Porsche 911S Ölklappe
They’ve outlasted hippies, disco and yuppies. Is it any wonder they hold their value so well? –
In 1964, the Porsche ‘901’ was born in Stuttgart. After Armand Peugeot and Ferdinand Porsche had fought over the 0 in the middle, Ferdinand decided to cut his losses. Something with the motto; Choose your battles. The ‘911’ was an immediate hit; Nowadays Porsche is equivalent to the 911.
In 1972 the ‘Ur-911’er was slightly modified before it became the G-model. This modification proved perfect on paper. After the battery was split in two in the nose for weight distribution, the fluids distribution could not be left behind. An oil system was then chosen that could be refilled with an ‘oil valve’ at the rear. In the old days everything was better, gas stations were manned and they even filled up for you! You guessed it; most 72’ers ran on mixed fuel…
After only 989 units, production with the oil valve was already discontinued because of this problem. The smallest production number for Porsche’s 911s, to this day. And then this is also the Porsche 911S Ölklappe. Something about a faster icing on the cake.
And then ours in particular; an example with everything our air-cooled heart desires; fully nut&bolt restored and rebuilt, original Recaro sport seats, black-black, electric sunroof, matching numbers, original Portuguese delivered. We’ve got you covered.
Did you spend your youth dreaming about someday owning a Nissan? After all, we know how many decades you’ve waited. –I'm interested in this object
