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 quicker in acceleration up to 160 km/h (99 mph).
This early 1971 911 2.2 E is a fantastic example. Finished in correct silver metallic and black leather upholstery, this car has been fully restored, with new leather interior, new carpets, headliner, door panels and gauges, what’s more with factory sport seats and date coded seat belts. More importantly, the car has been upgraded with a more powerful 2.4 litre E engine built to ‘S’ spec, and is producing over 200 bhp, which, along with a Porsche sports exhaust, makes this a much more enjoyable car to drive.
The car’s original matching numbers engine is boxed up, and is sold with the car after a full engine rebuild earlier this year by specialists Salvador Alvarez Saavedra.
The car has spent all of its life in California, and was sold six years ago to the current owner, who is now only the third owner from new; it has covered a mere 84,000 miles in this time. Offered with excellent chrome all around, along with excellent panel gaps around the car, this fantastic example offers an opportunity to return it to its original specification, or to continue to enjoy the car’s current set up and look after the car’s original engine.
The car is sitting on Pirelli P6 tyres with Fuchs alloy wheels. Sold with Belgian registration documents and technical pass (MOT equivalent), this car is ready to be enjoyed immediately.
