1967 Porsche 911

For 1967, a new 911S (Super) high-performance coupe was introduced. While the base model had a 9.0:1 compression ratio, the 911S version had a compression ratio of 9.8:1, larger valves, forged light-alloy pistons on forged and nitride connecting rods, a revised exhaust system, and a pair of 40 mm Weber triple-throat downdraft carburetors. The 2.0-liter flat six offered 180 horsepower, an increase of 32 HP over the base model. 4.5 x 15-inch Fuchs lightweight forged alloy wheels were standard on the 911 S, along with Koni shock absorbers, a new rear anti-roll bar, a larger-diameter front anti-roll bar, and ventilated disc brakes. Even with the additional and distinctive trim to the body, the engineers were able to reduce its weight.

The 911 sold for $5,990 while the 911S was an additional $1,000. Both versions had a five-speed manual gearbox, a rack-and-pinion steering, steel monocoque construction, and disc brakes. The 911 had a top speed of about 130 mph while the 911S could achieve 140 MPH.

1967 model year Targa production began in December 1966 with only 483 911S and 718 standard 911 examples coming off the line. That same year 1,823 911S and 3,421 standard coupes arrived. The S motor that year offered 160 horsepower at 6,000 RPM with a pair of 3-choke Weber 40 IDS carburetors.

Recently, the 'A-Series' 911s have become more desirable of their shorter wheelbase, as it was extended in August of 1968. The flat-six is only 2.0-liters, but highly tuned with overhead cams and two triple-choke carburetors. The 'S' was the best performing variant of the original short wheelbase cars and is easily distinguished by its Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels.
