This particular Porsche 911S Coupé -Narrow body- was ordered new by sir R. Armbruster in magnificent ‘Ice Green Metallic’ over a green leatherette interior. Delivered new by Porsche Wilmington in North Carolina on 24th February of 1975 and well equipped with an electric sunroof, a 5-speed manual gearbox, 15” alloy Fuchs wheels, A/C, …
Nevertheless, sir Armbruster enjoyed his ‘911S’ for only 2 years and just 11.000 Miles, after which he sold the car to the second and long-term owner, who kept the car until 2016.
In 2017 the car was bought by ‘Porsche Centre Lorient’ -an official Porsche Classic partner in France- to start a full restoration to original/European specification.
With the final result, the Porsche centre managed to win the award ‘Coup de Coeur du jury’ at the Porsche France ‘Concours de Restauration 2016 – 2017’. A great result after a tremendous effort!
Meanwhile the car just drove 1500km after the restoration and the result is still breath-taking! Will you be the next to fall in love with this icon?
