One in a Million.
This 911 is in our view a rock solid keeper.
20 years ago we didn’t appreciate cars in the same way, they were what they were…….
However, the values have risen to a point where some of these cars are serious investments.
This particular example we think, is pure gold.
50 year old Porsche, like this are uber rare. Less than 2000 911 E coupe were made for 1969, and of the survivors only a small percentage of restorations are truly good.
But this is no restoration and that’s where the gold lies.
As the market gains in sophistication, more questions are asked, higher standards are demanded and originality becomes more and more valuable.
A restoration can be applied to a 911 that barely exists, but is that the same value as ‘untouched’?
Kept in its current condition, you have a Porsche, an investment, that will become ever more rare and ever more desirable as tiime passes. Some of the originals will deteriorate, or they will be subject to repairs or restorations that detract from their state. No more original cars can be created.
The value of originality is only just beginning to be recognised as the collector market becomes better educated.
With an original you know what you are getting, you don’t need to worry about what’s under the surface, you have a car with provenance, with a clear story.
So here is a unique 911 that ticks all the boxes.
This 911 is one to keep.
Think of the alternatives……. You could buy a moderate 911 and have it fully restored, the cost of which, if done properly, is likely to cost more than six figures.
Just 27,243 miles and rock solid provenance. The history archive which accompanies this car is fascinating, with documents, invoices and registration details dating back to the very beginning.
We believe it is largely first original paint with just a few minor touch-ins carried out in the 1980’s. The body work and panels appear (and are supported by history) to be completely accident and corrosion free. The interior is as it left the factory, original vinyl seats, carpets, dash, clocks, headliner and brightwork… amazing.
The motor is undisturbed and sweet, it does not appear to have ever been removed from the car…..

On the road, this is a time-warp example. It has the feeling and character that cannot be reproduced, nothing can recreate the way a Porsche was put together by the factory.

The opportunity is here.
