The Porsche 911 is perhaps one of automotive histories longest running models. As a result, it is also a car that is continually reengineered, redeveloped, and improved upon generation after generation, all while keeping the classic line and experience of the famed 911 intact. One example of this car, produced in 1972 will be offered at Auctions America Auburn Spring sale on May 9, 2015. It is estimated to fetch $160,000 – $180,000.
This example, Chassis # 9112310569, according to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity was delivered new as Silver Metallic (8080) over Black Leatherette, the same combination it currently wears. The options recorded were an antenna with loudspeaker and noise suppression, air conditioning, and tinted glass all around. Service records date back to possible first owner, a Mr. James Ruth of Berkley California in 1974 and 1975 when he took the car in and replaced the alternator, air conditioner belt, and having two new batteries installed, with recorded millage of 45,000.
Later the car passed through few hands and was upgraded during the years.
Complete with original books, tools, jack, spare, and Porsche COA accompanying the sale, it’s a great example and everything a 2.4 911S is supposed to be.
