The iconic Porsche 911 was introduced in 1963 as a successor to the 356, the company's first model. The initial design sketches for what later became the 911 were drawn by "Butzi" Porsche (Ferdinand Porsche's grandson) in 1959. Originally called the 901, the model name was quickly changed to 911 after Peugeot complained that it had exclusive rights to car names with three letters and a zero in the middle!

The first iteration of the 911 featured a 128 hp flat six "boxer" engine displacing 1991cc. The more powerful 911S appeared in 1966 (158 hp), the 128 hp model being renamed 911L in 1967. Fuel injection was introduced in 1968, and the 911L become the 911E. The engine displacement was raised to 2.2L in 1968, and engine output of the 911E increased to 153 hp. While this was less than the 173 hp of the Porsche 911S now offered, the 911 E was quicker in acceleration to 160mph.

The 911E presented here was originally delivered to the USA, where it spent its life. It has been recently imported to the UK, and comes with full UK registration papers.It has a recent MOT and is Tax Exempt. The car is painted Gemini Blue with contrasting unmarked black interior. The correct 911E engine unit fitted in the car, which benefits from having been converted to run on Weber carburettors rather than the original and somewhat troublesome mechanical fuel injection system . This give excellent throttle response which combined with the excellent handling of the early type 911's making for a fast and fun driving experience.Fitted with correct Fuchs "Five Leaf" wheels and all matching Kumho 195/65 15 Tyres and an Alpine CD Radio.

Prices for Porsches 911 have risen strongly in recent years. This vehicle represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a fully sorted Porsche 911 at a reasonable price.
