The vehicle in detail

Chassis No. 9113310775
Engine No. 6331794

This 1973 911 S Targa left the Porsche factory in Stuttgart, Zuffenhausen in May of 1973 finished in uncommon Signal Yellow (114) with a Black leatherette interior destined for the United States. According to the accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the car was additionally optioned with Koni shock absorbers, limited slip differential, and tinted glass all around. All 1973 911 S were endowed with the new Type 915 five-speed manual transmission, an aerodynamic front spoiler, 6×15 inch forged Fuchs wheels, aluminum front brake calipers, front and rear anti-roll bars, an upgraded

front fender oil cooler, enhanced instrumentation, and a leather covered steering wheel as standard. Above and beyond the enhanced standard and optional features listed above, this well-ordered 911 S, was specified as a Targa — just one of 925 for that year — for an additional increase of $800 creating the most expensive 911 of its type available in the United States at $10,860.

This 911 S Targa resided in the United States for the first 40 years of its life until it was sold in September 2014 to the United Kingdom. While there, the car is noted to have received restorative work with over 20 pages of parts invoices. At a point, this 911 S was the recipient of a repaint in its factory correct Signal Yellow and currently features upgraded Bosch Rest of World specification headlights and taillights, a rarely seen optional stainless steel muffler skirt, and four, correctly finished 6×15 Fuchs forged alloy wheels. The interior features desirable upgrades as well, notably sport seats with fine corduroy inserts.

More recently in 2016, the car changed hands and relocated to the Atlanta, Georgia area, home to Porsche Cars North America. An initial inspection and maintenance work was carried out at Porsche Classic Atlanta in 2016, and in 2021, a Classic Technical Certificate (CTC) was issued by Hennessey Porsche North Atlanta. In 2022 the car visited Hennessey Porsche and while there a “Major Service” was completed. The engine received a partial reseal and oil change, along with a valve adjustment, new spark plugs, filters, and a fan belt. At the same time, a new MFI fuel pump was installed, the braking system received a flush, and this 911 S was fit with four fresh Vredestein Sprint Classic tires, a four-wheel alignment along with four new center caps and a door adjustment. With a raspy, metallic mechanically injected engine note and the ever-popular long-hood styling, 1973 marks the end of a highly collectible era of 911, particularly in numbers-matching 911 S Targa form with a highly desirable color!
