This 2.4E was delivered new in the USA in the beautiful classical color scheme of Silver metallic with a black leatherette interior. This car stayed with his owner for a long time till 2004, proven by the records. It moved to Europe around 2016, by then the Porsche was in need of some TLC and a minor restoration.
This stunning '73 911E was completely disassembled and gone through, the body returned to factory-fresh condition. Beginning with a very solid and original car, the body was completely stripped before being finished in its original color. A lot of attention was paid to panel alignment and barely any welding was necessary.
In addition, extensive corrosion protection was applied to ensure the body remains in good shape for years.
The interior has been completely refinished with new carpets, headliner, doors,... We can also see factory Recaro sport seats; a rarity! In accordance with its COA, this U.S. delivered example retains its factory fitted options like the electric sunroof and radio.
European H4 Bosch Headlamps have been installed along with factory Bosch front and rear Euro marker lenses. Mechanical components were restored wherever possible, and any worn parts replaced with new ones. Attention to detail was maintained at all times, and all components and systems work and perform as they should.
Mechanically, the original matching numbers engine has been fully rebuilt and upgraded wherever possible; maximizing performance and reliability. In addition, the MFI injection system has been re-freshened and re-calibrated. The engine is now up to what we call 2.7 RS level (and maybe a bit more)
During this rebuild, a limited slip differential was installed. Suspension wise, new Koni shocks have been installed and all bushings and suspension parts have been replaced or freshened. A front strut brace was installed as well. Tires are recent Avon examples.
Since restoration, the car has only done some 1.000 shakedown kilometers.
Accompanying the car are its original manuals, factory tool kit, invoices, old titles and a COA. This well sorted, beautifully finished 1973 911E offers an opportunity to acquire the final year of the highly desirable long hood, air cooled MFI 911 that is fully restored and ready to be enjoyed!
This is a true gentlemans racer, a real driver oriented 911... meanwhile even giving you a hint of "Top Gun" feeling!
