1969 Porsche 911

For 1969, the 911 line was sorted out on both of the Atlantic with a three-model that entered production in 1968. The 912. to be replaced in by the Volks-Porsche 914, continued to in parallel, though its engine was The new 911 trio would run three years. The initial U.S. were as follows:

911T 110 DIN horsepower European (125 at 5,800 rpm, 8.6:1 CR, 110 mph top speed; base price $5,995.

911E — 140 DIN European (160 SAE) at rpm; 9.0:1 CR; 134 mph; price (coupe): $7,195.

— 170 DIN horsepower European SAE) at 6,800 rpm; 140 mph; base price $7,895.

Only the T used carburetors Weber 40 IDTs). The new E, replacing the L, and the S both sported fuel the modern way to reconcile high with low emissions. Transmission comprised Sportomatic and four- or manuals for T and E; the S was now five-speed only.

by Porsche and Bosch, the new fuel-injection was a mechanical type similar to the one by Mercedes, with a squirter at cylinder (making it a multipoint and a double-row, six-plunger pump by toothed belt from the camshaft; tubes delivered to the ports just below.

An fuel pump fed the injection check valves in the injectors at a set pressure from the injection-pump The ram tubes and a richer mixture power at higher crank while reducing pollutants at rpm. To combat the old plug-fouling a capacitive-discharge (CD) ignition was

Fuel injection permitted power-boosting changes. The E reverted to the 911 cam profile, which was wilder the superseded L’s. The S had slightly compression and reshaped inlet plus an extra oil cooler for reliability with the higher

Crankcases switched from to cast magnesium construction.

The shape would last three decades. Here, an from 1964.

There was an visual change for ’69: flared wheel openings, by wider brakes that E and S track width by 0.4-inch. The S got six-inch-wide wheels. Less was a 2.25-inch (57-mm) wheelbase — to 89.3 inches/2,268 mm via longer rear semi-trailing

Despite an unchanged drivetrain fore/aft weight distribution up more even, going 41.5/58.5 percent to 43/57. At the time, the previous Nadella shafts gave way to Lobro with Rzeppa constant-velocity the shafts were also slightly rearward from the joints.

Another new chassis for 1969 Porsche 911 was Boge hydropneumatic front struts, were standard for the E and early S an option for later Ss and all Ts. Replacing the front struts, torsion and shocks, they kept the at a specified height regardless of or cargo load.

Unlike Citroen’s oleopneumatic their pump was not engine-driven but by suspension movement. Though the ’69 wheelbase shifted weight distribution forward 1.5 percent, this was balanced on cars by deleting the front bar.

Still, final remained the dominant handling in any Porsche 911, though it was a surprise to the skilled, knowledgeable

The Boge struts were of a new 911E Comfort Package was optional in Europe and standard in the States. Also included 14-inch wheels and tires, brake calipers, a more highway horn, bumper rub bright-metal rocker-panel trim, deck script, velour a leather-covered steering wheel, and an oil gauge.

Fuel injection and the CD ignition terrific improvements in 911 drivability. The E, for could lug down to 35-40 mph and pull smoothly away, yet it was as fast as a ‘ 67 S. Road ‘s example ran 0-60 in 8.4 the standing quarter in 16 seconds, and hit 130 mph averaging near 20 mpg overall.

1969 refinements were a new heater fan, flat-black arms, and an electric rear-window The last was also standard for which exchanged their and noisy plastic zip-out window for fixed wraparound that made things open but more comfy and In all, the ‘ 69s were the tractable and pleasurable Porsches the 356C .
