Designed by Dr Ferry Porsche's eldest son, Ferdinand 'Butzi' Porsche, and the company's joint founder and chief body engineer Erwin Komenda, the 911 was initially powered by a dry-sump, air-cooled, 2-litre, flat-six engine which was overhung at the rear and allied to a five-speed manual transmission. In 1968, the 911's wheelbase was increased by 57mm, and the rear overhang reduced by the same amount. Engine capacity increased in stages over the years to 2.2, 2.4 and, by 1973, 2.7 litres. As fitted to the 911S this developed 175bhp at 5,800rpm - an output reputedly sufficient for 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds and 142mph.
This matching numbers LHD example registers just c.70,000 miles and has recently been treated to a quality repaint together with refurbishment of the cookie cutter wheels. Routine servicing and various mechanical works have also been attended to. The car benefits from the desirable options of a factory sunroof, air-conditioning and rear spoiler, and is described as having excellent bodywork, paintwork, transmission and grey leather interior with very good engine and electrics. The vendor advises it retains its original floorpans, has never been welded and is accompanied by a comprehensive Porsche history from 12,000 miles, over £7,000 of receipts for recent expenditure, Swansea V5 document and MoT to September 2017.
