1973 was the last year for the elegant pre-impact bumper 911. The 2.4S with 190BHP was only 20BHP short of its bigger brother the 2.7RS.
With a 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 145mph, the 2.4S was and still is a hoot to drive.
Finished in Silver metallic this 2.4S is bodily and mechanically excellent. The car was restored in 2006 there is a comprehensive photographic record showing the car before, during and after restoration. Supporting invoices document that the preparation of the body was carried out to a high standard.
On the mechanical side, from when it came into the UK in 1983 upto 2007 the car was serviced and maintained by Autofarm.
In 2014 Specialist Cars of Malton removed and detailed the engine, refurbished the brake system, oil tank and cooler, whilst improving many details on the car.
Since 2015 the car has been under the care of Strasse which has included a complete engine rebuild by David Sutherland (David is highly regarded for his engine knowhow looking after Jack Tordoff’s rally 2.7 and 3.0RS in the day). The car has covered less than 2000 miles since.
Cariconics Ltd sent the car to Fearnsport for inspection and Matt reported that the car was in good condition being particulary impressed with the underside of the car which was free or corrosion and very solid in the known areas of weakness.
The car then went to Nick Fulljames (one of the most internationally respected engineers for early Porsche 911’s) for engine and fuelling setup. Nick reported the engine to be in good health, with the car driving extremely well.
There is a comprehensive file of invoices supporting the continuous servicing and improvement to this lovely Porsche 2.4S, making it the perfect Porsche of this classic era to drive and appreciate.
