    Auction Description:


    This Porsche Targa 911 is steeped Berluti savoir-faire, with the Maison expertise expressed in an extensive customisation that still respects the original design. Upholstery, sheathing and patina coordinate beautifully in this one-of-a-kind vehicle; it also comes with special accessories, including a pair of driving shoes and a weekend bag, all essentials for any car enthusiast. The car is being sold with a complimentary bag and pair of shoes.


    • 2.4S engine: Air-cooled flat six-cylinder. 2.4 litre mechanical Fuel injection. 190hp.
    • Amongst the most desirable of the early Porsche 911s must certainly be the 1973 911 S 2.4-litre, the final production year of the elegant long-bonnet/narrow bumper F-series, along with the ’73-only Carrera RS.
    • Despite the increased displacement of the 2.7-litre RS, this 2.4-litre S shares many of the same features of the 2.7, such as the new and stronger 915 gearbox, light aluminium brake callipers, a front-mounted oil cooler, and the optional 85-litre plastic fuel tank that was only found in the RS.
    • Of course, the quality and performance of the 2.4 S in relation to price of the 2.7 RS makes this an unbeatable opportunity.
    • The 1973 911 saw the old Type 901 “dog-leg” transmission replaced by the stronger Type 915, which utilized a standard “H” shift pattern. Contemporary road tests demonstrated that the new 911 S was capable of a 0–60 sprint in just 7.8 seconds. It could cover a standing quarter mile in 16.3 seconds and top out at 142 miles an hour. This was dazzling performance for an otherwise very tractable street car of that period. Befitting its high-performance capability, the ’73 S was equipped with a special front valance to help control airflow beneath the chassis.
    • The first fully customized car created by Berluti. All work performed in France with the combined savoir-faire of Berluti’s colourists and an expert upholsterer.

    Noteworthy interior customization details:
    • Leather-trimmed dashboard with open seam and double top-stitching
    • Bouclé wool floor mats with English-style border
    • Venezia patinated leather driver heel pad
    • Hand-stitched leather-sheathed gear shift knob
    • Targa roof in alpaca with leather headliner with fold seams
    • Front boot interior and engine compartment trim in Venezia leather
    • “Berluti Paris” signature on glove compartment door. “B” logo on steering wheel and key fob.


    The large model of the Jour-Off bag is a natural companion for weekend excursions. Though its dimensions easily carry most of your personal belongings, its compact design, numerous pockets, lightweight and flexible design, along with a removable shoulder strap, make it an ideal travel companion.

    Outer features: One zipped flat pocket; Double metal zipped closure; One hidden key cover and 1 padlock; Strap included
    Inner features: Two flat pockets, One zipped pocket
    Material: Venezia Gloria Calf Leather / Microfibre Lining
    Colour: Tobacco Bis
    Hardware: Brass hardware with 'antic silver' finish
    Dimensions: 30 by 56 by 24 cm


    The Lunare last borrows and reinterprets the longer lines of the Saturnin to offer these elegantly refined, streamlined driving shoes. Berluti is boldly innovative in its reinterpretation of this menswear classic. Inspired by motorsport legend Enzo Ferrari, the retro, sleek look of these driving shoes recalls those worn by racing drivers in the 1950s. Single piece of leather on the lower section. Hand-stitched upper.

    Material: Venezia Leather
    Color: Tobacco Bis
    Size: 8,5
    Sole: Sole Injected with rubber spikes
    Shoetrees: No

    BaT Description:

    This 1972 Porsche 911S remained with its original owner until being purchased from an estate sale for the current owner’s collection in 2015. Finished in Silver Metallic over black leather, the car is powered by a fuel-injected 2.4L flat-six paired with a Type 915 5-speed manual transaxle. Service in the last two years has included an interior refurbishment, a new fuel pump, suspension and brake work, a valve adjustment, and refreshing the air conditioning system. This 911S is part of the 25-vehicle, single-owner collection currently featured on BaT. It is now offered at no reserve in New Jersey with service records from the last four years, an owner’s manual, a tool kit, and a clean Maryland title.

    The body is finished in Metallic Silver (936) and received a repaint in 2016. The rear deck lid grille, wiper arms, and rear badges were media blasted and powder coated in semi-gloss black in 2017, and a new “2.4” badge was also added. The windshield, rear window, and quarter window seals were replaced in 2017. Note the 1972-only oil filler door on the passenger-side rear fender. Factory 15″ Fuchs alloys are mounted with Pirelli P6000 tires. Suspension work in October 2017 included installing new Bilstein front struts and rear shocks, and replacing the sway bar mount and linkage bushings. The front brake calipers were also rebuilt at that time, and new brake hoses were installed. An alignment was completed in June 2018.

    The interior was refreshed in 2017 by Bayside Inc. of Farmingdale, New Jersey. Work included fitting the front seats with new foam and reupholstering them with new black leather. The rear seats, door panels, and side panels were also recovered in black leather, and new charcoal carpets were installed. The dash and door armrests were repaired and dyed blue, and a new ivory vinyl headliner was fitted. Seat hardware was cleaned and lubricated. The 5-digit odometer shows approximately 62k miles, less than 1,000 of which have been added while the car has been in the current owner’s collection. The air conditioning system was overhauled in 2017 with a new compressor, expansion valve, receiver drier, hoses, and temperature switch.

    The 2.4-liter flat-six features mechanical fuel injection and produced 190 horsepower at 6,500 rpm when new. Work completed in June 2018 at Vantage Motors in Stamford, Connecticut included adjusting the valves and replacing the valve cover gaskets. A new fuel pump was installed in December 2017, and the points were replaced in October 2017. Engine number *6329145* is shown above, with the first three digits designating an S engine for 1972. Shifting is through a 915 5-speed manual transaxle, and number 7331596 is shown in the gallery below. The shifter assembly was rebuilt with new bushings in 2017. Corrosion is noted on some areas of the underside.

    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.
