Now available is this 1969 Porsche 911E Sunroof Coupe. Introduced in 1969 to replace the 911L model, this long-wheelbase 911E came with a rare factory sunroof and Signal Green Special Paintwork. It is said to have spent the early years of its life in California before moving to Texas in the late 1980s. The car has been continuously restored throughout the years and upgraded with a 5-speed manual gearbox in place of the original Sportomatic transmission, as well as a larger 2.2L flat-six carbureted engine sourced from a 1971 911E. Accompanied by records dating back to the mid-1980s along with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this 911E has been cherished and carefully maintained by a dedicated enthusiast over the last several years and is now being offered by its seller out of Florida.
In 1991, this 911E is said to have been stripped to bare metal and refinished in its rare factory Special Paintwork color of Signal Green. Some of the exterior trim is said to have been replaced over the past several years and the paint is described to remain beautifully presented with only a couple of minor imperfections on the rear decklid. Having spent its life between California, Texas, and South Carolina, the body, floor, and wheel arches are also reported to be solid and original. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings. Factory features include chrome window trims and headlight bezels, a single driver’s side mirror, an electric sunroof, and 14” Fuchs wheels which have been recently refinished and dressed in new period-style Vredestein tires.
The Beige leatherette interior has been refreshed over the last few years with new carpeting and seat upholstery. The dash gauges, lights, and sunroof are all reported to be fully functional, and the original headliner exhibits some light staining and curled edges.
Power comes from a 1971 911E-sourced 2.2L flat-six engine with Weber Tipo 40IDTP3C carburetors. The engine is believed to have been installed before the maintenance records begin in the mid-1980s, around the same time the 5-speed 901 manual dog-leg gearbox was equipped. The front suspension has also been upgraded to replace the original hydropneumatic struts. The car was freshly serviced in June of 2021 and a collection of maintenance records are provided for reference in the photo gallery including the results from a recent compression test.
This sale will include a collection of records, a toolkit, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a Kardex, a spare Fuchs wheel dated from September of 1968, and a clean title. For any enthusiast in search of a classic long hood 911, this stunning Signal Green 911E Sunroof Coupe is not to be overlooked.
