The 911 2.2 and 2.4 models from 1970-1973 are probably the prettiest cars Porsche have ever made and the ’S’ variant is particularly desirable with its higher performance engine. Iconic status was sealed when Steve McQueen used his road car for the opening scene of the film Le Mans in 1971.
The Paul Stephens Classic Touring was created for the discerning owner who appreciates the authentic timeless style of the 911 from this period but seeks increased refinement and attention to detail, in a car that is suitable for daily use.
The interior will be instantly familiar to the classic 911 driver, each panel and control looking like it should do and the steering wheel falling perfectly to hand. However, unlike the original, these are in fact our own, faithfully recreated with modern production tolerances of fit and finish, before being trimmed or machined from the finest materials.
The Autoart Classic was powered by a 3.2 240BHP flat six air-cooled engine that provides strong flexible performance, whilst the Autoart Classic S was powered by a 3.4-litre version, featuring a Paul Stephens developed ITB injection system and sports cams, to produce a heady 290BHP.
With a 100BHP increase over the original 2.4 911, the 3.4S will dash to 60mph in under 5 seconds and power through 160mph with ease, ensuring your Autoart Classic suprised more than a few drivers of more modern machinery.
A number of bespoke options were available including air conditioning, electric seats and heated seats, a modern audio communications package and bespoke luggage are available to further enhance the special experience, whilst sat behind the wheel.
The rebuilt and improved mechanicals provided a reliable and enhanced driving experience for the requirement of today’s motoring. With 12,000-mile service intervals and the ability to run on unleaded fuel. Each car when completed, was supplied with a 3-year 60,000-mile warranty, for total piece of mind.
