Despite only being in production for a couple of years (1976-77) the 911 “Carrera 3” is an historically important model, combining two significant elements from the long 911 timeline. It was the latest incarnation of the Carrera name, originally applied to the 911 with the legendary RS in 1972, and the Carrera 3.0’s engine was essentially the same as its sibling the 930 Turbo, without the forced air induction.
For its time the Carrera 3.0 was an extremely powerful sports car. Its 3 litre horizontally opposed, air cooled engine, using Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, produced 200 bhp at 6000 rpm and 188 lb/ft of torque at 4200 rpm. This car was offered with the 5 speed version of Porsche’s legendary 915 manual gearbox.
The wonderful Carrera 3.0 Targa offered here was originally German delivered and is one of only 365 left hand drive units built that year. This ever popular model is fitted with the desirable 915 manual gearbox and presented in the classic colour scheme of black on black. Described to be in a good condition throughout, this car is sure to turn heads and offer its new owner an engaging driving experience.
