Built in small numbers for racing between 1970 and 1971, the Porsche 911 S/T was built to capitalize on new FIA regulations and saw success competing at the Sebring 12 Hours, 1000 km Nürburgring, Targa Florio, and Daytona 6 Hours. One of 43 examples produced in total, this 1970 Porsche 911 S/T is equipped with a 2.2-liter engine and is among fewer than 10 featuring a narrow bodyshell from the factory. It was special-ordered and originally delivered by the Hahn dealership in Stuttgart, Germany, and is claimed to be the sole example finished in Silver Metallic. After making its way to Canada in the 1980s, this 911 S/T was acquired by the seller in 2014 and subsequently restored over the next two years before making appearances at the Porsche Parade in Jay Peak as well as the 2023 Toronto Auto Show for the 75 anniversary of Porsche. One of the rarest and most historic Porsche racing cars of all, this numbers-matching 911 S/T is now being offered for auction out of Quebec.
To maximize weight savings, the 911 S/T was constructed with thinner-gauge steel for the roof and floorpans as well as Plexiglas side windows. The underbody is also devoid of a protective coating as seen on standard road cars. This example was refinished in its original Silver Metallic (8080) color during the bare-metal restoration and features yellow-tinted headlamps, hood and decklid straps, exposed torsion bars, a lightweight decklid grille, and black Porsche graphics. It rides on 15” Fuchs wheels dressed in classic Michelin XWX tires. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The 911 S/T’s spartan cockpit includes a pair of Recaro sport seats with cloth centers as well as lightweight felt carpeting and basic door panels with pull straps. The S/T came without rear seats, a glovebox door, seat slide supports, sun visors, or soundproofing. This example also includes a receiver for a roll bar as well as an optional gas heater. The seller indicates the cabin has been restored to its factory appearance with all original gauges remaining fully functional.
This 911 S/T is equipped with its original 2.2-liter flat-six engine and mechanical fuel injection (MFI) system as well as a number’s matching 5-speed manual gearbox. Factory performance modifications include upgraded ventilated disc brakes and transverse bars linking the strut towers. The seller reports the original engine, transmission, MFI unit, and mechanicals were rebuilt during the restoration using OEM parts, and the factory-equipped headers remain installed.
This sale will include documentation and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I have owned this car for 10 years, we did a bared metal restoration, and everything is new or as new. It is one of the rarest Porsches ever made.”

I bought a 996 GT2 from the seller and couldn't be happier. He did an amazing job on the rebuild and have to believe his attention to detail would be the same with this vehicle.
@suitcase and it is legit, thanks for your 'connesseur' comment
@Damaho912 If it is legit....this is a serious collectable 911. Not surprised by the $625 ask. $385 is not enough. And just wait until Porsche introduces the new (behemoth) 992 S/T and educates everyone in existence.
That's because the ask is nuts....
One can only hope

All that effort and expense on this vehicle and some "unknowing" mechanic fits the Oil Sump Plate in the wrong position (photo 61) ???
@jcbfff We posted the VIN number, engine number on Early S forum and somebody in Texas
wrote on the forum that he has our engine case, we had the case shipped to Ed Mayo who is a well known sprcialist of air cooled 911, he did a complete inspection and confirmed authenticity and condition, we made a deal and redid engine with original case, every parts of engine is correct dated factory part. COA is available and yes it is a Quebec, Canadian title. thanks
wow! probably one of the rarest long hoods I've seen in an online auction. @rivardrene I read the letter in image 79, how did the car come to be reunited with the original motor? The letter also references a COA but there is no image of it here? I assume its registered in Quebec with documents written in French?
@Yopurp No problem, anymore question or info, just ask.
@Yopurp never mind. I’m not used to where the photos are on this site. I see the article. This is the one buried under a 935 body kit. Sorry for the question you already answered.
If this is a real S/T I would expect the listing to provide a ton of documentation on this particular car. These are unicorns and almost always very well documented from new by notable Porsche historians. Where is that information provided?
@ELV The 7mm metal sheet was only for the top and for the rear seat metal base.
All other body parts was regular 911 body parts.
Our ST , still have original roof top and rear metal sheet.
Bid in the amount of $150,000
Beautiful car... during the restoration were you able to source S/T body panels for the front and rear quarter panels or are these the same as regular 911's of the same era? just wondering because the literature stated that the sheet metal was .7mm and less than 100 sets were produced for the Lightweight versions.
@ronwangu The flare back fender, most of them were made by Porsche racing of rallying
dept. Our ST was one of 8 sold for street use, the only silver one. engine 2.2S headers no heating box. 180hp.
@MB-porsche The magazine is call 000 , it is more a refence book than a magazin. In our photos you find few pages concerning our 1970 ST Thanks
@stephenacworth Thanks , we do appreciate your comment.
Wasn’t aware of the existence of this model in the narrow body. I’m aware of the flared back fender.
What’s the horsepower?
A question where can I find this article about the car and the list of ST cars is it an official book written by Randy Wells, the car is just wonderful!
It’s a wonderful and rare car that deserves to be seen to be truly valued.
The restoration work was to a super high standard and the car is stunning.
Watching with interest to see where this ends up.
