The original Porsche 911, with its famous and durable design, was introduced in the Autumn of 1963 and built until 1989. From its inception, the 911 was modified both by private racing teams and the Porsche factory itself for racing, rallying and other competitions. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful sports/racing car ever, especially when its variations included the powerful 911 derived 935 which won Le Mans, as well as other major sports cars races. In 1967, Porsche introduced the 911T model and subsequently a 911E version, however the 911S was the most desirable and with only 3,174 Porsche 911S's manufactured, good quality surviving examples are rare and highly collectable.
This original, low mileage and well preserved classic, fuel injected, Porsche 911 2.7 S is finished in vibrant red coachwork together with a beautiful black interior and red stitching. The car had been lovingly owned, from new, by Captain Bob Stanell in California, due to ill health he sold his collection in late 2015. Presented with just 35,521 miles on the odometer and accompanied by a comprehensively stamped and original service booklet, this car was snapped up by our vendor who wanted a dry, rust free, low mileage example for his collection, thus OBA 598P found its way to the leafy Surrey suburbs. Our vendor has since lavished circa £15,000 with specialist Eporsch in Bisley, Surrey, predominantly on mechanical work which enabled the car to be returned to European specification and included a top end engine rebuild. All invoices for the work can be found within the cars history file which also includes the invoice for the most recent service in November 2017. This example is a true reflection of its low mileage and, indeed, is a very desirable 911S. The interior is as new and the targa roof has been restored. The car represents a genuine collectors example competitively priced with fabulous coachwork.
Guide Price £34,000 - £42,000]]
