The 1971 Porsche 911 S was outfitted with the same 2.2L engine as the previous 1970 model, which was denoted by a 2.2 sticker in the center of the rear window. A Porsche 911 S from 1971 can also be distinguished from earlier models by the five vertical bars located under the engine lid grille instead of the previous models’ six. During this time the Porsche 911 S ran alongside the Porsche 911 T and the Porsche 911 E. The 911T was considered the entry-level model, while the 911E was the more luxurious. Of course the 911 S was the epitome of the Porsche sports car, and was considered the “Sport” variation. Today, the 911 S is perhaps the most sought after and prices have gone up dramatically over the past decade. If you’re looking to sell a 1971 Porsche 911 S, you’re in a good position in today’s classic car market. To discuss pricing in more detail, you can always contact the Alex Manos team.

1971 Porsche 911 S Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your 1971 Porsche 911 S, buyers – depending on their plan for the car – will want to see as much documentation as possible. This starts with taking current pictures and documenting any blemishes or areas in need of repair. On a rolling chassis or a Porsche 911 that has been left unattended for years, this can mean simply clearing out a space in the garage where the car can be seen and taking some pictures to show the current overall condition. Furthermore, buyers want you to prove authenticity. This can be done by finding the engine and chassis numbers and by matching them to Porsche records. Additionally, because rust plays a huge role in the overall condition of these early 911 models, buyers will want to check rust-prone areas thoroughly. This may include doorsills, jacking points, under the wheel arches, around the door latch, behind the seats and more. Replacement panels for these cars can be costly if they come directly from the factory, so you’ll want to take that into consideration when setting your asking price.
