This RHD matching numbers – original engine and gearbox – 1970 911S has an impressive period competition history and has been extensively restored by Porsche specialists, the car is UK registered, taxed and MoT’d.

Manufactured by Porsche Stuttgart in 1970 and supplied new via the Hong Kong Porsche importer Jebsen & Co Motors to the Macau Grand Prix’s most famous character Teddy Yip, founder of the Theodore Racing team. Finished in Tangerine with Black interior.

The car was collected from Porsche in Stuttgart by Herbert Adamczyk of Jebson Motors who, with his girlfriend, drove it around Europe for two months to run the engine in prior to the car being raced by Teddy Yip at the Macau Grand Prix in November.

Once in Hong Kong it was carefully prepared for racing by Jebsen Motors and entered in the Macau GP meeting by Teddy Yip’s Theodore Racing Team. Driven by Yip’s racing partner Dr Henry Lee the car finished 1st overall in the ACP Final.

In the early ‘70s the car was raced in Malaysia while Theodore Racing clocked up a record six further victories in the Macau Grand Prix with drivers including World Champions Ayrton Senna, Alan Jones and Keke Rosberg before moving on to Formula One.

The 911S was first registered for road use in Hong Kong on the 2nd March 1972 by Yip but he was not persuaded to part company with the car until the mid-nineties whereupon it was shipped to the UK for specialist restoration.

After initial re-commissioning by Autofarm, an extensive restoration was subsequently completed to concours standards by UK Porsche specialists Gantspeed. Invoices on file for their work exceed £100,000.

911 030 1272 is surely the most interesting and well-restored RHD 2.2S but is no concours special having come 1st overall in the regularity class of the 2012 Tour Britannia.

Taylor and Crawley was founded in 1937 and sold Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo cars from their Mayfair premises. After the war, they became the UK Mercedes-Benz importers and main agents before importing Maseratis and then becoming Alfa Romeo dealers. Scion of the Taylor family, son Michael, was a successful racing driver in the 1950s, being a factory Lotus sports car driver eventually graduating to Grands Prix before his career was cut short by car failure in the tragic Belgium Grand Prix at Spa in 1960. David Clark, already an established purveyor of sports and racing cars, was a friend of Michael Taylor and acquired the company in the 1980s when Michael retired. Since then the company has been prominent in the Historic car market, especially with competition cars.
