Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consinger

The start of a new generation, the design of these G-bodied/impact bumper cars lasted for 15 years of production with little change.

The 911 was first produced from 1964, and as a model is of course still produced today, with cars up until 1998 featuring an air-cooled flat 6 engine. The rear engined, rear wheel drive configuration of the early cars made for a very unique and lively driving experience, one where without driver aids it was very easy to be caught short. In 1974, in line with legislative changes in road safety and emissions, the "Impact Bumper" design was born, and the drivetrain updated in the main to run on fuel injection rather than carbs. The engine displacement was increased to 2.7L from 2.4L, in standard guise the output was ~150BHP, the 911S 2.7 had an output of ~175BHP.

This particular car is coming to market from ~22 years ownership, a UK RHD that has just 4 former keepers recorded. In the current ownership it's covered just ~13,500 miles, and in July 2021 it had a full engine and gearbox rebuild ~400 miles ago, and a fresh MOT has just been actioned too. With the drivetrain refreshed, this car makes for a great candidate to drive and enjoy as it is, or improve over time as a bit of a rolling restoration. Read on to find out the details on this 911S 2.7.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Peter the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I've been lucky enough to own a number of 911's, having had this classic for many years, I think it's time for a more modern one.

Peter is a petrolhead, alongside a daily/family car he's lucky enough to have owned a number of sports cars in the past. When we met him, he recalls "when the M40 first opened I had a 993, back then it wasn't half as busy as today and you could really enjoy your cars". This classic 911 has been with him for ~22 years and has led a very leisurely life in that time, just ~13,500 miles covered.

Last year, he had a major overhaul of the mechanics actioned, what started as an investigation to stop a small oil leak turned in to a full rebuild since the engine was already out of the car. Having enjoyed his time with this 911S, he's keen for a newer sports car that he can use more often, and so this 2.7 comes to auction with us. Peter will be happy to answer your questions in the comments section below.

Exterior

The classic 911 silhouette, these early narrow bodied cars were diminutive in size, part of the endearment people now have for them.

Wheels and Tyres

Fitted with 15" Fuchs wheels, they present in very good condition, looking to have been refurbished in the recent past. They are finished in silver paint, the Porsche crest painted to match too.

The tyres on the car are a mix across the car, changed as needed over time. They present in good condition, no perishing obviously visible and the car has had a recent MOT actioned too. View the image gallery to see the detail.

Bodywork

The classic 911 shape, with what is now arguably some retro chic in the form of the bellow trim pieces for the "Impact Bumpers". The bodywork on this generation was still narrow bodied like the 2.4L it succeeded, but the bonnet was redesigned along with the front bumper.

This particular car looks to be a solid example, it's covered ~133,500 miles over its life (the odometer having worked its way around), and will have had welding work in the past as visible on the floorpans and in the front trunk, to ensure it remains on the road. The shut-lines on some of the panels could do with adjustment, particularly the engine lid and the nearside door, but all do open and close as they should. In terms of corrosion, this is visible to the bottom of the offside door, and the recent MOT makes note of the nearside front wheel arch. View the video review to see all the panels from afar and up close.

We’ve taken plenty of pictures and videos - do take a look and see how good this car actually is.

Paint

Finished in the ever popular Porsche colour of "Guards Red", this 911S 2.7 looks great in the summer sun, it's a striking colour on this car. Looking around some of the door-shuts etc, it looks like this car was originally painted "Copper Brown".

The paint was applied before Peter took ownership. From afar it looks great, perhaps the nearside door looking a very slightly different shade. When scrutinising the paint, you'd probably say it is far from the best finish. There are some areas with quite a bit of orange peel visible, and overspray too in door shuts etc. The car is arguably fine to run as is, and not have to worry about the paint, or it would be a case of a full respray to get the car looking back to its best again.

The images taken are from various angles and reflections to show the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves and for you to make your own minds up on the condition.

Glass and Trim

The transition from chrome to rubber, these early "G-bodied" cars had the best of both world and were a bridge to the later "Impact Bumpers" where the chrome was banished.

The glass all looks in good condition, no major defects to note and nothing flagged in the recent MOT. The chrome and rubber trim looks in like with the age and mileage of the car. The rubber elements could be improved with the right detailing products we think.

Interior

The classic 911 layout, rev counter front and centre, a minimalistic layout with the driver at the heart.

Seats and Carpets

Finished in leatherette with cloth inserts in a tan colour, in general the seats look really good. Looking through the paperwork, the seat covers have been replaced as some point in the past. The drivers seat has some cracking to the outer bolster, and on the passenger seat inner side squab, the leatherette has come away and should be fixed.

The carpets on the car are a complimentary colour, and have likely been replaced at some point, along with matching overmats and some rubber matting on top too. The door cards are wrapped in a matching leatherette on the uppers, and black for the pockets. The drivers side door isn't the tidiest and could do with some repairs to smarten it up. View the image gallery to see the detail.

Dashboard

Wrapped in a matching tan coloured leatherette on the top and bottom, the dashboard presents in good condition. Any wear to the switchgear is in keeping with the age and mileage of the car, and the dials look in good condition, not suffering from discolouration or scratching to the lenses.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

A minimalistic affair, the classic Porsche steering wheel presents in good, used condition, again in line with age and mileage. The plastic parts could be improved with the right detailing products, and the rim looks in good condition without major marks.

The gearstick looks good, with the classic rubber bellowed gaiter looking in good condition too. View the video review to get a tour of the cabin up close.

Mechanics

The 911S 2.7 pushed out ~175BHP, this car has had a rebuild of the drivetrain at a cost of ~£10,000 in 2021.

Engine and Gearbox

These early air-cooled flat 6 911's have an unmistakeable sound, without the water jacket on the block to dampen it, it's a visceral experience. The early "G-Bodied" cars like this one also featured fuel injection via the Bosch K-Jetroinic system, to help bring emission output down in a changing market globally.

This particular car has had a full engine rebuild actioned last year, and has only covered ~400 miles since. Along with the engine rebuilt, the gearbox and diff were also attended to, as detailed in the works invoice, and a new clutch installed too. Watch the video to see the car starting from cold, and on a quick drive on the road too. We also filmed the car idling smoothly when it was up to temperature, as it we just felt it was hunting a little when it was idling on cold.

Suspension and Brakes

As detailed in the invoices, and in the handy works summary that Peter has produced, the cars suspension and brakes have had maintenance and work completed over the years as necessary. The result was that on our drive, the car was compliant and no untoward noises were observed.

The Drive

Spirited is how these cars were designed to be driven (we even see a note in the invoices from a specialist suggesting so). Get the car on the road and work the engine through the rev range to hear that tell tale air-cooled flat 6 howl, intoxicating.

Electrics and Other

These cars came with quite basic electrics, the car does feature some mod-cons for the time like electric windows! It has an aftermarket stereo installed (which includes a CD player), and an immobiliser along with a batter cut-off switch too. Peter has confirmed to his knowledge, all the electronics on the car are working.

History and Paperwork

A UK RHD 911S 2.7, just 4 former keepers and coming to market from ~22 year ownership, recent drivetrain rebuild at ~£10,000 and a fresh MOT make this car a cracking buy we think.

The car comes with a comprehensive history file charting its life. Peter has produced a document which details the servicing and maintenance work over the years too. In addition to the MOT history, there are numerous invoices from Peter and the 4 former keepers of this car,

The car comes with a fresh MOT actioned this month, but more importantly, the rebuilt engine, gearbox and new clutch make this a very interesting auction.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.

Hi Peter, has the car ever been damaged? I am just asking because of the paint change, welding, and some panel shutlines (e.g. nearside door, engine lid).
Thank you
Fred

Hi Peter I see you are looking for a modern classic sports and I have a 911 turbo 996 it’s 19 years old and mint I haven’t registered it with this auction but was wondering if they and you would be interested in a deal not sure how it would work but I’m sure there’s a way if it’s up your street. It suits well as I’m looking for an early car. Let me know Tim

Hi Tim,

With us running an auction, there are no PX options etc. The reserve has now been met on this 911S, and so if you’re interested, you’ll have to get involved in the bidding, in line with our 7 day payment and collection terms.

Best,

Kulraj – Trade Classics
