1976 Porsche 911S Coupe Signature Edition

What was the first special edition 911? It seems like the chicken and egg argument, if I’m honest. But certainly in the running must be the 1976 911 Signature Edition. Created to commemorate…Ferry Porsche’s signature, apparently….the Signature Edition treatment was applied to just 200 911s, all of which were finished in Platinum Metallic with color-matched wheels over a brown-beige leatherette and tweed interior. The pièce de résistance was the steering wheel, though, replete with Porsche’s signature embossed in the center. These are rare cars to find in the market today, so it was worth taking a look at this 911S Coupe for sale:

It seems there was a period where few 911s escaped modification, and this one is no different – it’s got color-matched Fuchs instead of cookie cutters, and Turbo Carrera-look bodywork now makes it much more visually impressive, though arguably probably hurts the collector value. Condition is top, but then the market seems to have softened on some air-cooled 911s – and this one hasn’t escaped that trend, either. It bid to $60,000 on P-Car Market in August 2019, which given that it’s still for sale over a year later for less than 10% more than that probably indicates that the reserve should have been lowered. But traveling back to ’18 perhaps points out why it was not lowered more; we listed this same car with the same seller just over two years ago, and the asking price then was $114,990. The market correction on these cars is pretty amazing to see, but they’re not exactly cheap-as-chips today. Still, this one is a lot more compelling at $60k than it is at double that amount!

  1. I am old enough to remember when these were new. They were very unique compared to everything else out there at the time. It is still a nice looking car, but it has had most of the collectibility modified out of it. Plus the “turbo Carrera” badge on a non-turbo car is just wrong.

  2. As you guys have noted…. This car has been offered all over the planet for a price well over its value for the last several years. The added on wide body, the 16 inch Fuch’s and all of the other mods more than kill any collector value this car may have had. It sure looks like a nice resto mod that is just begging for a nice hot rod motor. If you’re interested in buying it, don’t fret, its not going anywhere anytime soon at its current listed price.

  3. Is there something wrong with the steering wheel? Why is only the center black? That’s really hideous like that.

  4. On the other hand, non-molested versions have done pretty well lately:

    One final plea to the sellers out there: please stop using the “creative” filters for your pictures. They are distracting and make me wonder what is being hidden.

    The 75 and 76 models are probably the least desirable air cooled cars. They were the thermal reactor models and unless modified, there were issues with the 2.7 in those cars. For the money being asked for this one, you could buy a very nice 3.2 Carrera or maybe a G50 car…and certainly a Carrera 2…all of them much better cars.
