Up for auction is this 1976 Porsche 911S finished in Black over a black leather interior with Sport Seats and blue carpeting. Originally sold as the top-of-the-line 911 model available for the U.S. market, this 911S is said to have been purchased by the seller from its original owner several years ago before undergoing some major restoration in 2019 including an engine-out service. A lifelong West Coast car, this 911S is now being offered by its seller out of Palm Springs, CA. with just under 48k miles showing on the odometer.
The Black paint on this 911S is said to be in near flawless condition with the majority of the car recently taken down to bare metal and professionally refinished during the 5-month restoration process by Cars by Thermal in California. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with images from the restoration. Some noteworthy features include a rear window wiper, front fog lights, European taillight lenses, and factory Fuchs wheels that come dressed in brand new Dunlop tires.
Inside, this 911S features a highly original black leather interior with blue carpeting that has been preserved in excellent condition. Factory leather Sport Seats are equipped along with a period-correct radio and square-weave carpet floor mats. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional including the factory sunroof.
This 911S is equipped with a 2.7 L fuel-injected flat-six engine that sends 165 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. In 2019, this example was completely gone through by the technicians at Cars by Thermal including a major engine-out service along with the replacement of the clutch and throw-out bearing. This 911S is said to be in excellent driving condition with service records dating back to the original purchase.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys and 2 valet keys, the original owner’s manual and stamped maintenance book, tools, a spare tire, service records, a car cover, bra, and a clean title. The product of over 5-months of professional restoration work, this 911S is ready to begin its journey with a new owner.
