1969 Porsche 911 E to R Specification  

Description

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.

This Porsche 911 R is based on a 1969 Porsche 911 E with 901/09 engine and 5-speed gearbox 901/13. Delivered new to Japan in 1969, the car had just one owner until it was imported to Germany in 2012. After an extensive rebuild to 911 R specification, this 911 was painted in its original livery of Irish green and to works rallye specification.

The amount of labour, carried out by the marque specialists is too extensive to print in the auction catalogue but is available for interested parties in the car’s history file. There is an experts report showing a valuation of €150,000 and a condition of 2+,  and much more documentation showing in detail the work that has been carried out to obtain this amazing rallye 911 R to works homologation. Surely a snip at today’s estimate and as such not to be missed.
