In 1970, Porsche increased the capacity of the successful 911 range to 2165cc. Specific to the S model was a re-profiled camshaft, larger valves, better porting, higher compression and larger jets for the Weber carburetors. The S version was now producing 180bhp and the model was well underway in establishing Porsche as a world leader in the production of sports cars and motorsport. From club racers to World Championships the 911 would become an integral part. The 911S would be the basic underpinnings of the 911 2.7 RS; a platform that would provide successes at the Targa Floria, Daytona, Sebring, and the Nurburgring all by the mid-Seventies.

Finished in the rarest and very period colour of Grey White (Weissgrau) with black interior this beautiful 911S has been restored to a very high standard. It was originally supplied new in Germany by Porsche dealer, Gottfried Schultz, where it remained until the 1990s when it was purchased by a Dutch collector. The restoration,at some stage, included the replacement of the engine case of the correct type 911 / 02, signifying a 1970/71 2.2S. It is also stamped ‘AT' which indicates it is a factory replacement and bears the engine no. 6302110 which is confirmed as the original matching engine number. The factory also confirms that it had the following options; limited slip differential, electric windows and tinted glass.  It was imported into the UK in 2005 and has had only three owners since. The history file contains evidence of service work by various UK Porsche specialists and evidence of its earlier history.

Works driver, Vic Elford, was a fan of the free revving 2.2S and in this condition it makes a great investment with a lot of 'fun to boot'.
