I am a sucker for almost any orange car. I love the color. I love its brightness and its depth and I think it’s a fantastic color on the 911. I have, on occasion, come across shades I didn’t like where the color looked, for lack of a better term, dull. There was no pop and it wasn’t for lack of cleanliness, it was just dull. The particular shade we see here, a Blood Orange 1969 Porsche 911S, located in Belgium, does not suffer from any such dullness. Blood Orange is a rarely seen color and though it is difficult to appreciate from the pictures we see here, it leans slightly toward the red end of the spectrum – as the name would suggest. I find it incredibly striking. Obviously, an orange car is not for everyone; there is zero subtlety and it will attract attention at all times. But if you can get around those issues, I think it’s one of the best. On a long-hood 911S? It’s stunning.

1969 Porsche 911 S
This is a unique opportunity to be the next proud owner of a 1969 Porsche 911 S.
The Porsche production records shows that this particular car with VIN 119 30 0007 was manufactured in 10/1968 and left the factory in Stuttgart – Zuffenhausen with the following specifications:
– Engine number : 639 0044
– Transmission number : 719 0029
– Body number : 1090001
– Exterior colour : blood orange
– Interior colour : Black vinyl
– Delivering dealer : factory owned car
The records show further that this particular 991S was used internally by the factory and was the company car of the Porsche Sales Manager at that time.
We therefore presume that the vehicle was fully equipped.
This car has been very well maintained and is still in a great condition. She is part of a private collection in Belgium.

A Blood Orange 911S is, indeed, a very valuable car, but this one is a long way from achieving this sort of asking price. While it appears more or less in fine shape, the condition is far from the sort of pristine state that commands top dollar. There also is the matter of supporting documentation to verify the originality of paint and mechanicals. That the ad states they “presume that the vehicle was fully equipped” suggests they don’t possess all of this documentation and that surely will hold back prospective buyers. Those issues aside (and they aren’t necessarily minor), the ad is right, this is a unique opportunity as a 911S in this sort of vintage color is rare to come across and should make for an excellent investment.
