Dr. Ferry Porsche was quoted as saying “racing is the ultimate test.” Porsche proudly used the greatest race courses in the world as their proving grounds and have won countless titles over the years. These successes have confirmed that Porsche does not race to make their name; they race to build the proper sports car.

It is not surprising that this type of design and build philosophy garnered the 1971 Porsche 911 the honor of being named one of the “Ten Best Cars in the World” by Road and Track magazine in their August 1971 issue. They were quick to shower acclaim on the car's lightness of steering, the directness of the machinery, the ease of the gearshifts, the solid feel of the platform and the no-nonsense layout of the interior that utilizes “perfectly contoured seats and controls that are designed for maximum efficiency in driving.”

This 911S underwent a three-year full rotisserie restoration, starting with a very straight car with rust free floor pans. The car was stripped and repainted in its original Porsche Light Yellow. Correct body schutz undercoating was applied. Brake lines and fuel lines were replaced, while the fuel tank was cleaned and resealed. Instrumentation was sent to a marque specialist for restoration, and a period correct Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio was restored and installed.

Shocks, brakes, and suspension components were all restored or replaced with Porsche OEM parts. Proper plating techniques were used throughout. The engine received new heads and pistons, and an upgraded OEM chain tensioner was installed for longevity. The 911S fuel injection was rebuilt by MFI specialist 911 Vintage Parts. No expense was spared in the rebuild including stainless steel heat exchangers and exhaust. The 915 transmission was also restored and a new clutch and pressure plate were installed.

The result is a stunning early 911 in a desirable and attractive color. These early 911s provide one of the quintessential sports car driving experiences – something every enthusiast should experience.
