Footnotes

  • Porsche's long-running and much loved 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the '901', but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964 had become the '911' following Peugeot's complaints about the use of '0' model numbers. The preceding Type 356's rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower.
    The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. Improved handling courtesy of a lengthened wheelbase arrived in 1969 and then in 1970 the 911's air-cooled, flat six engine underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 litres. By this time the models on offer had stabilised at three: the 911T, 911E and 911S, all of which were available as either a closed coupé or Targa convertible. First seen in 2.0-litre guise in 1969, the 911E was positioned between the entry level 'T' and top-of-the-range 'S' models.
    One of only 52 of its type sold new in the UK, this right-hand drive Porsche 911E comes with a comprehensive file of invoices and photographs of its restoration, which was completed for the previous owner by marque specialists, Export 56. 'SJN 274G' is a past show car for Porsche GB and appeared in Porsche Post, October 2005 edition. Finished in Signal Orange with hound's tooth check interior, the car is offered with Swansea V5 document and current MoT.
