Sports Purpose - 1967 Porsche 911S

New Arrival - 1967 Porsche 911S

In 1967 Porsche released the first “S” example of the venerable 911. Setting the stage for all subsequent S and RS models over the next 50+ years, the recipe was simple to follow:  Add power, remove weight, and enhance handling. 

The 911S achieved this through the tweaking of the 2.0L 6 cylinder engine to produce 160hp, a healthy jump from the base 911 at 130hp. Ventilated brakes were added at all four corners (rare in 1967), and for the first time, the iconic Fuchs wheels were offered as standard on the Porsche 911. Front sway bar diameter was increased, and a new rear sway bar was factory installed to sharpen the handling on the 911S.

Porsche 911 based cars have a history of blurring the line between road and race examples. The factory themselves delivered numerous publications to help owners convert and upgrade their personal cars for the local rallies, hillclimbs, and racing events in the 1960s and 1970s. This was the true “sports-purpose” look that many 911s have seen and enjoyed over the years. This car was restored from the ground up with a bit of both street and race – the essence of the weekend gentleman racer in our opinion.

The tasteful modifications on our car here are all reversible as desired for the next caretaker. Many of the original parts are included with the car upon sale, and where they are not, the parts are readily available in the current market.

This wonderful numbers matching 1967 Porsche 911S is fresh from a multi-year restoration, having just covered 500 miles. It is now sorted and ready for a new caretaker to use and enjoy the subtle upgrades to one of the most desirable early Porsche 911s.

This 1967 Porsche 911S is available now for inspection and purchase in Issaquah, WA. You can see a full set of photos and all details here - 1967 Porsche 911S

Warm Regards,
Jason
