Description

Significance It makes sense why so many enthusiasts deem the Porsche 911 the ultimate classic car. Thanks to its unique and exciting driving dynamics, outstanding build quality, and legendary reliability, classic 911 ownership sidesteps many of the pitfalls usually associated with having an old car in your garage. With nearly 60 years of continuous production, selecting the proper classic 911 can be daunting- but without a doubt, one of the most sought-after generations is the long wheelbase, short bumper cars built between 1969 and 1973. Although the earlier short-wheelbase cars are known for their lively handling and revvy small displacement motors, the long-wheelbase cars are far more refined and much better all-around vehicles. In 1970, the 911 was offered in 3 trim lines, the carburated “T”, the fuel-injected “E”, and the highest-performing “S”- all of which were powered by a stout 2.2-liter air-cooled flat 6. About this vehicle This 1970 Porsche 911 E coupe is a wonderful example of this coveted generation of 911 and benefits from a number of upgrades, aimed at bringing the appearance and performance closer to the ultra-limited 911R race car of the era. Finished in a deep forest green,at first glance this car doesn’t look to be especially modified- until you note the Lexan rear-side window with louvers punched into it. This was an integral feature on the 911R and not only reduces weight but adds some extra ventilation into the cabin which is always nice. In the rear, the standard tail lights have been swapped out for individual round bullet style lamps, and both the bumpers and bumperettes are color matched to the body of the car. A mesh grille over the engine bay allows for the motor to breathe more easily and is a much more simple, stripped down race car look than the slats that typically cover that space. Swing open the door and you are greeted by lightweight door cards- gone are the deviating materials and storage bin- all you have now is the window crank, a strap to open the door and a handle to close it. Moving inside and the seats are a pair of lightweight buckets with significant side bolstering- designed to keep you in place during the most aggressive driving- and seat centers finished in corduroy cloth with rivets in them for ventilation- much like those you would have seen in a 1968 911R. Milled aluminum pedals offer great grip on your shoes and a battery cutoff switch has been installed in the center of the dash. The rear seats have been deleted which both reduces weight but also makes for a truly spacious area for luggage behind the seats. Sitting out back is one of the all-time great engines from Porsche- a 2.2 liter air cooled Flat-6 that was found in 911s from 1969-1971. The engine has clearly been gone through recently and is exceptionally clean throughout. Although this car started life as an “E” which meant that it was fitted from the factory with mechanical fuel injection, that system has since been swapped out for a pair of triple choke downdraft carburetors. Although when this car was new that may have been viewed as a step backwards, the carburetors are far nicer to live with and can produce better power when the engine is modified. A modified airbox offers great induction noise while a sportier dual-exit exhaust means that at full chat, this car checks all the sensory boxes you could want from an air cooled 911. Porsche made its name through building both exceptionally successful race cars, as well as fun and capable street cars and this 911 is a wonderful blend of the two. With its host of modifications, this car is a delight behind the wheel and a wonderful looking addition to any garage.
