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, offering 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 stunning 1973 Porsche 911E Coupe is the recent recipient of an extensive 2-year restoration. Beginning with a very solid and original car, the body was completely stripped before being finished in its original color of code 13, Bahia Red. The interior has been completely refinished with new carpets, headliner, map pockets, refinished gauges, and a new dashboard. During the interior restoration, the car was tastefully upgraded with RS Sport Seats containing Houndstooth inserts. Mechanically, the original matching numbers engine has been fully rebuilt and resealed in addition to the MFI injection system being re-freshened and re-calibrated. Under the car, new Koni shocks have been installed and all bushings and suspension parts have been replaced or freshened. Rounding out the restoration, the five original date stamped Fuchs alloys wheels have been restored in California in the correct anodized factory finish by a well-known wheel specialist. New Dunlop 195/65 R15 tires have been fitted to all five wheels and new aluminum lug nuts have been installed.

In accordance with its COA, this U.S. delivered example retains its factory fitted electric sunroof and Blaupunkt radio. The car is fitted with S trim that includes aluminum rocker trim panels and S style factory front Spoiler. The U.S. required rubber bumperettes were removed in the front and earlier chrome bumperettes were used in the rear. European H4 Bosch Headlamps have been installed along with factory Bosch front and rear Euro marker lenses. Accompanying the car are its original manuals, factory tool kit, restoration invoices, and a COA. This well sorted, beautifully finished 1973 911E offers an opportunity to acquire the final year of the highly desirable long hood, air cooled MFI 911 that is fully sorted and ready to be enjoyed.
