The Porsche 911S was immediately competitive both in rallies and on track. A conversion kit allowed the power to be increased from 130 to 160 horsepower. With the start of the 1970 racing season, it was primarily the 2.2-litre 911S model that Porsche used to create race-ready versions. The engine was available in several specific versions for rallies or the track, with displacements that could approach 2.3 litres. In 1972, the car would then have a further, quite radical development, with 2.5 liter engines. It was also at Le Mans that the 911S competitions were used extensively by private teams.

Jacques Rey entered two Porsche 911S in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Number 66, driven by Jean-Claude Guérie and Claude Mathurin, had to retire quite early due to electrical problems. Things didn't go any better for the other car, which was taken out of the race shortly after due to an engine failure.
