Ferdinand Porsche developed the chassis and body, while his cousin Ferdinand Piech developed its new air-cooled flat-six engine. With a slightly longer wheelbase and clearly paying homage to its successful predecessor, the new Porsche model debuted at Frankfurt in 1963 as the “901”. However, following Peugeot’s objections to the name, claiming it held the rights to all three-digit model designations with zeroes in the middle, a simple numeric change heralded Porsche’s brilliant new 911. Production began in September 1964 and as before with the 356, the 911 was relentlessly developed and perfected with an uncanny level of commitment Porsche. Its sporting credentials were confirmed during the 1965 edition of the gruelling Monte Carlo Rally, with a 911 piloted by Peter Falk and Herbert Linge finishing in fifth. “Quick” Vic Elford took victory with a 911 there in 1968. By the late 1960s, the 911 was the cornerstone of Porsche’s racing program. The high-performance “S” debuted for 1967 and immediately spawned a number of lightweight competition variants that immediately dominated their respective classes. Main “S” upgrades included a compression boost to 9.8:1, forged pistons with raised crowns, stronger connecting-rods, high-performance camshafts with increased overlap, enlarged valves, Weber IDS carburetors and revised exhaust ducting, plus brake and suspension revisions. Bosch mechanical fuel injection debuted for 1969 and maintained the engine’s stout 190-hp output while meeting the increasingly more stringent emissions standards imposed in Porsche’s crucial US export market. From launch, the 911 S has been the hands-down favorite of driving enthusiasts around the world, with an unmatched level of driver-and-machine interaction and a strong top speed approaching 140-mph. Naturally, its enduring cachet is enhanced by film legend Steve McQueen’s ownership of a 911S, with the car figuring prominently during the opening sequences of his classic film, LeMans. A great example of the ultimate early road-going early 911 model, this 1969 Coupe is a solid and straight original 911S with a completely detailed undercarriage, show quality paint and trim, and excellent panel gaps. Retaining the correct original engine, it is accompanied by its ‘Kardex’ build record, as well as the original owner’s manual and warranty book, plus toolkit. It is numbers matching and finished in its original color of tangerine. Just fully serviced and ready for the road or the track. As one of the greatest pure driving machines ever produced in its iconic early form, this 911S remains the ultimate early 911 and of course, it is both highly collectible and immensely satisfying to drive
