PORSCHE 911 CARRERA MFI 2.7 - TOP CONDITION
The 911 Carrera MFI
Porsche’s 1973 Carrera RS was a runaway success for the company, and it was clear that they wanted to continue its success into 1974. However, newly enacted crash safety standards in the United States mandated the end of the “long-hood” chassis. This brought about the advent of the new G-series of 911, introducing shock-mounted bumpers, a stronger floor pan, revised lighting, and other new features.
The new 911 Carrera in European-specification retained the fantastic 210 brake horsepower, type 911/83, 2.7-litre mechanically fuel injected engine from the legendary 1973 Carrera RS. The fenders 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.
This 911 Carrera MFI
One of 1,036 European-specification Porsche 911 Carrera coupés produced for the 1974 model year, the example offered here was delivered new at 1975. Finished in striking Grand Prix White over copper red leatherette, the car has covered a mere 157.110 kilometres from new.
The Carrera 2.7 offered here was kept by the first owner for nearly 20 years (1975-1993). In 2011 the Porsche Certificate was requested to Porsche Ibérica. The car stayed in Spain until 2012. In March 2012, the car went to Belgium, where it was last registered in February 2014.
Continuing the brilliant performance of the iconic Carrera RS, the 1974 Carrera 2.7 MFI model is a wonderful automobile in its own right, providing the performance of the RS for a fraction of its price. Rarer than their older sibling, with only 1,036 examples produced, finding a well-maintained example can often be difficult.
This unique and very early example presents exceptionally well and retains its matching motor and gearbox.
The car comes with:
- Belgian registration documents
- Old Spanish registration papers showing
- Technical inspection 2014
- Original pouch with original books including service books
- Certificate of Authenticity
- Invoices for services carried out
