This outstanding 911 E is a brilliant testament to the potent 911 variant that emerged in Porsche’s lineup in 1969. The 911 E’s performance closely followed the 911 S, and it was dubbed the “secret weapon from Zuffenhausen.”

In early 2007, this car’s known history began with its discovery in long-term storage by a San Francisco-based enthusiast. Believed to have been sitting without operation for 20 years, the 911 was acquired by Pino Angiulli of Milano Auto Repair in Clifton, New Jersey. Known in the local Porsche community for his meticulous work, Mr. Angiulli conducted a thorough restoration. The engine, transaxle, suspension, and brakes were rebuilt, the Cork leatherette interior was reupholstered, and the body was bare-metal blasted and repainted. A set of photographs that accompanies the sale documents Mr. Angiulli’s detailed process.

In May 2010, this 911 E reportedly garnered a First Place at a New Jersey PCA Concours and was awarded a score of 391 of a possible 400 points at the 2013 Brumos Porsche Gathering.

Notable factory-appointed options include a roll bar, air-conditioning, and special-order White (Light) Gray paint, and the 911 E was serviced at Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2014. In an ideal specification and accompanied by tools, restoration photos, and manuals, the car remains an exceptional example of Porsche’s much-admired 911 E.
