1969 Porsche 911 S Rally Car is a Hoot to Drive [w/Video]

It’s not every day that an auto journalist gets to drive an ex-works Porsche 911 rally car, let alone one that won a world rally event. EVO’s Richard Meaden had the privilege of driving the 1969 Porsche 911 S rally car, one of only six vehicles built by the automaker specifically for rallying.

Besides winning the 1969 Acropolis Rally, the car was also used as an endurance racer, entering the Le Mans 24 Hours three times. On top of all that racing pedigree, it is road-legal, which means its future owner will get to drive it from one vintage rally to another.

I didn’t throw in the words “future owner” for nothing, because this car will go under the hammer at RM Auctions’ event in Paris on February 4. The house expects it to go for anything between €1.1 million ($1.24 million) and €1.3 million ($1.47 million).

You can learn more about its racing history and about what it is like to drive by watching the video posted below.
