Porsche 911S 2.4 Targa - 1972

Porsche 911S 2.4 Targa - 1972


This highly desirable 2.4S "Oelklapp"  has just finished a several year restoration at a Porsche specialist here in Denmark bringing it back to its former glory and not least performance. Next to the lightweight Carrera RS the 2.4S Targa was the most expensive Porsche in 1972.

Produced in late 1971 in gold-metallic with tinted glass and the attractive Recaro sports seats the car went to a US dealer. In 2007 it went through a major service and repair at European Motorcars Ltd., San Jose, CA including a rebuild of the engine with another crankcase from a 2.4S MFI engine. Hence no matching numbers on engine.

2.4S engine is blueprinted and built with  E-camshafts and to compensate for these slightly milder cams pistons from a 2.2S with the higher compression has been chosen. Not only does this clever little trick makes the somewhat hysterical "S" engine more drivable with considerable better low and mid range torque it also raises the top end power by some +10 BHP. The engine has just been on a rolling road fine-tuning the mechanical injection and ignition to an output of 201 BHP (204 BHP without air cleaners). This almost standard "S" now pulls like a rocket ship through the entire rev band.  Just what you want on a classic car for street use. Gearbox is the original matching numbers 915 unit.

The rest of the car has been extensively serviced with new brakes, suspension, steering etc. Interior is the original with the Recaro seats except for new quality carpets in the classic salt'n pepper pattern. The new gold-metallic paint and polished chrome really makes this gorgeous 911S stand out. Available for sale now with EU VAT included in the price (not deductible at export). Comes with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
