  • rare right hand drive version
  • four owners from new
  • delivered new to South Africa
  • attractive Signal Orange original colour  

This car is a right hand drive 1970 model year 2.2T delivered new via Lindsey Saker Motors, Porsche agents in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is finished in its original colour of Signal Orange with black vinyl and basket weave interior. It benefits from having been specified new with the Luxury Pack which included most of the equipment from the 911S. It has spent most of its life in the dry South African climate and consequently is in highly original condition. It has been repainted externally but it retains plenty of factory finish and trim.

The car’s first owner was Solon Phitidis, a South African lawyer from Johannesburg. He kept the car for 26 years, although it seems he used it sparingly. It was sold locally to Diane Stuckey in 1996 with around 40,000 miles on the clock. The Stuckeys were Porsche enthusiasts and club members. They emigrated to the UK in 2002 and brought the 2.2T with them. They had the car maintained by well known specialists, Autofarm. Uncomfortable with using the car in the UK weather they sold it in 2005 with 70,581 miles to Wayne Pryce. Pryce kept the car garaged in London and sold it on to the current owner in 2008.

The current owner has improved the car significantly under his stewardship. In 2015 he had the exterior of the car taken back to bare metal and repainted. The panels were found to be original to the car and in excellent condition. In 2016 he also had the engine fully rebuilt. The car has been little used over the last three years but has been fully serviced by respected Porsche specialists at BS Motorsport prior to sale.

Right hand drive versions are rare animals. They were originally sold in very small numbers, with maybe only 200 making it to the UK in total.

Our thoughts

The 2.2 iteration of the 911 was only made for two years and is for many people the sweet spot in the model’s evolution. It benefits from the improved, more stable, handling of the longer wheelbase while retaining the dogleg gearbox and spoiler-free aesthetics of the earlier cars.

Right hand drive versions are rare animals. They were originally sold in very small numbers, with maybe only 200 making it to the UK in total. Many failed to survive the British weather and salt strewn roads. Most of the remainder have been subject to major restorative surgery. So finding an original right hand drive car is no easy task.  

This car spent the first 33 years of its life in the dry climate of Johannesburg and it shows. With original panels, interior and factory paint finishes, it retains a feeling of connection with the people who made it in Stuttgart. It has been well maintained and drives exactly as it should. To top it off, the Signal Orange colour is one of our favourites.
