Auction Sales History

1972 Porsche 911 E 2.4 Coupé

1973 Porsche 911E Coupe

The car was delivered new in 1973 to Joseph Schneider Johnson-Bozzani Porsche dealership in Phoenix, Arizona. He kept it until 1984, when it was sold to Stim Kennedy, Denver, Colorado. Kennedy drove it for two years and sold it in 1986 to Tom Reed, also in Denver. Shortly thereafter, Reed sold the 911E to Terry Padgeham, also in Denver. Padgeham kept the yellow for two years and then sold it in 1988 to Mark and Rita Carver, in Parker, Colorado, who drove it until 1994. At that point Dale Thero, of Littleton, Colorado, bought it and kept it until 2003. That year, Marty Dieffenbach made Thero an offer he couldn’t refuse and drove the 911E until 2007 when Bill Jacobs bought it.
