We are pleased to present this 1969 Porsche 911 E Coupe finished in Irish Green over a black interior. For the 1969 model year the 911 E received an updated Bosch mechanical fuel injection system (MFI) shared with the 911 S, making it one of the more desirable 2.0 L variants on the market. Said to have spent its entire life in California up until the current owner’s purchase in 2008, this 1969 Coupe has since been treated to a professional bare metal respray, interior refurbishment and some tasteful customizations. Reported to have been properly maintained with a leak down test carried out within the last 100 miles, this 911 E is stated to be in fantastic running order and is being offered by a private seller in Greene County, Ohio.
In 2016 under the current ownership, this 911 E was subjected to a professional glass-out bare metal respray in its desirable factory original color of Irish Green. The floor plans have been replaced and the paint is noted to be in great overall condition with a few minor imperfections as detailed in the photo gallery. This early model 911 highlights original chrome brightwork, dual sideview mirrors and “sugar-scoop” headlight bezels. Customizations include an RS-style front bumper and aftermarket Fuchs-style wheels which come in dressed in Falken tires from 2012.
Inside, the black interior has been partially refurbished and outfitted with GTS Classics front seats featuring plaid center inserts. The dashboard has been refinished, a MOMO 3-spoke steering has been equipped and new carpeting has been installed in the front trunk. The original headliner, door panels and rear seats are retained, and the seller confirms the interior to be in very nice condition with some age-appropriate wear. All gauges and accessories are also stated to be fully functional.
Power comes from a correct replacement 2.0 L flat-six mechanically fuel-injected engine which was installed under previous ownership. Approximately 140 HP is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed Type 901-09 manual transmission. An adjustable Koni suspension has been installed and the ride height has been lowered by 1.5”. The engine was removed and inspected during the respray and found to be in satisfactory condition. All routine maintenance has been carried out and a leak down test was also performed within the last 100 miles which yielded the following results (2019).
