1974 Porsche 911S

Porsche certainly has a history of doing interesting, and vibrant, shades of green on their cars. They’ve also made available many of the darker and metallic green colors we typically see on the market, but it’s the mint greens, viper greens, and, like the car we see here, lime greens that really stand out and draw loads of attention. This isn’t a completely original 911S, but Lime Green is the original color and the non-original aesthetic alterations, like the addition of the ducktail spoiler, tend to enhance the overall look of this car rather than detract from it. The mid-year 911s are not always the most popular, but when they can be had in one of the more interesting colors Porsche made available, then they become quite a bit more of a talking point. Here we have a Lime Green 1973 Porsche 911S Coupe, located in California, with 128,951 miles on it.

There’s a lot to like here and the overall condition of the car appears to be quite good. We’ve previously discussed the variety of issues the mid-year 911s possess, but if one were to go after one of these, then colors like this one certainly make for something more interesting. It’s debatable how much long term value these will hold, but as a driver it could be quite fun. Bidding currently sits at $37,900 with reserve unmet. That’s higher than where we typically see a 911S of this vintage sell, but it’s still well within reason.

  1. Nice colour, gorgeous seats!

  2. I like the color (& seats!) too, I’d probably ditch the wing though. The lines look so good w/o it.
