Porsche 911S Sedan: amazing 4-doors 911

This car seems like Porsche really launched 4-door sedan based on the 911 model. It looks quite family-style. However, this is the one-of-kind custom model of 1967 that has an interesting history.

The 4-door 911 project was stroke out by William Dick Jr., the Texas distributor and collector of awesome cars at the end of 1960s. He wanted to surprise his wife presenting spacious and extraordinary car for the Christmas in 1967.

The model was customized by Dick Trautman and Tom Barns from Culver City (California). They bought a used and slightly damaged original car and split it in two to extend car frame. At the same time, the real challenge was production of completely new roof as the previous one could no longer be used. The roof might not only be a Porsche-like, but also correspond to new specifications. The car became 20-in longer.

The center of the car was enhanced with additional vertical tension pillars and pillars of back doors. It is funny but the back door mirrored the front ones. With higher weight, the kit wheels were replaced with new ones – Pirelli Cinturato BN 72

The interior corresponded to the idea of luxury sedan. Expensive orange-brown leather, wooden panel and wooden rear floor. There was also a funny story with the colour of leather: before the project started, Dick Jr. got an order for a pair of leather boots, he liked the colour and sent samples to the working shop that produced seats for the 911S.

The car is still owned by William Dick: as it was planned, he presented it to his wife as the Christmas gift. Thus, Dick kept the project closed – it was published in customizing magazines only in few months after completion. Initially the car was green, but then repainted into wine-colour. The current location of the sedan is unknown: there is no information that the car was out the Dick family, so it most likely keeps standing in their garage.
