The 1970 911 S displays the steady improvement that Porsche imparted to its highest-performance sports car. The wheelbase of the 911 had been extended by some 2.5 inches the year before, providing better balance and handling. With its engine output now increased to a potent 180 horsepower, thanks to larger valves and better breathing, a larger, 225-millimeter clutch was required. Interior fittings were upgraded as well, with a new steering wheel lock and instruments now mounted in rubber rings. Externally, new door handles of a safer design replaced the earlier pushbutton type, and the cars were delivered with full factory undercoating for the first time. Stopping power was provided by 11.1-inch ventilated front and 11.4-inch ventilated rear disc brakes, which proved more than enough for a 2,400-pound car. It was also capable of accelerating to 60 mph from a standstill in just over seven seconds, 100 mph in just 20 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 144 mph. Few cars of its day were capable of matching its exhilarating performance.
It would be difficult to find a nicer 1970 Porsche 911 S than the example presented here, the 1643 st of only 1,744 built for the 1970 model year.. It was discovered by the previus owners complete and undamaged in a North Italian garage, where it remained for 20 years. Soon after purchase, it was completely stripped to a bare tub and rebuilt to factory specifications over a two-year period by a renowned marque specialist. The work included a high-quality repaint in the car’s original 018 tangerine, while the suspension and other components were powder-coated. The interior was in preserved condition like Porsche made in 1970, the aluminum trim was polished, and the original tinted glass was reinstalled.
Mechanically, the original, matching-numbers, 2,195-cubic centimeter Type 911/02 flat-six engine and Type 911/01 transaxle were completely overhauled, and the engine compartment was detailed to its factory appearance. The 6x15 Fuchs forged alloy wheels were polished and repainted, and suspension parts, such as the shock absorbers, tie-rod ends, ball joints, and bushings, were replaced, as needed, with correct new parts.
This fine example of a highly sought-after model is supplied with its correct spare tire and wheel, tool kit, owner’s manual, and photographic file of renovation.
