The "Bella Verde" we call is certainly one of the best and most original F models that we know. In addition, it is particularly attractive in the unique “green metallic” color and a very rare appearance not only on our streets.
Green is not only the favorite color of the Porsche family and thus one of the most sought-after colors for a 911, but also a color that, after almost 50 years, still exudes a special mixture of independence and understatement. Together with the sporty equipment such as the Recaro sports seats in black leather, this combination is simply stunning in this vehicle. The originally installed black comfort seats are also available. In the last stage of development in the '73 model year, the decorative elements were no longer made in chrome, but in black, which is why this model looks independent and more modern than its predecessors.
The 911 2.4 S was the first road 911 with a front spoiler.
The last and most powerful engine was the basis for the legendary 2.7 Carrera RS and, with its 190 hp and low weight, still promises pure driving pleasure today. This car is particularly valuable due to the equipment, which, in addition to the original Recaro sports seats in leather, also includes the plastic tank of the 2.7 RS and the leather-covered RS sports steering wheel. The car is in a very well preserved and largely unrestored original condition with no recognizable previous damage to the body. Only a few years ago the vehicle was repainted in its original color. The car still has the original engine and gearbox and is therefore matching numbers.
Due to the recurring and extensive overhaul by the Porsche specialist RUF in recent years, this vehicle has been technically comprehensive and maintained in value. According to the documents and statements of the current owner, there was only one change of ownership. The current owner, an engineer and expert Porsche collector from southern Germany acquired the car in 2013.
The car was last extensively serviced in June 2019 as part of a major inspection at Porsche RUF and since then only movement drives have been carried out. The vehicle has also been meticulously cared for in previous years. The operating instructions and the tool set are also part of this collector's set, as are a large part of the historical documents and the documents of the previous owner.
Conclusion: This one-of-a-kind 911 2.4 S Targa is a rare opportunity due to its traceable history and its condition, which is known to be unrestored and accident-free, from second hand. We are particularly pleased that this top model of the F model series has found us in its original condition and this color combination. The RS equipment makes this car the legitimate predecessor of the 2.7 Carrera RS. The driving characteristics, as well as the condition of the car and the interior are at the highest level. Thanks to the continuous maintenance and the knowledgeable handling, the car is immediately prepared for the next trip and is a beautiful, rare collector's item that promises driving fun and further appreciation potential!
