Let’s talk about this classic Porsche! In August 1970, the Porsche 911E D-Series would be introduced. While it was practically identical to the previously released C-Series version of the Porsche 911E, there were a few visual changes. For example, a new twist knob was fitted to the center of the glove box and three-speed wipers with an intermittent setting were added. The 1971 Porsche 911E also featured advancements in rust protection, as exposed sections of the underbody received hot-dip zinc coating. Many collectors and enthusiasts argue that the D-Series 911E is worth seeking out for this reason, yet many argue that after all these years rust can find its way into any body. Other changes to the 1971 Porsche 911E C-Series included moving the fuel pump to the rear of the car, a revised and sealed chain tensioner, and crankshaft oil-squirters. Today, many Porsche 911E buyers find that the extra torque of the 2.2L Porsche 911E makes it more attractive than the earlier 911s, however this is personal preference.
Perhaps the biggest Buyer’s Tip for the 1971 Porsche 911E is to do your due diligence and buy the best car you can afford, because restoration and parts are very expensive and you can end up saving thousands in the long run by exploring the best options you can. It always helps to align yourself with someone in the industry that knows what they’re doing, particularly when you’re making a serious financial investment like purchasing your first Porsche 911.
