The car is in good condition. The bodywork has been restored before the current owner bought the car. The bodywork looks good, the paint quality is good, as well as the alignments. The restoration is documented. The interior is original. The seats are in very good condition.
In mechanics, this car has always been well followed. It just came out of a major overhaul, and among the recent expenses (2017) is a partial rebuild of the engine with notably the valve guides and piston liners change. The car works very well. It takes its turns well, as a 2.4S should do.
This 2.4S is visible in our premises. Trade-in and financing possible.

The very first 911 made its debut at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show under the name Type 901. As the successor to the Porsche 356, it was an instant success among sports car enthusiasts.
In order to find the name of the new model, Porsche referred to the Volkswagen spare parts numbering system for future cooperation between the two groups. One year later, the Type 901 abandoned its prototype status and was presented under the definitive name 901. This was without counting on the intervention of Peugeot, which saw this name as an infringement of its intellectual property, since Peugeot justified its use since 1929 of a 3-digit numbering with a 0 in the middle. In November 1964, Ferry Porsche finally decided to call it 911, for practical and other reasons. The car was initially marketed with a 130 hp 2-litre, then a 160 hp S version in 1966. The range gradually developed with the appearance of the T and E models in 1968. In 1967, Porsche will offer the Targa versions with their convertible roof and the famous chrome roll bar. The first versions (up to 1968) were offered in soft window, a solution that was later abandoned in favour of a hard bezel.
In 1969, Porsche increased the displacement of its flat 6 to 2.2 litres, again with the three models T (125 hp), E (155 hp) and S (180 hp). The E and S were with Bosch mechanical injection, the T keeping the Zenith carburettors (identical to the 2.01). The 2.2 was abandoned in 1972 in favour of the 2.4 litre, keeping the three denominations T (140 hp), E (165 hp) and S (190 hp). The year 1973 will also be marked by the appearance of the mythical 2.7 RS (210 hp) with its duck tail.
The first 911 2.4 (AM72) can be recognized by their chrome turn signal surrounds and especially their oil trap door on the right rear wing. Oil trap door which was abandoned on the AM73, its location being misleading for some…LAM73 is also characterized by the black turn signal surrounds.
