Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, the Porsche 911 is perhaps the most iconic sports car of all time. Initially dubbed “901” (the designation was changed at the behest of Peugeot), the now-famous coupé entered production in 1964 and today enjoys cult status, with early machines fitted with chrome bumpers especially sought after.
The launch model began life with a 130 horsepower 1,991-cc flat-six, yet from 1967 an enhanced variant became available: the 911 S Coupé. Output was raised to 160 horsepower, while standard features included magnesium alloy wheels, adjustable dampers, ventilated disc brakes and a stiffer front anti-roll bar, as well as an additional anti-roll bar at the rear. To the delight of enthusiastic drivers, besides being faster, the “Super” banished the understeer of previous 911 versions.
One of only 1,823 thought to have been built to S specification in 1967, the coupé offered, chassis 307662, was delivered new to Italy. Originally finished in Agablau with a black interior, the condition of the Porsche shows evidence of restoration work, said to have been completed between 2012 and 2016. The 911 S Coupé is now presented in Slate Grey. At the time of consignment, this iconic German sports car was displaying just 64,550 kilometres, and is accompanied by a Porsche certificate verifying its matching-numbers chassis and engine.
