Supercar spotted Julien Morin has been out and about his native France when he stumbled upon this absolutely beautiful Porsche 911 S in Rennes. If you have been harboring doubts about the fact that classic 911s are among the sexiest cars ever built, the photos you are about to see will eradicate them.
This blue Porsche 911 S – which is in excellent condition, probably fully restored, and belonging to a prestigious club of some sort of the other – showcases all that is good about 70’s 911s. This was the generation that established this body style as the definitive 911 form, and introduced us to features like sleek bumpers with chin spoiler, flared wheel arches, and those glorious Fuchs alloy wheels.
Proudly showing off its 2.4 badge on the engine cover, this Porsche 911 S is a 1972-3 model powered by an air-cooled 2,341cc boxer engine developing 190 horsepower and 216 Nm of torque. Given the car’s dry weight of only 1,050 kg, that powers give the 911 S a serious turn of speed. Not that you would want to try it, because this car belong to the era where spinning out of control was considered a bona fide 911 feature!
If we owned a 1972 Porsche 911 S we wouldn’t drive it that often. We would make a special place for it in our living room and spend night after night ogling it while sipping Johnnie Blue, because it is that sort of car. These days a pristine 911 S like this one costs well over $200K.
