By the early-1970s, the Porsche 911 had hit its stride, and its iconic shape had become instantly recognizable to a future generation of collectors. Aside from the RS homologation specials, the “S” variant was the top production car specification, and 1973 was a desirable, watershed year, but it was then followed up in 1974, when Porsche increased the engine capacity to 2,687 cubic centimeters, which allowed for increased torque and a higher top end horsepower of over 173.
The 1975 Porsche 911S Targa we have the pleasure of offering from the Don Davis Collection is a very presentable example that is accompanied with a Porsche factory Certificate of Authenticity, attesting to its original delivery configuration in Irish Green with Cinnamon leatherette interior, as well as the correct chassis and engine numbers. Additional delivery options include U.S. equipment, forged alloy wheels, Koni shocks, a five-speed transmission, and Dunlop tires.
Overall, this is a fit running example that recently benefited from a thorough service in preparation for the auction. Additionally, and most impressively, it is understood and believed to display its original mileage of less than 40,400, which, when one examines its overall condition, would assume to be correct.
