It’s a long hood Porsche 911 S, it’s tangerine, and it’s just $55,000. Perhaps as much as any car in recent history, long hood Porsche 911s have experienced a veritable explosion in value. And in no case is this more evident than those adorned with the rare and desirable “S” option group. When the buyer of a new 911 checked the box for the S option group their car came equipped with a 180hp engine, Koni shocks, a rear anti-roll bar, ventilated brake discs and special gear ratios in the five-speed transmission. The result was a 911 that would run from 0-60 in 8 seconds and helped solidify Porsche’s reputation as one of the world’s greatest sports car manufacturers. Today there is a huge demand for these cars and they regularly attain six figure numbers at auction. We were surprised, then, to find this clean and presentable 911 S on thesamba.com for the otherwise bargain price of just $55,000. Tangerine is an incredibly desirable color and when combined with the S option group and lack of a sunroof makes this an even more valuable 911. We’d want to know much more about the car, the quality of its restoration and whether or not the engine is original, but at this price the 911 looks to be a winning ticket.
