    FS: 1967 Porsche 911S with sun-roof Rare 1st year 1 of 523 Silver / Black Restored

    1967 Porsche 911S with sun-roof



    Very Rare 1967 Porsche 911S with sun-roof in a stunning Silver with Black Leatherette Coupe with Fuchs Wheels for sell.



    Restored



    First Year, first-generation 911S

    Weber-carbureted 2.0L/160 HP flat-6 that characterized the S model along with Koni front struts and rear shocks, ventilated disc brakes and polished Fuchs wheels wrapped in brand new tires. Original seats and interior. More recently, the Porsche has received full cosmetic and mechanical attention by Porsche professionals at Anaheim, CA, and included a major tune-up, overhaul and setup of the Weber carburetors and distributor. The body received a wet sanding and buffing, further enhancing the coupe's paint finish. New glass paint finished in 2018. Great features of the 911S include a 5-speed transmission, Weber carburetors, electric sunroof, driving lights, original radio, and a set of five matching Fuchs alloy wheels.





    In 1966, Porsche introduced the more powerful 911S with Type 901/02 engine producing 160 PS (120 kW; 160 hp) in Europe Came to United States in 1967. Forged aluminum alloy wheels from Fuchs, with a 5-spoke design, were offered for the first time.



    It wasn’t until 1966 that Porsche addressed the relative lack of performance with the 911S. Forged alloy pistons helped lift the power output to 160 hp (119 kW) which brought an incremental improvement to the performance, while Fuchs alloy wheel and vented disc brakes meant it could be taken straight out on the track.



    The 911S was followed by faster models with more glorious competition records, so it was largely ignored by collectors for decades. But in the last few years, as prices for the iconic 2.7 Carrera RS have rocketed, collectors have come back around to it. And the one you see here is among the very best examples in the world.



    In 1967 Porsche expanded the model range with the 911S. This really marked the beginning of the 911 as a genuine performance car, both on the street and the racetrack. This was also the first year for the Targa. 1968 marked the beginning of government influence on automobile design and emissions, such that Porsche was afraid the 1968 S might not meet emission standards and opted not to market it in the US. In retrospect it probably would have passed, but Porsche could not take the chance of having to ship large numbers of cars back to Germany. Porsche also brought out the Sportomatic transmission in 1968. The semi-automatic gearbox was an attempt to broaden the appeal of the car to those who didn’t like using a clutch.



    Perfect for investment.

    I will go out on a limb and speculate that the engine is not original to that car.

    I'm usually not a nit-picker, but at $200,000, it would be nice if it had windshield wipers.

    Living in Southern California, I've found that wipers are more often than not more of a pain than they are useful. I'd take the off my car as well if it were me.
    Porsche taste on a Volkswagen budget...

    It always tells me a lot when I see rivets like the used ones and instead the story about the particular car for sale I get a copy-paste refresh in 911 history...

    Amateur attempt at restoration with wrong motor, seats, steering wheel, radio and wheels. Doubtful will sell for anything remotely close to asking price!
