The Porsche 911 E is considered by many to be one of the quintessential air-cooled Porsche 911 experience’s and is a favourite among enthusiasts. The 911 E was powered by a 2,195cc flat-six engine for model years 1970-1971, which produced an impressive 153bhp. It is paired to a five-speed manual transmission, giving it an exhilarating driving experience. The exterior of the 911 E features a classic and elegant design, reminiscent of the earliest short wheelbase 911’s, but with a slightly lengthened wheelbase, to improve handling and safety. Few cars provide such a visceral driving experience as an air-cooled Porsche 911, these early cars are always popular, and this particular example could be perfect for using as it is or taking to the next level.
The present owner purchased this car in 2017 as a project which needed to be finished. It had already been painted in this fetching shade of Bahama Yellow but was missing various interior and trim pieces which our vendor has managed to locate and get the car to the condition it is in today. Once the car was complete, it was then taken to a renown Porsche specialist by the name of Dave Broughton, who he describes as ‘nothing short of a genius’, who managed to get the car running as it should. The overall condition of the car is very presentable and it could certainly be enjoyed at any Porsche 75th anniversary celebrations this year where it is sure to be admired. We are informed the car starts and runs well, and that it drives just as good as it looks.
The car is provided with a V5C registration and if you are looking for an early air-cooled 911 to use and enjoy this summer, this car will tick all the boxes. It is being offered with a very sensible estimate and proposes huge potential for the next chapter of its life.
