Porsches long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latters rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement.In its first incarnation, Porsches single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than three litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300bhp. The first of countless upgrades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the …S featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph.A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements, to 2.2 litres. The Ss power output then was 180bhp, increasing to 190bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-litre engine for 1972. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973.This beautifully presented 911 is offered in the very desirable colour combination of black on black with Recaro sports seats. The car benefitted from a complete concours standard restoration in 1988 with £30,000 spent in work. Since then the car has been with the current vendor and has been sympathetically maintained by marque specialists. Recent work has been carried out to ensure the engine is tuned and sealed correctly, chrome trims replaced and the car generally overhauled. The car feels tight on the road with the engine pulling smoothly and progressively on the pristine Fuchs wheels. In overall good condition and only requiring minor detailing to bring back to concours condition, this car presents an excellent chance to own one of the best Porsches of the 1970s. An extensive history file with various invoices, a current MOT and UK V5C registration all come with the car.View 1972 Porsche 911 2.4 S on 'http://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1972-porsche-911-2-4-s' for further details.
