Ordered by the police 1971 – special Porsche is looking for a new home

Over the years, the police have had a little bit of everything. And they still kind of do. In 1971, the National Police in Sweden ordered several brand new Porsches.

It doesn't happen every day. But it was still quite special to be a traffic police officer in Gothenburg in 1972.

The year before, the National Police in Stockholm ordered a bunch of 911s from Porsche's factory in Zuffenhausen.

Between 1965 and 1973, there were a total of 23 Porsche 911s in the service of the Swedish police. The cars were, among other things, used to chase speeders. But to sit behind the wheel, officers first had to complete a special choir training.

– So far, the low, fast Porsche is attracting a lot of attention from road users. The police are visible, and that is the intention.

– It is also intended that the Porsche should become an increasingly common sight on the roads. It is becoming common for the police to drive in a sports car, wrote Ingemar Hesslefors, in the publication GT 1965, according to Sweden's police museum.

The propagation thing just never happened. In 1973, the program with the Porsches was discontinued due to excessive costs. Subsequently, nine of the cars were scrapped, while the police museum got one of the cars. The rest were sold to private individuals.

The car, which is now for sale, is one of the 13 911 T that the police in Gothenburg made available in 1971. However, it was only in police service for a single year.

After this, the National Police kept the car until 1975, when it was sold to a private person north of Gothenburg. Here the car changed owners once again and was rebuilt.

This is how it went according to Bilwebauctions , which has the car for sale today, several of the police's Porsches from that time.

Under the rear-mounted bonnet, we don't find the car's original 2.2-litre, but a larger 2.4-litre case. Despite the larger cubic capacity, there is only a modest 125 horsepower to do well with.

But the National Police in Sweden must have considered that everything was plenty when the car was ordered in 1971. Here at home, as far as is known, the police are never short of Porsches, but then they have access to so much else. Read more about it here .
