    1971 Porsche 911 S 2.4

    was at early 911s today to drop off my targa to rebuild engine and gearbox. they will be returned to as new condition.

    while there, I was offered to drive a 2.4 s.....which I really enjoyed. its an engine that really needs to be revved to breathe.

    what early 911s do is totally rebuild the cars to factory new condition with all original parts. in fact I believe the cars are even better than when they left the factory....and they feel and look like brand new.

    if you sign up its approx a 24 month build period until you receive the car built to original factory spec. no modifications.

    however, I will most likely build one to concours and rally condition. with a removable cage and Porsche original buckets for harness belts to be able to also rally it.

    I am amazed by what they do there and they have an incredible inventory.

    anyone into classics should have a look.

    will update once decided and agreement made. for now its getting the targa to factory condition or better.

    Cool - the very first Porsche I've owned (of 8 now) was an original 1973 911S 2.4 with Original Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection, optional Recaro leather sport seats, and no sunroof.  Did the 2.4S that you drove still have MFI?  Aubergine in color - bought for $16k in 2000.

    BTW, I just noticed that the heading of your post says '71 2.4S.  The 197 model S was 2.2L and this one really needs to rev (more than 2.4S)...

    1967-69S 2.0L (only 69 had MFI and long wheelbase)

    70-71S 2.2L MFI

    72-73S 2.4L MFI

    I had a short wheelbase '68S with a fairly hot 2.0l in it and saying it liked to rev was an understatement. It was only happy above 4000rpm and came alive around 7000. Lovely car

    yes, mfi...

    weather was too bad to get out and take pics. every single nut and bolt on the car is new. every single hose and line.

    amazing really.

    the prices of these cars went through the roof though.

    Yeah, it’s amazing that the Flat6 is exactly twice as large in displacement today (and soon to be 4.2L).  We really should have a Flat12, if not for the packaging difficulties. blush

    Maybe they could do an "X-12" (2 x narrow V6 with common crank) to solve the length issue?  Worked for the "W" engines for Bentley.

    That would be cool, but I'd worry about the weight gain.  Maybe they could do it will exotic lightweight material...

    I just picked up a new (gently used) Mag 7R case for my engine rebuild wink  Had it shuffle-pinned in addition to all the usual upgrades.

    My heavily modified gearbox has Mag case too.

    Actually, I think modern Magnesium alloys are quite a bit better than what was around in 1969...

    as it stands the offer is now for 1971 a 2.2 S tuned to 230 hp

    going rate is 330k euro.....which is a bit much for my intended use as I am a driver not a collector....will consider

    Wow - that is pricey.  Quite recently, that would have bought a Concours condition 73RS.

    Very fun car though Smiley  Must be revving to ~8,000 rpm?

    yep, somewhere in the 8000 region

    the price is high, but the quality is beyond reproach. these cars look as when they left the factory and are in fact improved in some aspects.
