Description

The Porsche 911 E offered customers a host of luxury options to complement the improved 2.4-liter fuel-injected motor. Available in either coupe or Targa form, just 2,421 examples were produced for 1973.

The example on offer was delivered new to Continental Porsche of Tucson, Arizona, and spent much of its life in California. According to factory records, this E Targa came well equipped with tinted glass, Koni shock absorbers, front and rear stabilizer bars, and ATS alloy wheels. Optional driving lights were installed by the dealership.

In 2012, marque specialist California Porsche Restoration in Fallbrook, California, treated this 911 Targa to a thorough nut-and-bolt restoration. The comprehensive restoration totaled over $134,000 in receipts and included a bare-metal refinish in the original Signal Yellow. The interior was equipped with desirable sport seats, trimmed with period-correct houndstooth inserts, and both motor and transaxle were removed from the car with any needed parts either reconditioned or replaced with factory-correct components.

Accompanied by handbooks, tool roll, jack, spare tire, keys, registration records and service receipts, and a CD of restoration photographs, this impeccable 2.4-liter E Targa has the thorough documentation to make it a truly outstanding example of an early air-cooled Porsche 911.
