Porsche vehicles exemplify the company’s pride in their deep-running lineage — one that’s firmly rooted within the racing world. And while the marque’s newest vehicles foster the transcendental style set forth by their predecessors, there’s nothing quite like the roar (and symbolism) of a classic car — a notion that’s been heavily reinforced by this 1967 911S 2.7.
There’s a reason that Porsche’s storied name is often associated with the greatest racing circuits — they’ve been a track-faring force to be reckoned with ever since the brand’s conception in 1931. Keeping in line with their prodigious lineage, the 911S 2.7 represented here has been raced, modified, and nurtured for over 20 years — reminding us, once again, that these machines were bred with an unshakable purpose. A carbureted 2.7L flat-six engine and five-speed manual transaxle keep the vehicle moving forward, while race-oriented improvements like a close-ratio gear set, MSD electronic ignition, fuel cell, and a half roll cage have been implemented to keep the car track-ready. On the 911’s interior, a set of ST seats and RS-style door panels and carpets serve to amplify its utilitarian poise. The buyer will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity, annotating the vehicle’s legitimacy as one of Germany’s greats. The 911S 2.7 Coupe is now available for auction via Bring A Trailer’s website.
