This 911 S displays the steady improvement that Porsche imparted on its highest-performance sports car in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The wheelbase of the 911 had been extended by some 2.5 inches in 1969, providing better balance and handling, and with its engine output now increased to a potent 180 horsepower, thanks to larger valves and better breathing, a larger 225-millimeter clutch was required. Interior fittings were upgraded as well, with a new steering wheel lock and its instruments now mounted in rubber rings. Externally, new door handles of a safer design replaced the earlier push-button type, and the cars were delivered with full factory undercoating for the first time. Stopping power was provided by 11.1-inch ventilated front and 11.4-inch ventilated rear disc brakes, which proved more than enough for a 2,400-pound car. It was also capable of accelerating to 60 mph from a standstill in just over seven seconds and 100 mph in just 20 seconds, as well as reaching a top speed of 144 mph. Few cars of its day were capable of matching its exhilarating performance.
The 911S offered here is a 1971 model, which means that it is equipped with the aluminum rear deck lid that is unique to this year’s model. It is finished in its original, factory Light Yellow with a beautiful black leatherette interior and matching Targa top. This 911 is among one of the finest examples we have seen in many years. A two year-long, ground-up restoration was just completed and it is now ready for the show circuit or to be driven and enjoyed. Accompanying this exceptional 911S is its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, documenting its original matching numbers engine as well as its original desirable color combination. It is with great pride that we offer this investment-grade 911S to the most particular collector or enthusiast who desires the best. Ready to make an investment you can actually enjoy?

Finance rates as low as 8.9%.
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.
