Porsche's 911E of 1969 to 1973 replaced the short-lived 911L or "Luxury" model. The 'E' was amongst the first cars to be built on the longer (2268mm) chassis and was designed to be the most comfortable and approachable of the 911 series. It was positioned between the tamer 911T or "Touring" and the high-performance type 911S or "Super" and the 911E's designation derives from the German word for injection: "einspritzung". Jointly developed by Bosch and Porsche, the mechanical fuel injection "MFI" system used on the 911E and the 911S was similar to the system used in the Carrera 6 of 1966. In addition to giving more precise control of the fuel/air mixture and equality of distribution among the cylinders, the MFI contributed toward meeting the emissions control regulations of the time. Intended as the luxury model, the classic Porsche 911E came standard with the "comfort" package, which included ventilated brake discs with aluminum calipers, velour carpeting, a leather-covered steering wheel, heavybumper rub strips and rubber guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, and gold coloured script on the rear deck. A superb, early-supplied, 911E, this 1969 left-hand drive, Targa was originally delivered new to New Jersey in 1969 and was to remain in the ownership of the same family for over 40 years spending all of its life in a climate controlled garage in Nevada until the current custodian managed to beg, borrow and persistently pester the family for it to cross the pond. The bodywork had been subject to a high-end restoration not too long before, and the previous vendor forwarded various pictures showing this, however, being a stickler for detail, the current owner went about bringing this car back to its former glory on a no-expense-spared basis. Whilst very little bodywork needed attention, our vendor went about an obsessive engine rebuild, and a through recommissioning of the interior, mechanicals, electrics, seals etc. and all the little details that one notices, many years into ownership,yet sympathetically retaining the character of the car. The cost of the work on the engine bay alone was well in excess of £10,000, and it shows. The whole car presents wonderfully today in its original Burgundy and the Black Leatherette interior is excellent with immaculate carpets, leather, dashboard, and switchgear. The bodywork has been touched up recently and retains a good shine, and the panel gaps are straight and in good order.The car is UK Registered and is accompanied by its Porsche C of A, an independent insurance valuation by Nick Faure (£105-£115,000), acres of invoices, and possibly the largest selection (over 300) of online pictures we have ever seen. There is not a nook or cranny that hasn't been closely imaged and we urge you to have a look at https://petrolhead.smugmug.com/Porsche-Targa-1969-911E-2litre/i-pkKLhjZThis is an absolutely splendid early 911E. Deep Burgundy really suits this lovely old Porsche, and viewed in profile, the silhouette is pure unadorned, unfettered,unmolested 911. A remarkable motor car.
