1970 Porsche 911 2.3 S/T
A very fine and rare example
This 911 ST is a piece of Porsche motor sport history. The car has been extensively used in Germany racing in the early 1970s.
The car was delivered new as one of the very few Works-Porsche 911STs in 1970 to its first owner Hans Braun, a German gentleman racer by MAHAG in Munich / Germany. The engine number at delivery was 630 1552.
In 1970 only 15 works cars were built by Porsche factory with carburettor 2.3L engines (engine type was 911/22). Plus a number of cars were fitted afterwards with a factory supplied M491 ST package. The total number of M491 models cars is unknown.
The first owner Hans Braun was a German private race driver, who participated in this Porsche 911 ST at many events in 1970 – 1972. He sold the car in April 1972 to Ludwig Hornauer who raced it until the end of 1974 at German hill climbs and other racing events.
In the late 1970s 1138 went through a number of ownerships and was modified as many period racing cars to a street car.
In 2004 the current owner bought the car from the last American owner Jim Oppenheimer and restored it to the highest possible standard.
The body was restored by David Bonavita, the ex-head of prototyping at Pininfarina. All mechanical parts and the engine were restored by the Porsche specialist Irmgartz Motorsport.
The body has all relevant M491 specs as fenders, front hood and windows made of plastic. The engine has all relevant racing parts just as in 1970.
This amazing Porsche 911 ST is now for sale. It has a wonderful patina and comes with a large history file, invoices and DMSB/FIA pass. A truly unique opportunity to purchase a highly eligible piece of Porsche racing history.
