The 1972 Porsche 911 S introduced several design improvements over earlier models. The fuel-injected, 2.4-liter boxer, six-cylinder engine was factory-rated at 190 horsepower, which demanded a stronger transmission than the early Type 901 “dog-leg” box. The newly developed Type 915 provided much stronger internals and a new shift pattern, with the first gear on the same plane as the second rather than being offset to the left. The dry-sump oil tank was moved ahead of the right-rear wheelhouse to provide better balance. Forged lightweight Fuchs 15-inch alloy wheels became standard on the “S” models, with rim width increased by half-an-inch to six inches. The Targa’s heated glass rear window, introduced as an option in 1968, became standard equipment the following year. This was not an inexpensive car for its day; the list price for a base 911 S Targa was $10,230.
The stunning 1972 Porsche 911S 2.4 Coupe featured here is finished the most sought after color combination of special order Silver Metallic over an incredibly well preserved black interior with factory optional sport seats. This particular example was completed in May 1972 and was subsequently sold new in August 1972 by Porsche-Audi Manhattan to its original owner who cared for and sparingly drove the 911S for 44 years! This highly optioned example is equipped with highly sought after sport seats, engine compartment light, rear bumper guard and seldom seen dealer installed air-conditioning. After ownership was relinquished by the original owner in 2016 a complete $4,600 service was performed by a German auto specialist and less than 50 miles have been added since. Both period and recent service records corroborate the low mileage and the accompanying Porsche Production Specifications certificate confirms that the numbers matching 190hp 911S engine and 5-speed transaxle are still in place. Additional incredible documentation includes over 30 years’ worth of registrations and insurance cards in the original owner’s name, original maintenance record book (with service stamps from the delivery inspection and the first service), original plastic warranty card and more! Simply put this is one of the finest examples to be found on the market today in terms of low mileage, originality and accompanying documentation. We are especially proud to offer this 1972 Porsche 911S 2.4 Coupe to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the legacy of the Porsche 911.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
