Vehicle story

1970 Porsche 911 T Coupe “S” spec – 207hp Engine

After driving hundreds of longhood 911s over the years, the ‘70/’71 model years with their 2.2L engines are among my favorites. There is something special about how these motors rev and their visceral nature. The dog-leg gearbox is perfectly matched to the power. The way 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears form the perfect “V” pattern, makes it a joy to shift. If you enjoy vintage driving events/tours, then a 2.2 911 is the perfect choice.

This Porsche was one of the last built for the 1970 model year and was most likely built in late July of 1970. It was sold new on September 30th, 1970 by Dick Barbour Porsche + Audi of San Diego, California.

Considerable work has been done to bring this excellent survivor to the next level. The owner invested $85,000 on a complete mechanical overhaul of most every major component. This 911 is an excellent high example for those who want a well-sorted and fun driving early air-cooled experience.
The exterior is in great shape, especially for being a 14-year old refurbishment. The interior is equally nice and is very original (except the seats). The front seats are reproduction sport-seats that were recently installed and still look new. New retractable seat belts were also installed for easier use. The rear seats are original and in good shape. All the gauges work properly, including the original clock. The tachometer has been refinished to reflect the new “S” redline of 7,200 rpm. The original Blaunkpunkt Frankfurt radio works as well.

This 911 drives fantastically and is definitely a sleeper. Other than the ride height/stance attitude, no one would suspect how quickly it drives. It starts easily and holds an even idle with the help of the working hand throttle. Once warmed up, it pulls hard through the rev range, especially past 4k rpm. The engine has a great sound, thanks partially to the factory sport muffler. It’s quieter when just putting around and doesn’t drone. The engine has no hesitation and is tuned perfectly. The transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears with no grinding or slipping. It’s one of the better 901 boxes I’ve shifted. The brakes have excellent bite with no fading or pulling and easily handle the upgraded power. The handling is tight and responsive with excellent turn in without sacrificing freeway driving comfort.

Justin was absolutely wonderful as a host. He was able to meet me during the week as was able to show my the ins and outs of the 911 prior to the rental. Justin was also answered the phone when I had questions on the 911 throughout the rental. As for the 911, what a car. Went off without a hitch!! Justin’s 911 made me want to buy one of my own. 10/10 would recommend!

Thank you Justin! This Porsche is such a beautiful and special car. It is pretty easy to drive (so don't be intimidated) but a definite showstopper - I've never met so many strangers in one day! Justin was a pleasure to communicate and work with, and I already have plans to rent this beauty again.
