1969 Porsche 911E

The 911E is a particular favorite of mine for its balance between the entry-level 911T and the top-of-the-line 911S. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to denigrate the 911S, but prices for almost any example are through the roof and you may even reach six figures for cars in only fair condition. While a 911E is no cheap alternative, generally they can be had for quite a bit less cash than a S, but still provide many of the attributes and amenities that distinguish these cars from their entry-level counterparts. The example we have featured here is a restored 1969 Polo Red Porsche 911E located in Atlanta. The seller notes that the mileage cannot be verified but that he suspects the odometer to have rolled over, putting it at 168,650 miles. 1969 was the first year of production of the 911E, which mated a fuel-injected 2.0 liter flat-six to a 5-speed manual transmission delivering 140 hp to the rear wheels, all supported by Porsche’s hydro-pneumatic suspension.

Polo Red is such a great looking color! It provides a vividness similar to many of the other bright colors Porsche has offered without being too ostentatious. It isn’t a subtle color in the way that the shades of burgundy can be, but still seems to possess something that draws the eye and allows you to linger over it for quite some time. Fantastic. As with any pre-1974 911 the price will be quite high with the only question being whether it will eclipse six figures. Given the purported mileage it may come up short of that, but the restoration looks well done and with bidding already at $83,100 then perhaps it will climb a bit more. Either way this looks to be an excellent example of a 911E and should make its future owner quite happy.
