Porsche 911S (B Series) ~ 1968-1969

The 911S was updated to B series specification, in line with the 911E. Like the E, the sportier S gained fuel-injection which boosted power to a useful 170bhp. To help cope with the extra demands this put on the engine, an additional oil-cooler was fitted in the front right-hand wing.

Unlike, the 911E, the S retained conventional front suspension to give sportier handling at the expense of ride quality (although the E’s hydropneumatic system was offered on the 911S as a ‘comfort’ option).

The Fuchs alloy wheels gained in width to 6Jx15 and were fitted with 185/70VR15 tyres, that went some way to improving the handling; which had already been improved by the relocation of the rear wheels by 57mm.

Other changes were as for the 911E, while the new 911S otherwise retained the features of the previous A series version.

Today, the 911S is the best of the B series range, and this version is the best and most sought-after of the 2.0-litre cars to go for – if you can find a good one.
