About

1975 Porsche 911S

If ever there was a perennial sports car, it would be the Porsche 911. The 911 has been in production for over 50 years and while today’s cars may be just a silhouette of the original, the spirit of the 1964 911 lives on today. Porsche’s philosophy has always been to continuously refine and develop their cars to get the maximum performance out of the platform. The 911 is perhaps the best example of that formula. The 911 started life as a lightweight coupe with a 2.0L, air-cooled flat six hung out back.

Today’s 911s have 4.0 liter engines, all-wheel drive, coupe, cabriolet and Targa bodies, turbos, hardcore track versions, and so on. As the 911 grew in popularity, it also gained a bit of a reputation for wayward handling at the limit, particularly in the hands of a less-than-skilled driver.

So in 1969, the 911 underwent its first major overhaul. The wheelbase was lengthened by 2.4 inches and larger wheels and tires were fitted for added stability and grip. The longer wheelbase 911 became a sensation and, while still a handful in the wrong hands, it was much more capable overall. The Targa, which previously had a zip-out rear window, now had a fixed glass rear window making the car much more rigid and civilized on the highway. 1970 saw the introduction of the sweet 2.2 liter engine. At this point, the 911 was available in three basic trim levels – T (carbureted) E (einspritzung, or fuel injection) and the S sports model. Starting with 1974 models, an increasing number of panels were galvanized and by the introduction of the ’76 model all body panels were Thyssen double sided galvanized steel except the roof, by the end on the MY76 run even the roof was galvanized.

Today, these are now among the most coveted of all the regular production 911s.

Model presented

This 1975 911S is a quality example of Porsche’s iconic sports car. Chestnut-brown paint contrasts with an excellent tan leather interior. Receipts for the entire life of the car are present include past mechanical restoration work by noted California Porsche specialist.

The corrosion and accident-free, sunroof-delete body is in exceptional condition and all of the rubber seals are supple and properly fitted. Panel fit and bodywork, along with chrome and anodized trim, are all in beautiful condition, with excellent deco rubbers all around.

Inside the familiar 911 cockpit, correct original seats and carpets grab your attention. The dash, door cards and fittings are also in excellent, original condition. The cabin remains true to original with the exception of a modern audio system upgrade. The engine bay is stock clean and of course, this 911S performs as you would expect.

The original Fuchs wheels are shod with four new Pirelli tires and the handling is precise and direct. The 2.7 liter engine pulls beautifully; emitting that addicting air-cooled flat-six soundtrack. The 5-speed gearbox is tight and precise, and the car simply performs up to the standard set by its looks.

Seventies 911s are now highly prized by collectors and this Californian survivor is surely one of the fine examples of the breed available today.
