1972 PORSCHE 911 2.4S

This LHD viper green 2.4S has had considerable money spent over the last few years with
virtually every panel, mechanical part and fitment being either replaced, repaired or refurbished. It not only presents beautifully but drives like a 2.4S should. It’s spent most of its life in Italy (1972-1997)and is the desirable “lightweight” specification (no electric windows or sunroof and Porsche leatherette seating). It’s covered less than 2,000 miles since its engine rebuild. Just as 2.7RS prices soar, these rare 2.4S models are also following the trend and represent a great investment opportunity.

The works have included the engine and 5 speed gearbox rebuilt by leading UK marque specialists Gantspeed Engineering Ltd; a complete strip, paint and rebuild carried out by Classic Autosports and Queenswell Coachworks, with new inner and outer sill, door panels, B posts, quarter panels and engine lid and strengthened floors and cross members in front of boot compartment; a bare metal respray in its period Original colour with stone chipped front and rear inner wings; new seals for the windscreen, boots, door and quarter light and some replacement brightwork items; new wiper motor, fuel hoses, batteries and brake master cylinder; new Koni dampers, front struts, bushes and track rod ends; and re-set suspension geometry and tracking.
Originality has been the keynote with earlier refurbishment work in Germany in the late 1990’s to the interior had left the original Porsche steering wheel, instruments and black leather seating untouched. The Original Fuchs wheels (including a spare). Original toolkit and driver’s manual.

Fantastically detailed service history including all invoices for the above works carried out.
The rebuilt engine has been rolling road tested at 208 bhp. This is 18 bhp more than when it was first manufactured in the Stuttgart factory in 1972 and it’s just 2 bhp less than the RS Touring in standard tune.
Porsche quoted the maximum speed as 143 mph making it a direct competitor with the 2.4 litre V6 Ferrari Dino. Standard “S” models weighed 1050 kgs,  A very nice car indeed.
