The Porsche 911 2.0 S coupé, introduced in 1966, marked a significant improvement and the first of countless upgrades to the legendary model, two years after the production commenced. Although pretty similar in terms of look, it was down to the mechanic that the 911S made an actual difference thanks to its new all-aluminum, single-overhead-cam, dry-sumped, 2.0-liter engine boasting c. 160 bhp which was a mere 30 bhp more powerful than its elder sister, the regular 911 2.0 SWB. The 911S also had upgraded brakes with ventilated discs, Koni shocks, a rear anti-roll bar, and a set of handsome, lightweight and now timeless Fuchs forged alloy wheels.
On the performance side, the 911S was capable of reaching nearly 225 km/h in fifth gear, which ended to convince private racing teams and amateur race-drivers to take the wheel to races and hill climbs on a regular basis.
Today, the 911S is a much sought-after 911 variant, and especially so with the earlier models from 1966, which are rare to come by in great condition and with continuous history.
