Not much changed for the Porsche 911 S Coupe between 1970 and 1971. Under the hood, buyers would find a 2.2L engine, denoted by a 2.2 sticker in the center of the rear window, and increased displacement to 2,165cc. All of this meant owners received increased horsepower and a top speed of 144mph. On the exterior, the 1971 Porsche 911 S Coupe could be identified by five vertical fixing bars located ender the engine lid grille rather than the previous models’ six. Running alongside the Porsche 911 T, and entry-level model, and the 911 E, the luxury version, the 911 S Coupe was known for being the most powerful and sporty of the lineup. For that reason alone, many classic car collectors and Porsche enthusiasts turn to the 911S.


1971 Porsche 911 S Coupe Seller’s Guide

Perhaps one of the biggest hurdles in selling your 1971 Porsche 911 S Coupe is determining the condition, and therefore value, of your particular model. Rust is one of the biggest factors that come into play when talking about condition. Some of the areas that are known to be rust-prone include: the posts behind the seats, around the door latch, the doorsills, jacking points and under all the arches. If your model features a sunroof, also look for rust around the housing and the mechanics of the sunroof itself. Even if your car has rust damage, the Porsche factory supports these early 911 S models quite well and makes replacement panels readily available; they are not cheap though. Buyers will talk all of this into consideration when purchasing your Porsche 911 S Coupe, so be sure to understand the honest condition of your car before you begin.
