    Dealer Description:

    The short wheel base early 911S only had a short two-year production run of 1967 and 1968. Most if not all collectors are chasing the 1967 911S because of its first year of production and also 1967 was the only year a short wheel base 911S was brought into the US marketplace. In 1968, US emissions prevented the 911S from coming into the country and we received the 1968 911L instead. The 911L is a very special car and a club racing favorite, but it is not a 911S. In the US the 68 911S is less common and rarer than the 1967 version. This particular 911S is special because it was brought to Southern California less than 2 years after it was sold new in Germany. So, we have that special combination of a non US 1968 911S that spent its life in Southern California and Texas instead of the harsh weather conditions of Europe. Toss in the original German pflegepass booklet with stamps from 1969 and the additional US Porsche service booklets with stamps dating back to 1970 at Dick Barbour Porsche/Audi in San Diego, CA and you can see why this vehicle is a great example and an exceptional value compared to the current pricing trends with the 1967 911S.

    Hmm. So what the dealer is saying is: The 1964,65,66 cars had a different wheelbase. Uhh, I don’t think so. Typical uneducated hyperbole. Please do your homework lest you sound like an ass.

    The statement is accurate. The 67 & 68 were the only 911Ss that were short wheelbase.

    Road Scholars does know these cars. They were clearly referring to the 911S. Short-wheelbase 911S cars were only built for two years.

    That said, they're almost trying to manufacture rarity by scouring for the shortest production run they can attribute.

    They're also glossing over the fact that '68s were transitioning from short-wheelbase to long-wheelbase styling cues and they lack some of the 356 continuity (chrome bezels on green gauges and the flat door cards) that contribute to the short-wheelbase appeal.

    A seemingly obligatory sales technique in almost every air cooled 911 ad I’ve read in the last 4 years.

    Nice car btw.

    Only if read improperly... 911S; not 911s. Please give one of the most revered Porsche sellers in the world a little credit.

    However...

    The umbilical cord is very disturbing:

    Nice nuenelf. Another phrase to add to the lexicon of used car terms; "manufactured rarity". It aptly describes all the 356 speedster parts advertised that will fit any 356A. Or the 911S parts that will work on any T E or S. Great term.

    Either that or the JC Whitney electric door lock actuators?

    Seeing that speaker in the elephant hide makes you want to cry.

    $200k?

    I think not.

    I thought the price was a bit "rich" too. Doesn't seem that special. Also, what is this plate in the door jamb?
