After having had two German owners, the car came to Belgium in June 2017, where this unique piece of Porsche history underwent a complete restoration.
The bodywork was completely stripped, sandblasted, placed on a straightening bench and fitted with new sheet metal parts… For the finish, the original colour ‘Bahama Yellow’ was chosen once again, after which the whole was rebuilt with new parts (rubbers, chrome, …).
The engine, gearbox and suspension were completely disassembled as well and assembled again with new or reconditioned parts. An upgrade to hydraulic chain tensioners was carried out. The 4.5 X 15J Fuchs rims on which the ‘S’ was delivered new were also fitted with new Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres.
Finally, the interior was completely revamped in black leather with ‘Pepita’ accents. The reconditioned – green – counter and aluminium S trim provide a nice contrast.
The car was subsequently delivered in February 2020.
Meanwhile, the car was only allowed to cover 600 km since the restoration.
It is therefore not surprising that the car is still in perfect condition.
De 911S is equipped with:
A photo book showing the restoration
The original owner’s manual
A copy of the Cardex
A copy of the last German registration
A new toolkit
The original Jack
