The first owner, a pharmacist from Frankfurt am Main, regularly moved the Porsche in the first two years up to a mileage of around 50,000 km. In 1974 the car was sold to a nobleman who moved it until 1978. During this time two minor damage was documented, one in the front area, one in the rear area. The cost of the repairs was just around 1,000 DM each. The nobleman drove the Porsche up to an odometer reading of 115,000 km. Documented by entries in the vehicle registration document, the vehicle was then decommissioned in 1980 and only approved again in 2001 after extensive measures for restarting by the new owner. This owner moved the vehicle over a period of 8 years up to an odometer reading of 154,000km, about 5000km per year. Pictures show an engine overhaul in 2006 due to worn-in bearing shells. The mechanical injection pump was completely overhauled and matched to the engine in 2007. A contactless ignition system and a Cargraphic rear silencer were also installed in this train. The last change of ownership took place in 2008, since then the Porsche has only been driven 1500km per year. Valuations carried out regularly document the consistently good condition of the vehicle. The lacquer layer thickness is between 200 and 400 my. Only the trunk lid, which was repainted several times as a result of stone chips, has a layer thickness of 600my. These relatively thin layers of paint show that no significant bodywork was required. The body structure is very good, the paint quality is good with only minor color deviations.
A birth certificate, issued in 2006, confirms the original, first cardboard cover letter, the German first delivery as well as matching numbers and the built-in additional equipment rear window wiper and radio "Becker – Mexico – Olympia". The currently installed, contemporary correct Recaro sport seats were installed by the previous owner. The original seats are present.
Overall verdict: The 911 is in a state of preservation that can hardly be found as an S Targa with a German history.
