1971 Porsche 911E

The 911E is a model that I particularly like. It won’t have the frenzied investment potential of a 911S, but it makes for a good investment while also possessing a few advantages over the 911T. All 911 models from these years are worthwhile in their own right, though there is a shifting balance between driver and investor and finding the right car is not always easy. The example we see here comes in the very period-correct color of Sepia Brown: a one-owner 1971 Porsche 911E, located in California, with a claimed 16,000 miles on it. Sepia Brown would not qualify as my favorite shade on a 911, but brown on brown does tend to fit the period and still serves as a departure from many of the standard colors we see today.

The seller has provided a whole host of detail pictures, as well as a variety of receipts to document some of the work done to the car. There aren’t a lot of great full shots, but in many cases with a car like this it’s the details that matter most. Everything here appears to be original and as a one-owner car we can hope for a thoroughly documented history. The mileage will need verification, though with a recently rebuilt engine mileage concerns tend to be less of an issue on a car of this age. All in all, a very nice car for the period. Bidding currently sits at $78,900, which is below where I’d expect and also quite a ways from the BIN price. Presumably bids will have to come up quite a bit, but perhaps with some work post auction someone could grab this at a decent value.
