The early history of this 911S is not well known other than it was in Washington State early on until approximately 2011 when it was brought to CA and owned by an officer at the Monterey Naval base. The car was acquired by a WA Porsche collector in early 2018 and has been stored in his large private warehouse. In 2019 the current owner took possession and the car has been stored in a private climate controlled facility as he has enjoyed it and sorted through some more needed repairs.

This 911S Targa had major service at Akers Porsche Service in Seattle, where it received a complete MFI fuel injection pump rebuild, distributor rebuild, new batteries fitted, new exhaust muffler, fresh valve adjustment, spark plugs, and some other minor needs attended to. Other recent service work includes rebuilding of all 4 brake calipers, new brake hoses, new air filter, fuel injector cleaning, new battery ground straps, new tie rod ends, fuel filter, and alternator belt. A cylinder compression test was also performed with the following results: 1/135, 2/140, 3/135, 4/140, 5/140, 6/140. A new set of 5 Vredestein Sprint Classic tires have just been installed along with a fresh suspension alignment. Another $20k has been spent by current owner on fully sorting and rehabbing the electrical wiring system on the vehicle. This is a no questions asked, nothing to hide, investment grade collectible automobile.

The body was stripped to bare metal and painted to a high standard at some point. New seals and body gaskets were fitted at that time. All panels and floors are in good condition with no known rust present. The car is finished in show quality Ivory paint, just as it originally rolled off the assembly line! The cars beautiful Fuchs wheels are beautifully restored, and the silver Targa bar looks amazing in contrast to the creamy, dreamy paint scheme. The headlamps are european spec Cibie H4 units and all trim is correct.

The original brown leather interior is very nice showing a lovely light patina. The dash is crack free and features the correct center speaker grill. A functioning, original type Blaupunkt am/fm radio has just been sourced and installed. The carpets, door panels, door pockets and targa top are all in excellent condition. The steering wheel leather has been recovered and new period brown/beige coco floor mats fitted, providing a cool vintage vibe. All gauges function correctly. The heater blows hot with all fan speeds operating well, wipers, and lights are also in good working order.

Included with the sale is a complete, new reproduction tool kit, spare tire, correct original Bilstein jack, owner's manual, original sales brochure, technical spec sheet, MFI repair and tuning manual, Porsche COA which verifies this car as numbers matching and correct original colors. Much has been spent on this 911S to insure that it is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. The car drives excellent and the unique color combination compliments the 1970s era very nicely. This car is incoming shortly to our facility and we will do a thorough inspection, detail and will reshoot the photos to our specifications.
