    The Porsche 911 is perhaps the most timeless sports car design in motoring history. It dominated its class as soon as it was launched in September 1963, went on to ever greater success, and today, albeit very much modified and developed, it still attracts adulation from enthusiasts and motoring press alike.

    This unconventional and charismatic car evolved at an astonishing pace in its early life, with significant developments occurring virtually annually during the late sixties and early seventies. One of the most significant years for 911 development was 1972, the year in which this example was made. There was a notable increase in capacity to 2,341cc, and power rose by 10bhp to 165bhp in this 'E' model, offered today. The wheelbase was further lengthened and the shock absorbers altered, aiding high speed stability, and reducing front end lift.

    Today's offering is one of the few remaining early 911s, now greatly sought-after and fetching high prices whenever they come to market and we are pleased to be offering such a very genuine specimen at today's auction.

    This example was delivered on 14th October 1965 to a Porsche dealer in San Antonio, California USA, where it spent most of its life until it was re-imported to Germany in 2008, still carrying its Californian black registration tags, a pleasing sign to connoisseurs of extended continuous ownership.

    Its engine, which, unusually and desirably matches the VIN number, was completely overhauled in 2010, and the motor car then underwent a degree of light restoration with the intention of retaining as much as possible of its patina and originality. Coachwork was refinished in a subtle shade of Morocco brown, very suitable to the car's period. We are informed by the vendor that it drives well and, importantly, 'as a Porsche should'. Most importantly 302577 comes with a Porsche 'birth certificate', a certificate demonstrating its genuineness, its matching serial numbers and the aforementioned description by the present vendor. This very early and rare Porsche gem is certainly a good candidate to grace any serious collection of fine Porsches and without question not one to be missed.

    Dieser frühe Porsche 911 ist einer der wenigen noch existierenden und zweifelsfrei ein gesuchtes Sammlerstück. Er wurde als Neuwagen am 14. Oktober 1965 an einen Porsche Händler in San Antonio
    Kalifornien ausgeliefert und im Jahr 2008 nach Deutschland re-importiert. Dort wurde im Jahr 2010 sein nummerngleicher ( matching no. ) Motor sorfältig überholt und der Rest des Wagens erfuhr eine leichte Restaurierung um möglichst viel Originalität zu erhalten. Der Einlieferer hat uns informiert, dass der Wagen nicht nur ausgezeichnet fährt, sondern auch die wichtige Porsche Geburtsurkunde besitzt, welche seine Angaben über dieses Fahrzeug bestätigt.

    I saw this car last saturday - original color is Aga Blue. Also the redone interior has to be de-browned.

    I know the owner, so maybe for the real interested people I can get more details (no affiliation)

    Auction Description:

    •Much sought after 1st Series 'Short Wheel Base' model
    •Original 'Aga-blue' livery from new
    •Matching numbers
    •Restored to concours standard at no expense spared
    •Techno Classica award-winner in 2019
    •Eligible for numerous prestigious events

    This desirable 1st Series (pre-A Programme) Porsche 911 was delivered new on 14th October 1965 to P.C. Southwest in San Antonio, USA as confirmed by its accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Chassis number '302577' is one of the early, short-wheelbase cars of the type much favoured by the historic rallying fraternity, a situation that has led to unmodified examples such as this one becoming a great rarity and consequently much in demand.

    In 2006 the car was brought back to Germany and in 2015 was bought by the current vendor, a Porsche collector, who commissioned a full restoration with no corners cut. Undertaken by Dutch specialists, the rebuild took two years to complete and was photographically documented (see history file). This restoration included a full engine and gearbox rebuild, a six-coat re-spray in the original Aga Blue livery, re-chroming of the brightwork, a new interior in Pepita, and an overhaul of the instruments. The body restoration was carried out by Garage Houwers of Winterswijk, while the matching engine and gearbox were rebuilt by Koban Tuning of Lichtenvoorde, Holland. Closest attention to detail was taken to bring everything back to original specification, even down to the tinted windows and the original Blaupunkt radio. In total, some €140,000 were spent to return the car to the almost 'as new' condition it is presented in today, with many invoices available. Only some 100 kilometres have been covered since the restoration's completion and this beautiful Porsche 911 is presented in commensurately excellent condition. Indeed, in 2019 at Techno Classica, Essen this car's fine quality was recognised by a concours award from the organisers, SIHA (trophy included in sale). The car is offered with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirming 'matching numbers', German registration papers and the aforementioned restoration records.
