Porsche's 911 is an automotive phenomenon like no other. Its tail-heavy configuration has been described as a 'triumph of engineering over design' and its maker sought to pension it off as much as 40 years ago. Yet it is still with us, still being developed and refined, and still frequently trouncing the opposition on road and track. In 1968, the model's wheelbase was increased by 57mm and the rear overhang reduced by the same amount. The following year the engine capacity was enlarged to 2.2-litres and then to 2.4-litres in 1971. The latter examples were offered in three levels of tune, namely: T (130bhp), E (165bhp) and S (190bhp).
Offered as a stalled restoration which has been dismantled and dry stored for over twenty years, this 911E is 1 of just 1,304 E Coupes made for the 1970 model year (C Series). The car is understood to have been supplied new to Belgium (or so its secondary chassis plate would imply) and was subsequently imported and UK road registered during 1978 (hence the ‘S’ registration). Sold strictly 'as seen' but as a potentially rewarding project, there are no front wings and doubtless missing other parts. The engine is a later 911/81 2.7-litre unit.
