After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillacs would smoke its droopy tail. The solution: to take the 2.7 litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board.
This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2,687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977.
Returning back to Europe from Japan, this very nice Porsche 911 in desirable S specification comes with many extras such as; original Fuchs wheels, 5 speed gearbox and air-conditioning, to name a few. The car was recently lavished with a service to renew all the joints and rubbers at a cost of €2,700. With an odometer reading circa 84,000km and believed to be genuine, this 911 S coupe, so elegantly finished in silver with black leather interior, is sure to please its next 911 enthusiast.
