I bought this particular 911S 2.0 from the then-president of the German Carrera RS register. As the first-year Porsche with long-wheel base and mechanical fuel injection this transition model is as rare as it gets. But that was even topped by the fact that it was pre-owned by no other than the Kremer Brothers, the arguably most successful private Porsche race team of all time.
With no more than 1492 cars produced and the highest hp rating (170) for any 2.0 Porsche engine the high revving 1969 S model has risen to iconic status among Porsche aficionados.
Although the chassis had been painstakingly restored during more than 1,200 hours, this was going to be a long journey with another 1,200-plus hours of restoration work. Matching engine, gearbox and most essential parts were present, but my idea was to bring this special car back to its former glory and get the blessing of surviving brother Manfred Kremer. And I did – alongside lots of much-appreciated support (see photos).
All parts, including powerplant, injection, gearbox, brake system and gauges were either completely rebuilt or exchanged for NOS parts sourced from a highly reputed German vintage-Porsche parts dealer – no reproduction parts whatsoever were used. It was expensive (a set of near-new dual H1 bulb headlights alone set me back over EUR 2,000) and time-consuming but the only way to go.
This 911S presents itself in concours, like-new condition in its original ivory white color and runs, handles and drives superbly.
Extensive restoration records with hundreds of photos available on request.
Not re-registered, not driven after restauration.
