Thread: Where are all these 2.4 S now? Here are some stats.

  1. #1

    Where are all these 2.4 S now? Here are some stats.

    As some of you may also do, I'm keeping a sort of private registry of some cars on which I have a personal interest / fondness. As far as this very registry is concerned, I realised that I'm keeping track of more than 500 1972 and 1973 2.4S (521 as of tonite, to be precise).

    So, I was curious to know where these prized cars are gone nowadays and I believe that this number have a certain statistical relevance (it's about 1/6 of the total production).

    Here are some graphs I have developed, I hope you will find them interesting and I'm looking forward your comments.

    Hi, Are you searching for certain vin numbers or trying to keep track of all of them? I have a 1972S.

    Hi Biancaneve,

    Thanks for these stats, pretty interesting. The distributions between 72 and 73 cars looks pretty different (especially the US exposure). Just a question, what is the split between 72 and 73 cars of the 521 you have in your database?
    Another interesting thing would have been the same charts but taking in account the origin of each cars. But it is surely not easy to have these data for each 521 cars.
    Thank you.

    David

    Thanks for your comments, guys!

    I'm trying to keep track of as many as VIN numbers I can, coupe' only (maybe this element was not really mentioned before).

    Distribution: 1972: 277 ; 1973: 244. My guess is that the difference (lots more cars in the US for 1973 compared to 1972) is mainly due to the fact that the 2.7RS was not available in USA in 1973 so the 2.4S still represented the top model for this market. In this respect, I have no definitive information on the delivery for each market which could be an interesting complementary datum to describe how we ended up in the current situation. I have of course some info on the place of origin but not for all of them.
    Another interesting analysis could be on colors, but that would need some extra work ...

    I guess that we should share some data. I am interested in collecting data on ALL 911 & 912 through 1973.

    In case you don't have it, 9113300021 was sold in US but now resides in UK. Originally silver, it turned black before my ownership. Shown registered at the same address in 1974 that was listed when sold in 2012. Assume the same owner but not validated!
