The 911E was Porsche’s intermediate performance offering from 1969-1973. The 911T was Touring, 911E for “Einspritz” or fuel injection, and finally the 911S for Super. Everyone wants a 911S but the values and more importantly the availability make the 911S a car that is hard to reach for most enthusiasts. Taking another look at the line of cars offered for this era you can see the 911S was an autobahn king with its great top end. Both the 911E and 911T were much more drivable in traffic conditions and around city streets. Flash forward 38 years later and we find a greater population and much more congested daily traffic conditions. These days you can hardly use the top end power and long legs of the 911S, what you really need is low and mid range power to drive spiritedly for when the road is clean in your favor. The 911T and 911E are much more usable cars these days.

 

The 911S and 911E are very alike. They share everything in their build except for the hot tuning of the S engine. All trim, suspension, and appearance are the same between the two cars, even the famous Mechanical Fuel Injection that gives these cars such an amazing sound is the same. In fact it is a known fact that when running neck and neck the 911E will accelerate faster than the 911S up to 60mph. The 911T shares no engine performance features of the E and S.

 

If you have never driven a short stroke mechanically injected sports car engine then you will be in for a treat when driving this car. The sound is amazing and the acceleration is exhilarating. The short stroke engines love to rev. The racing inspired fuel injection gives huge amounts of power over carburetion while delivering very reasonable gas mileage. There is no other car that can rev like a 69-71 Porsche, deliver ample horsepower, handle better than most new cars, and cost under $100k.

 

This car has just undergone a yearlong full restoration.The car was completely disassembled and repainted. Engine and transmission were gone through (brought back to original running and cosmetic SHOW condition), all suspension has been rebuilt, wheels refinished and brakes renewed, new interior trim fitted, and finally all bright work replaced or reconditioned. The car has no rust and never needed any rust repair during the restoration. Miles read 87,000 and may possibly be actual mileage. This car came from an elderly local San Diego man who claimed to be the 3rd owner.
