Since its launch in 1963, the Porsche 911 has gone on to be probably the most successful sports car of all time. With an austere beauty and famed reliability, the basic design has endured to this day, punctuated with derivatives that have become icons of the marque. The 911 2.4 S was such a model and in October 1973 the 2.7 Coupé was announced sharing the basic body style but with the inclusion of impact bumpers. The 1973 911 represented a change in 911 ethos, with less frantic engines that were far more economical. The 2.7 engine delivered more torque to improve basic drivability with K-Jetronic fuel injection, whilst the body and wheels are wider. From August 1975, Porsche became the first manufacturer to produce hot-dip galvanised bodies, so subsequent cars are a bit more resistant to rust. This particular car is a price range entry level to true 911 ownership. It was originally supplied as a 911S new to Hawaii in left-hand drive form and finished in Silver. The car has had a 3.0 litre SC engine installed during its life . Imported to the UK in 2014 from New Hampshire in the USA, the car is now fully UK registered with all duties paid and an MOT until August next year. Said to drive well and with a particularly nice interior, it is offered at "No Reserve" and may well be the bargain opportunity of this Sale.
