If you like the idea of a classic 911, but secretly desire a 21st century sports car, then the Classic Touring Series II by Paul Stephens Porsche is just for you. Each car is a lovingly updated classic, with vastly increased power and all the beauty of an early 911. Each Classic Touring is bespoke. Original body shells are subject to a rigorous nut and bold restoration to better than new standards. Colour? Whatever you require.
The interior may look original. In fact, all interior panels and controls are bespoke to these Paul Stephens Porsches. If you’re looking for a steering wheel specifically tailored to your needs, this is your car.
The real punch is at the rear. In period, these 911s would produce a respectable (for the era) 190bhp. The flat six fitted to the Classic Touring is good for 290bhp, a whole 100bhp more. The 60mph mark is reached in five seconds. Top speed, for those autobahn trips, is 160mph. You’ll be leaving supercars in your wake.
The 911 2.2 and 2.4 models from 1970-1973 are probably the prettiest cars Porsche have ever made and the ’S’ variant is particularly desirable with its higher performance engine. Iconic status was sealed when Steve McQueen used his road car for the opening scene of the film Le Mans in 1971. The Paul Stephens Classic Touring has been created for the discerning owner who appreciates the authentic timeless style of the 911 from this period but seeks increased refinement and attention to detail, in a car that is suitable for daily use.
