Offered for auction is this 1977 Porsche 911S Coupe finished in Guards Red over a tan leather interior. Marking the final year of the 2.7L 911, this 1977 example’s flat-six has been completely rebuilt over the years and upgraded with Carrera chain tensioners, a billet sump plate, Turbo valve covers, LSD Motorsports stainless steel headers, a Bursch muffler, and more. A perfect air-cooled driver’s car, this tastefully upgraded and well serviced 911S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing approximately 190k miles on the odometer.
This Coupe is finished in traditional Guards Red paint with silver window moldings, chrome headlight rings, rectangular front fog lights, U.S. market bumperettes, and classic 16” Fuchs wheels dressed in General tires from 2007. The seller notes the car has been stored in a heated garage and driven very sparingly since the tires were mounted. A few rust spots are depicted, and the finish is said to have been professionally reconditioned by a paint specialist prior to an application of ceramic coating. The car is believed to have been refinished at some point and some cosmetic imperfections are noted throughout the exterior as well as faded rubber pieces. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The tan leather interior has been fitted with an upgraded MOMO Prototipo steering wheel and retains manually-adjustable seats with basketweave pattern inserts. An aftermarket radio has been equipped and some signs of age-related wear are noted including a small rip on the passenger seat. All accessories and instrumentation work properly apart from the oil gauge, heat, and A/C systems.
Displacing 2.7 liters, the engine uses a stock 7R magnesium case and was reportedly rebuilt from the bottom-up during the early 1990s with all new gaskets and seals, oil lines, upgraded Carrera chain tensioners, Turbo lower valve covers, a billet sump plate, LSD Motorsports headers, and a Bursch muffler. The heads were reportedly cleaned and inspected last winter and the head studs are all said to be in good condition. All original emissions equipment has been removed along with the heat and A/C components. A new clutch was installed about two years ago and the 5-speed 915 manual transmission has been recently flushed with new fluid. The car is currently set to European ride height and features upgraded stainless steel brake lines and Bilstein dampers at each corner. The seller notes the airbox, CV joints, and tie rods are all new as well.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals and a clean title.
