FEATURED BY SPEEDHOLICS
Throughout the 20th century, little has inspired as much innovation and social transformation, along with critical debate amongst designers, artists and theorists as the automobile. Porsche, among their many achievements, released what became one of the world’s most revered production cars in 1964. The 911 offered a driving experience unlike anything else while its shape soon became one of the most influential styling forms in car design. Even today, rarely has an automobile inspired the kind of passion in both car enthusiasts and the general public as the 911.
The 911 continually evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car. 1969 ushered in the first major changes to the model lineup. The unique and successful rear engine layout remained, as did the same basic styling. The rear track and wheelbase grew, while the overall length remained the same as the earlier cars. Mechanical fuel injection debuted as well as a new trim level, 911E. The 911E received its name from Einspritzung, the German term for injection. Fitting between the base-model 911T and top trim 911S, the 911E which replaced the 911L, carried various improvements in the finish, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and mechanicals, like vented disc brakes. The model years 1971-73 consisted of the same trim levels, all however received larger 2.4L engines with MFI (U.S. -market specific).
This restored 1973 E is finished in white. The interior has been restored in California with new carpets, headliner, trim, and groovy green leather by Autobahn Interiors. Furthermore, the car was tastefully fitted with Sport Seats with houndstooth inserts. Mechanically, the car carries a 2.4L “green case” engine with an MFI injection system that, in accordance with the official Porsche Redbook, is believed to be matching. The underside is as fresh as the top side, with components appearing to have been replaced or freshened. The car wears Bilstein shocks and rides on Fuchs alloy wheels restored by Harvey Weidman, wrapped in Vredestein Sprint Classic 185/70 HR15 tires. Although little is known of the car’s early history, a binder of receipts detailing the restoration is included in the sale.
Nearing its 60th anniversary, the Porsche 911 remains as coveted as ever. The current generation 911 serves the driver seeking the latest in today’s technology while each of the previous iterations provides a glimpse into the evolution of what has undoubtedly become a masterpiece of design and performance. The original F-Body 911, without question, remains one of the most historically significant automobiles of all time. This well-sorted 911E in handsome colors is ready to be enjoyed on backroads, driveways, and Concours fields.
