1973 Porsche 911S Coupe

Now available for auction is this 1973 Porsche 911S finished in Black over a black leatherette interior.  An especially collectible model, this 1973 911S represents the last of the original F-body 911’s as well as the last of the mechanical fuel injection (MFI) cars. This example has recently been refinished in its original color and features some popular upgrades including Bilstein sport shocks, SSI heat exchangers, and Carrera chain tensioners.  Accompanied by the original owner's manuals, tools, and warranty card showing a numbers matching engine, this 911S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.

This 911S is said to have undergone a professional full respray in its factory special-order color of Black (700) within the last six months.  It was color sanded and buffed afterward to achieve the best possible appearance before the car was reassembled with all new door and hood seals as well as new rubber gaskets and chrome trim for the front and rear windows.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  This 911S can be distinguished from standard versions by its aerodynamic spoiler located beneath the front bumper.  Desirable pop-out rear quarter windows are equipped and this example rides on genuine 15” Fuchs wheels that come dressed in new Michelin tires.

Inside, you will find a black leatherette interior that is described to be highly original and with only minor signs of wear and patina.  The original multi-point seatbelts are equipped and the steering wheel is noted to be in fantastic shape.  A period-correct Blaupunkt radio remains in place and the 5-digit odometer currently reads approximately 64k-miles. The seller confirms all gauges to be fully functional along with the wipers, turn signals, and exterior lighting.

This 911S is equipped with its original 2.4L flat-six fuel-injected engine as is confirmed by the case number recorded on the original warranty card.  As much as 190 HP is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. A Carrera chain tensioner upgrade has been installed along with SSI heat exchangers, Bilstein sport rear shock absorbers, and stainless-steel braided brake lines.  After purchasing the car about a year ago, the seller brought this 911S to Precision Motion in Riverside, CA, to undergo an inspection, oil change, and installation of new spark plugs.

This sale will include a set of multiple keys, the original owner’s manuals, warranty card, toolkit, and a clean title. For any vintage Porsche collector, this highly sought-after 1973 911S makes an excellent choice.

    I contacted seller via email and was told they would post pics of any areas of rust..

  • utopify (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @jef777 That seems to be just normal age, with a patch of black paint in the middle remaining. That rear engine support/brace is not only easily replaced or repainted, its a fairly thick piece, so any surface rust or wear can be addressed. I don't see any reason for photo 54 to be a concern.

  • Nikolai (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @wholesalecalifornia typical values for a good engine is between 150-175psi. According to the Porsche technical specifications book the minimum acceptable is 9 KP/Cm2 or 128PSI so all cylinders are below minimum spec. The test needs to be done with the engine at least 60c read on the oil temp gauge, so warmed up to get the most accurate numbers. But with an even lower first test I suspect the first test might have been cold and the second test warm since there was an improvement in the second test.

  • wholesalecalifornia (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @Nikolai My mechanic who did the test seemed to think it was in spec.

  • Nikolai (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Really great shape. Does the seller have any explanation why compression is so low? With numbers like that it appears to be due for a rebuild.

  • Azmurciev12 (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @jeff777 good catch and good question.

  • jeff777 1 week, 5 daysago

    sorry, pic 58....upper left corner....is that a rusted out area?

  • VoltageGSR (registered bidder) 2 weeksago

    @VoltageGSR Sorry delete the question about paint work. Rust repair or rust underneath?

  • VoltageGSR (registered bidder) 2 weeksago

    Oil leaks? Areas of rust? Previous paint work/accidents? Can you upload a Carfax. Thanks!

  • jeff777 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    pic 54...is that a rusted out area on left of pic?

  • 7Diamonds (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    kindly advise if you have a COA TY

  • wholesalecalifornia (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    @brettsf I forgot it was listed there but I have taken it down so this should no longer be an issue for the auction. Thank you finding the issue.
