This 1970 Porsche 911E coupe is a lifelong California example having been delivered to its original owner thru Martin-Johnson Porsche, Oakland, CA. on 6/2/70 with 008 miles on the odometer. The Porsche Maintenance Record reflects entries for service at the delivering dealer along with stating the VIN# as 9110220389 and the engine # as 6200607.
Classic Cars Ltd. has been asked to represent this 911E for the current owner who purchased the car from us in August of 2021. While his intentions were to drive and own the car for the long term, he recently received an allocation for a GT3 from Porsche and needs to make room for the new arrival. While enjoying every one of the roughly 1,500 miles he added to the odometer over the last 6 months, the decision has been made to make the 911E available to a new caretaker.
Under the current owner’s possession, he added new bonnet weather-stripping, new front turn signal/tail lamp seals, drain plugs, new shift knob, Momo Prototipo steering wheel with AASE leather Porsche crest horn button, Coco mats, new Porsche keys, 911E Porsche Classic tool kit and H4 headlamp assemblies that were not installed as he favored the classic look of the sugar scoops.
The previous (2nd) owner purchased the car in July of 1989 and maintained an “Auto Record” detailing fuel, service and maintenance performed on the Porsche along with chronologically documenting the cars mileage from 1989 to 2017. Copies of receipts are included with the car reflecting the detailed invoices from 1989-2021 and can be seen in the photo gallery. The most recent restoration receipts from 2017-2021 are shown separately.
In 1997, the car underwent an extensive interior restoration documented by the photos shown in the gallery. Beginning in 2017 the Porsche received considerable mechanical refurbishment with highlights as follows:
- Complete engine overhaul including clutch, fuel pump, batteries and top & bottom end $14,319.10 – 12/9/17 / 145,795 mi.
- Complete transmission overhaul inc. new synchros $3,846.95 – 12/16/2017 145,795 mi.
- New braking system front & rear including new rotors, caliper rebuilds, pads, related components. ($3,150.64) 8/10/18 / 146,148 mi.
- New Yokohama tires 1/5/18
- New fuel tank, filter & pump, fuel lines, hoses and clamps. ($5,515.50) 3/8/21 / 146,204 miles

- New leather seats, recover rear seats, install completely new interior and carpet kit. ($4,620.25) 5/12/21
The 2.2 liter port fuel injected flat 6-cylinder numbers match the #’s shown on the original Maintenance Record as does the VIN number of the 911E. Equipment includes a five-speed manual transaxle, short shift kit, factory bucket seats and 15” Fuchs “S” type wheels. Several new and take-off parts will be included in the sale. If the new owner chooses, the factory 14” Fuchs wheels will be also be included in the sale, however shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer.
The previous owner repaired the floor pans in 1997 and minor patch repair was completed to areas surrounding the rear glass. The extensive restoration photos show the quality of the effort that took place in the 1997 timeframe. The interior and carpets along with other interior components were restored in May, 2021.
The car is finished in its original Light Ivory (1111/131) and features a single left-side mirror, chrome rocker panel trim, and black rubber moldings and bumper inserts. The car was hit from the rear at a stop light in 1994 (repair receipt in gallery). The only damage was to the rear when, according to the previous owner, the car behind started off too soon while he was still stopped. The muffler was replaced as well as the panel behind the license plate, bumper guards/pads and reflectors. Rear quarters and engine cover were resprayed at that time as well. From the repair document (in photo gallery), it appear the front bumper and lower portion of the hood (below the crest) were resprayed, bumper guard and pad were replaced at the same time the car was in for the repair work but were not related to the impact from the rear. Other than the rear collision at the stoplight the previous owner said no other collision damage during his 32 year ownership.
Close-up photos of the body, paint, and trim are provided in the gallery below. Paint meter readings can also be found in the gallery and support factory paint (except where repairs noted in previous paragraph) with an overall average of 5.82 mils from measurements of the entire car with the lowest reading of 3.04mils and 9.15mils at the high end.
Refurbished 15″ Fuchs wheels with 2/73 date codes wear Yokohama Avid tires purchased in 2018. The 911E was equipped from the factory with self-leveling hydropneumatic front struts, but is now fitted with Koni inserts front and Koni shocks in rear. Braking is provided by discs at each corner. Rotors and pads were replaced and calipers rebuilt within the last 2,000 miles.
The overhauled cabin features recently re-upholstered and refurbished interior. A 3-spoke Momo Prototipo leather wrapped steering wheel frames a central 8k-rpm tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and VDO gauges. Additional features include a 5-speed transmission with a short shifter, Coco floor mats, 3-point seat belts, and a Blaupunkt Aspen SQR24 cassette radio.
Currently 47,750 miles are shown on the five-digit odometer, less than 2K of which were added since the mechanical rebuild. Total mileage is unknown but believed and chronologically documented to be 147,750 miles.
Engine stamping *6200607* is shown in the photos and matches the engine number listed on the original Porsche delivery documents.
Included with the sale are the original Porsche Maintenance Booklet, 911 Owner’s Manual, the owner’s “Record Book”, Haynes & Motorbooks Repair Manuals, Porsche mechanical fuel injection manual, and take off lug nuts. New and take-off parts shown in the photos are included.
This 911E is offered on consignment by the selling dealer on behalf of the current owner.
