Porsche Crest how rare ??

hi there

i have been think and looking at early 911 but i either seem to find ALOT of T and some S cars but not alot of E's....

Well, Porsche didn't make many EARLY 911's at all, I remember something like 1500 or so "E" cars in 1972 (if I'm not mistaken).

My guess is the "T" cars (being "low end" - this said without the slightest "judgment"!) perhaps disappeared a bit faster, and the "S" cars were highly sought, but I clearly remember the "E" cars ran very well, being less "peaky" than the "S" and, of course, quite a bit faster than the "T". Maybe that is the reason the "E" is more difficult to find.

BTW, you being in the Dubai area (I'm guessing!), how is the Porsche situation in the UAE? Are you talking searching for an early Porsche in the UAE? Are there many Porsche cars, be they "early" or other, in the UAE?

Any case, kindest regards from Europe!

i seem to recall reading that about half of the early 911s(and perhaps more) were Ts. as far as the Ss and the Es, there were more Es built, but I think in some years there were actually more Ss made than Es

The E models replaced the L in 1969, with just over 2800 being produced that year. Over the next 4 years, Porsche produced approximately 32,000 T models, 9,300 Es and 9,600 S cars. (Numbers lifted from Paul Frere's book: Porsche 911 Story. As a rule, the Es were set up with hydropneumatic ride height control in the front shocks, (I suppose to compensate for the weight of luggage), sun roof and the anti-roll bar was an option. Sort of a GT as opposed to a hard-edged sports car like the S.

When I lookedi n t he back of the "911 Story" by Paul Frere, the production numbers look something like this:

1965-1967 - 10,723 all models

1967-1969 - 5,056 S model
1968-1969 - 6,618 T model
1968 - 11,610 L model
1969 - 2,826 E model

1970-1971 - 15,082 T model
1970-1971 - 4,927 E model
1970-1971 - 4,691 S model

1972-1973 - 16,933 T model
1972-1973 - 4,406 E model
1972-1973 - 5,094 S model
1973 - 1,590 RS model

Total long noses made: 135,065

So, E's are relatively rare, potenailly more rare than the S's.

I've had both E and S cars. Other than the mystique, the real difference is mainly when driving very aggressivley. Having said that, that is also the main reason folks want an S. Many E's are very similarly spec's out, and except for the hydro front suspension (most are gone) had same brakes etc. For day to day driving, I love my E. I readily admit, I bought it after unsuccessfully searching for an affordable E. You can get a great car in great shape for what you would pay for a tired S. Still, it ain't an S, but again, love my E and it gives me a clear conscience to make minor mods.
