The 1971 model-year would mark the beginning of the D-Series of Porsche 911 production. While practically identical to the C-Series of production, there was a few detail changes that, when inspected carefully, can help you easily identify a D-Series 911. For example, the most obvious change to the 1971 Porsche 911E Coupe was the addition of a new twist knob to the center of the glove box. Three-speed wipers with an intermittent setting are also a clue, while a revised, sealed chain tensioner is also a give-away. One of the most important advancements to come down the line during this era was the hot-dip zinc coating that was added to exposed sections of the underbelly to aide in rust protection. When selling your 1971 Porsche 911E Coupe, these are a few characteristics that you can point out to potential buyers. During the D-Series of production, it is estimated that 4,927 911E models were produced.


1971 Porsche 911E Coupe Seller’s Guide

The Coupe model of the 1971 Porsche 911E is characterized by its fixed roof in a fastback curvature and ran alongside the popular Targa option. There are many Porsche enthusiasts that believe the Coupe is the epitome of the 911 series, as it has a sleek curvature that cannot be duplicated, while others believe the open-air driving experience of the Targa is nothing short of exceptional. Of course, this is all personal preference. When selling your 1971 Porsche 911E Coupe, buyer will not have to be concerned with the top like they do with a Targa, however they will want to know about any rust that may be on the car. Additionally, educated buyers will want to verify your Porsche 911 is an original by comparing engine and chassis numbers to Porsche records. Always be prepared to assist in this step.
