Always improving and refining body styling, engine mechanics and appeal, the 1970 model-year brought about more changes to the Porsche 911. Most importantly, the 1970 Porsche 911 S (and other body types) would become incrementally quicker; thanks to a 4mm larger bore that increased displacement to 2,165cc. This also increased horsepower and torque, and therefore clutch diameter. The 1970 911 S would now give owners at top speed of 144mph with a base price of $8,675. The 1970 Porsche 911 S was also praised for being able to meet smog requirements without many of the common symptoms being found in the emission-control high-performance engines of the day, particularly at moderate speeds. Competing in the same performance league as the Jaguar E-Type and Chevy Corvette, the Porsche 911 S was considered to be better built and gave owners sheer racing and sports car excitement through finesse rather than brute force. These same characteristics that made the 911 S popular during the early 1970s are what make it desirable today as a collector’s car.
Whether you’ve just recently fallen in love with the 1970 Porsche 911 S or have been longing for one for decades, the team of California classic car dealership professionals at The Beverly Hills Car Club have the knowledge and expertise needed to help you find the perfect model to suit your needs. Armed with years of experience in the classic car scene, their team is happy to provide clients and future clients with the following Buyer’s Tips. First, when purchasing a 1970 911 S, it’s important to remember that while more than 70 percent of all Porsches ever built are still on the road, you should still approach your purchase with caution. Many of the 1970’s models with the 2.7L engines saw a shorter lifespan with early rebuilds due to engine cooling flaws, however, the 2.7L did not come on the scene until 1973. Similarly, chassis galvanization did not come into play until the mid 1970s, so these early models still need to be inspected quite thoroughly for rust on both the body panels and chassis. Lastly, it is important to remember that these are premium European sports cars that can be quite costly to fix and maintain. Always look over maintenance records to check for any red flags.
