By now, we are all familiar with discussion of the somewhat atypical handling traits of the 911. As a rear-engined rear-wheel drive sports car it remains a peculiar design, though one that has been enormously successful. Early in its life those traits were magnified by the 911’s shorter wheelbase. In 1969 the entire 911 range (along with the 912) received a 57mm increase in its wheelbase. The overall length of the cars was carried over from previous years, but the rear wheels were moved further towards the rear of the car, providing better handling balance and mitigating some of the 911’s skittish, tail-happy nature. This would be of particular importance to Porsche’s highest performing model, the 911S. With its lighter weight and increased power the S gave Porsche customers the ultimate expression of these rear-engined cars, but further increased the need for attentiveness while piloting them. Of course, their short-lived nature makes the short-wheelbase models somewhat of an anomaly among the range and therefore quite valuable. The example here is a restored Light Ivory 1967 Porsche 911S Coupe, located in Houston.

There’s no way around it: $325,000 is a lot of money. I wanted to check Hagerty to confirm my assumption that this was priced above the top of the market and indeed it is. However, as crazy as it may sound the price isn’t as absurd as I initially thought. 1967 was the first year of the 911S and by 1969 the wheelbase would be extended making the SWB 911S a rare commodity within the range. Given the crazy values commanded by any long-hood 911S it then becomes more realistic to imagine a substantial premium for this model year. We may wonder how long the rapid escalation of values on the 911 market can continue, but for a collector a first-year, top-of-the-range, model such as this one would be just the sort of thing to place one’s faith in.
