This left-hand drive 1970 Porsche 911E Targa is a beautiful car that benefits from having had a huge amount of work – and money – spent on it in the last year or so.
The 2.2-litre engine has covered just 100 miles since an extremely through – and well documented – full rebuild by talented Porsche specialist Richard Chamberlain at CTR Developments. This alone cost £22,000 and included a new clutch and heat exchangers, and sensible modifications such as oil-feed timing chain tensioners. It’s the most complete engine rebuild we’ve seen on a Porsche 911. You can see photographs of the rebuild here.
The bodywork is finished in Signal Orange and is in quite stunning condition, following a thorough back to metal restoration with a full photographic and paper record. This was done by Andrew Barry of Home Grown Hotrods as his own personal project. Please click here to see a selection of the restoration photos. The paintwork has been beautifully applied and is flawless. Also, click here to see photos of the underside of the Porsche.
The interior has the original black basketweave seats and is in generally very good original condition. Modern inertia reel seatbelts (with period buckles) have been fitted, together with rear seatbelts.
Originally a US-market car, this 911E came to the UK in 1999 and has since had three owners. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity shows that the car has retained its original specification.
This really is a lovely example of a pre-impact bumper Porsche 911 with a rebuilt engine that’s not even run in yet plus a totally rust-free bodyshell.
