1967 911 S Coupe

Year: 1967  |  Generation: Early Years  |  Units built: 1,823
Engine: Flat-6  | Power: 160 bhp | 0 – 60 mph: 6.5s | Top Speed: 140mph


We considered adding the Targa from 1967, but ultimately, we felt the 911 S was a more important model. The 911 S was introduced to increase the performance potential of the very successful 911. It had a more powerful engine along with a number of chassis enhancements that made it very desirable. Becoming the flag­ship of the fleet, the $6990, 180-hp, 6-cylinder 911S was loaded with performance and luxury features.


Distinctive 5-leaf wheels from Fuchs that were made from forged magnesium-alloy, a leather-covered steering wheel rim, extra instrumentation, an auxiliary gaso­line heater, fog lights, pile carpets, and waffled padding on the dash (all pretty luxurious back in 1967 folks).


The tradition of race-inspired 911s really started here. A 2.0-liter flat-six producing 180-hp with a 7,200 rpm redline in 1967 was pretty special. This was clearly a more powerful and sportier car and much better than other cars of the same era.
