1971' Porsche 911
1971 porsche 911e 2. 2 manual coupe
901 5 speed dog leg gearbox
silver metallic / 8080
black leather/ basket weave
beautifully restored and upgraded over the past 17 years after being imported from california where the car had covered just 37000 mile. In the hands of just 2 owners from new.
everything the car has needed, it has had. Its been lovingly cared for in the hands of a true enthusiast until his passing in 2019. the cars history file accounts for every single thing done to the car over the past 17 years including all of its history from its life in the states.
there is a photo album documenting the restoration as well as a full log of works carried out on the day they were carried out, verging on obsessive.
the car has now covered 56000 miles and has practically been rebuilt top to bottom in this time. To restore a car to this standard would far exceed my asking price.
to start with the mechanicals, the car now runs triple weber carburettors, 911s cams, a high torque, lightweight starter motor, a high pressure fuel pump, koni classic suspension front and rear, wevo semi solid engine mounts, ebc drilled and grooved discs, ebc pads all round, wevo short shift with 915 housing, stainless steel heat exchangers, dansk stainless steel exhaust, battery isolator, front strut brace, much more but you get the idea, if it could be upgraded, it was.
the body was completely stripped to bare metal, panels replace. If neccessary and repainte. In its original 8080h silver metallic and finished with new rubbers and seals everywhere
all brightwork was either replaced or rechromed
the original fuchs have been refurbished and are perfect with new pirelli cinturato tyre. Including a matching spare.
inside its had a brand new carpet set, a new momo prototipo wheel, a new dash board, very nice period “coco mats” a becker monza stereo which gives the car a period look but with modern technology. The only thing thats not been re-upholstered are the front seats, its a tough decision whether to do them or not as theyre in good order and allows the car to retain its soul. To re-upholster them would be a shame.
in summary, this is a stunning example of a very well sorted 911e. It’s not perfect - it gets driven. But its really not far off. I think you would go a long way to find a pre impact bumper 911 as well sorted as this one for the money. Ive been fortunate to own and drive many over the years, this car is special. Its an absolute hoot to drive whilst remaining elegant and timeless.
whoever buys the car will be very happy with it.
