THE PORSCHE 911

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 solidified 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 as 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 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 MOTORCAR OFFERED

This incredible, numbers matching 1970 Porsche 911E Karmann Coupe is the recent recipient of a total nut-and-bolt restoration which has left the car in concours condition. During the restoration, the iconic body was media blasted and brought to a bare metal shell before being finished in its original color of Albert Blue. While the car was fully disassembled, every nut and bolt was restored or polished to its original factory finish. The interior was completely refinished with new leather seats, headliner, carpets, authentic-style matching Coco mats, and original factory door pockets. The original, matching numbers engine and transmission have been fully rebuilt by a well-known marque specialist. Every shock, spring, and bushing has been replaced with the correct items. All five "deep 6" date stamped original Fuchs were refinished and anodized by Al Reed to as new condition. The restoration process has been extensively documented in the cars well-organized history file, which also includes a copy of the Porsche supplied Certificate of Authenticity. An upgrade to leather and a stainless steel exhaust system appear to be the sole variations between the cars current and as delivered state.

The serious Porsche collector seeking an early 911 Coupe ready to be enjoyed on their favorite backroad or competing for trophies on the concours field need look no further than this outstanding example. With its handsome color combination and excellent details, this superbly restored, well-sorted Coupe is ready to make its next owner proud.
