This outstanding 911 E is a brilliant testament to the potent mid-level 911 variant that emerged in Porsche’s lineup in 1969. Producing 140 hp and capable of a top speed of 134 mph, the 911 E nearly matched the power of the first 911 S, a recognized benchmark of Porsche road car performance.
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 put on the market and soon acquired by Pino Angiulli, a manager of Milano Auto Repair in Clifton, New Jersey. Known in the local Porsche community for his authentic marque restorations, Mr. Angiulli carefully disassembled the 911 and conducted a thorough restoration.
The engine’s original crankcase was restored, while new valves, guides, pistons, liners, rings, bearings, and head studs were installed. The gearbox, suspension, brakes, and Bosch fuel injectors were all carefully rebuilt, and SSI heat exchangers and a new Dansk exhaust system rounded out the major mechanical attention.
The Cork leatherette interior was reupholstered in original form, while the body was bare-metal blasted and refinished in correct Glasurit White Grey paint. The steering wheel, air-conditioning, and Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio were reconditioned, and a new light gray headliner and Wilton wool carpets completed the interior appointments. A thorough digital file of photographs that accompany the sale of the car document Mr. Angiulli’s meticulous restoration process.
In May 2010, the stunning restoration received much-deserved acclaim at the Northern New Jersey Region PCA Concours d’Elegance, where the 911 E garnered a First Place in the Drive-Bi Event. When acquired by an esteemed Long Island dealer of fine Porsches in late spring 2011, the car had accrued only 50 miles since restoration.
In August 2011, the 911 E was acquired by the consignor, a Florida-based collector. Minimally driven over the intervening period, the 911 was awarded a score of 391 out of a possible 400 points at the 2013 Brumos Porsche Gathering.
Authentic throughout, notable details include the correct Hella fog lamps, a factory roll bar, date-coded Fuchs alloy wheels, 911 S-style ventilated brakes, and cosmetic trim, this powerful example of Stuttgart engineering is accompanied by tools, restoration photos, and manuals. The car remains in show-worthy condition, capable of trademark 911 ferocity and handling on vintage tours like the Copperstate 1000, and is equally suitable for continued club showings.
