THE PORSCHE 911E

Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These 'giant killers' could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and their dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts.

Starting in 1964 with the original 911, Porsche has produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sportscars that could compete with much more powerful cars thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling and offered a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car.

1969 ushered in the first major changes to the iconic Porsche 911. Retaining the unique and successful rear engine layout as well as the same basic styling, the majority of the changes to the 911 were internal. Dimensionally, the rear track and wheelbase grew, while the overall length stayed the same as the earlier cars. Mechanical fuel injection debuted this year as well in top-of-the-line 911S and the new 911E. The 911E received its name from Einspritzung, the German term for injection. Slotted between the base-model 911T and the potent 911S, the E, which replaced the 911L 'Luxus', featured improvements including a leather wrapped steering wheel, velour carpeting, vented brake discs, and golden script on the rear deck. The 911E proved popular, with 2,826 examples sold in 1969 alone.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1969 911E Coupe left Karmann's Osnarbrück production facility in the summer of 1969 sporting burgundy paint over a black interior, the same combination it possesses today. Fitted with fog lights, alloy Fuchs wheels, and its original golden badging, this example of Porsche's most renowned sportscar is very well presented throughout. At some point, its original engine was replaced with a period correct unit but its fuel injection system was replaced with a throaty set of Weber carburetors.

With its handsome color combination and excellent details, this well sorted coupe is equally suited to be passionately driven and deliver Porsche's inimitable driving dynamics to the driver as it is to be shown at marque and club events within the active Porsche Club.
