This is a superb LHD example of one of the highly desirable period successors to the Carrera RS: the Euro Spec 1975 Porsche 911 2.7 MFI; a car which shares the same RS 2.7 mechanical fuel injected engine, as well as suspension and gearbox. It also comes in its original 70’s colour scheme of Light Green.The 75 spec also had electric windows.
Porsche’s 1973 Carrera RS was a runaway success for the company, and the plan was to continue this success story into 1974. However, newly enacted US crash safety standards produced the new G-series of 911, introducing shock-mounted bumpers, a stronger floor pan, revised lighting, and in the case of the US-market cars, a return to the 175 BHP engine used in the 911S.
Significantly however the ‘European-Specification’ 1974 Carrera retained the remarkable 210 brake horsepower, type 911/83, 2.7-litre mechanically fuel injected engine from the 1973 Carrera RS, as well as the suspension and gearbox. The arches and rear quarters in the new Carrera 2.7 ‘MFI’ were tastefully flared to accept seven- and eight-inch-wide Fuchs forged alloy wheels. Underneath, there were new forged aluminium rear trailing arms, and the Carreras were fitted with 20-millimetre front and 18-millimetre rear anti-roll bars, Bilstein sport shock absorbers and struts, and, of course, large ventilated disc brakes at all four corners. Power was delivered through a Type 915/06 five-speed manual transaxle, and the handling characteristics are therefore virtually identical to an RS.
In short it became the direct successor the Carrera RS, was built in smaller numbers and was more expensive at the time, and over time it has also become significantly more desirable than the American Spec version.
The car has been superbly restored to virtual concours condition with minimum mileage since.
