VALUE AT A GLANCE Con­di­tion Price Per­for­mance Over­all

911 Porsche World - - Practical Porsche -

doors shut, the more log­i­cal door fur­ni­ture, the op­er­a­tion of the 915 gearshift; ev­ery­thing about it feels newer. It’s a sort of mid-gen­er­a­tion car; this 2.7 S comes into the same bracket as a 3.0 Car­rera and SC, al­most a 3.2 Car­rera, de­spite its nar­row body, though it con­trives to feel some way live­lier than those big­ger-en­gined mod­els. It’s done a mod­est 19,000 miles, so in prac­tice it’s hardly been any­where. The en­gine also feels flex­i­ble and more able to dis­pense power in a lower rev range than its older sib­lings, and the 915 gear­ing is longer, too. It is also very quick in terms of ac­cel­er­a­tion and get­ting off the line and, all in all, it’s a very sprightly car. The steer­ing is well-weighted, it also feels light, def­i­nitely an S for the esses, and ac­tu­ally, given its orig­i­nal con­di­tion and low miles, this is quite a re­mark­able find. PW
