Always evolving, the 1970 model year would bring about new changes to the Porsche 911. All engines got a 4mm larger bore that increased displacement to 2,165cc. Other changes were made to the engine, and due to increased power, the clutch diameter was also increased. The 1970 Porsche 911 S Coupe would now give owners 180 horsepower and a top speed of approximately 144mph all of this at a base price of approximately $8,600. To lighten the car, all 911 E models and 911 S models would receive an aluminum engine-lid and partly aluminum bumpers. During 1970 a special lightweight version of the 911 S was also developed. Stripped of all unnecessary features, lightweight seats replaced normal seats, cords replaced door handles, and the engine-lid and bumpers would be made completely of aluminum. While it was meant for the track, most were delivered with a M470 option, which made the car suitable for the road. If you’re thinking about buying a 1970 Porsche 911 S Coupe and you come across this model, it’s a real gem and should be considered.
When buying a 1970 Porsche 911 S Coupe, or any Porsche 911 classic, it is important to remember that while more than 70 percent of all Porsches ever built are still on the road today, they can be costly to restore if good care was not taken throughout their lifetime. The 1970 Porsche 911 S and earlier models are desired by collectors and enthusiasts, as they were not equipped with the 2.7L engines of 1973 and beyond, which had cooling flaws and were plagued with problems. However, you should still take the time and care to have an inspection done by a certified Porsche mechanic to ensure you know the condition of the mechanics prior to purchase. These are just a few of the very important Buyer’s Tips that the team at The Beverly Hills Car Club has learned over their years of buying and selling classics of all makes, models and conditions.
