Great cars just don’t happen; they’re always the result of years of development and refinement. Such is the case with one of the greatest sports cars ever built, the Porsche 911. Introduced in 1963, its iconic design stayed in production until 1989. Certainly, very few cars can lay claim to staying in production for 28 years, but the 911 proved just how great a sports car could be. The result was a car with a long and stellar history both on and off the race track. In the present day, these iconic sports cars have a life of their own in the collector market by competing in vintage racing and rally events while also being regular features at concours shows all over the world.

Offered here is a hallmark chapter from Porsche’s history in this fine 1970 Porsche 911E Coupe. As Porsche builds go, chassis number 9110200496 with engine 6201428 was a nicely optioned car with Fuchs aluminum alloy five-spoke lightweight wheels and a rare rear exhaust apron. It also left the factory with U.S. specifications, meaning that it had sealed-beam headlamps, a speedometer that recorded in miles per hour, and a lighting group that was compliant with U.S. DOT regulations. This 911E has been treated to a high quality repaint in its original factory color of Conda Green, a very rare and attractive color. The Porsche factory appearance group also added full instrumentation, premium quality carpet and wider rubber trim on the bumpers. The exterior appearance is also nicely set off with a set of front and rear bumper guards and stainless rocker panel covers. The interior was recently treated to new carpeting and the dashboard was refinished in correct black vinyl. Driving is comfortable with bucket seats in a cockpit that is truly a “driver’s” environment. Instrumentation is straight ahead of the driver and this Porsche still retains its factory Blaupunkt radio for a classic period-correct look. This is also a matching numbers car that is powered by a 2.2-litre flat six with mechanical fuel-injection that makes for 155 horsepower. This engine has been completely rebuilt and runs excellent and appearance-wise the engine compartment is clean and well-sorted. Power reaches the rear wheels through a five-speed gearbox and the Fuchs alloy wheels keeps it glued to the road. This example left the factory with a self-leveling hydro-pneumatic front suspension system, but in the interest of upgraded performance it is now fitted with front struts and an anti-roll bar from the 911S, a concession to originality that vastly improves its handling.

The history of this 911 is known right back to the beginning when it was sold new to Wayne Rindt in Appleton, Wisconsin. A succession of five owners all with recorded ownership took turns placing laps on the odometer and its present appearance suggests that all took good care of it. This 911 also comes with its factory books and tools that are still with the car. Documentation includes its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and service records.

The 911E is an iconic car that has delighted many with its power and excellent handling characteristics. Indeed, years of development contributed to one of the finest handling cars ever built. The car runs and drives well. The engine starts easily and the gearbox is smooth and positive. The steering is communicative and light in the way that has made the 911 famous. These cars are fast, nimble, and highly satisfying to drive, and with its original engine and seldom seen Conda Green livery, 9110200496 stands out amongst many of its peers.
