The Porsche 911 2.0 S coupé

Building on the already-impressive Porsche 911 platform, the new 160-horsepower “S,” introduced for 1967, featured a higher-compression (9.8:1) engine with larger valves, forged light-alloy pistons on forged and nitrided connecting rods, a revised exhaust system, and a pair of 40-millimeter Weber triple-throat downdraft carburetors. The new 911 S came standard with new 4.5-by-15-inch Fuchs lightweight forged alloy wheels, Koni shock absorbers, ventilated brake discs, a larger-diameter front anti-roll bar, and a new rear anti-roll bar. Porsche added some additional distinctive trim to the body, while the engineers also managed to trim its weight. The earliest of 911 S examples, like the one offered here, were configured with a Weber IDA “S” carburetor assembly—Weber had not yet finished development of the IDS system, and so Porsche distinctively modified their jetting and marked remaining IDA assemblies with an “S” stamp to designate their use.

Capable of 140 mph, this new 911 S would become the benchmark for precision-built, well-equipped, and moderately priced sports cars. Due to more stringent emissions regulations, Porsche was hesitant to send S models to the United States for 1968, the last year of the short-wheelbase chassis. As such, examples that did make it to the North American market are both rare and desired by marque enthusiasts.

The Porsche 911 2.0 S coupé we are offering here is chassis 119300063 and was supplied new by official french importer Sonauto, on October 1968 to M. Ghubly. The car is finished in factory-correct Polorot with black leatherette interior, as delivered in period. This eye-catching example has benefited from a ground-up restoration by marque experts Ravé Classics in the Paris area, on the occasion of the 2017 Porsche Classic Concours, organized by the official French Porsche network distributors. Coming with its well documented restoration dossier, no expenses were spared to make this example a true jewel in every respect. Further on the car had benefited from a maintenance program including Porsche specialist Crubilé sport and Ravé. Since the restoration the car has covered a mere 8.300 km. It is supplied with its additional French yellow lights, spare keys and owner’s manual.
Ready to be enjoyed, exceptionally well balanced throughout, this beautiful example of the iconic 911 2.0 S comes with French registration documents.
