Many would say that the defining characteristic of the Porsche 911 brand that enabled it to stay relevant for more than five decades was the ability of engineers to improve and refine body styling and engine mechanics each generation without pulling too far away from the original. During the 1970 model year, the 1970 Porsche 911 S (and other body types) would become incrementally quicker. This was in part due to increased horsepower and torque thanks to a 4mm larger bore, which increased displacement to 2,165cc. The 1970 911 S would now give its owners a top speed of more than 144mph. Many buyers and car enthusiasts during the time also praised the 911 for returning to the market after meeting stringent emissions requirements with a car that blended emission control and high performance without the common symptoms that other brands were experiencing while trying to do the same thing. Once again, Porsche proved to be a leader in the European sports car scene.


1970 Porsche 911 S Seller’s Guide

If you’re the owner of a 1970 Porsche 911 S, you know that Porsche achieved great success by giving drivers the power they wanted with finesse rather than brute force. Even driving a Porsche today is a luxurious experience, yet the power can be released at a moment’s notice. Porsche owners know this, and those who want to own Porsches crave it. If you’re looking to sell your 1970 911 S, here are a few Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team has put together for you. First, while Porsche power trains are extremely reliable, particularly those prior to the 2.7L engine, only 70 percent of these early Porsche are said to be in existence today. Many buyers, depending on what they want to do with the 911, will want confidence that your Porsche 911 engine has been maintained or rebuilt. If you have documentation regarding maintenance or repairs, this can be greatly helpful in painting a picture of a much-loved engine. On the other hand, if your potential buyer is looking for a restoration project, sometimes the body will be more important to them. If that is the case, they’ll be looking for an example with as little rust as possible. Don’t be surprised when they ask to do a thorough inspection, including placing the car on a lift to see the undercarriage. These are just some of the things to expect when you place your 1970 911 S for sale.
