Description

Porsche produced the 911E from 1969 to 1973. It was designed to be the most comfortable and drivable of the 911 range fitting between the 911T (Touring) and the 911S (Super). The benefits were better power and driveability whilst the interior had a few more comfort features, better brakes and gold script on the engine cover.

Sporting perhaps one of the best colour combinations for a 911 of this period of Gemini Blue paintwork with a contrasting black interior, this Porsche has all the hallmarks of a very desirable sports car. This particular example is an incredibly straight and solid ex-USA Coupé boasting a purposeful stance, and a powerful engine. On close inspection it's apparent that this car would benefit from a repaint, though it is still bright and presentable as is, and this was the way the vendor preferred it as he used it at his home in the US. Either an enthusiastic privateer or trade buyer could acquire this car and add value relatively easily which our vendor has allowed for with the guide price set today.

The engine fitted to this car is a correct 911E unit, (numbered *6210153), but it is not the matching engine for this car. Rather than the somewhat temperamental mechanical fuel injection system, this ‘E' engine has been converted to run on Weber carburetors resulting in excellent throttle response, and when combined with the balanced and determined handling of these early 911s, this makes for a tight, fun and fast drivers' car.

This Porsche has recently passed its MoT test certificate and the application for UK V5C registration is underway. It is thought that this will be with the car before the sale. Please direct any specific questions you may have about this car to us and we'll be happy to answer them thoroughly.]]>
