THE PORSCHE 911E

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 911E rolled off the line at Stuttgart factory at the end of March, 1969. Finished Polo Red, it was nicely optioned with both driver and passenger sports seats in black leatherette with pepita inserts and headrests. Destined for the home market, it was delivered through Otto Gloeckler's dealership to Jersohke Volkmann of Bad Hamburg outside of Frankfurt on October 1, 1969. An enthusiastic Porsche owner, Mr. Volkmann had covered some 8,000km by the time he brought the car back to Gloeckler for service on November 12 of the same year.

The interim history of the car is not, as of yet, documented but the 911 was in California from at least 2006 until it was acquired by the current owner five years ago. Still finished in its original color of Polo Red, the seats have since been replace with leatherette wrapped standard seats with headrests. A wood rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of a gauge cluster that has been converted from metric to Imperial units. The original, fuel injected 2-liter engine was at some point replaced with the current motor—which is the correct type but appears to have originally been in a Sportomatic equipped 911E. Restored to the fine condition it appears today, 911s have proved to be a staple of any substantial car collection and this tidy example will surely find itself in the hands of an enthusiast owner.
