The 1970 Porsche 911E would be considered part of the Porsche 911 C-Series, which would also see the model’s first increase in engine capacity from 1,991cc to 2,199cc commonly referred to as the 2.2L. The increase was achieved by increasing the cylinder bores from 80mm to 84mm. Other improvements were made to the engine during this time, including revised cylinder heads with larger valves and stronger connecting rods. The 1970 Porsche 911E, which ran alongside a 911T and 911S, could now offer 155 horsepower and an official top speed of 137mph. Most importantly, however, the torque increased and the torque curve was flatter, meaning the engine was more flexible and the car was easier to drive. Additionally, in an effort to reduce weight, the 1970 Porsche 911E was given aluminum central bumper sections and an engine compartment cover of the same material. To help with rust problems, the body itself was given a PVC seal. The base price for the 911E Coupe would fall in the $7,800 range. It is estimated that approximately 4,927 models of the C-Series 911E were manufactured.

Finding the right Porsche 911 from Porsche’s 50-year lineup of 911 models can be quite daunting, but choosing the car that’s right for you can often boil down to assessing your patience for old-world charms, your expectations for performance, and your budget. If you’ve determined that the 911E is the right model for you, always be sure to find the model that is in the best condition you can afford. This can save you thousands in restoration and repair down the road. While 911’s are generally reliable, don’t forget that these are still luxury European sports cars and the cost of ownership can add up quickly.

Of course, it is always in your best interest to have a third party inspection performed by a qualified and experienced classic Porsche mechanic.
