Chassis 11800223 is an original, matching-numbers right hand drive 911S manufactured in Germany to UK specification. Completed on 9 October 1967, this MY 1968 car is thought to be one of approximately only 35 made for the RHD markets.

The exterior paint is a most unusual feature, believed to be the only example recorded as Jaguar ‘Indigo Blue’.  First registered on 20 October 1967, little is known of the car’s early history. The car was given a full, ground-up restoration by respected classic Porsche workshop, Canford Classics, between 2013 and 2015.

A complete set of invoices are available, detailing all work carried out over the three-year restoration, with the car finally registered on 1 April 2015 as ‘PRH 64F’. Still retaining its original mechanical components, the car represents a special opportunity to obtain one of the rarest ‘S’ models.

These cars are beautifully pure to drive while the S upgrades really gave it the performance and handling to match the looks and image of Porsche.

Our thoughts

Comprehensively restored to original specification, the car features a host of the prized features that makes the ‘S’ such a favourite amongst early 911 models, whilst the overhauled original engine and gearbox ensure this car delivers the expected ‘S’ performance on the road too. These cars are beautifully pure to drive while the S upgrades really gave it the performance and handling to match the looks and image of Porsche.  

“Paint to Sample” is all the rage in modern Porsche sales (not to mention a costly option) but it is rare to find such an early car with this type of more bespoke specification. That 1960’s scheme has stood the test of time well and still pops today.

The short wheelbase 2-litre 911 S is one of our favourite of all Porsche models. Fresh from a thorough service with marque specialist, Autofarm, this is very much “on the button” and ready to be enjoyed.

It is always surprising how many enthusiasts prefer their Porsche to be right hand drive. We are happy on the left but there is no doubt that sitting on the right offers useful visibility and safety on busy English roads.
