The condition and originality of this vehicle is testament to the care and attention by its former keepers. It’s rare to find such a highly original car that retains its DNA and patina that cannot be replicated when project vehicles and partly stripped vehicles are ‘restored’ for resale.
The 911E model was considered to be the ‘smart choice alternative’ to the 911S model, as the engine power characteristics were not as peaky as the S, yet it retains all the character and charisma of the Mechanical Fuel Injection. The type 911/52 engine, rated at 185bhp (SAE) gives ample power and flexibility for spirted drives, or long distance touring
