1965 Porsche 911

We are pleased to offer on behalf of one of our clients this very early and rare 1965 Porsche 911 Coupe.

For many years, 2shores has been offering selected, finest grade examples of
air-cooled Porsches. This very early Porsche 911 Coupe is one of those examples!

Production of the Porsche 911 began in September 1964, with the first 911s exported to the US in February 1965.
The first models of the 911 had a rear-mounted 130 hp, Type 901/01 flat-6 engine, in the “boxer” configuration like the 356, the engine is air-cooled and displaces 1,991 cc (2.0 L) as compared to the 356’s four-cylinder, 1,582 cc (1.6 L) unit. The car had four seats although the rear seats were small and it is usually called a 2+2 rather than a four-seater. A four or five-speed “Type 901” manual transmission was available. The styling was largely penned by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche, son of Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche. Butzi Porsche initially came up with a notchback design with proper space for seating two rear passengers but Ferry Porsche insisted that the 356’s successor was to use its fastback styling. 7 prototypes were built based on Butzi Porsche’s original design and were internally called the Porsche 754 T7. Erwin Komenda, the leader of the Porsche car body construction department who initially objected, was also involved later in the design.

This car on offer is very early production vehicle (VIN# 300318) and finished in beautiful Irish Green (6406) over black interior.

The car was delivered new on February 18th 1965 to German dealer Schmidt und Kock in Bremen, Germany. The owner history is only lost for 4 short years, when an American Porsche enthusiast bought the car on February 20th 1969. That owner kept the car for 41 years (!) up until 2010 when the Porsche was brought back home to Germany. Since then, it has been in numerous collections, but not road registered.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire such an early Porsche 911 (VIN# 300318)) with all the unique features only the early 65 cars have.

The engine runs. The car is a largely rust-free and a solid example in a stunning color combination.
The current owner carefully had the car dry ice cleaned and some body work executed, but it is generally un-restored and will need further attention to be road worthy. This is a 100% complete car, fully numbers matching with original Kardex card.

Please study all the photos closely to evaluate the condition of this car!

Videos of the engine running are available on request!

Located in Germany.
