The basic Porsche 911 design has been in constant production since its introduction in 1963. Only in 1998 did the air-cooled six cylinder engine revert to water cooling. Throughout its life the 911 has been subject to engine capacity increases and upgrades to satisfy an eager following. The 2.2 L 911E was called ‘The secret weapon from Zuffenhausen’. Despite the lower power output of the 911E compared to the 911S, the 911E was actually quicker in acceleration up to 160 km/h (99 mph).
Originally delivered to the dry state of California in 1969, this 911E Sportomatic has been preserved over the years in fantastic rust-free condition. Residing in Holland for over 20 years, more recently the 911E has enjoyed a comprehensive restoration.
Very nicely finished in Blood Orange with a retrimmed black leather interior, and with only 1,000 kilometers since its restoration, this is one of the nicest examples available today. The 911E is offered with photo documentation of the restoration and a Porsche COA.
