Porsche's 911E model of 1969-1973 essentially replaced the short-lived 911L (Luxus).
The 911E was designed to be the more comfortable, more drivable model of 911 – fitting between the tamer
911T (Touring) and the high-performance type 911S (Super). In these years, the least-expensive model in
Porsche's range was comprised of the 912, followed by the type 914.
These struts were standard
equipment on 911E models from 1969 through 1971. This innovative design may
have been a little too clever, as 911E owners have almost universally swapped these struts out for traditional struts
and torsion bars.
Intended as the luxury model, the 911E came standard (in most markets) with the "comfort" package of features: including ventilated brake discs with aluminum calipers, velour carpeting, a leather-covered steering wheel, heavy bumper rub strips and rubber guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, and gold-colored script on the rear deck.
Long-time supplier Karmann GmbH built Coupe bodies for Porsche until the factory expansion was fully functional and Porsche was finally able to produce enough Targas and Coupes to meet demand.
