The Porsche 911 is perhaps the most timeless design ever seen in motoring history. The car dominated its class as soon as it was launched in September 1963. Today, albeit very much more developed, it continues to attract adulation from enthusiasts and the motoring press alike.
This unconventional and charismatic car evolved at an astonishing pace in its early life, with significant developments occurring annually during the late sixties and early seventies. One of the most significant years for 911 development was 1972. There was a notable increase in cubic capacity to 2,341cc, and power output rose by 10bhp to 165bhp in this ‘E’ model. The wheelbase was further lengthened and the shock absorbers altered, aiding high speed stability and reducing front end lift.
This lovely example in light beige with black leather interior was originally sold in the USA by Porsche Cars Pacific and was then imported to the UK where it was bought by a Mr Price. He then took the car to Germany where it was restored. All the interior leather has been replaced and all instruments have been refurbished. The engine and transmission have also been completely refurbished. This 911E is in wonderful overall condition and has to be seen to be really appreciated.
