 in 1967/1968 at various national racing events
This 1967 911S was one of the very first Porsche factory build competition 911, with factory power increase from the usual 160hp to 180hp said with Carrera factory engine work.
It was sold w/ factory recaro seats & limited slip diff & Webasto, This is a dinosaur offered by Porsche prior of the iconic 911R and Sport & Rally kits , this car was possibly the very first time Porsche offered a customer competition 911 build from factory.
Finding an unrestored, genuine factory-built 911S competition car in 2023 is an unusual occurrence and likely a chance not to be repeated. In fact, finding any early 911 with racing history in period, has become a real challenge.
Ingemar Buström was racing this 1967 911S in the golden years 1967 & 1968 when the Porsche 911 model had a breakthrough in Swedish national group 3 , Burström was racing this 911S in the 1967 SM season, together with famous profiles like, Kent Frohde, Anders Josephson & Picko Troberg and Zylwe Rahm
its one of 5 special ordered 911s GT / Competition spec racecars for the 1967 Swedish championship series with the rare engine performance upgrades.
Attached is a newspaper article from December 1966, where Burströms upcoming delivery, Burströms 911 is specifically highlighted with a higher performance output of 180hp corresponding to Kardex, the photo is taken late 1966 outside the Scania Vabis headquarters in Södertälje Sweden. Ingemar Burströms Porsche was delivered few weeks later of this article., we got full history of the 5 cars and there where abouts, 4 are still left
Hand writing “Achtung motor frisiert auf 180ps, keine guarantie” meaning power increase with 20hp to 180hp and voided guarantee” these modifications was carried out from factory under guidenence of Herr, Gerhard Mitter factory driver and owner of Mitter Tunning and this particular modification which is believed having been seen on very few Kardex files, meant these few cars was unofficially referred to as the 911s with “Carrera” engine technic. Do also note the car was ordered by the racing driver Ingemar Burström being the first owner “Wagenbesitzer 1”
Burström was noticed by the media in the 1967 group 3 season, for his Porsches results.
Headline reads “Better and Better”, the article below highlights the Carrera parts as a game changer
The body of the car is in a very good shape despite the car got a turbo body kit ! minor rust but mostly solid compared to usual rust of these models. What’s exceptional about this car, is that it seems like they just fitted a body kit on the outside to the car once in the 70’s so most is still preserved, meaning that doors has original red paint on the inside,all date matched original 911s gauges, relays, , washer bottle , wirring all untouched and original. Interior, dash and rear seats are original, even the shocks for the front hood are the original dated 9/66. All the important details are intact which couldn’t be expected on car this old. there is NO FAKE VIN STORIES TO THIS CAR
The engine number is the same as the engine number in the Kardex, but a cross check with the part number on the engine casing indicates it’s one out of roughly 2000 aluminum replacement cases BUT according to our research and update in the winther months of 2023 . We have good indications that these engines where made / tuned by Gerhard Mitter and they all came on repalcement cases , what we dont know , did he do them in his shop for Porsche or how did they end up in these cars !! This is however very well understood and accepted among Porsche collectors as the history and provenance all goes with the body, hence the importance of documenting body numbers and numbers in the body in general
Finding an unknown 67s competition 911 is not something likely to happen again, this car should gain massive crowd interest when restored and presented at events regardless of where in the world, and owning this car also gains you access into the world’s most prestigious car events, where only cars with period race history will be accepted. Meaning this car is an admission ticket to star events
We got much more pictures and history of the car!
