Considered as one of the most sought after first generation 911 models, the 1970 911 S featured an upgraded 2.2 litre engine developing 180hp.
Specific to the S models engine was a re-profiled camshaft, larger valves, improved porting, higher compression and larger jets for the Weber carburettors. This resulted in an additional 30 horsepower, improved torque and a higher redline which peaked at 7300rpm. An ignition cut-out was fitted to interrupt spark to the plugs near maximum rpm.
Chassis upgrades include a rear anti-roll bar, Koni shocks and ventilated discs which replaced the standard solid rotors. Special gear ratios were installed in the 5-speed transmission including an overdrive in fifth gear, allowing the car to accelerate from 0-100km/h in eight seconds.
