During its early years, the 911 was updated frequently as Porsche refined the famously idiosyncratic design to improve the car. One of the most significant changes came for 1969, when the rear wheels were moved aft, reducing the amount of weight behind the rear axle line. For 1970, the engine displacement increased from 2.0 to 2.2 liters, bringing additional power to all three trim levels then on offer. While displacement and power were increased again for 1972, these motors had reduced compression and lost some of the revvy, effervescent character of the 2.2 liter cars. Accordingly, the 2.2 liter 911 is the pick of the bunch for Porsche cognoscenti, retaining the lively raw character of the early cars but coupled with meaningful chassis improvements which make it a safer, faster car. This specific car is a Model Year 1970, purchased in Germany by its actual owner in the early 2000s. It is finished in beautiful Alpen Blue over its original and unrestored Beige leather and pleated hound’s tooth fabric.
